Jan-12-09  Morphischer: This can't be an Olympiad
These can't be Women
This can't be 2008
Jan-12-09  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Your second line puzzles me. Is there a third party? :D
Jan-12-09  MostlyAverageJoe: This game is worse: K Kanakari vs M Przezdziecka, 2006
Jan-17-09  WhiteRook48: Gee, this is a horrible game by Black.
Feb-24-09  WhiteRook48: 6...N8c6??
Sep-17-09  Hot Logic: To be fair the player might be from a country where it is 'immoral' for women to play chess with men, or in public, or it's just illegal to play chess period. So I'm not too surprised this happened in the olympiad.

Another possibility is that the losing player was no great chess player but just happened to be a relative of the local sports minister or something like that and it was a 'free' trip to Germany.

  FSR: The player of the black pieces is from Afghanistan. Given the opportunity, the Taliban would probably assault her for having the nerve to play in a chess tournament.

  perfidious: A rather more interesting game in this gambit was I Theodorovich vs H Ridout, 1976.

I know, the word is spelled with a Z, but Z is far from common in chemical symbols.
