some words from male grandmasters, say thngs like....'how could i lose to such idiot' aim is to crush my oponents mind and spirit...lmao, this is wot they thnk...this is their motivation...i can neva imagine a woman to say or thnk such words, thats why they should play seperate...i believe a woman play chess for a total diffrent reason...a kind reason...and the beauty would get lost if played with anotha mindset...its jst a view, not an opinion, think it, write it, read it.

there is more male criminals than female... more malechessfans than womanchessfans. Its a brutal game...and i thnk that men always more brutal than woman, but some woman are stronger than other, they jst not as dirty as men-if you get wot im saying:) my reply to why woman and men should play seperate...

It was your article "Winning with a Piece Down" I was refering to (with the game you included). I then was reading your article on "women in Chess" about women vs men and I could see connections between chess and Tai-Chi. Your's truly - Edo-San.

I was looking at your game just posted in You made a notation about "harmonious" pieces and I thought that was well said. I have never heard a man player say that. I like your playing style very much. I'm a man (and just play for fun) but I think your comment was right to the point. I have been studying Tai-Chi for many years now and I found that some of my favorite teachers were women - because they really have to make use of Tai-Chi principles - since they are small and not muscular. Many men who study Tai-Chi are also small and not muscular. I found the women's style so "harmonious" and yet deadly. Anyway, just wanted to share that with you. Keep up the great work !
Comment: Thanks, Edo-San! I guess you are referring to my article "Winning when a piece down", or is it a game of mine?

Thanks for a wonderful page, i just cant help wondering about the picture on top.. Has a leg been removed? As beautiful as you are im sure the other leg won't ruin anything :)
Comment: Good point, Dr Oyvind, but boots on the rock would have looked a bit unnatural.Besides, you can always visit the Gallery. :-)

Извините что задаю глупый вопрос, но надеюсь кто нибудь ответит :grin, а то у кого не спрашиваю никто не знает... Я видел опрос "Ваше отношение к удвоению К (с 10 до 20, с 15 до 30) ? " Вот теперь вопрос: это удвоение уже действует или это только ещё запланированно ФИДЕ? Лично мне это удвоение нравится, можно будет быстрее набить рейтинг, но с другой стороны можно быстро и растерять. И что теперь чаще будет обновляться рейтинг тоже хорошо, более честно.
Comment: Вопрос о повышении К временно отложен:
