Mar-24-09  Kopenhagener: You are both right - the angel from Archangelsk was first in the European Championship for the second time !
Mar-24-09  percyblakeney: <first in the European Championship for the second time !>

And the first time was impressive enough with nine wins, the standard draw against her sister, and one 126-move draw:

European Individual Championships (Women) (2007)/Tatiana Kosintseva

Mar-24-09  DCP23: <the angel from Archangelsk>

Haven't heard that epithet before. Nice.

Mar-24-09  WhiteRook48: Sixth!
Mar-24-09  Jim Bartle: "Haven't heard that epithet before. Nice."

I recoiled a bit to see the word "epithet" applied, thinking it meant a negative description of something, or a swear word or phrase.

But then I looked it up, and DCP used the word correctly, that it's meaning can be neutral. Funny how the use of words drifts away from the proper definition.
