|Mar-17-13|| ||jsy: <HeMateMe> Just 5 or 6 years ago there were only about 11 women with the full GM title (including 4 who were "gifted" the title - Kosteniuk is 1 of the 4). Now there are over 20 - rating inflation happens for women also.|
BTW - I believe the "gifting" of Kosteniuk's GM title unjustifiably cheapened her title. There is no question in the years that followed that she would have gotten her GM title through norms anyway - so who needs the "gift" and the controversy that comes with it.
|Mar-17-13|| ||HeMateMe: <jsy> Just curious, can that be verified? Has AK beaten two GMs in a tournament where there were more than two GMs in the tournament? I don't think she has done too well in men's classical time control events, but she may have beaten several women with the full GM title. I don't follow it that closely.|
|Mar-19-13|| ||HeMateMe: "...like, I just hope, you know, that <TP Star> writes another glowing caricature of me because that, you know, would be REALLY cool!|
Has anyone been to my website to buy the "Free Lindsay Lohan" T-shirts and that hybrid of Madonna's <Sex> book and my "nude chess" photos, set in a lovely coffee table format? Madge told me she "...fantasized about being on a medieval battlefield and being ravaged during a pawn storm."
Hey, that's awesome! You can't argue with the material girl, when she is accepting material, right?
Once I get that infomercial up and running for <Fruit Chess>, I'll own my own plane, just like Suzanne Summers.
|May-23-13|| ||Caissanist: Actually 21 female GMs isn't all that much, since there are 1409 GMs total now.|
|Jul-18-13|| ||perfidious: <Professeur Y: <BishopofBlunder: You know, I liked this page much better when all we ever talked about was how hot Jenny Shahade was...> I must agree, she is cute, feminism aside.>|
Played a tournament or two with her and never even noticed her looks, nor would I if we had met in other circumstances. There are more important things than mere physical appearance.
<DP12: I think (that's) exactly the attitude which pisses Ms. Shahade off.>
That is at least highly probable-not that I would blame any woman who felt that way.
|Jul-18-13|| ||perfidious: <hayton3: <We need more of these Feminist and Ethnic Shakespeare classes> No we don't. The hallmark of great literature is its richness and diversity and the abundance of ideas and philosophies that can be milked from it. The danger of catering to 'political' interpretations of literature is to overlook the very abundance of ideas and that allow great literature to transcend the 'political' and address the mightier issues of mankind's plight. Unfortunately that very richness and abundance is what allows unbalanced types to skewer the interpretation to their own blinkered view of the world....>|
<Literature should never be dumbed down or hijacked to justify the politically correct. That way leads to insidious intellectualism and the dark ages of politco-religious expediency which is what (prompted) great writers like Voltaire to write in the first place!>

Not really, unless you suffer from prosopagnosia and all you see are some blotches of red and blue.
|Jun-14-14|| ||cro777: Jennifer participated at the U.S. Game/10 minutes Championship in Las Vegas, 8 round Open Swiss tournament, scoring 4.5/8.|

|Oct-07-14|| ||HeMateMe: I just hope the poker players aren't fat, naked guys. We've seen enough Naked Chess already.|
|Oct-07-14|| ||TheFocus: <HeMateMe> I am sure you would play Naked chess with Jennifer.|
|Oct-07-14|| ||HeMateMe: I might even spot her a Bishop.|
|Oct-07-14|| ||waustad: There is more in the English language version, including video: http://en.chessbase.com/post/pokers...|
|Dec-11-14|| ||MissScarlett: <Philadelphia chess grandmaster Jennifer Shahade made history on Dec. 9, by winning the €10,000 Open-Face Chinese Poker World Championship High Roller organized by TonyBet Poker at King's Casino in Prague. Shahade walked away from the tournament room with the €100,000 top prize and the honors of bringing home the richest open-face Chinese (OFC) poker event in history.>|
|Dec-11-14|| ||HeMateMe: Is this her? A lot of weird photos come up from the Spragett site.|
|Dec-11-14|| ||MissScarlett: Looks more like Jennifer Lawrence.|
|May-02-15|| ||TheFocus: <Chess can learn a lot from poker. First, chess media and sponsors should emphasize it's glamorous aspects: worldwide traveling, parties and escape from real world responsibilities> - Shahade, Jennifer.|
|May-02-15|| ||Absentee: Stuff like that makes me cringe.|
|May-02-15|| ||john barleycorn: Her mind was out of her when she said that. Another glamorous aspect.|
|May-02-15|| ||TheFocus: <Playing chess is more athletic than artistic. Champions are more concerned with victory than beauty: it's war with occasionally graceful kicks> - Shahade, Jennifer.|
|May-02-15|| ||HeMateMe: I guess the players want the prize money, so they can pay their bills. Shahad gave up competitive chess long ago; her opinion is irrelevant.|
When's the last time beauty was mentioned in how you play your cards in poker? Poker seems to be a game of odds and also in quickly recognizing the playing styles of the other players at the table and applying numerical theory to those observations.
|May-02-15|| ||OhioChessFan: <When's the last time beauty was mentioned in how you play your cards in poker? >|
The last time Jennifer Tilly was on TV.
