[what is this?]
Born in Vilnius, WGM Baginskaite learned chess at the age of 8. She was Lithuanian Women's Champion at 15, the youngest to achieve that honor. Playing for the Soviet Union, Camilla won the World Women U-20 Championship in 1987, earning her the WIM title. In 2000, she shared the U.S. Women's Championship with Elina Groberman and came second to Anna Vitalyevna Zatonskih in the US Women's Chess Championship (2009). Her victory in the 2000 US championship qualified her for the Women's World Chess Championship 2001 in Moscow, where she reached the last sixteen. This was, at the time, the best result for a female U.S. chess player since the Championship was founded in 1927. She was defeated by Yuhua Xu in a tiebreak. Next year in 2002, she earned her WGM title.
During the Women’s Chess Olympiads in 1994 and 1996, she played top board for Lithuania. After she moved to San Francisco in 1997, she played for the US. At the Chess Olympiad in 2000, she played top board for the women's (USA) team. In 2002 she played 2nd board, 2006 as a reserve, and returned for the women's 2010 Olympiad team on the 4th board.
She is the wife of GM Alexey Vladislavovich Yermolinsky, and they have two sons. She is also a chess teacher, playing only a handful of rated games in the last few years, although she competed in the USA Women Championship (2010), the Women's World Championship Knockout Tournament (2010), the US Championship (Women) (2011) and US Championship (Women) (2012).

|Mar-06-06|| ||jamesmaskell: A photo of Camilla after her third round victory over Nakamura in the US Championship|
|Mar-06-06|| ||Karpova: <jamesmaskell> the link shows a photo of Batchimeg Tuvshintugs.
Here's a photo of Cammila after her win over Nakamura: http://www.chessbase.com/news/2006/...|
|Mar-06-06|| ||jamesmaskell: Sorry, I was on a page which had her photo. For some strange reason it didnt have the right one there. Better check in future.|
|Mar-06-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Now I know she's a (chess) teacher. The look on her face, and those glasses riding low on her nose, prove it.|
|Mar-06-06|| ||Karpova: yes, and the way she taught Nakamura a lesson|
|Mar-06-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Right, forgot that part. She might have scared him with that "disapproving teacher" look over her specs.|
|Mar-06-06|| ||Karpova: Nakamura might be one of those guys falling in love with their teachers and this just affected his concentration on the game|
|Mar-06-06|| ||jamesmaskell: Nakamura made the mistake of throwing his queen out early to disrupt the queenside. It might work on the chessforums but in tournament play he needs to be more methodical about it. Otherwise he will be known for his early queen attacks and nothing else which is a shame.|
|Mar-06-06|| ||Eric Schiller: <jamesmaskell> That's ancient thinking that doesn't apply anymore. There are many, many openings involving early queen moves. Bringing outthe queen early is not necessarily bad, and is often essential. Don't forget that Camilla brought her queen out first and it was her queen who was kicked around in the opening, not Hikaru's.|
|Oct-22-06|| ||BishopBerkeley: Ms. Baginskaite teaches a free class for women on Sundays at the Mechanics Institute Chess Club of San Francisco:|
This wonderful club is right near the Montgomery Street BART station, for those familiar with that noteworthy rapid transit system. (Since parking is pretty scarce in downtown San Francisco, this is a very helpful alternative.)

|Sep-07-07|| ||Darth Lasker: Many years ago...
In "Ceskoslovensky Sach" 9/1986 there was an article about some European girls cup in Vilnius. Ildiko Madl dominated, Camilla came 2nd. The game Madl vs Baginkaite was kinda sharp: Camilla sacrificed three pawns and got dangerous attack, then she even offered her knight, but Ildiko denied, and rather sacrificed an exchange by herself. Otherwise she would have got mate. The game ended in perpetual repetition and draw. I did respect for Camilla then, she has nerves made from steel.
There was also a photo of this game, Ildiko poking at her nose and mysterious Camilla with long black hair thinking...
Several years later one night i was reading a horror novel by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu "Carmilla" and i imaginated her as Baginskaite. I got mortal tremble. :o)
