One of the night clubs in Moscow hosted an unusual event - Mind Games. Among the guests were the coach of the Russian National team, Yuri Dokhoyan, Ukrainian GM, twofold winner of chess Olympiads Pawel Eljanov and beautiful Alina Kashlinskaya.

The program of the event contained three hours: blitz against Alina and Pawel, games against Dokhoyan and Eljanov and finally, the encounter against already famous machine constructed by Alexandra Kosteniuk's father, Konstantin Kosteniuk. 

21st GM in the FIDE rating list sacrificed a pawn and lost in the endgame. 

Then it turned out the machine is also a gentleman: it allowed Alina to draw. 

She managed to catch the robot on a perpetual check after the flood of sacrifices.
