|Dec-18-14|| ||waustad: Her team in the Frauenbundesliga, Bad Königshofen, didn't play their scheduled match last weekend against Rodewischer SM. The former team has some members who were playing in tournaments elsewhere so perhaps the teams agreed to play on a different date. Last season several teams played a match before an officially scheduled round, but none after.|
|Dec-18-14|| ||whiteshark: <waustad> You are probably right about the reasons. note that this was the single round weekend, where the 'joint traveling teams' played against each other. Next FBL weekend is 24/25 Jan 2015 so it's still possible that both teams meet before the next round. ;D|
|Dec-19-14|| ||waustad: I'm mostly surprised that they are letting a much better team avoid playing on the official day to allow the top boards to be in town. Last year didn't work like that.|
|Dec-24-14|| ||waustad: In looking at the main Bundesliga page, they will play Jan 23. The single round weekend is even more complicated for the men's Bundesliga since it is being played on 3 different days. I had assumed it was a typo at first. Now I understand.|
|Jan-27-15|| ||whiteshark: FBL rd 5 match <Rodewischer SM vs Bad Königshofen> was played last Friday and ended 2:4.|
Here's FBL rd 6+7 cb report: http://de.chessbase.com/post/baden-...

|Jun-18-15|| ||waustad: Playing most days on board 4 for Germany at the Mitropa Cup, she makes the German team seem to be split 3-3 by gender, where most are 4-2. This tournament, however, seems to treat the men and women as playing in separate events, unlike the Chinese league where it looks like there must be women playing on the teams. IM Paehtz is by a fair amount the highest rated woman in either section and is also likely to be the only woman there for whom chess is a full time occupation. If I recall from the last Mitropa Cup there were prizes for the open section, women section and overall. The French only sent an open team, so Austria II is paired and seated as if they were the French women. At the moment the Hungarian women lead and the very young open Hungarian team is in last place.|
|Jun-18-15|| ||waustad: I suppose playing in the Alps must have sent her on a shopping spree. She's playing in a Dirndl. http://www.chess.at/gallery/var/alb...
Now she just needs a tray with many beers.|
|Sep-12-15|| ||waustad: It seems that the chessbase article about her recent marriage is only in German so far: http://de.chessbase.com/post/elisab...|
|Nov-03-15|| ||waustad: It will be interesting to see who actually plays in the expanded Austrian Frauenbundesliga. If top boards both play, in the first round the top two native German speaking women will meet with Elisabeth Pähtz playing for SK Baden and Eva Moser playing for SV Pamhagen. The latter team is much deeper, with Regina Theissl-Pokorna, who has recently transferred federations to Austria and a total of 5 players rated over 2200.|
|May-08-16|| ||sonia91: She crossed 2500 in the live ratings playing in the Women's French League: http://www.2700chess.com/women?per-...|
|May-09-16|| ||waustad: <sonia> I just noticed that. I don't know how many GM norms she has now, since I'm using a tablet and that doesn't allow one to navigate the FIDE menu structure.|
|May-16-16|| ||whiteshark: Congrats on brea♔ the <2500 barrier>! (◕‿◕✿)|
A short interview with her (on her German masters participation, living in and moving from Rome...) http://www.schachbund.de/news/kurzi...
|May-16-16|| ||waustad: To answer my own comment, she still has only one GM norm listed on the FIDE website. She may have earned more, but if so they are not yet posted. There seem to be quite a few tournaments that seem designed to make norms possible. 3 older GMs and a group of 7 IMs, WGMs and FMs looking for norms get together to play 9 rounds somewhere.|
|Oct-16-16|| ||Octavia: Congratulations on getting your grading up! AND playing for Dresden in the Bundesliga proper! You're likely to get another GM norm there!|
|Aug-04-17|| ||waustad: Congratulations on winning your match with Alexandra Kosteniuk in Erfurt.|
|Aug-05-17|| ||sonia91: <Congratulations on winning your match with Alexandra Kosteniuk in Erfurt.> Complete results: http://www.frauenschachfestival-erf...|
|Dec-16-17|| ||Octavia: You could practise your blitz games on lichess! Even Carlsen plays there!|
|Dec-31-17|| ||Gudrun: herzlichen Glückwunsch für 3. Platz im Weltschnellschach!! Und viel Erfolg im neuen Jahr!|
|Apr-01-18|| ||waustad: Congrats on the result in the European Women’s Rapid Championships. Chess-results has her winning on tiebreaks: http://chess-results.com/tnr330126....|
|Apr-01-18|| ||whiteshark: and also European Women’s Vice Blitz Champion the next day acc. to http://chess-results.com/tnr330130....|
|Apr-28-18|| ||offramp: She played 186 games in 2017, but that's just her games here at cg.com. There were probably many more. That's a lot of games.|
|Jun-07-18|| ||waustad: She’ll probably play for the women tomorrow at Mitropa. Germany has a .5 lead over Austria going into the final round. She has also played one game as board 3 on the open team. http://chess-results.com/tnr357939....|
|Oct-21-18|| ||ketchuplover: Drawn goes Karjakin!|
|Oct-21-18|| ||MissScarlett: Are you <TheFocus> in disguise?|
|Oct-21-18|| ||siggemannen: At the moment, she's rated slightly above her husband, Luca Shytaj|
