  Benzol: Looking at the square colour on the board in front of her that photograph looks like its been reversed prior to printing. She was relatively young when passed away being only just over forty-four. What happened?
Mar-17-11  BLarsen1967: <Benzol> If I remember she died of cancer. - I found some info in Spanish,but not one word here about what caused her death - it appears she was a very popular and well-liked person

  AylerKupp: <Benzol> It's more than just reversal prior to printing. The board is incorrectly set up (notice the dark square on her right even though she's playing white) so it was likely a staged photo opportunity. I notice that a lot when I see chess sets on display. My wife gets on my case because, purist that I am, I insist on taking the time and rearranging the board properly.

<BLarsen1967> The article in the link you gave said that she was always seen smoking a cigarette. So maybe she died of lung cancer.

  OhioChessFan: I notice that a lot too. I have a Lasker book with a cover pic like that. Your wife should be happy that you'd notice the orientation of the board in that pic.

I think what <Benzol> is saying is that the photo was flipped horizontally. If so, then flipping it back would put the dark square on her left, where it should be:
