Premium Chessgames Member
  Honza Cervenka: It is worth to mention that Nana Alexandria was a stable participant of Women WCh Candidates events since 1967 Candidates Tournament in Subotica to the 1988 Chaltubo Candidates Tournament. Only in the next WWCh cycle she failed to qualify herself from the 1990 Genting Interzonal Tournament. In between she managed to win two Interzonals as sole winner (Ohrid 1971 and Havana 1985, twice she was qualified directly as defeated Challenger from previous cycle) and once she was eliminated in the final match of Candidates tournament (by Alla Kusnir in 1971) and once she took the second place (Malmo 1986) only a half point behind the winner Elena Akhmilovskaya.
