Jan-09-08  Mameluk: Some might think a quick look at the lip balm may be enough?!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gejewe: These Latvians have a problem that is typical for chessplayers. When they perform better than their rating indicates, they think it is normal. When someone else makes a good performance it must be cheating ... One piece of advice for Mrs.Rudolf. A few years ago, all three Latvians had a lower rating than me. Now they outrate me, they improved so they must have cheated: I am willing to witness that. They "suddenly" started to win prizes as well ! So Anna, attack them first next time !

To the FIDE Ethics Commission

15th January 2008, Budapest

On behalf of the Hungarian Chess Federation I strongly protest against the unethical behavior of chessplayers Oleg Krivonosov, Vladimir Lazarev and Ilmars Starostits at the Vandoeuvre Open. Their unfair attacks against Ms Anna Rudolf reveal their preconception and prejudice against a female chessplayer and violate the FIDE Code of Ethics. Ms Anna Rudolf’s opponent even refused to shake hands with her before starting the game in the last round.

Throughout the tournament they deprived Ms Rudolf of being able to concentrate on the games by constantly accusing her of cheating. The ’gentlemen’ mentioned above did not provide any evidence of their claims. However, they showed extensive knowledge of cheating methods. (Source: Ugly story at Vandoeuvre Open,

I declare that Ms Anna Rudolf has been playing chess for 15 years and there has never been even a subtle sign of her being unfair or using analysing programs while playing games at chess tournaments.

We believe that chess games should be played on the board according to FIDE rules avoiding threats and psychological pressure on the opponent.

As a consequence of the unacceptable behaviour of the mentioned chess players, we firmly appeal to the FIDE Ethics Commission to examine the case in order to declare the behaviour of the mentioned players unethical and provide peaceful atmosphere for Ms Anna Rudolf at Capella-La-Grande in February 2008.

  maxi: Has her computer been affected by all this scandal?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Wild Bill: Lip balm?

Why not accuse her of cheating by osmosis? Simply channeling Fritz? Witchcraft?

These accusations, like others we've had to endure in the recent past, belong in the toilet.

<Hot Logic> thou art well-named....

  whiteshark: "Now an interesting question arises. If Short and Cheparinov replay the game, will Anna Rudolf case change? May be not over the refusal of handshake, but the story there was much deeper and a precedent that should be examined carefully. The Hungarian Chess Federation has sent an official letter to FIDE. <Viktor Novotny from Novoborsky has just informed us that Anna starts playing in the Czech republic at Mariensbad Open. She played for her club last week, and her coach Ben Purton informed Chessdom she drew successfully another grandmaster - GM Conquest.> "

Feb-07-08  slomarko: i don't know if this was posted here already but here is an interview with her:

seems that she's trying to use exactly the same defense as Kramnik tried in Elista: <I usually went away from the board when it wasn't my turn to move: I like to go out to the fresh air and also to wash my face. Moreover, I played most of my games on the stage, broadcasted, so I didn't have to sit at the board to see my position.>

  GrahamClayton: Has Anna Rudolf faced accusations of cheating in any of her recent tournaments?

Have her 3 accusers made any subsuquent claims of cheating by other players since the Rudolf incident?

  cro777: Anna Rudolf following World Championship match even on her birthday.

Happy Birthday!

Nov-12-14  Rookiepawn: Perfect solution: naked chessplayers! Bet that would make chess popularity skyrocket.

  OhioChessFan: No doubt <John A> I have found the older I get the more I find redheads innately attractive.
Mar-13-16  MindBoggle: As far as I know, one of the requirements to become an IM (apart from the norms) is to achieve an elo of at least 2400. According to wiki, Anna's peak rating is 2393. If that is true, then how did she become an IM?
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <MindBoggle> One can automatically achieve IM for a specific performance bypassing the regular 3-Norm requirement. Minimum ELO is not required
Mar-13-16  sonia91: <MindBoggle> A <live> rating of 2400+ is enough, no need to be published; same thing for all other titles.

I checked now her IM title application at her FIDE pge: she had a live rating of 2401 after round 2 of a tournament she played in 2010.

Jan-22-17  Conrad93: This is the cutest chess player I've ever seen. Almost makes me want to be a GM.
Jan-22-17  Mr. V: Her interviews with players are interesting and fun. Chess 24 is lucky to have so many great personalities working for them.
Sep-29-17  ketchuplover: she appears to be absent from her game today. hope all is well.
