|Nov-19-15|| ||SimplicityRichard: It appears that the rating on the profile page may be currently erroneous; I read elsewhere that Alexandra's rating is 2351 Elo. It would be great if the relevant facts were updated on this site. #|
|Nov-19-15|| ||sonia91: <SimplicityRichard> Are you kidding?! The simplest way to check the rating is clicking on the <FIDE page> of the player|
|Jul-16-16|| ||The Kings Domain: Attractive gal, and a fine player too. There should be more like her.|
|Jul-16-16|| ||HeMateMe: Gorgeous. Reminds me of a young Lauren Bacall:
It's in the eyes.
|Aug-27-16|| ||cro777: WFM Alexandra Botez: "THREE more days until I head off to Baku to represent Canada at the World Chess Olympiad!"|
|Sep-01-16|| ||notyetagm: <HeMateMe: Gorgeous. Reminds me of a young Lauren Bacall: >|
I don't see what is so pretty about her.
I think Tania Sachdev and Ju Wenjun are much prettier. And higher-rated. :-)
|Sep-06-16|| ||notyetagm: A beautiful pic of <Ju Wenjun> from the Olympiad:|
|Sep-07-16|| ||epistle: Any full body shot of Botez? Let's see if she has the curves to match her pretty face.|
|Sep-07-16|| ||HeMateMe: "Recently, she participated in the "Second Chess Festival UNAM", after winning a scholarship of $40,000 in the Texas Tech University."|
The pipeline of chess talent to Texas colleges goes on and on. I'm not sure how much $40 large gets you these days, maybe pays for two years?
Gotez--is that Dutch?
|Sep-07-16|| ||kardopov: It will just bother your mind if you will be given the chance to take a look at her curves.|
|Sep-07-16|| ||HeMateMe: She's a bit thin, but people who model often look like that. Very pretty girl.|

Alexandra Botez grew up in a close-knit Romanian community in Vancouver, Canada and plays for the Canadian Women's chess team. Her parents came from Bucharest, Romania. She was born in Dallas, and the family moved to Vancouver, B.C., when she was 4. Botez is quite popular last name mostly concentrated in Romania which signifies that it is originated from Romania.
Alexandra is Stanford's first female Chess Club president. After considering focusing on Chess in college, she came to Stanford to study International Relations:
"I felt like I would grow a lot more as a person if I came to Stanford," she said.
She's proving the thesis: "A beautiful woman is a person, not a body. Once you have that straight, then the body will fall into line with appropriate clothing and appropriate makeup and appropriate hair and everything else."
|Sep-07-16|| ||HeMateMe: Good photo above, IMO. She's not too skinny at all, just perfect.|
|Sep-07-16|| ||OhioChessFan: I'm with <notyet> and don't find her all that attractive.|
|Sep-07-16|| ||kenkur: Always thought that names ending in -ez were Spanish but I guess I was wrong. Then again Romanian, like Spanish is a Latin (not like the country's Slavic neighbours) culture.|
|Sep-07-16|| ||cro777: <Recently, she participated in the "Second Chess Festival UNAM">|
Gran Fiesta UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México) in Mexico City is one of the largest chess festivals in the world, with thousands of chess fans, many tournaments and activities.
The main attraction of the second edition held in 2012 was a rapid and blindfold knockout tournament http://es.chessbase.com/portals/0/f.... Magnus Carlsen beat Judit Polgar in the final.
The main events also included the Magistral Grandes Maestras Female tournament with 18 titled players from three continents
For the qualification heats (preliminaries) the participants were divided in three groups of six players each. Alexandra Botez was in the third group.
Alexandra Botez (Canada) against Nino Maisuradze (France)
As part of the Second Chess Festival UNAM was inaugurated the exhibition 'Monumental Horses',
hence the picture 'Alexandra Botez with a monumental horse' (reposted bellow). The UNAM rector reported that horses, a symbol of strength and beauty, decorated by artists and artisans, symbolize the universality of the game-science. The horses measure 2.5 meters in height.

|Sep-07-16|| ||cro777: If the path be beautiful, let us not ask where it leads.|
In the Chinese tradition both the external and inner dimensions determine the beauty of a woman.
The Chinese Women’s chess team:
Ju Wenjun, Yifan Hou, Zhao Xue and Tan Zhongyi
Combining external and inner dimensions – the Latvian Minister of Finance WGM Dana Reizniece-Ozola, the top board of the Latvian Women's chess team:
|Sep-07-16|| ||kardopov: Botez could be a strong contender in any beauty pageant, or a showbiz star, or a supermodel, but never a chess champion nor a chess queen as long as yifan hou is around.|
|Sep-08-16|| ||Mr. V: <Cro777> Do you know if her last name has any meaning in Romanian? Thanks.|
|Sep-08-16|| ||cro777: Botez in Romanian means baptism.
|Sep-08-16|| ||gokusano: She is Botez V!|
|Sep-08-16|| ||gokusano: This must be her sister https://goo.gl/images/GUIObd|
|Sep-09-16|| ||epistle: It is still a mystery, though, if Botez has an onion rear bumper, i.e., an ass which could make you cry.|
|Oct-03-16|| ||cro777: Katherine Eisenbrand: "Her femininity shines through her style." |
