  wordfunph: beooootifulllll Alexandra Botez!

taken from..

Feb-01-12  King Death: Damn, what'll she be like when she grows up?

  Shams: This very sweet young lady is a fixture in Seattle chess, for a few months more at least. No surprise she has been on the cover of "Northwest Chess".

She won a full ride to Texas Tech by winning a national girls open tournament this past year! I couldn't believe it when I heard it. That's worth far more than First Prize at the U.S. Championships.

I played her once last year in a tournament game. She played the MacCutcheon variation of the French defense and I played the 6.Bc1!? line that I am fond of right now. After 22 moves she blundered catastrophically in a more or less equal position.

Haven't spoken too much with her father but he also seems to be her trainer. Clearly he has done a great job.

Nov-18-12  Cemoblanca: Smart & Beautiful! What a nice combination! :)
Nov-18-12  Cemoblanca: & a profile pic would be very nice! ;)

She certainly deserves it! :)

Nov-02-13  John Abraham: this would make nice profile pic
or maybe this one

  cro777: Is she world's prettiest chess player? Social media thinks so.

A perfect concoction of beauty and intelligence.

  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.

  HeMateMe: Gorgeous. Reminds me of a young Lauren Bacall:


It's in the eyes.
