<Hot Logic> thou art well-named....

  whiteshark: "Now an interesting question arises. If Short and Cheparinov replay the game, will Anna Rudolf case change? May be not over the refusal of handshake, but the story there was much deeper and a precedent that should be examined carefully. The Hungarian Chess Federation has sent an official letter to FIDE. <Viktor Novotny from Novoborsky has just informed us that Anna starts playing in the Czech republic at Mariensbad Open. She played for her club last week, and her coach Ben Purton informed Chessdom she drew successfully another grandmaster - GM Conquest.> "

Feb-07-08  slomarko: i don't know if this was posted here already but here is an interview with her:

seems that she's trying to use exactly the same defense as Kramnik tried in Elista: <I usually went away from the board when it wasn't my turn to move: I like to go out to the fresh air and also to wash my face. Moreover, I played most of my games on the stage, broadcasted, so I didn't have to sit at the board to see my position.>

  GrahamClayton: Has Anna Rudolf faced accusations of cheating in any of her recent tournaments?

Have her 3 accusers made any subsuquent claims of cheating by other players since the Rudolf incident?

  cro777: Anna Rudolf following World Championship match even on her birthday.

Happy Birthday!

Nov-12-14  Rookiepawn: Perfect solution: naked chessplayers! Bet that would make chess popularity skyrocket.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: No doubt <John A> I have found the older I get the more I find redheads innately attractive.
Mar-13-16  MindBoggle: As far as I know, one of the requirements to become an IM (apart from the norms) is to achieve an elo of at least 2400. According to wiki, Anna's peak rating is 2393. If that is true, then how did she become an IM?
Mar-13-16  morfishine: <MindBoggle> One can automatically achieve IM for a specific performance bypassing the regular 3-Norm requirement. Minimum ELO is not required
Premium Chessgames Member
  sonia91: <MindBoggle> A <live> rating of 2400+ is enough, no need to be published; same thing for all other titles.

I checked now her IM title application at her FIDE pge: she had a live rating of 2401 after round 2 of a tournament she played in 2010.

Jan-22-17  Conrad93: This is the cutest chess player I've ever seen. Almost makes me want to be a GM.
Jan-22-17  Mr. V: Her interviews with players are interesting and fun. Chess 24 is lucky to have so many great personalities working for them.
