|Apr-23-12|| ||Wild Bill: This is also the traditional date to celebrate Shakespeare's birthday, although all we really know is that he was baptized on April 26, 1564.|
Send him a card!
|May-31-12|| ||waustad: Good start for the Women's Rapid Championship, with 3/3 including wins over Nona G and Zhao Xue.|
|Jul-17-12|| ||waustad: She had an excellent result in the Turkish league with 6.5/7.
|Aug-27-12|| ||waustad: It looks like the youth tournament in Gibraltar may be why there was no Cramling Bellon in the European Junior champs or Cramling playing for Sweden in the Olympiad. http://www.chess.co.uk/twic/malcolm... sounds more convenient for somebody living about 100 km away and could turn into a tradition.|
|Aug-29-12|| ||waustad: Ana is the covergirl: http://www.gibraltarchesscongress.c...|
|Aug-29-12|| ||HeMateMe: Cute as all heck--makes you want your daughter to play chess, instad of being a mall rat.|
|Sep-12-12|| ||waustad: I wanted to comment on her game against Alexei Alexandrov in the 1996 olympiad, but it doesn't seem to be in here. Also, they transliterate his name differently on olimpbase than they do here, where he is Alexey Aleksandrov. There is a lot of wild tactics going on. I guess I'll submit it. Maybe they'll add it though sometimes they don't.|
|Oct-14-12|| ||waustad: Today she won a very drawish endgame against Tsifanskaya. Moro was playing the same position and got a draw, though he was playing Nikita Vitiugov, a much tougher opponent.|
|Oct-30-12|| ||waustad: She's listed as one of those seeded into the next WWCC Tourney. Wouldn't it be great if she finally won at 49. She could never get past Maya ages ago but got to the semi's last time around. Go Pia!|
|Dec-13-12|| ||waustad: She'll be playing in the World Mindgames in Beijing: http://www.fide.com/component/conte...|
|Dec-15-12|| ||waustad: How does one deal with time zones when going from Spain to Tashkent to Spain to Beijing? There wasn't much time in between and she's pushing 50 hard. Did mom keep strange hours for a while back home to not mess things up too much?|
|Dec-15-12|| ||waustad: Wrong location. She was at the WWCC which wasn't at Tashkent. It was one time zone East of there.|
|Dec-30-12|| ||waustad: She's having a decent tournament so far at Rilton Cup 2012/2013 at +2 after 4 rounds. Today she drew with the tournament's highest rated player GM Ilya Smirin playing white in a KID.
|Jan-01-13|| ||waustad: After a win today against Elena Zaiatz she's up to +3. That means her game will be shown live tomorrow. She was on 8th board today but they only showed 7.|
|Jan-02-13|| ||waustad: Today she won in 23 moves as white in a Nimzo Indian against Linus Johansson,
so she is tied for the lead at 5/6 with 3 rounds to go.|
|Jan-03-13|| ||waustad: She's down an outside passer in a double rooks endgame. it doesn't look good at the moment. http://live.schack.se/StSF/Rilton/t...|
|Jan-03-13|| ||waustad: After that loss she's tied for 6th and will play Erwin L'ami in the penultimate round. http://chess-results.com/tnr88104.a...|
|Jan-03-13|| ||waustad: It is a full family affair I see. Juan Bellon is at 3.5/7 so far and Anna Cramling-Bellon is 3/6 with a 1642 performance rating in the Open section. http://chess-results.com/tnr88106.a...|
|Jan-04-13|| ||waustad: After losing to Erwin L'ami she gets his wife in the final round. Her performance rating is almost identical to her elo, so the result is about as one might expect.|
|Jan-22-13|| ||waustad: She lost to Paolo Pinho in the first round at Gibtel according to the results, but won her game according to 2700 chess: http://www.2700chess.com/glass_wome...
After the Shirov/Navara snafu, who can tell what really happened?|
|Apr-22-13|| ||waustad: Your final day as a quadragenerian. Happy birthday tomorrow!|
|Apr-22-13|| ||TheTamale: Wow, Pia, you and I are very close in age. I've got you beat by a couple of weeks. Happy birthday this Tues... hope they make you POTD.|
|Apr-23-13|| ||waustad: Congratulations on being the only active 50 year old on the list here: http://www.2700chess.com/women|
Note that the second oldest is 36. Hopefully you are embracing the event and having a great party.
|Apr-23-13|| ||waustad: It looks like she isn't wasting any time playing as a senior, 2700chess has her listed as playing here: http://scandinavian-chess-tournamen...|
|May-05-13|| ||waustad: She beat Nicolas Croad (2282) from New-Zealand in the 4NCL yesterday. It looks like her husband is the one playing today. He beat Mark Josse. I wonder if Ana will be starting playing in the Junior section in a year or two. Sadly the 4NCL site is much harder to get information from than chess-results.com where one can find out who played for whom with what results quickly.|
