Apr-24-06  notsodeepthought: Polihroniade? Does she have a geometric figure?

  tud: She was good, actually she won several silver medals for Romania (at olympics) sometimes kicking the butt of Soviet Union players. Mostly her work for national chess movements made her famous. There was one time before 1989 when the soviet team had to go in playoffs with Romania for the olympic gold and this was , like, unbelievable.

She slapped an organizer, like a feisty old bird - and apparently other women wanted to slap him as well: Pasarelu Dan
