|Apr-01-06|| ||WTHarvey: Hoang showed up in the FIDE top 10 women list in April for the first time. Here is a little collection of puzzles from her games: http://www.wtharvey.com/hoan.html|
|Apr-01-06|| ||Open Defence: Nice chess pieces you use on your site Harvey, they look like something from a Czech or a Hungarian tournament book|
|Dec-24-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Hoang Thanh Trang|
HOANG THANH TRANG
|Dec-24-06|| ||crazy monk: The top 10 women GM in the world, also the greatest WGM of the country of Vietnam, now playing for Hungary.|
|Sep-03-07|| ||whiteshark: Hoang Thanh Trang is 25 years old [in 2005; born 1980]. Hoang is her family name. Trang, which should be pronounced “Ciang” is her name, while Thanh (which means something like “blue sky”) is her second name, called in Vietnam “intermediate name”. She was born in Hanoi, but when she was ten years old her family moved to Budapest, where they presently live. She was World Champion for girls under 20 in 1998. Hoang is WGM and IM with two GM norms. She is studying economy at the University of Budapest.|

|Dec-29-07|| ||alexmagnus: Do the 1989 games really belong to her? I can hardly imagine Kholmov agreeing to a short draw against a 9-year-old girl...|
|Dec-29-07|| ||Chesstalesfan: Because he was not interested to defeat a 9-year old girl. Nor to be defeated..either|
|Mar-15-09|| ||Albertan: Hoang Thanh Trang is currently leading the European Women's Individual Chess Championship with a score of 6/7!|
|Aug-17-10|| ||Tabanus: Placed 2nd in First Saturday GM (Hungary) 7-17 August 2010:|
|Mar-06-12|| ||Penguincw: Trang won her game with black against N Ziaziulkina vs Hoang Thanh Trang, 2012 to catch Marie Sebag and Cristina Adela Foisor for the tie for first. Each now have 4 victories and a draw. |
With 6 others just half a point back, that doesn't leave much breathing room. Will she have a repeat of 10th European Individual Women's Championship (2009), where sadly she stumbled in the last 2 rounds and finished with "only" 7.5/9?
|Mar-07-12|| ||Penguincw: Today, Hoang Thanh Trang downed Olga Girya to score 5.5/6. That is half a point ahead of 4 rivals, and a full point ahead of 5 different women (and 1 1/2 over 15 ladies scoring +2).|

Well right now she is tied for first after seven rounds of the <14TH EUROPEAN INDIVIDUAL WOMEN'S CHESS CHAMPIONSHIP> with Gunina.

European Individual Women's Championship (2013)/Hoang Thanh Trang
She won 7 games and did not lose even once! A *stupendous* tournament.
|Aug-04-13|| ||alexmagnus: Congratulations on the title!|
|Aug-04-13|| ||Expendable Asset: A surprising, unexpected finish.|
|Aug-05-13|| ||weisyschwarz: Congratulations!! Your play was wonderful.|
|Dec-28-13|| ||John Abraham: Good player|
|Aug-26-14|| ||offramp: Destined to become one of the greatest Hungarian chess players.|
|Nov-10-15|| ||sonia91: Looking at her FIDE rating history at OlimpBase (http://www.olimpbase.org/Elo/player...) I found out that she had as first rating, at 12 y.o., 2300, although dropped to 2180 in the following list. In 1995, at 15 she had 2405 and took part in the Kishinev Interzonal tournament, which qualified for the Women's Candidates tournament; at first I thought it was a homonymous player, but this TWIC report http://www.theweekinchess.com/html/... shows it was really her (2405 rating).
So it seems she was a prodigy in her teens, for female standards. I think very few female players participated at 15 in women's world ch. cycle tournaments in the 1990s.|
|Nov-11-15|| ||alexmagnus: Female prodigies are usually not worse than male prodigies - see Lahno, Humpy or Hou at their respective early teens. Then somewhere in the teens the rating gets stuck for 3-6 years.|
