Kibitzer's Corner
May-28-13  waustad: She got a WIM norm at the Vienna Chess Ladies tournament. There had been hopes earlier in the tournament that WIM Kopinits might also get a WGM norm, but her strong start fizzled out.
Aug-09-14  waustad: Today she won the clinching game in the olympiad against Guatamala. Austria was the elo favorite in all boards, but Lisa Hapala lost on board 4, leaving the teams tied with only Newrkla's game remaining. Veronika Exler, playing on board one drew with Silvia Sotomayor, missing a winning shot on move 29.
Sep-07-14  waustad: In the Viennese championship B section I ran across a player named Alexander Newrkla. Born in 1956 he's a bit young to be her grandfather though father or uncle would be a likely fit. They are the only two FIDE rated players with this last name and are both from the same city. 10 or 12 years ago he was around her strength now. Does anybody know if there is a family connection?
Oct-05-14  waustad: Though she played well in the first weekend of the Austrian Damenbundesliga, her team ASVÖ Wulkaprodersdorf lost unexpectedly to Mayrhofen/SK Zell/Zillertal in the second round when she drew with Anna-Lena Schnegg and Wu Min bested Evelyn Rampler. Although all of the top female players in Austria are nominally members of one of the teams, many didn't play this weekend. SV Schachamazonen Graz have the lead after 3 rounds, even without first board Eva Moser.
Jun-14-15  waustad: In the first round of the Mitropa Cup, Austria ! played Austria II and her win over Lisa Hapala gave Austria I the victory. It is often confusing since sometimes Ms Hapala is called Lisa and sometimes she's referred to by Elizabeth. The Austrians have two teams because the French only sent a men's team. Elisabeth Paehtz is the only woman playing on her country's open team this year.

In the first round there was some sort of glitch so over half the games, including all of the games from the women's boards, were not broadcast. Hopefully that will be rectified before tomorrow. From the webcam it was clear that everybody was playing on a DGT board.

Jul-06-15  waustad: I had suspected that the reason that both she and her pal Veronika Exler weren't playing in the Austrian Rapid and Blitz championships was that it was so close to the Mitropa cup. Perhaps that was an issue too, but the two Viennese ladies had the opportunity to train with the Webster University Vienna branch with Susan Polgar and quite a few higher rated players around the same time.
Jul-29-15  waustad: After her win against Anna-Christina Kopinits she's tied for first place in the Austrian Women's championship. I'd thought that ms Kopinits was in a different venue, since she's on a fixed board and hadn't been seen on the webcam. Perhaps that isn't the case since a tall woman with hair like hers was shown from the back right after she lost to Katharina. Curiouser and curiouser.
Aug-02-15  waustad: Congratulations on winning the Austrian Women's Chess Championship with a score of 7.5/9. This left her 1/2 point ahead of her long time friend Veronika Exler for the title.
Aug-17-15  waustad: With 2.5/3, including 1.5/2 against IMs she has a very good start for a norm of some start. Tomorrow she'll be playing the new Austrian team member Regina Pokorna, so she'll have played enough titled players for a WGM norm and way more than would be needed for a WIM norm. This is in the A section of the Vienna Open.
Aug-23-15  waustad: The tournament is not going as well as she might have hoped, but she may be over 2200 live now, and a WIM norm might be possible if she wins later this morning.
Oct-30-15  waustad: After winning the Austrian Women's Championship, she was interviewed by Frau Schach:

In a week the new season for Austrian team chess will begin. This year the Damenbundesliga will be expanded (and it seems that it has been renamed Frauenbundesliga) so that they will have 4 players per team and allow some foreign players. Hopefully the games will be available, though it may be difficult to broadcast them live since they will be played at the same time as the Austrian Bundesliga 1 and they may not have enough DGT boards for both.

Nov-06-15  waustad: ASVÖ Wulkaprodersdorf was successful against Schach ohne Grenzen in the first round of the Austrian Frauenbundesliga, in large part due to the two Viennese players, with Katharina Newrkla winning over the higher rated Hanna-Marie Klek and Veronika Exler beating Christin Anker. The latter game was the last one finished and isn't posted yet:
May-31-16  waustad: Happy Birthday!
May-31-17  waustad: Another year goes by. I hope it was a good one.
