  brankat: Wow! So many names. And husbands :-)

Best wishes to Dr.Bellin for her Birthday!

Dec-10-07  Cibator: <cuendillar:> Can't resist making a belated response to your post of 6 August (I've only recently joined Chessgames).

Let's just be thankful that Ilyin-Zhenevsky, Dus-Chotimirsky and Bonch-Osmolovsky didn't get together on a bit of opening analysis with Znosko-Borovsky. Apart from anything else, the typesetter for the resulting book (in those pre-computer days) would have soon run out of hyphens.

Dec-10-07  mack: The good doctor's name reads like a veritable 'to do' list of British chess players.
Apr-30-08  Billy Vaughan: Here's an interesting way to catalogue your trysts.

  perfidious: As a header, I should be happy to settle for Dr Jana Bellin. To see that alphabet soup at the top of this page is as bad as some of the nomenclature used here, come to opening variations.

  FSR: The late IM William E Martz related that at one of the Olympiads, while Jana Malypetrova Hartston Miles Bellin was still married to Hartston, she was spending her nights with Miles - Hartston's teammate on the Men's Olympiad team. Staid Midwesterner that he was, Martz had a hard time understanding how Hartston could play chess under these circumstances.
Jan-16-14  john barleycorn: <FSR> I conclude that Botterill, Mestel, Speelman, Nunn and Littlewood did not fall under her prey schematic?

  FSR: <john barleycorn> Apparently not.

The threesome participated together in the Olympiads at Haifa, 1976 and Buenos Aires, 1978. I surmise that the cuckoldry took place at the latter. Hartston's result was more than adequate, scoring +3 =6 -0. Actually, it was Miles and Mrs. Hartston whose performance was somewhat lacking: he had +3 =6 =3, and she +4 =6 -2, both markedly worse than their showing in 1976. Admittedly, the subject needs further research, but it suggests that a combinaton of sex and treachery adversely affects one's chess.

Apr-23-16  cunctatorg: I don't deny that all this (more or less, "ugly") stuff is a little bit didactic.
