Oct-16-04  mack: Does Mr Milligan have no forename?
Premium Chessgames Member
  paulalbert: This is Ms. Helen Milligan, an interesting lady whom I had the pleasure of meeting when she worked at the British Chess Magazine store on Baker Street in London. Her academic background is in physics. Paul Albert
Oct-17-04  mack: Well thank you for that. Shows me up for presuming that every chess player is male.
Aug-25-06  BIDMONFA: Helen Milligan


Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: Looks like Jonathan Speelman.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: When she plays, how many Milligan(s) is she allowed? :-))
Premium Chessgames Member
  Jonathan Sarfati: She has a doctorate in astrophysics, WFM title and according to Richard Taylor chessforum she is the wife of GM Murray Chandler, with whom she has co-authored Chess for Children.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: She was in the North Island Tournament and seemed a very nice person - she was in the finals - I mean she had a good score - everyone was playing badly though ... myself included - I think the time control was too fast and two games a day is difficult.

Murray Chandler and her are living here in Auckland now.

She must be pretty bright to have degree in astrophyiscs... those guys know things most people can never even start to think about: but the cosmos fascinates us all.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: She got seconded into taking the photos of the various winners in the North Island Championships today. I spoke briefly with her. That photo of <BIDMONFA>'s doesn't do her justice BTW.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: Happy Birthday Helen.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: Many happy returns again Helen.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: Same here - I played Helen in recent rapid - she played the "Moscow var" a line anaylsed by Murray Chandler in book she has written on those systems!

<Benzol> See her response to Peter Stuart's English (as played v you) - it will show you a good line versus what he played - which is o.k. I was looking at it today.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Richard> Thanks for the heads up on her game with Peter Stuart. However, to me Helen's position in that game still appears to be difficult.
Apr-03-09  Dredge Rivers: M-I-double L-I
GAN spells Milligan!

  Benzol: All the best on your birthday Helen.


Aug-14-12  waustad: It is interesting that she's playing in the olympiad but her husband, Murray Chandler, isn't.
Oct-20-12  drakkenboy: I don't think Helen Milligan is the wife of Murry Chandler because last time i saw him he was with his NEW Girlfriend
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: She's the webmaster of 'Gambit Publications'.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: Just wondering why it says that some of her 2016 Olympiad games are played in Tromso?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sally Simpson: Happy Birthday Helen.
