Ketevan Arakhamia-Grant, Judit Polgar and Skeeter.
These are the only three ladies whose games I have looked at in detail.
(not really Skeeters, I just dug out some combo's)
Keti, I did her section in Rampant Chess and got to know her quite well,
she thinks I'm a nutcase, also on good very terms with her husband
Jonathan, he too thinks I'm a nut.
The night before she set of for the Olympiad where Keti got her final GM norm.
I had to go around their house for some reason.
Keti was ironing her clothes. I wish I had my camera.
Mind you it's propably a good job I never.
I'd have posted a pic on The Corner with the caption.
"So this is how women chess players prepare for an Olympiad?"
Then spent the rest of my life in hiding. 🙂
Skeeter was OK, the forums miss her, she too thought I was a nutter.
Judit qualified for the World Championship candidates in the 1990's.
You have to be a very good player to do that.
No other women in history has come that close to the world title.
(might see her name one day in these 'strongest player never to become
World Champion' list that pop up once every six months.)
Never met Judit, though she would most likely class me as a nutcase as well.
I have a fourth choice. Fat Lady.
Now there is one serious nutcase.
