  WannaBe: <brankat> While doing a search on Ms. Salome Melia, I came across (stumbled upon) this article:

Now, go about 60% way down, and the picture right below GM N. Short, you may find a very, very, very familiar face!!!!

Compare that picture to this avatar: User: ahmadov

  BishopofBlunder: <WannaBe: Got to get my eyes checked/fixed, when I first saw the name, I thought I was reading a certain illness that you get from bad food.>

Has my wife been cooking for you again?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Gilmoy: <Salome> is a name you could <lose your head over>:

My mental imagery thereof stems from P. Craig Russell's borderline soft-core (yaay!) cover art for his graphic novel adaptation of Strauss's opera. See, comic books <are> educational. (Judging from the eagerness with which the rest of you post links to photos for every young WGM whose bio doesn't already have one, some of you are straddling the border, too :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <Gilmoy> Ah, yes... However, being a male praying mantis, can also cause you to 'lose your head'... =)

Left a message on your forum!!

Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: <WannaBe> Yes, I saw the Ahmadov photo before.

And the original Salome sure could dance.

<Gilmoy> Any photo's of the 1st century A.D. Salome available? :-)

So we can keep on straddling the border :-)

  ahmadov: Happy birthday, Salome!

Apr-14-09  Open Defence: is that real fur ?
Premium Chessgames Member
  ahmadov: <Open Defence: is that real fur ?> I do not think so...
Jul-17-09  Demadone: I know her. Pretty good person, but has little time for friendlies. Justin here from Odnoklassniki.
Sep-18-09  ILoveCrazyhouse: She destroyed me in a simultaneous exhibition in Montreal last night. I had a good position for a while, but one positional error and she crushed me.

Not in the way some of you are thinking.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: She has a good start this year, by winning the 67th Georgian championship:, congratulations!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Placed 2nd (or shared 1st?) yesterday in the Women's section of Moscow Open 2010:, congratulations!

Interview after Moscow Open:

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <Tab> Did you notice/realize that the interview has been shortend?

There were also some words said on the Russian-Georgian 'conflict', visa-issues etc...

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: <whiteshark> I saw that the interview (and the other ones) did not fill the page, but not that it's shortened.

Is it ??

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <Is it ??> Oh no,sorry, it is not. Sorry, I didn't read it carefully enough. Actually I read it on the FIDE page and thought it was longer... inner confusion...

And the passage I meant is also there:

<- There are tensions between Russia and Georgia these years. How does it influence on tournaments participation? <- Georgian women didnít take part in World Championship 2008 in Nalchik. Nowadays there are not big difficulties. But I got a visa to Russia through Swiss Embassy, and flew to Moscow passing Prague.>>

Well what elso could you say when you play in Moscow?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: The winning streak continues. Today she won the women's tournament Cotroceni 2010:

Mar-05-13  Jigsaw42: IM Melia Salome needs help
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <Jigsaw42: IM Melia Salome needs help>

Dear chess friends,

I feel really uncomfortable to ask for that on a chess website, but I have no one else to ask for help except chess community.

In October 2012 I gave birth to my daughter Ketevan. A month later she was diagnosed with pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect and major aorto-pulmonary collaterals. A complex surgery that can save her life should be made in Germany until the end of March.

I'm supported by the All People closest, but Unfortunately That is not Enough since the Sum needed for the surgery is Huge. I am Asking for any kind of help Financial.

I would like to thank you in advance.

You can send money to:

Recipient: Salome Melia

  GrahamClayton: Salome achieved her second GM norm at the 2013 European Individual Championships, scoring 7/9.
Aug-26-13  ketchuplover: Long live Ketevan Melia!!!!!!!!
Jul-09-14  Granny O Doul: Well, there's a letdown. I was briefly excited there was a 2454-rated Irish woman out there I'd never heard of.
