  Appaz: Is she in any way related to the great WWII general Georgy Zhukov http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhukov?
Mar-15-06  PinkPanther: No, Zhukov is a pretty common Russian (Soviet) surname.

  Karpova: <Open Defence: aahh so Grischuk is taken... well I am taken too ;-p> cause and effect?
Jul-07-07  Open Defence: <Karpova> probably... but then who knows what fate has in store ;-p

  Karpova: <Open Defence>
Let's hope that Zhukova won't ever read this site or else she'll be aware of the danger :-)
Jul-07-07  Open Defence: aahh but she would be in zugzwang....

Mar-17-10  kwi: She finally gets her rating above 2500 (2500.7 to be exact). Congrats to our new GM!
