Oct-25-03  Helloween:


The sultriest eyes in cinema history. Definitely a contender for best looking chess player in history.

Mar-27-05  Karpova: <helloween: The sultriest eyes in cinema history. Definitely a contender for best looking chess player in history.>

though these contests about best looking chessplayers are senseless all the way only professional chessplayers should be regarded. She could play chess, ok. schwarzenegger can play chess also so he's supposed to be, maybe, the strongest chessplayer of all times?

Jul-08-05  Sasquatch777: I have to agree with helloween. I would have tried for a 75 move game!
Aug-25-07  Karpova: <<I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that.>

<<Looking at yourself in a mirror isn't exactly a study of life.>

Mar-11-09  Dredge Rivers: Let's see:

Eliza Dushku doesn't get an entry, but Lauren Bacall does? Yeah, that's fair! (NOT!!!)

Mar-11-09  suenteus po 147: <Dredge Rivers> I suppose whether or not it is actually fair depends on whether or not Ms. Dushku plays chess.

  Jim Bartle: Eliza Dushku is a beautiful young actress, no question, but she will never be a Lauren Bacall. Not even close. "Just put your lips together and blow!"
Mar-14-09  Dredge Rivers: <suenteus po 147>
Eliza Dushku <does> play chess. She recently took it up and has mentioned the fact in several interviews, including the current issue of Maxim.

DO try to keep up! :)

Apr-27-09  Dredge Rivers: Plus, Eliza Dushku never spat on someone for asking her if she remembered her first movie premiere. Lauren Bacall did!

  HeMateMe: Im just happy that a beautiful young woman could be drawn to a cranky, older heavy drinker. It gives us hope...When Julia Roberts married Lyle Lovitt, I was buying rounds that night.
