Jul-31-07  alexapple: How to pronounce her family name?
Aug-09-07  alexapple: any one can help me?
How to pronounce her family name?
Mar-20-08  alexapple: How to pronounce "Dzagnidze"?
Mar-20-08  Tomlinsky: Zag-Nid-Zah should be in the ballpark I believe.

  whiteshark: Nana Dzagnidze @ Dresden 2008:
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: Grandmaster title (men) approved to her at the 79th FIDE Congress which was held 16-26 November 2008 in Dresden, Germany.


(She is from Georgia.)

Oct-02-09  Billy Vaughan: Carlsen's on god-mode and he's the one making the news, but Dzagnidze isn't doing bad either with 4/4 in the women's side.
Oct-04-09  Open Defence: she lost today against Sebag

Jul-02-10  nikolajewitsch: She is having quite a run at the Women's GP in Jermuk with 7.5/8, leading the field by 1.5 points - very impressive. At this point, anything else than a clear win would be a surprise, 3 draws in the last 3 rounds should suffice.
Jul-02-10  Mr Snuffleupagus: Amazing! You're wreaking havoc at the oppositions with your ferocious attack and defense!
Jul-05-10  Mr Snuffleupagus: Congratulations!

A sure-fire winner of Jermuk, 2010...

Premium Chessgames Member
  wordfunph: incredible 9/11! congrats GM Nana for winning Jermuk!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Jermuk 2010, final ranking crosstable:, congratulations!

Feb-04-11  bronkenstein: GZ Nana , almost 2700 performance @ Gibraltar =)
Feb-24-11  paavoh: Very impressive run of performances by Dzagnidze (junior WC, Jermuk, Gibraltar) and now a great start 2/2 at Grand Prix!

A future Women WC, perhaps?

Feb-28-11  paavoh: Perhaps I jinxed her: three losses since my previous post... Sorry!

  Penguincw: Congratz to Dzagnidze, who won the ACP Women's Rapid Cup, with a nice final, black win off of Kosintseva, finishing ahead of Cramling and Lahno on tiebreaks.
Premium Chessgames Member
  wordfunph: Dzagnidze beats Cramling in tiebreak, wins ACP Cup together with the cool US $10,000 first prize.

Jul-27-13  notyetagm: Damn, Nana Dzagnidze won four (!!!!) World Youth Championship titles:

1999: Girls U-12 World Champion

2001: Girls U-16 World Champion

2003: Girls U-18 World Champion

2003: Girls U-20 World Junior Champion

  Penguincw: Happy 27th birthday GM Nana Dzagnidze!
Dec-11-14  fisayo123: Barely any comments here? She's really underrated.
May-17-15  waustad: She's the highest rated player in this year's European Women's Championship. Many of the usual suspects are missing, such as former winners Cmilyte, Cramling, and Kosintseva.
Apr-22-17  CountryGirl: Just got into Nana's games. Am liking what I'm seeing.
