  norami: I don't know the language, but whatever Edwin Meyer wants from her, I bet the answer is no.
Jan-22-06  Edwin Meyer: Well, i hope she is modest enough to say no indeed. I wouldn't like it if she would say "i know". But i guess you are wondering even more now, about what i mentioned in my first comment (which is in Dutch). I was saying that i find her a pretty lady.
Jan-22-06  sneaky pete: "Modest" Edwin "literally" said: a (chess) whopper.
Jan-22-06  dakgootje: <EmperorAtahualpa> Wonder how many pics uses from the ones youve taken, but so far ive seen...several lol
Jan-22-06  Frape: Many succes in Wijk, Marlies!I am your big fan.
Jan-22-06  EmperorAtahualpa: The picture in Marlies Bensdorp's profile was taken during the game M Bensdorp vs S Atalik, 2006.
Jan-27-06  trumbull0042:
Jan-27-06  notyetagm: Pretty young woman.
Jan-27-06  THE pawn: I see the photo has been taken by the women's man kibitzer <emperoratahualpa>
Jan-27-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Good eyes, <THE pawn>. :)
Jan-27-06  notsodeepthought: <EmperorAtahualpa> It took a while, but I think we've finally found one whose looks we agree on.
Jan-27-06  EmperorAtahualpa: I don't think so, <notsodeepthought>. :)
Jan-27-06  notsodeepthought: Wait, now you're telling me you think she's ugly? Oh, man...
Jan-27-06  EmperorAtahualpa: <notsodeepthought> I've seen her in real life, you haven't...:)

P.S.: I wouldn't say she's ugly, she's just not my style.

Jan-30-06  Edwin Meyer: Am i lucky i've got multiple styles :)

  lostemperor: I think she's cute.

  lostemperor: Marlies scored relatively well in the strong Corus C-group. Her rating is 2230 while the average rating is 2458. Based on her rating she should have scored 3 points. She scored 4. Her average opponent rating must be almost 2480!
Apr-06-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Here's a picture of Marlies Bensdorp and Arlette van Weersel taken during the European Individual Championships 2006:

Apr-06-06  EmperorAtahualpa: And here's one taken during the opening ceremony:
Aug-19-07  Edwin Meyer: I've seen her in real life too! Just yesterday. When i drew a game against her at a mass simul in Amsterdam at the Euwe square. I think she looks even better. In real life. Yeah, i could fall for her. If i haven't allready ;-)
Jan-13-08  Udit Narayan: I like this one:

  Jim Bartle:

Nicole Kidman plays chess?

Apr-09-08  dehanne: I have a sister named Marlies. Pretty rare name outside the Netherlands.

When i drew a game against her at a mass simul in Amsterdam at the Euwe square.

Was that the simul that Marlies gave with her twin sister Laura against 14 pairs of twins?
