    its a pity theres not more, there was a clever woman at one of my clubs - she beat me in a tournament game and i asked her how. 'I thought i'd just let you loose' she said. was quite smart i thought as its just what i'm prone too. but you don't see enough in clubs - maybe women find it boring?

    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.
    (Jesus wept)

    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.

    I thought you said she still had another active account here?
    If that's the case I'm amazed that she hasn't utilised it to post on the forums, harass folk, expose forum member's (homo)sexuality at their place of work... you know, that sort of thing.

    Hi Zygo.

    She has and is laying very low.
    Of course I cannot reveal the ID suffice to say she is playing chess
    which is all she really wanted to do, without having to adopt this
    RHP persona which everyone expected of her.

    It got to the extent if she ever made a compliment it was twisted out of shape.

    Of course she enjoyed the winding up but in the end I kind of
    think she was relieved she was banned for Forum Abuse and can go
    back to simply playing chess without posting which 75% of the users do.
