Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-19-04  rochade18: Foisor is in the women's top ten. She is the first (W)GM I have ever played (simultanously). That was yesterday and now I see some of her games in this should have been the other way round.
Jun-07-06  BIDMONFA: Cristina Adela Foisor

FOISOR, Cristina Adela

Nov-26-06  fgh: Today I defeated her in blitz. It was a nice game...
Jul-14-08  tud: Cristina, veniti la Montreal din nou ?
Premium Chessgames Member

Married to IM Ovidiu Doru Foisor, and mother of WGM Sabina Francesca Foisor (born 1989) and WFM Mihaela-Veronica Foisor (born 1994).

Sabina lives in USA, the rest of the family recently participated in this rapid event:

Romanian champion 1989 and 1998. Biography: (in Polish)

  Tabanus: The family runs this daily updated Romanian chess site (which gives a good first impression):

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: The eight time (incl. 2007, 2008 and 2009) winner of the Romanian championship IM Corina-Isabela Peptan did not participate this year. Cristina ended 3rd today:

Jul-22-10  Remizatorul: Nice pics gallery here...
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Today, Foisor defeated Nino Khurtsidze with black to catch Marie Sebag and Hoang Thanh Trang for the lead. Each have 4 victories and a draw.

With 6 others just half a point back, that doesn't leave much breathing room.

Mar-06-12  tud: They are a very nice chess family. I happen to know both.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Foisor beat Victoria Cmilyte with white today (C Foisor vs V Cmilyte, 2012) to tie a top the standings with Valentina Gunina. Both have five wins and two draws.

A little bit of breathing room, with only two players half a point back and eight a full point behind.

I believe these two face off tomorrow, and it's going to be an important one, as there are only 2 rounds left.

Mar-10-12  virginmind: after the draw today with gunina she still keeps first place (shared with gunina and a. muzychuk). bravo for these excellent games at the european championship, cristina, and good luck in the remaining ones!

Feb-03-17  waustad: She is listed as Olga Girya's opponent in the WWCC tournament in Tehran. I'm not sure how they are going to handle this.
Feb-06-17  paavoh: Sad news. A great loss for the family and for the chess world.

I'm afraid she can't hear you.

  Messiah: I was very sad when she passed away. She had a very charming personality, exactly the type the chess world needs badly and constantly.
