  Caissanist: When Kushnir left the Soviet Union for Israel, reportedly a condition for allowing her to emigrate was that she not participate in the upcoming women's world championship cycle.

  brankat: Happy Birthday Alla!
Aug-14-11  gulliver: Below are two links to tactics by Alla Kushnir . Credit to Chess Today Magazine and to the Susan Polgar Blog. Thanks both to Susan and to Alex Baburin and all the crew of the Chess today magazine for their wonderful job of promoting chess.

Happy birthday to Alla! She represented Israel in the Olympiad in Haifa in 1973 , I believe. I think she played on board 1. And the Israeli women team made history by taking the first place. Luba Kristol was also in the Israeli team. I will never forget this honor to the Jewish people and to the state of Israel that these women gave. Again Best wishes for Alla Kushnir's Birthday!!!
