|Oct-02-13|| ||HeMateMe: Why isn't this girl married? She's a babezilla, interesting career, seems like a nice person.|
|Oct-02-13|| ||TheFocus: <HeMateMe> < Why isn't this girl married?>|
Don't be scared. Just ask her. How could she turn YOU down?
|Oct-02-13|| ||HeMateMe: You're right, Focus. The direct approach is always the best.|
|Oct-02-13|| ||TheFocus: Wear clean underwear. You never know when she will get lucky!|
|Oct-02-13|| ||perfidious: Quite true.|
|Oct-02-13|| ||HeMateMe: the clean underwear part is true as well. I've been on both sides of that situation, and it is good to be prepared. |
Seriously, she's really cute, and smart--no marriage proposals? Could she be gay, or somehow weird? Kosteniuk knew the score, and married some rich, older dude. Why not this gal?
Maybe Stefanova has some aversion to long term relationships?
|Apr-19-14|| ||Mr. President: С днём рождения (Happy Birthday) Antoaneta Stefanova!|
|Apr-19-14|| ||perfidious: <HMM: Maybe Stefanova has some aversion to long term relationships?>|
It is possible, with good reason--take it from someone who has spent time on the road while the family remained at home. It was part of making a living, but that understanding did not make matters any easier.
|Apr-20-14|| ||TheFocus: I would ask her out, but then comes marriage. Children. She choose the kids over chess. That would never do.|
<Tears up paper with her phone number on it and walks away from the phone.>
Besides, she's too young for me.
|Apr-20-14|| ||TheFocus: <HeMateMe> Time for you to step up to the plate. I'd give you her number, but I tore it up.|
|Jul-04-14|| ||waustad: The European Women's Championship begins Sunday in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Here are links to the official site: http://www.eiwcc2014.eu/ and the chess-results page: http://chess-results.com/tnr136442....|
|Jul-06-14|| ||Fluffy: I'm not seeing the European Women's Championship listed under new games on the Chessgames home page. Am I looking right at it and not seeing it? Seems like it's a big enough competition to warrant its own entry.|
|Jul-07-14|| ||Fluffy: Once they found out who they were dealing with, they were putty in my hands :)|
|Aug-13-14|| ||HeMateMe: Great photo of this beauty, 2004:
|Apr-19-15|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday to GM Antoaneta Stefanova!|

|Apr-19-15|| ||theodor: you're the best! all the best from sofia.|
|May-27-15|| ||sonia91: <was awarded the Grandmaster title in June 2003>|
Her FIDE rating card says she earned the title of GM in 2002: http://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?...
|May-31-15|| ||HeMateMe: A strong resemblance to French actress Jeanne Moreau?|
|Dec-21-15|| ||iking: nice game last night ....|
|Dec-21-15|| ||epistle: She has Bette Davis's eyes.|
|Apr-19-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, Antoaneta Stefanova.|
|Apr-19-16|| ||Fluffy: I hope you have a great birthday, Antoaneta!|
|Aug-29-16|| ||diagonal: Women's World Chess Champion 2004-2006, number 2 ranked woman in January, April, July 2003 behind Judit Polgar (then quarterly published ELO lists). In 1992 Stafanova played at the age of 13 in her first Chess Olympiad in Manila, The Philippines. |

|Aug-29-16|| ||diagonal: Handshake GM Stefanova and GM Carlsen (scroll down):
Highlight for Stefanova, an entry in an elite closed round robin tournament, at Drammen, Norway (SmartFish Masters), year-end 2004/2005:
SmartFish Chess Masters (2004)
She scored 3/9, sharing places with young Carlsen. Peter Heine Nielsen and Alexei Shirov (top-seeded and top ten player) won at 6/9.
Carlsen beat Shirov, Shirov beat Korchnoi, Korchnoi beat Carlsen.
An international invitation tournament not only based on ELO and category average with almost always the same top ten players, but also on the Narrative: ages, gender, different styles (don't mention Khalifman), and promising players from the hosting nation. Chess careers can again have a narrative and all sports need this.
