Feb-13-07  alshatranji: I think you should highlight some of her games, since she's tpday's player.
Apr-22-07  CaptainEvans: This lady was an accomplished clarinet playr with the Bournemouth Symphony orchestra, the Scottish orchestra and the Sadler Wells Ballet orchestra. When she won he British Ladies' Championship in 1949 she was the first player to win with a 100% record. A perfect example of the correlation that sometimes exists in being talented in both chess and music - just like Nigel Short and his guitar:-)

  Breunor: Hard to beat Sergei Prokofiev for this category!
Feb-13-10  Cibator: Mark Taimanov (chess grandmaster and concert-standard pianist) would have to be up there too.
Feb-13-10  waustad: Vassily Smyslov is another musician who became WC.
Jul-27-11  Oliveira: <Quote of the Day>

Feb-13-13  LivBlockade: Is there a connection with Feb-13?
Feb-13-13  BIDMONFA: Eileen Tranmer

TRANMER, Eileen B.

Feb-13-13  waustad: She was born 3 days after my mother. It is a surprise that she keeps coming up on Feb 13th though.

  perfidious: My first thought would normally have been that this player was the most notable with a birthday, but she lacks even that; moreover, there is Artur Yusupov, whose birthday is today.
Feb-13-13  waustad: <perfidious>Yes. However you choose to transliterate his name, he is much more notable.
May-15-18  mcgee: Does anyone have her win over Bykova in 1953 women's WC candidates tournament (just before Bykova became women's WC)? I've been looking in vain for it. This would be really appreciated. Thanks.

  GrahamClayton: Have any recordings of Elieen with either the Scottish Orchestra or Sadler Wells Orchestra been released commercially?
