[what is this?]

Born in Baku, WIM Dina Kagramanov was the 2009 Canadian Women's Zonal Champion (inviting her to the Women's World Chess Championship (2010) but losing to Nana Dzagnidze in her 1st match) and a graduate of York University. Her sister is Dalia Kagramanov. She has represented Canada at the Women's Olympiad (2008) and Olympiad, women (2002) as high as 2nd board and attended the Chess Olympiad (Women) (2010) (5 wins and a draw were earned for a total of 5.5 in 9 games played to give her a (combined) Olympiads score of 18.5 points in 30 played games) at the same board as 2008.

Actress Carina Nel played her role which was based off of the story of Phiona Mutesi in the Disney release Queen of Katwe (5).

Apr-24-04  ruylopez900: She is a Canadian WGM, she just played in the Canadian Women's Zonal. check out for more information.
Apr-24-04  Bitzovich: I am acquainted to her, Dina Kagramanov is not a WGM yet (although she sure has potential). Her rating is 2005 (recent update), she is 5th highest rated woman in Canada.
Apr-24-04  ruylopez900: Isn't she? Oh, maybe I read the wrong profile then. Do you live in Quebec or Ontario? You seem to know all the big faces in Canadian chess =D.
