Here is the game from the current Russian Superfinals, WGM Kosintseva - WGM Tairova with full annotations and commentary:

 

 

 

This was a nice game which showed a lot of creativity by black. WGM Tairova did not accept the idea to play for a draw with the black pieces but rather play combative chess and expect to win the game. Just because you are playing the black pieces does not mean that you should play for and expect a draw. With aggressive and creative play like black in the game above you will be able to score some points with the black pieces!
