|Jan-14-09|| ||spasskey69: Is there any more personal information available? Who is her trainer?|
|Mar-13-09|| ||Wild Bill: Lilit Mkrtchian is currently leading the European Women's Championship in St. Petersburg.|
It's too bad she isn't more of a devotee of a certain subset of the French. It would remind us how to get a close approximation to the pronounciation of her name.
Hint: A Rudolf vs L Mkrtchian, 2008
|Mar-14-09|| ||MMan: "Lilit Mkrtchian is currently leading the European Women's Championship in St. Petersburg."|
I hope the prize money is big enough that she can buy some vowels.
|Mar-19-09|| ||khursh: Congratulations to Lilit Mkrtchian on winning X European Women's Championship in St. Petersburg !!! /shared with Tatiana Kosintseva /|
Is there any tiebreak system [and which] to decide the winner?
|Mar-19-09|| ||khursh: A spectacular win in last round.

<IM Lilit Mkrtchian of Armenia and IM Tatiana Kosintseva of Russia will decide the new European Women Chess Champion after a rapid tiebreak match that should follow later tonight or tomorrow. IM Ekaterina Kovalevskaya entered the last round as sole leader, but then played too passively with Black pieces and Kosintseva knew how to punish this complacency. Lilit Mkrtchian bravely attacked WGM Marina Romanko's Naidorf Sicilian with the sharpest Poisoned Pawn variation. Black King remained stuck in the center and then Romanko blundered a tactical shot while trying to complete the queenside development.>
|Mar-19-09|| ||khursh: Thanks <percyblakeney>|
|Mar-20-09|| ||wanabe2000: http://chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp...|
|Mar-20-09|| ||hovik2003: Lilit, you are fantastic, I love you!!|
|Mar-27-09|| ||Udit Narayan: wow fantastic photos there!!!|
|Mar-31-09|| ||spasskey69: i asked an Armenia lady I know how to pronouice her name: it is MMM-Kart-chian|
|Jun-18-09|| ||OhioChessFan: I think Alex Trebeck would stroke out if you tried to buy a vowel on Jeopardy. <khursh> that game reminds me of this one:
Lahno vs A Gasik, 2001
where Black played Qa5 and later saw the Queen trapped.|
|Sep-15-09|| ||jon01: Mkrtchian seems to be one of the best women players in the world.|
|Mar-13-10|| ||weisyschwarz: Come on Lilit!! You can rebound! I have confidence in you! You can get a string of wins!!|
|Feb-26-11|| ||perfidious: Lilit is hot! If I ever had to play her, I'd go out of my mind.|
|Aug-09-11|| ||wordfunph: <perfidious: Lilit is hot!>|
|Aug-09-11|| ||I play the Fred: <it is MMM-Kart-chian>|
Or in the present case, "Mmm, mmm, MMM!-Kart-chian."
|Nov-12-12|| ||HeMateMe: Hey, beautiful girl with a Scrabble rack. That is, her name seems to lack vowels. She's in the 64 player lotto. Good luck to you!|
|Aug-09-13|| ||perfidious: For Lilit's birthday, I would give her a vowel.|
|Oct-06-13|| ||wordfunph: oh ohhh, taken :(
|Dec-28-13|| ||John Abraham: She is a strong chess player and very beautiful|
|Jul-07-14|| ||WannaBe: Helllllllllo!! =))|
|Aug-09-14|| ||perfidious: <wordfunph: oh ohhh, taken :(>|
Dang--some people have all the luck!
I'd slip her a vowel anyway, just to remind her of what she is missing.
|Aug-09-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday to WGM/IM Lilit Mkrtchian. Good luck to her and her team, as the Armenians face the Americans. On board 2, she has the black pieces against IM Zatonskih.|
|Aug-09-17|| ||waustad: I believe that picture was taken when several players were at a Polish tournament and some photograhers were hired to do glamor pix of the contestants. There are also some very flattering pictures of a number of other players from that event. Lilit M has had other very nice pictures from elsewhere.|
