Kibitzer's Corner

Feb-12-14  waustad: Her chances for a prize went up at the Internationales Casino Open Graz 2014 A-Turnier when Eva Moser dropped out. Now she is the second highest rated female player, just a few points behind Lei Tingjie.

By the way, it is a nice new picture. She finally looks like an adult here.

Feb-15-14  waustad: She's on the video a lot now because she's playing Andrei Istratescu on board 1. Obviously this is rather ephemeral and there isn't away to nuke it after an hour.

  ketchuplover: Apparently she's a chess ambassador or something now.
May-15-14  waustad: I think the actual title is something like Ambassador Against Racism if I recall correctly.
May-15-14  Karpova: She does not only represent the campaign against racism, she is also one of the official ambassadors for the Tromsö Chess Olympiad 2014 (together with Magnus Carlsen, Anatoly Karpov, Susan Polgar, Alexandra Kosteniuk, Lars Monsen, Sigurd Rushfeldt and Hans Olav Lahlum).


May-15-14  waustad: Ah yes, in the English version I see, "Ambassador for the Olympics." In earlier articles that were in German I remembered "gegen Rassismus" in more than one article. She was usually photographed by some sort of poster. As always, it would be dangerous to trust my German much beyond the daily life sort of thing with which I have much more experience.
May-15-14  waustad: For that matter Alexandra Kosteniuk is a good ambassador for something international: playing for Russia, while champion (female and open) of Switzerland and living in Florida. I admire anybody who finds a way to make an honest living out of playing a board game, but that is one of the better combos.
May-22-14  waustad: She's playing in a tournament in Denmark now: http://www.fredericia-skakforening.... She would need 6/9 to get another IM norm, though she's drawn her first two games.
May-25-14  waustad: It looks like SF Friedberg is looking for a new sponsor right after winning the Frauenbundesliga championship.
Jun-30-14  MarkFinan: I accepted a friend request from someone called Mel Ohme a few months ago and I could not for the life of me think how I knew her. I sent her a private message (blanked lol) asking how I knew her because I didn't remember putting in a friend request, and just now I checked my facebook and she's always on there always posting pics and status update so I just checked one of her posts and she was talking about the Royal game. I was just about to impress her with my VAST!!!!!!!!! knowledge of chess when I thought I'd better check if she's any good first..

Seems she's a little bit better than me, haha. Lovely lass though, always friendly.... Even if she did ignore my first inquisitive PM.

What a small world. 😃

Aug-06-14  waustad: Daniel King interviews her here:
Aug-09-14  dehanne: What a nice girl.
Sep-27-14  waustad: The first round of the FBL featured some serious beatdowns. With Ms Ohme playing on board 1 SF Friedberg swept SK Lehrte 6-0. That leaves the team in a 3 way tie for first, as Bad Königshofen and USV VB Halle also swept. Sadly the games are not on live anywhere to the best of my knowledge, but results can be found here:
Sep-28-14  waustad: The second round didn't go as well, with an individual loss to Monika Socko and a team loss by 1-5 to Hamburger SK. Looking at the roster, they probably will end up in the upper half of the table, but will most likely struggle against teams like OSG Baden Baden and Bad Königshofen.
Sep-29-14  waustad: The games from her venue from the first weekend of the FBL are available here: Sadly those from the other two venues don't seem to be so far.
Jul-31-15  waustad: Here is a video or her giving a simul:
Jul-31-15  Harvestman: Nice little video. Do you know the results from the simul?
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <simul video> This was the simultan given collaboratively by <WGM Melanie Ohme> and <IM Nikolas Lubbe> on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the partnership between the <German Chess Youth> and Children's Fund <Terre des Hommes> on the occasion of the 35th anniversary of the Lower-Saxonian club <SK Wildeshausen> on July 11th, 2015.
Aug-01-15  waustad: The video works fine when I approach it via FB.
but trying it from this page I had trouble, though it worked immediately after posting it. Curiouser and curiouser.
Aug-01-15  Harvestman: Ohm Sweet Ohm by Kraftwerk
Dec-06-15  waustad: She just got married and her new name is Melanie Lubbe.
May-09-16  waustad: She and her husband, IM Nikolas Lubbe, were leading the Fredericia 2016 tournament. In the final round they played each other. They clearly played a real game instead of the typical boring draw that happens in such situations:

  Retireborn: Lubbe, lubbe me do?
May-09-16  waustad: I don't know if 6.5/9 was enough for her to get an IM norm, but it was probably close. One reference to the tournament had IM in the name, so it looks like it was an IM norm designed event. Lubbe is more in need of GM norms, since he's been over 2500.
Sep-22-16  waustad: They now have a combined chesspage:
