  Benzol: Btw anybody know what Susan Lalic's maiden name was before she married Bogden?
Dec-07-04  weary willy: Maiden name = Walker. Name before marrying Bogdan = Arkell (married Keith Arkell). Susan Walker = Susan Arkell = Susan Lalic

  Benzol: Susan Kathryn Lalic
Born 28th October 1965
Awarded WIM title in 1985

A big thankyou to <ray keene> and <weary willy> for helping out with the information regarding her maiden name before she married both Keith Arkell and Bogdan Lalic.

Perhaps <> should merge the three files into one as they did in the case of Jana Malypetrova Hartston Miles Bellin.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: Correction, that should be two files not three.

LALIC, Susan

  Benzol: <BIDMONFA> Why don't you merge this player's file with that of Susan Arkell ?
Oct-28-06  franksp: Suggestion.

Introduce aliases or akas. A player could be known by more than one name e.g. Susan Arkell and Susan Lalic. This would be useful not only to cover searches for female players who have changed their name by marriage but also for players whose name is spelt differently by different people. I once was puzzled when the name, Tchigorin, was missing from the database. Now I know CG uses the name Chigorin. But why not allow Chigorin/Tchigorin to be found using either name?

It might also be interesting to see a list of aliases on the players page.

  whiteshark: <Benzol> Do you know this list: ?

Maybe it's not up-to-date (Bobby Fischer, Arkell/Lalic..), bu a first step... :D

Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <whiteshark> No I didn't. Thanks for the link.

  MissScarlett: Questionnaire with Susan (and Bogdan) Lalic, <Kingpin>, No.24, Spring 1995, p.5:

<What do you consider to be your most important contribution to opening theory?

SL: If I am honest, absolutely nothing.


What was your most embarrassing moment at the chess board?

SL: I offered my opponent a draw and then tried to withdraw the offer 10 minutes later before he had answered. All this with an International Selector looking on.>
