Wikipedia has a nice picture of her:

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afbeel...

(: BB :)

P.S. I'm no authority on this, but isn't everything at Wikipedia public domain?

Oct-13-04  patzer2: I saw WGM and IM Lanchava's interview and photoshoot at Chessgames.com and she is an attractive young woman with an impressive resume of Chess accomplishments.

I understand she is a happily married wife and moter, while still finding the time to improve her chess by obtaining the WGM titles and an IM norm. Very impressive and commendable!

In any event, I wish Tea and her family all the best in both her Chess career and private life as a good wife and mother. Hope the photo shoot and publicity is good for her career and Chess in general.

Aug-25-05  EmperorAtahualpa: I understand my fellow countryman Harold Bosboom very well for marrying this gem. Atractive AND intelligent women like Tea Lanchava are just terribly rare in the Netherlands!
Aug-25-05  EmperorAtahualpa: By the way, it's kind of disappointing there are only 96 of her games in this database.....

Well thank you for this comment...

Voor vrouwen moeje hier naar Twente: mooi, soms intelligent (maar nie echt nodig) en ze drinken bier! (grolsch fabrieken weetjewel ;)

Mar-29-06  Whitehat1963: I've sworn off coffee, chocolate, and water for life. I'll content myself with Tea Bosboom-Lanchava instead.

  acirce: <REST AND MOVEMENT (Peter Ingestad)

During those long, pensive august eventides of yore the peasants of Upland gathered in their gardens and on their verandas for teatime, quiet, happy and comfortly seated they spent their pleasant time stirring their cups.

If a tea cup on a saucer is stirred with sufficient skill and intensity, it begins to rotate itself; the spin to reach being bu a matter of knack and training. With an ever improved ability applied it may increase indefinitely. When the spin is sufficient, radioactive decay is generated, rapidly attaining injurious levels.

Today, the art of drinking tea is all but forgotten, this fact possibly partly explaining the improvement of general health having taken place during the last decades.

But still in the fifties textiles were spun and weft unsing an outmnoded technology inducing radioactivity to the cloth; the more it vibrated, the higher quality, was the cvommon judgment.

Fashion develops in perceptible stillness.- We return to the present - having faith in nothing partcular, awaiting the course of time, seeking solace in the marke's cityscape evolving around a a minor set of whirling compass directions.>

Rare no matter where you go, I'm afraid. Usually you get one or the other but not both. :-)

May-29-07  Vash854: Sometimes you get neither... :(

Hahahahaha

Sep-15-10  Whitehat1963: Let's make this the home of the Chessgames.com Tea Party Express!

Today's topic: Does Christine O'Donnell's primary win signal the fracturing of the Republican Party?

Discuss!

"Crush, Tear/Twist, Curl"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crush,...

These styles of manufacture have the advantage that the finished product is well suited for tea bags, as it gives a quick and coloury brew.
