Jun-25-05  Karpova: yes, the photo reports on are always very interesting and flamboyant.

i would prefer more analysis on the chess games

Oct-28-05  ChessVip: Anna Muzychuk is more talented than Vera Nebolsina
Oct-28-05  Karpova: Judith Polgar is more talented than Anna Muzychuk
Oct-28-05  ChessVip: you only can compare girls in the same age! Vera Nebolsina and Anna Muzychuk have 16 years old both...
Oct-28-05  Karpova: don't take it too seriously...
Nov-23-05  Karpova: Her result in the u18(w)-world chamionship:
43 WIM Nebolsina Vera 2278 RUS 6 2240

place 43, tournament performance below her rating - rather disappointing!

Jul-07-07  Karpova:

Interview with IM Ilya Odessky. Some excerpts:

<I am interested in women's chess from the position of fairness, not strength just as well as in women. If a woman comes to a door and opens it with her heavy shoulder, I am not interested in her. A woman should just stay exhaling fragrance and wait for me to open this door.>

<And what about women's events? Everything is clear. And if not, then it is most likely their problem, not yours. If a girl did not play 'your' move, she made a mistake, not you and if you finally turn an engine on, it will confirm that you were right. I have to tell you that this is a rare pleasure you don't get elsewhere, following any other kind of sport.>

<As for my personal preferences, I give them all to Vera Nebolsina. There are several reasons for it. First, Vera is a vegetarian, a stubborn one. The girl does not eat fish and meet for ideological reasons one can go crazy about it! Do as you wish, and I consider it a true feat.

Second, she wakes up at 7, sometimes even at 5. If I wake up before noon, it means I didn't sleep well and the day is spoiled. Vera rises at cock-crow, does morning exercises, takes a hardening shower (in my opinion, the Gestapo torture) brr! She is a hero twice.

Knows non-Russian language characteristically, French. She came to the '64' editorial office on a way from where and where to, do you think? From China to Moldova!>

Oct-09-07  pawnofdoom: She's not even the top seed at World Junior Championship (Girls) (2007) but she's gone off and is starting the tournament with a perfect 6/6 score! A full point ahead of second place
Oct-16-07  Karpova: Congratulations to Vera Nebolsina - the New U-20 Worldchampion (Girls section)!

10/13 points and a 2496 performance!

Oct-17-07  BIDMONFA: Vera Nebolsina


Nov-19-07  Udit Narayan: What a tremendous result!!! Congrats!!!
Jan-05-08  Eti fan: Another good tournament for Vera Nebolsina, this time in France.

She also did a nice simul with +17 =3 score

Feb-07-08  cbpatzer: Also an interview with photos, this girl could have been a model!
Aug-03-08  myschkin: . . .

Sep-10-09  midi900: she just played in the Najdorf Memorial open
Premium Chessgames Member
  beenthere240: She certainly attacks when she wants too. See her performance in the 2010 women's supertournament.

  sonia91: <won the U20 Girls' World Youth Chess Championship in 2007> Err, the U20 event is the World <Junior> Championship, not the World Youth, which include up to U18 category.

She is the girlfriend of Gata Kamsky:

  Penguincw: < She is the girlfriend of Gata Kamsky: >

Ah, that explains it. In Round 1 of the Nezhmetdinov Memorial, she held top seed Gata Kamsky to a draw with black.

The next top seed not to win their R1 game was 14th seed GM Alexandr Predke, who lost with black to untitled Anastasia Mamontova.

  PhilFeeley: Just won the Rilton Elo tournament with 9/9! Well done.

  whiteshark: <PhilFeeley: Just won the Rilton Elo tournament with 9/9! Well done.> From the tournament page:

[Rd 8] "WGM Vera Nebolsina has been dominating the Elo group and today she won her eighth game in a row, when she was up against Anton Nizov, the only player on six points and one point behind Nebolsina, before today's round. This makes Nebolsina's victory guaranteed with one round left, two points ahead. Congratulations! "

= = =

[Rd 9] "Yesterday we could already announce the winner of Rilton Elo WGM Vera Nebolsina after the fantastic result of eight wins in a row, but it did not end there since she also won her game today. An amazing total score of nine wins and a worthy winner. Congratulations! "
