Apr-21-05  Karpova: zeynab is older than turkan, isn't she?
Apr-21-05  percyblakeney: She is the oldest of the siblings with her 22 years, Shakhriyar is 20 and Turkan will soon be 16.
Apr-21-05  Karpova: <percyblakeney>


turkan is six years younger than zeynab but nearly rated as high as her`. there's no question who got the greater talent.

Oct-28-06  ahmadov: ahmadov: Unlike their brothers, neither Zeinab nor Turkan had any impressive performance at Essent (Open).
Oct-28-06  Karpova: <ahmadov: Unlike their brothers, neither Zeinab nor Turkan had any impressive performance at Essent (Open).>

Shakhriyar has a brother, too?

Oct-28-06  ahmadov: <Karpova: <ahmadov: Unlike their brothers, neither Zeinab nor Turkan had any impressive performance at Essent (Open).> Shakhriyar has a brother, too?> Sorry, that is my poor English, I meant brother without "s".
Mar-12-07  Dr.Lecter: Sounds too much like Mamedyarov. Does she have any relations with him?
Apr-06-07  Jafar219: <Dr.Lecter> Zeinab is Shakriyar`s sister. By the way Zeinab Mamedyarova shows good performance in Europian Individual Championship.
Aug-16-07  Yassoor: Best wishes for Abu Dhabi tournament
Aug-16-07  Karpova: Thanks for the nice picture of Zeinab, <ahmadov>!
Aug-16-07  ahmadov: <Karpova: Thanks for the nice picture of Zeinab, <ahmadov>!> <It is my pleasure, <Karpova>> By offering this picture and the other two I wanted to do something good for <CG> and the players alike ;)
Aug-16-07  ahmadov: <Yassoor: Best wishes for Abu Dhabi tournament> Can you post the official web site... I think I used to have it in previous years, but I do not remember it now...
Aug-21-07  Karpova: Zeinab's performance wasn't satisfying:

She scored 3.5 points with a performance of 2237

Aug-25-07  Yassoor:
This is the official website.. Actually I have attended all the tournament days.. Are you Zeinab's coach Mr. Ahmadov? Nice to meet you anyway!
Sep-08-07  Karpova: < Zeynab Mammadyarova boycotted Baku chess tournament

[ 07 Sep 2007 17:40 ]

<“I refused to attend the second internationals women tournament in Baku”, Azerbaijan national chess team member Zeynab Mammadyarova told APA-Sport. She did not attend the women’s tournament because of her sister Turkan Mammadyarova. “I did not know that my name was among the tournament participants. Ilaha Kadimova and Nargiz Umudova were among the participants. I protested against Nargiz as my sister Turkan is stronger than Nargiz in rating and has more experience. But the organizers did not accept my protests and I decided not to attend. Strong chess players should be invited to the tournament in Baku. This is the reason for low results of Azerbaijani representatives”.> /APA-Sport/>

Nov-04-07  stanleys: Nice picture of this young lady :
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: The highest elo rated player of her country <Zeinab Mamedyarova> is the eldest member of the Mamedyarov clan, her younger brother Shakriyar Mamedyarov is among the world elite while Turkan Mamedyarova has been among the strongest group players in the world junior girls championship.

Zeinab Mamedyarova is no different since she won the <World U18 Girls title> back in <2000>.

She already has two national titles and became <Woman Grandmaster in 2000>.

She won a silver medal in Istanbul Chess Olympiad and a bronze medal in <2002> Chess Olympiad held in Bled.


Mar-05-09  jon01: <stanleys: Nice picture of this young lady :;You can say that again! The chessgames picture isn't that attractive, but this is hot stuff.

  technical draw: I'm betting 1,000 chessbucks on her against Koneru, and guess what ? I DON'T CARE IF I LOSE!!
Mar-15-09  DCP23: <technical draw: I'm betting 1,000 chessbucks on her against Koneru, and guess what ? I DON'T CARE IF I LOSE!!>

I don't see you betting on Mamedjarova, there's only a total of 172 on her here

Grand Prix Istanbul: Rd 8: Koneru vs Mamedjorava

Was that meant to be a joke, or you're having second thoughts now?

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Ok <DCP23>, remember that 1,000? Turned out it was only 40. But the intention is what counts. Darn I keep forgetting this is a chess site; lot of smart people out there!
Mar-15-09  DCP23: <technical draw>

LOL! Too bad, because I actually have a bet on Koneru so your money would improve my odds. Still, every bit helps! Thanks for the C$40, feel free to bet more! :D

  Albertan: Zeinab has a rating performance of 2608 entering the last round of play at the 2010 Chess Olympiad! Wow!
Oct-02-10  dx9293: Hmm...this should give Zeinab a 20-Game GM Norm (Olympiad and Continental Championship norms count as 20 games). Since a player needs to face 1/3 GMs in a tournament now, and not just 3 GMs total, she will have to throw out her 1st round game (a player can ignore any game which they have won, provided this leaves them with enough games, titled opponents, etc.), and ignore her last game (since her last opponent is not a GM, which means Zeinab would only face 3/10 GMs, not the 1/3 required).

That will give her 3 GMs faced in 9 games (1/3) while keeping her 2600+ performance, since her Round 1 opponent is rated 1943.
