  Benzol: Another Lady Grandmaster.
Oct-22-05  lopium: lol. Seems easy to be a GM nowadays. A maximum rating of 2344 made her GM with I guess some other stuff, like to win some tournament.
Jan-09-06  EmperorAtahualpa: She's quite a pretty lady too!

Jan-09-06  Father Karras: <EmperorAtahualpa> Thou shalt not commit adultery. I suspect you have done this in your mind, as you seem overly interested in these temptations of women.
Jan-09-06  hintza: How will he sleep at night? :S
Jan-10-06  Father Karras: <hintza> Presently - very easily, without doubt. He will sleep less easily if he knew the fate that follows such souls.

  PhilFeeley: <Father Karras: <EmperorAtahualpa> Thou shalt not commit adultery. I suspect you have done this in your mind, as you seem overly interested in these temptations of women.>

I hope you were speaking facetiously, as such monitoring of others' comments is so lame. One can appreciate the beauty of another person without it leading to adultery.

Nov-08-13  waustad: Though the Hungarians lost on the top two boards today in the ETCC, the bottom 2 boards came through to garner a tie with Belarus. Anita Gara's endgame win clinched the deal.
May-25-14  waustad: While looking for more information about Zalakaros Chess Festival I ran across this site that has lots of pictures of the Gara sisters and other Hungarian chess people.

May-25-14  Refused:

The club she plays for in Germany has her an Anita Gara section on their homepage.

May-25-14  waustad: Thanks for the info. German is also a lot more readable for me than Magyar. I was disappointed that Ticia didn't play any games in the FBL this last year. Sadly, both sisters seem to be shedding a fair amount of elo at the Zalakaros Chess Festival with both starting with 0.5/3. They quickly got to boards below the ones equipped with DGT boards.

  perfidious: <waustad: German is also a lot more readable for me than Magyar....>

While I am fluent in neither language, that is true for me as well. Magyar looks a handful, whereas I can make some sense of German most of the time.

May-26-14  Refused: Waustad the link I gave was not to a Womens' team btw. She plays/played in the regular Team of Gro▀hansdorf on board 1.

That team managed to relegate this eason from the Landesliga Hamburg (4th highest class). Which was utterly surprising.

Gara played in 7 rounds and scored 5.5 points there. She drew against FM Holger Hebbinghaus and lost to IM Jonathan Calstedt - the strongest player in this class.

May-26-14  Refused: *Carlstedt I meant. stupid typo.
Jun-08-14  waustad: I was wondering about the IM title with the highest rating posted here, but her highest listed on the FIDE card is 2405. With norms that would qualify.
Sep-30-14  waustad: After her third round win today against GM Evgeny Romanov she is leading the Oslo Open with 2.5/3.

Nov-27-14  waustad: <HHM>That is Almira Skripchenko. This is Anita Gara:
Jan-31-16  waustad: Her play in Gibraltar has been up and down. When she's been paired down, she's won. She's also been paired with Rapport, Naiditsch and Short and lost all of those games. Tomorrow she's taking a 1/2 point bye.
Jan-23-18  ketchuplover: Drawn goes Aronian!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
