[what is this?]
Anna Markovna Akhsharumova was born in Moscow, USSR. Awarded the WIM title in 1977, she was USSR Women's Champion in 1976 and 1984 (=Svetlana Matveeva). She now has the WGM title. By all rights, she should have won the 1983 Soviet Women's title, held in Tallinn, when she defeated Nana Ioseliani after Anna won on time forfeit. It would have given Anna 12 points to Nana's 11 points. The next day, Ioseliani filed a protest alleging a chess clock malfunction. Anna refused to re-play the game. The result of Anna's game was reversed from win to loss by the All-Union Board of Referees in Moscow, thereby forfeiting Anna's title. Anna ended up in 3rd place. In 1987, Anna won the U.S. Women's Championship with a perfect 9-0 score. She is married to Boris Gulko. They immigrated to the United States in 1986. In 1990, she tied for 5th-6th place in the Genting Women's Interzonal Tournament.

  Benzol: Anna Markova Akhsharumova
(Mrs Gulko)
Born 9th January 1957 in Moscow
Awarded WIM title in 1977
She was USSR Women's Champion in 1976 and also won that title jointly in 1984.
Nov-23-08  centercounter: She was the 1983 USSR Women's Champion, period. The bio should be changed to reflect that. That USSR ruling runs directly contrary to FIDE's laws. A protest about a clock malfunction on the next day is ludicrous and no sane person can even recognize such a ruling as being made.
Nov-23-08  Jim Bartle: What happened in that 1983 tournament?

  brankat: Happy Birthday Anna!
Mar-22-15  Caissanist: Unlike her husband, Akhsharumova did not play chess for very long after arriving in this country. She was apparently one of the players who answered the 1990 ad that Bankers Trust placed in Chess Life at the instigation of Norman Weinstein, inviting titled chess players to apply to that company to pursue a career in investement banking. She applied and got a job, and that was the end of her competitive chess career.

  perfidious: Got to face Anna in a set of four blitz games one Tuesday night during the regularly held event at Harvard. Those were some strong tournaments, usually featuring a number of the toughest quick players in Boston, with the occasional GM putting in an appearance.
