  waustad: What confused me is that they are married and live in Ohio, but he is the #3 rated player for Germany.
Feb-03-10  desiobu: <aragorn69: Aren't those two a couple? Do tournament now foster domestic violence??> Ha!
Feb-03-10  Riverbeast: He had to show her who wears the pants in the family :-)
May-13-12  DanielBryant: If 38...Rd5, 39.Nxa6 Rxd7 40.Rxd7 Nxd7 41.Nc7.
May-13-12  fokers13: <danielbryant> probably much better ir 39.Re8 followed by d8=Q.....
May-13-12  inmate5: <DanielBryant: If 38...Rd5, 39.Nxa6 Rxd7 40.Rxd7 Nxd7 41.Nc7.> Good luck with that position against Zatonskih ;-) Instead, any rook move wins instantly (except for 39.Rxf8).

It's probably FIDE residency, a player has to be in a country 3 years before he or she can play for the new country so he was listed as German at the time. This used to be just 1 year but I bet it got changed after all of the ex Soviets started leaving.

  FearNoEvil: Most of them want to keep the foreign status because it helps them get invitations to FIDE events. Where title norms have requirements that American players play a certain number of foreign players.

Ohio and the Midwest are home to many Germans, as the best land along the Atlantic was already taken by the English, Irish and Dutch.

May-13-12  King Death: <FearNoEvil> If you read this I checked your profile and I never heard of you so I looked up your games here and only found this one (J Johnson vs J Cline, 1979) but what a game! I even forgot that I kibitzed on it awhile ago! It must be old age or something.

  Sneaky: For those who don't get the pun, understand that there is an American sitcom of the same name, and furthermore these two are married and have a five year old daughter. Maybe she'll see this page one day and have a little laugh.

Oh and perhaps I should add, it is Mother's Day in the USA and other civilized nations :)

May-13-12  DanielBryant: Ah, yes, I do feel a little stupid now.

  kevin86: Now the knight will hold the pawn as the rook steps aside to help it home.

  waustad: Responding to my own post, they do actually live in Germany now. If I understand correctly, AZ got her US status while she was a student in Cleveland and then moved to Long Island for a while. Anyone with more information is welcome to correct me.
