  Stonehenge: Tabanus already posted that pic. Not that I mind :) But here's another one:

Dec-19-12  Helloween: With her sister...
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: It looks like the "Blue Lightning" team SF 1891 Friedberg in the Frauenbundesliga has been picked in part to create some very good publicity photos. They are actually doing well in the league too. Here is the roster: I didn't know who the one with all of the curly blond hair (Ticia Gara) was until today.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Here is one of many examples of what I mean:
Premium Chessgames Member
  Shams: <waustad> What's the collective noun for a team of cute female chessplayers?
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Since this photo is from WIKI commons, I think that she deserves a picture here:
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: I see that that pic has been linked to before here, but with other URLs. In any case she is stunning.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <waustad> Pas mal.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: There are other reasons that she was recruited for SF 1891 Friedberg. I've been looking at her games from the Hungarian league for the last two years and she has had tremendous results.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Besides, she's left handed - what's not to like.

  waustad: Here is an interview with Ms. Gara in English and Spanish (her part starts around the 8 minute mark):
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Her recent performance in the ETCC was not stellar, going -2 with an elo change of -23.4. It's hard to keep up when one has an outside world full time job. I hope she keeps playing league games and such because she plays interesting chess as well as being a lovely woman. She's had recent success in Hungarian leagues and is on the list for SF 1891 Friedberg in the German FBL so I hope it continues.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Chessbase has an articke with lots of pictures of Ticia Gara's match in Indonesia with Aurelia Medina. Looking at her ratings card, it appears that she went +3 -3 =0. With no games in the German leagues this year, she seems to go for either playing in Hungary or major trips, having chess playing vacations from her usual job.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: So much for that observation. She's playing now in France in a women's team tournament. She and her sister both seem to be playing for Annemasse. Games can be found here: for now. The results listing is silly because of multiple spellings and such.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Now both Gara sisters are playing at the 33rd Zalakaros festival. Perhaps this flurry of activity is to prepare for the olympiad.
Nov-27-14  HeMateMe: <>
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: She won again today, playing for Hungary in the Mitropa Cup. She has gone 3/3 and Hungary is in sole lead after 4 rounds.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Her rampage continues. She's now 6/6, playing 4 blacks. All of her opponents have been lower rated, but beating them with black is still impressive.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: She's now playing in Australia in the Australian Women's Championship. It is also a WIM norm tournament, so her WGM title was probably desirable to the organizers. Another European player at the tournament is Deimante Daulyte, who seems to be following the Alina L'Ami path of playing and taking pictures for chessbase. I don't know who they'll call the champion of a foreign player wins.
Jan-18-16  sonia91: It's not a championship, the correct name is Australian Women's Masters. Also the recently ended Australian and New Zealand championships had foreign players, but the highest ranked Australian (New Zealander in the case of the New Zealand Open) player took the title of national champion
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: <sonia91> Right you are. The chessbase article repeatedly mentioned the earlier tournament, the Australian Championship, and I must have confused them. In any case it is nice to see Ms Gara combining playing and having a full time non-chess job. Several of my favorite female players who are 30ish have cut back a lot on their play of late.
