Dec-06-05  EmperorAtahualpa: Laura is the sister of Marlies Bensdorp. Marlies is supposedly the better player of the two, as she is seeded fifth in the Netherlands (at the time of writing), and Laura is seeded ninth. For the seeded list I am referring to, check here:

  GrahamClayton: Back in 2007 the Bensdorf sisters gave a tandem simultaneous exhibition in the Max Euwe memorial centre, located in Amsterdam. Their opponents were 14 pairs of twins! Unfortunately I do not have a record of what score the Bensdorf sisters made.
