Jul-01-04  cousinIT: hmm...I was looking for a game between Matnadze and Azmaiparashvili but didn't find any. Was wondering weather they would agree to a 'chums' quick draw.

I have heard a rumour about them clashing on ICC before though..... (at chess)

Jan-02-06  BIDMONFA: Ana Matnadze


May-25-06  Commisar: Ana Matnadze is the cutiest chessplayer I´ve ever seen.
May-25-06  Commisar: dehanne, I had the honour to meet her pesonally back in november and she looked like this: By the way she plays on ICC under the nick Sarakhatkhan (quite often online) and is a very strong player as you can see And she is hugely sympathetic when you get familiar with her in person.
May-26-06  Commisar: How can we suggest them to include this picture of An, for example, in this page?
Dec-13-07  Udit Narayan: She is so cute. I like this picture a lot...
