  Caissanist: From a posting by <duchamp64> on the Sofia Polgar board:

< Learned at her appearance in Las Vegas: Sophia's husband is a physician who is about to do his M.D. residency in Canada -- so Sophia will be moving there with him soon. Sophia is a talented and published artist who does cartoons and caricatures.>

Dec-01-05  Chopin: I wonder if Kosashvili has ever played against any of the 3 sisters before in a tournament. It's safe to say that their children will have chess genes.
