  Tabanus: Awarded the Woman Grand Master (WGM) title at FIDE's Presidential Board meeting 1/2010:

http://www.fide.com/component/conte..., congratulations!

Dec-14-12  waustad: Today in the European Blitz championships she beat Marcus Ragger 2-0.
Dec-26-12  waustad: She's playing at Wolfsberg Austria in a few hours.
Dec-26-12  Kikoman: Wolfsberg Open 2012 http://www.schach-wolfsberg.at/
Jan-02-13  waustad: She came in 3rd, half a point behind the leaders. Losing to Eva Moser in round 4 proved to be somewhat of a Swiss gambit since she only had to play one of the GMs, Zdenko Kozul who she beat in the 3rd round! http://chess-results.com/tnr88543.a...
Jan-12-13  Kikoman: A full standings in the tournament. ^^

http://www.schach-wolfsberg.at/erge...

Apr-09-13  waustad: She's in a match now: WGM Karina Szczepkowska-Horowska vs. IM Eva Repková The web site for this is: http://www.chess2013festival.sk/?pa...
Apr-09-13  waustad: Karina S-H leads 1.2 - .5 after the first two rounds. The third games will be played at 8:30 CET. Maybe I'll watch some if I'm still up.
Apr-10-13  waustad: KSH won the third game, but it isn't posted on the live link like the first two. It does seem strange having a 3 game match, but that is what they did.

  HeMateMe: Doesn't she resemble another Polish beauty, Paulina P., the 1980s swimsuit model?

I'm headed for Poland, next train.

Apr-26-13  waustad: I saw something that looked like Karina came in ahead of Monika Socko in the Polish womens championships but have seen pictures of her coming in 3rd. I'm confused.

  whiteshark: <waustad> Four players were tied 1st place after the championship, thereafter was a rapid double round robin among them. There again three players had equal points, after which SB points of the regular tournament decided the placing:

1 Monika Socko
2 Jolanta Zawadzka
3 Karina Szczepkowska-Horowska

  cro777: WGM Karina Szczepkowska-Horowska tied for third with Sopiko Guramishvili at the 3rd Women International Chess Tournament, Memorial of Krystyna Ho³uj-Radzikowska, which was held from 28th September to 6th October 2013 at the Chess Club KSz Polonia Wroc³aw, in Wroc³aw, Poland.

  HeMateMe: <http://en.chessbase.com/Portals/4/f...>
Apr-18-15  waustad: Her team in the Frauenbundesliga officially has her playing first board today, even though she is in China with the Polish national team. They are conceding on two boards, though it probably doesn't matter. They've pretty much clinched being dropped after this season.
May-19-15  waustad: Her loss today in the European Women's Individual Championship was probably the biggest upset in the first round. Going down the list (at least of the broadcast games), the better known player almost always won.
Jun-06-15  sonia91: <International Master (2015). >

Her IM title application wasn't approved at the last presidential board:

http://www.fide.com/component/conte...

Apr-11-17  waustad: She is listed in the roster of players for the European Women's Championship without the hyphen and second last name.
