  Karpova: Q: What was your most embarrassing moment at the chess board?

Elisabeth: <The most embarrassing moment was in 2002 during the Las Vegas Open. I had to leave the board crying tears of laughter as my neighbour acted very weird in time trouble. Embarrassing because I should have controlled myself. Obviously my neighbour could not do anything to control his nervousness.>

  Nightsurfer: <Elisabeth Paehtz> will try to become the no. 1 at the up-coming <"8th International Ladies Chess Gala 2013"> in Berlin on November 28th, 2013, thus eventually realizing her 5th win of the title. You will find more information by reading an interview that <Elisabeth Paehtz> has granted to German author Rene Gralla , herewith the link that will lead you to the (German-language) interview: http://www.neues-deutschland.de/art... ...

  waustad: Her team Bad Königshofen has taken the lead on tiebreaks over OSG Baden Baden and SF Deizisau in the FBL by virtue of crushing SK Lehrte by a score of 5.5-0.5. Bad Königshofen and OSG Baden Baden are scheduled to play in the penultimate round so perhaps we'll see a larger percentage of the name players than during last year's final weekend. http://www.schachbund.de/SchachBL/b...

  waustad: Victories over both Anna Ushenina and Marie Sebag have given her a very good start to the World Mind Games.

  waustad: With the snag they've run into getting Valentina Gunina for the I. Internationalen Erfurter Frauenschachfestivals they seem to be down to 2 GMs so far. Since it looks rather like the whole idea is to give Elisabeth Paehtz a shot at a GM norm, they would need another GM. I don't know if Tatiana Kosintseva has a committment for that time, but showing hospitality to a disaffected Russian might not be unwise for the organizers. The top end of German chess is as full of immigrants as in the US.

  waustad: With a 3/3 start in the Women's European Individual Championships, she will probably find that the going gets a lot tougher. She's the lowest rated player who is still on a perfect score, though some are fairly close to her.
Jul-10-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: After round 5 of European Individual Women's Championship (2014) she still has a performance rating just over 2600. If she keeps it up, it might be good for another GM norm. She would need to keep up that performance rating while playing the requisite number of GMs and will be playing her first here, Hoang Thanh Trang, tomorrow.

She already has one norm registered from the Bundesliga.

  waustad: <refused> It isn't my first error. It won't be my last.
Aug-28-14  Refused: Hehe, nobody's perfect, it was just one of the days I simply felt the urge to nitpick on something. And your post just happened to have some minor flaw in it. :)

So no offense.

  waustad: Tomorrow's second round in the FBL could determine the favorite to win the title, pitting Bad Königshofen against OSG Baden Baden. The former team has GM Zhao Xue and GM Valentina Gunina on the top two boards against the Muzychuk sisters playing for Baden Baden. Elisabeth Paehtz will be playing IM Anna Zatonskih, barring any changes from the rosters playing today. I haven't seen the games on live anywhere, which is a shame. It has been hit or miss for the last few seasons finding games from this league. This site often gives the most recent results: http://nsv-online.de/ligen/fbl-1415...

  waustad: She's listed as playing top board for SK Advisory Invest Baden 2 in the Niederösterreichische Landesliga 2014/2015. Their first round is tomorrow morning. Of course team members don't always play every (or sometimes even any) rounds. This league is somewhat unusual because they seem to play only one game each weekend they play, unlike most leagues where they play 2 or 3, or like some events where they play the whole season straight through. They play at 10:00 on Sunday mornings, presumably to allow travel home.

  waustad: There is an interview where she discusses her goal of reaching 2500 soon and more here (German): http://de.chessbase.com/post/leserg...
Oct-09-14  Lingfield Grove: She wont be playing in Germany as she is at Douglas Isle of Man all week. She going well in the early rounds of this strong meet.Pity EM couldnt make it to aid chances of a second GM norm.
Oct-09-14  Lingfield Grove: She is 3/5 at this poker stars tournament. See chess results ENG

  waustad: She won her first round game against Frank Karger playing bottom board for SV Hockenheim in the German Bundesliga. There isn't a page yet for the league here, but that should come fairly soon.
