  waustad: For those interested in the Frauenbundesliga there are some games available for OSG Baden Baden at: http://www.rochade.de/live.htm

I don't think that they are usable here due to copyright issues and they seem ephemeral, so get them while they're there if you are a fan. It is often difficult to find out more about some players since transliteration from Cryillic to German is often quite different from transliteration to English.

  waustad: I was looking at the list for the Politiken Cup and noticed some of those I'd hope to see there were missing, until I realized that it overlaps with the European Individual Women's Championship (2013). They can't be in two places at once.

  virginmind: She married Peter Heine Nielsen in Dec. 2013. Right now they are both commenting live on the first round of FIDE Candidates Tournament 2014 - Khanty-Mansiysk. I wish them both a happy marriage!
Mar-13-14  RedShield: Well, I thought their chemistry was better than that of Trent and Gustafsson. She evidently has a liking for big men.

  kenkur: ...as do most women. Not dating 'down' (height-wise) is one of the last socially acceptable prejudices. Exceptions are occasionally made if the man has lots of $$$.
Mar-21-14  RedShield: Big, not tall.

You privy to her dating history?

Apr-16-14  Everett: Or is this your excuse as to why she kicked you out of bed?
