    Youth has been overplayed by Experience. Women Champion in 1978 won Women Champion in 2008. With Black!!!!

    I played through this game yesterday-it was a bit of a rout! Not sure what happened to Kosteniuk; maybe she forgot her theory or maybe she was surprised by black's opening, but whatever, she played it horribly.

    11.Qxc3 has a terrible record in the databases (only over a few games admittedly)- it just gives black a very comfortable easy-to-play position.

    If you are playing Rauzer`s attack (which your well-experienced opponent knows very well) you have no right to forgot theory.

    "Standard" might be a better description
