  RookFile: Very nice woman, and a strong chess player. Later, she went to Boston University, where, in ancient times, I had once graduated from as well.

  plang: I used to see her at US Opens. Is she still playing?

  WannaBe: Her last recorded tournament in the USCF web site is 2002

  WannaBe: FIDE has it April, 2002 was her last recorded tournament.
Premium Chessgames Member
  RookFile: Well, you don't go to BU for free, so chances are she's putting her degree to good use.

  Eric Schiller: Jennie doesn't play much anymore, but she was one of the top young stars from the West Coast and was featured in my book "Whiz Kids Teach Chess". She played at the World Youth Championships when I was coaching the team.
Jun-08-06  Bartleby: 1997 seems to have been her peak year. Most chess players, after entering their first serious tournament, reach their "peak" strength roughly eight years after that, and typically remain steady throughout their careers, or improve at a glacial pace (if they continue with the game) afterwards. This holds true assuming she entered her first tourney when 8-10 years old.

With Frenklakh, she slipped below the precipice of master rank into that purgatory of "strong expert" (I say, only because according to most of the masters I've spoken with, bridging that seemingly interminable 50-point gap betwixt 2150 expert and master is one of the most difficult obstacles of their chess careers). Then she retired in 2002, more or less. A common story, chess falling by the wayside after an individual's high school/college years. It happened to me, before I returned to it several years later, from a more scholarly perspective as chess as an organic and historical force.

There's another pic here, along with her rap sheet:

  wordfunph: Jennie Frenklakh played her first tournament when she was six. She was too short to reach across the board so she had to sit on a few large books and briefcases. She constantly forgot to press the clock so her dad wrote "TIME" in big letters on her scoresheet before the game.
Mar-27-15  zanzibar: She made a big impression on Sam Sloan in the 1995 US Open in Concord when she won her first five games:!t...

See also his tournament write-up in TWIC-46 (or thereabouts).

  RookFile: There's a facebook profile for her. She looks happily married and her new name is Jennie Bakondi.
