|Nov-14-06|| ||percyblakeney: Here's another Kanakari game from this year's Greek Team Championship. She's doing quite fine until things begin to go wrong at the tenth move:|
[Event "35th T-ch GR"]
[White "Kanakari, Konstantina"]
[Black "Pambalou, Fotini"]
1. d4 d5 2. c3 Nf6 3. Nf3 Bf5 4. Nbd2 e6 5. e3 c5 6. dxc5
Bxc5 7. Bb5+ Nbd7 8. e4 Nxe4 9. O-O Qb6 10. Nb3 Bxf2+
11. Kh1 Qxb5 12. Nbd2 Bb6 13. b3 Nf2+ 14. Kg1 Nxd1+ 0-1
|May-22-08|| ||alexmagnus: <percy> How did she get to that championship anyway? Something curious must have happened. Reminds me of the case when Kelly Cottrell played in the US Championship (2006) because she was the only woman in one of qualifying tournaments. Still, Cotrell was rated at least 1600ish, Kanakari playes like a 500...|
|May-27-08|| ||nummerzwei: Itīs a team championship with a defined number of womenīs boards. I think sheīs just playing in a weak team or a club which doesnīt care about the womenīs boards or is low on players.
Perhaps, she isnīt even a chessplayer by herself but the daughter/wife of the team captain /club president (or what you may think of) who knows how to move and therefore helps out when there arenīt enough female players that can play.
This is why I wouldnīt take her games (of course dreadful regarding the quality of her play) too seriously.|

Ok, that's an understatement

I would nominate Atharva Bhajne except that he's managed a couple of wins! Nevertheless his games, particularly Atharva Bhajne vs Ayush Jugele, 2008, are truly remarkable.
OK, so he was even younger than Kanakari when he played them. Perhaps we should be looking for the worst <adult> player in the database.
|Jan-22-12|| ||King Death: The player Kelly Cottrell gets my vote of all the players I've seen here so far. Those games are ugly.|
|Jan-22-12|| ||WannaBe: Is Kelly and GM B. Finegold still an item? I've been out of the Chess Celebrity Loop...|
|Jan-22-12|| ||King Death: <WannaBe> Her picture's at the bottom of this page, maybe she took her talents elsewhere. http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...|
