Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <DCP23> No problem. <Tabi> just wanted to twit me a bit with my daily 'birthday service' when I'm posting the birthdates of 1600-2000 rated 'unknown' players.

Btw <Tabanus>, on your players page the birthdate is also missing. :D

  cro777: The 4th traditional chess match Blondes vs Brunettes in Moscow.

Maria Fominykh playing for the team of blondes:

Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: The blonde team won the April Fool’s Day blitz match in Moscow 48.5-32.5.

(Maria Fominykh (Blondes), Marina Guseva Romanko and Nadezhda Kharmunova (Brunettes) in Carlson Moscow Restaurant after the match).

  perfidious: <cro777: The blonde team won the April Fool’s Day blitz match in Moscow 48.5-32.5.>

They would.

Apr-01-14  ragtag: Didn't know that Magnus Carlson owns a restaurant in Moscow.

  cro777: <Didn't know that Magnus Carlson owns a restaurant in Moscow>

The best ideas come as jokes.

In effect, Carlson is a new restaurant in Moscow, located on the roof of a modern business centre Central City Tower, with awesome panoramic views on the Kremlin, Moscow river, and Zamoskvorechie.

Interestingly, the restaurant is named after cartoon character Carlson, created by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren. The cartoon adaptation became popularized in the Soviet Union ("Karlsson, who lives on the roof") and to this day, the adaptations are still celebrated as an integral part of the Russian cartoon industry, with Carlson being recognized as a national icon.

Apr-01-14  Refused:

Swedish movie from 1974.

For those who are not familiar with Karlsson (a real heresy in my opinion.)

Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: Maria Fominykh (who also was the chief organizer of the event) and Valentina Gunina achieved best individual results in the tournament scoring 8.5/9.
