Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-10-03  Ezely Nakhdov: What, no picture? Hmmm, she must have a lot of personality then.

Just kidding, Ashley.

Aug-06-05  Mameluk: Kovalevskaya has King on g1 in the middlegame against Lomeneishvili. If she had white, I wouldn´t mind it...
Mar-16-06  BIDMONFA: Ekaterina Kovalevskaya


Aug-31-07  Manuel Garcia: The best result in the Russian female chess team against China: +1 (5.5/10). She won a couple of nice endings, showing very fine technique.
Apr-17-15  waustad: Perhaps today's POTD will be playing tomorrow in the Frauenbundesliga for OSG Baden Baden. Happy birthday!

Apr-17-15  MagnusVerMagnus: My favorite player!!!!
Apr-11-16  waustad: She was the top scorer for OSG Baden Baden in the German Frauenbundesliga in the recently completed season. Her team won, yet again, but they were tied in match points, so it came down to a better total on board points.
