Jul-09-13  epistle: Her excuse whenever she loses: her mother's ill.
Mar-03-19  Cibator: It appears from a recent post on the English Chess Forum that Anne Sunnucks - to use the name by which she was far better known in the chess world - passed on several years ago. 22 November 2014, to be exact.

  MissScarlett: This woman's got more names than Jana Malypetrova Hartston Miles Bellin.
Mar-03-19  Nosnibor: Was sbe not better known as Major Sunnucks?
Premium Chessgames Member
  John Saunders: I think she should be referred to as Anne Sunnucks since that was the name she went by during her active playing career and which she used when publishing her Encyclopaedia of Chess. She married late in life (not far short of 60) around the time she stopped playing in high-profile chess events.

Agreed. She played all her keygames and wrote books as Anne Sunnucks. I looked for her on here earlier today and only by chance looking elsewhere did I come across the married name and tried again.

is Judit Polgar to be called Judit Font.

Mar-18-19  Nosnibor: In the Bognor Regis tournament 1964 she was lying second equal with 5/6 half a point behind Dennis Mardle. She played him in round 7 and Mardle escaped with a draw having a lost end game. After this she lost her remaining four games to finish on a respectable 5.5/11.
