Kibitzer's Corner

Dec-19-04  WMD: I remember reading that the first GM she beat was Jim Plaskett in a rapidplay event, using a line she'd learned from John Nunn's Beating the Sicilian 2.
Dec-19-04  Pawsome: I know that eye condition. It accompanies a sore elbow and a dry throat and occurs the morning after celebrations the night b4. I wonder what Harriet's been drinking out of that mug? Say <tpstar> is that a rockfish you have for an avatar?
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <Pawsome> Then she shouldn't play 1. b4 if it's going to make her ill!

Maybe it's a rookfish instead. :-)

Dec-23-04  Pawsome: Maybe she shouldn't play the Knight to b4. I once caught a rockfish, a snapper similar to the one pictured on your avatar, when fishing for halibut. A fisheries scientist who was fishing with me asked snipped off its otolith, analyzed it some time later and reported to me, long after I'd eaten the poor creature, that t was 80 years old.
May-17-05  humanehuman: I once caught a Fish, in a rook pawn ending. He had a draw, but bit on a trap, and I reeled him in.
Oct-15-05  Norman Glaides: Is Harriet with anyone at the moment? I think I fell in love with her today at the Bury St. Edmunds Congress.
Oct-15-05  GBKnight: <Norman> Was that before or after she mated you? Sorry could not resist.
Oct-15-05  Anastasia: me n my pal hariet got smashed last nite
Oct-15-05  WMD: <Norman Glaides> Yes, I could really give her one as well.
Oct-15-05  Anastasia: yeah well i aksed my friend and she says u make her want to throw up

  Albertan: "Having completed her Doctorate Degree, Harriet Hunt is currently employed by Cambridge University as a Research Associate at the McDonald Institute of Archaeological Research. Less active as a chess player, she nevertheless manages to maintain a high rating, preserving her status as England's top woman player and holding a regular place in the world's top 50 women.In 2008, she participated at the Stockholm Ladies Open, held in Täby, a northern municipality. The event was described by Hunt as one of the largest and best funded women's tournaments of all time and she performed well, finishing on 6½/9, a half point behind overall winner Anna Muzychuk, who she defeated in their personal encounter in round 6."

Nov-18-10  BobCrisp: Posher than <Kate Middleton>.

Dec-03-11  waustad: While poking around the net I noticed that she used to play for a team called Pride and Prejudice. Well done! I also saw that she was used as an example of how promising young players are lured away from chess by what I'll call reality.
