Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-29-05  Karpova: She's Germany's top chessplayer, followed by Elisabeth Paehtz
Aug-07-06  nummerzwei: You mean the female players, of course! Germany´s top chessplayer at all is Arkadi Naiditsch, followed by Artur Yusupov and Robert Huebner.
Oct-25-06  Karpova: yes, female chessplayers, of course.
Strong male chessplayers are Naiditch, Yusupov, Dautov, Lutz, Luther, Khenkin and Graf (former Nenashev).
Oct-19-07  Karpova: Birthday: 11-Sept-1971 in Mestia (Georgia)
Learned chess at the age of 5
Studied journalism in Tiflis (was awarded a diploma)
Moved to Germany in 1993, married and gave birth to two children. Became a WGM in 1990 and an IM in 1997
Hobbies: Music and reading
Jul-11-08  nummerzwei: I think in her biography it should be "She studied journalism...".

"Sie" is the German female personal pronoun, of course.

Dec-29-12  waustad: She's now leading in the Erfurter Frauen-GMturnier with 6/8, although she lost in the first round to Melanie Ohme. The later started off very well but is now even with 4/8.
