|Jun-26-09|| ||Octal: Is this the same person who wrote the great puzzle book "Imagination in Chess"?|
|Jun-26-09|| ||hms123: <Octal> No, it's not.|
Imagination in Chess: How to Think Creatively and Avoid Foolish Mistakes - Paata Gaprindashvili
(It may be P Gaprindashvili)
|Jul-15-09|| ||Honza Cervenka: <Current FIDE rating: 2064> Well, there are two Nonas on the FIDE ELO list. One of them is this Nona Gaprindashvili, former woman world champion and grandmaster from Georgia born in 1941 and her current rating is 2349. The other Nona Gaprindashvili is a young girl (b. 1991) from Russia (probably from St. Petersburg as she played in several tournaments there included junior city championships) with current rating (July 2009) 2042 and maximum 2089 in January 2009. See http://ratings.fide.com/seek.phtml?...|
|Jul-15-09|| ||Honza Cervenka: <blackburne: achieve the men's Grandmaster title because win the women world championship. The first woman to achieve the GM title with 3 GM norms is Zsuzsa Polgar in 1991> Well, this is technically true but you should know that conditions for achieving GM title were radically different and I would say much harder before early 1980s when current regulations were introduced. Retrospectively Nona Gaprindashvili would have become a man's GM easily before 1980 if current regulations for GM norms would be applied then and she fulfilled some GM norms in 1980s after becoming a GM too. The same can be said about Maia Chiburdanidze as well.|
|Nov-08-09|| ||Tabanus: News from Condino, Valle del Chiese (Italy): Nona Gaprindashvili, the World Senior Champion 2009! |
|Jan-19-10|| ||Everett: Did she have Bronstein as a trainer at some point?|
|Mar-26-10|| ||thegoodanarchist: <Petrosianic: Nona actually got the GM title in 1978, not 1980....>|
Very interesting post, thanks.

- Nona Gaprindashvili
|May-03-10|| ||wordfunph: Nona Gaprindashvili had a perfume named after her in Russia. A Tbilisi perfume factory sold the perfume in a bottle shaped like a chess Queen.|
she turned 69 today..
|May-03-10|| ||HeMateMe: Nona won Lone Pine, '77. Yaz must have been a young felllow; he finished almost dead last.|
|Aug-15-10|| ||Uncanny: Still in contention at the age of 70.
|Aug-19-10|| ||Tabanus: Shared winner of György Marx Memorial (women) (Hungary) 5-16 August 2010: |
|Aug-19-10|| ||HeMateMe: This is the same Nona (best woman player during Bob's hey day) that Fischer claimed he could "give Knight odds to". Well, I'd bet on the Georgian legend, on that one.|
|Dec-28-10|| ||waustad: Chess Metrics had her over 2600 in '88. That's a while ago. BTW, there are 2 Nona Gaprindashvili's in the FIDE rating list. The 2042 rated player is the Russian one. The Georgian Nona is rated 2363.|
|Mar-12-11|| ||kevins55555: The World Champs Cycle goes from this:Nona Gaprindashvili then Maia Chiburdanidze then Xie Jun then Zsuzsa Polgar.|
|Apr-08-11|| ||BLarsen1967: a promising start for the One & Only Nona in the Euro Senior Champ.,with 2.5 points out of 3. But the real test'll be tomorrow where she's up against GM Gennadij Timoscenko - GO Nona !
|May-03-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Happy 71st Birthday, Women's World Champion Gaprindashvili!|
|May-03-12|| ||parisattack: <HeMateMe: This is the same Nona (best woman player during Bob's hey day) that Fischer claimed he could "give Knight odds to". Well, I'd bet on the Georgian legend, on that one.>|
Happy B-Day, Nona. Love your games. Can you drop by sometime, autograph the Russian biography I have of you, show me a few pointers on the Robatsch?
|May-03-12|| ||Benzol: "Fischer is Fischer, but a Knight is a Knight" - Tal|
|Aug-02-12|| ||kramputz: Must be the wrong FIDE rating.|
|Aug-02-12|| ||kramputz: This is her FIDE rating
|Aug-20-12|| ||waustad: She's playing in the European Senior Champs now. The world senior champs take men over 60 or women over 50. Nona is over the age limit for both and is the highest rated senior woman now, but Pia Cramling may be eligible next year.|
|Aug-22-12|| ||waustad: Since Tatyana Fomina is playing, women can play in their 50s.|
|Apr-21-13|| ||waustad: Congratulations on induction to the chess HOF: http://usa.chessdom.com/us-world-ch...|
|Nov-15-13|| ||waustad: She is not having a good tournament in the World Senior Championships in Croatia. With a 1969 performance rating she'll be shedding some more elo. Of course at 72 she's a lot older than most of her competition. With Maia C. and Pia Cramling both officially seniors now (though neither is present this year) it will keep getting harder for her to win events like his.|
