  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.

  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.

  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.

  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.

  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.

  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.

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
