|May-11-09|| ||Wild Bill: Get well soon, Anna.|
|Sep-15-09|| ||HeMateMe: Anna must have duel USA/Russia citizenship? She has played for the USA women's Olympiad, and is playing here for Russia in team competition.|
|Oct-11-09|| ||Caissanist: Since she wasn't born in Russia, I wouldn't think that she was ever a Russian citizen. There don't seem to be any rules against representing a different country, so long as there are no objections from the federation you normally represent.|
|Oct-13-09|| ||Wild Bill: 8 1/2 out of nine!!
|Oct-13-09|| ||Phoenix: Absolutely an outstanding score.|
|Oct-13-09|| ||Travis Bickle: Congratulations Anna Z!! 8.5/9 What an oustanding score!!! I used to play blitz with you on the old WCN. Do you remember? ; P|
|Oct-14-09|| ||Open Defence: <Travis> I never thought you were the Blitz and Tell type ;-p|
|Oct-14-09|| ||Travis Bickle: OD Anna was very friendly and used to chat with me for a few moments when i said hello. She was very personable! ; P|
|Oct-14-09|| ||laskersteinitz: OD, very clever word play there, hehehe!|
|Oct-15-09|| ||Winter: Anna the Great!|
|Jun-23-10|| ||GrahamClayton: Prior to the start of the 2009 US Women's Championship, Anna gave a 5 board simultaneous blindfold exhibition, finishing with a +5, =0, -0 score. This is believed to be the record for the most number of games played simultaneously blindfold by a female chess player in a scheduled and regulated exhibition. A report and video can be found at:|
|Jul-18-10|| ||Remizatorul: Nice pics gallery here ...
|Jul-20-10|| ||Tabanus: Placed 2nd in the US Women's Championship 9-20 July 2010:|
|Aug-08-10|| ||HeMateMe: Anna Z finishes 26th at Main Rapid, highest among women (World champion A. Kosteniuk finishd 49th) with 8 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw. She finished around the middle of the field, not too bad.|
|Nov-13-10|| ||HeMateMe: anna is seeded 18th at the ladies world championship. GL Anna! No Irina Krush, unfortunately. C. Baginskaite is in the tournament for the USA; she is seeded No. 49.|
|Apr-28-11|| ||SetNoEscapeOn: Congrats to Anna on winning her fourth US women's championship. They really made her work for it this time.|

She started way off form, I still thought if she made it to the semi finals that she would be the favorite and she didn't disappoint. In some ways this was her finest U.S. championship because she showed the dogged determination to press ahead when it looked all but over.
Sorry for Irina she I'm sure is devastated for losing a won game.
And Tatyana Abramov should be overjoyed for going the distance.
|Jul-17-11|| ||Sho: Happy birthday Anna,
I teach middle school and try to inspire kids towards chess. I think the girls can find some in you. Thanks.
|Jul-17-11|| ||ketchuplover: Armageddon!!!!!!!!!!!!|
|Jul-17-11|| ||jakaiden: Happy Birthday to the most beautiful US Champion ever!|
|Jul-17-11|| ||HeMateMe: She is playing in that top flight women's tournament in China, alongside the mens team championships (with a nod to Judit Polgar, of course).|
|Nov-24-11|| ||PhilFeeley: Why don't they have the Swinkels-Zatonskih game here?|

|Jul-17-12|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday Anna!|
|Feb-10-13|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: Daniel did really well for a...large man.|
|May-04-13|| ||waustad: Her husband is from Latvia but plays for Germany. She's from Ukraine but plays for the USA and plays in the championships often. She also plays for Baden Baden in the Frauenbundesliga and may be the only German resident to play for them this year. The German language WIKI http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Z... claims that she moved to Long Island in 2005. I wonder how many nationalities their daughter claims and what languages are spoken at home. Her parents would have Russian and German in common and probably English.|
