Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-15-06  pawntificator: Wow! Seven time Bulgarian Women's champion. Either she is really good, or else there aren't any other real competitors in Bulgaria for the women's team. And only two games in here, one a loss and the other a draw.

And her husband gets beat in the daily puzzle today.

Dec-03-06  Karpova: Beth Cassidy:
<I suppose the most aggravating thing women chess-players have to contend with is the superior male attitude. One of the masters coming out of the adjournment room was overheard to say that he could not bear to watch the games any longer — the play made him quite ill and completely upset his nervous system. Poor fellow! Admittedly he was up till four in the morning analysing a long drawn out but clear-cut win for a player who succeeded in losing in five minutes flat. Then there was the case of Antonia Ivanova. Her husband, the Bulgarian master Bobotsov, insisted that she played under her maiden name so she would not harm his reputation ... this in the face of the fact that whilst Ivanova is an international master he is merely a Bulgarian one.>

1st Women's Chess Olympiad: Emmen 1957

Dec-03-06  Open Defence: <Seven time Bulgarian Women's champion> and only 2 games... we need to upload more?
Dec-03-06  Karpova: More games are always good but do you know where to find them?
Dec-03-06  Open Defence: well i have a few ideas.. just wondering if there is any such thing as copyright issues with chessgames.. only analyses are copy righted correct ?
Dec-03-06  Karpova: Sure, there's no copyright for the raw chessmoves (though Sveshnikov would like to change that).
