Mar-12-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Here's a beautiful picture of her taken at the FIDE Women's World Chess Championships:

She's the lady at the right.

Beautiful hair! What a shame we can't see the rest of her face.

Mar-12-06  jamesmaskell: Is that Kirsan making the move?
Mar-12-06  EmperorAtahualpa: <jamesmaskell> Yes, unfortunately.

Next time it will be Bessel Kok making that move though! :)

Mar-12-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Amina Mezioud currently has the 48th highest FIDE rating of her country, with a rating of 1989.

Her year of birth is 1988 so that means she's only 17 or 18!

Mar-12-06  Jim Bartle: Knock on wood.
Mar-12-06  EmperorAtahualpa: <Mezioud Amina a battu le record de celle qui a remporté les championnats des jeunes de la catégorie des moins de 10 ans jusqu’à celle des moins de 18 ans. En 2002, Amina surprend tout le monde en remportant à l’âge de 14 ans la finale de la treizième édition du Championnat d’Algérie féminin seniors entrant de plain-pied dans la cour des grands. Deux années plus tard, dans une finale palpitante contre la championne d’Afrique, Houli Asma, Mezioud Amina confirme sa suprématie en ramassant le second titre national senior de sa jeune carrière.>

C'est impressionant, ça!


Mar-12-06  jamesmaskell: 1988...a very good year...dont remember much of it though (was 4 at the time) but I hear it was eventful...
