Nov-25-03  MoonlitKnight: Here is a better picture, from the European championship: I think she is the most beautiful chess player I have seen!
Nov-25-03  MoonlitKnight: By the way, she is 18 years old, from Greece.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <MoonlitKnight> You are soooooo right!
Mar-24-04  nullandvoid: I agree-she is the most beautiful chess player I have seen. Here is a recent picture of her:

Scroll to the bottom.

Mar-24-04  ConLaMismaMano: I think Scripchenko is the most beautiful chess player i've ever seen.
Mar-24-04  fatbaldguy: Now, now, aren't we supposed to be discussing chess prowess, instead of women's looks? What are these boards coming to? (also, Ksenya Rybenko is definitely cuter than Papadopoulou)
Mar-24-04  meloncio: Who cares about her ELO? She's sooooooooooooo pretty.

<fatbaldguy> No. Sorry, but I prefer the Mediterranean beauty.

Mar-24-04  seoulmama: You know guys, if you want to see some real beauty, check Regina Pokorna out. Tsssss.... smokin'....
Sep-25-05  Chessmaster9001: i like this girl

I don't mean maybe,
she's my baby doll...

Serious apologies to Gene Vincent.

  tpstar: Papadopoulou don't preach/I'm in trouble deep

<EmperorAtahualpa> #4 & #12 are the same shot. =)

Jan-09-06  EmperorAtahualpa: "Papadopoulou was a rolling stone!" (which song is that again?)

<tpstar> oops, too late now! :)

Sep-06-07  sneaky pete: Jan Engelman: Vera Papadopoulou (1930)

Ambrosia, wat vloeit mij aan?
uw schedelveld is koeler maan
en alle appels blozen

de klankgazelle die ik vond
hoe zoete kelen kindermond
van zeeschuim en van rozen

o muze in het morgenlicht
o minnares en slank gedicht
er is een god verscholen

violen vlagen op het mos
elysium, de vlinders los
en duizendjarig dolen

Sep-06-07  dehanne: This lovely chess player also sings in a band: The Mamadopoulous & the Papadopoulous
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <dehanne> Crude but OK. Only those over 50 remember the M's and P's.

Oct-01-16  The Kings Domain: A beaut. She should have been women's world champ. She would have put a good face (literally and figuratively) to the game.
