Hi Natalia, 
 
You seem to be a very modest and unassuming person. I have read many of your articles at chess.com and found them very interesting. I wish you all the best and hope one day you will be world champion.  
 
Bye.
Comment: Thanks a lot & all the best to you too!

I've been playing in local chess tournaments for more than forty years. Computers have changed the game dramatically, because kids now become much stronger much faster than in the old days.

Максимов АндрейSigned on: Fri Aug 27 00:44:55 2010
Наталья, здравствуйте. Хочу задать Вам два жизненных вопроса. 1) Скажите, как Вы относитесь к поклонникам Вашего не шахматного таланта, а женского обаяния? Ведь, наверняка, для Вас не секрет, что большинство воздыхателей которые пишут Вам восхищенны речи в Вас влюблены, а в шахматном плане почти дилетанты. 2) Чувствуете ли Вы вину, за страдания людей, которым Вы разбили сердце? Ведь после того, как Вы вышли замуж у некоторых начались необратимые последствия. Например Юрий Волков тронулся умом, есть и еще примеры. Как Вы считаете, должна ли женщина нести ответственность за такие последствия? 
 
Заранее спасибо за ответы.
Comment: Андрей, отношусь к поклонникам хорошо, если они ведут себя адекватно. :) Люди сами несут ответственность за свои чувства, о какой вине тут можно говорить?

Hi Natalia, 
 
I have been playing chess since I was 5 years old. I used to compete during my teens by travelling around N.S.W and playing at various chess clubs and tournaments in the 70's. The best result I achieved was two consecutive draws against the current N.S.W chess champion at the time. Regrettably, I gave up chess at about an age of 18 years due to personal relationships. I restarted playing chess via correspondence on some chess sites about 5 years ago at an age of 42. I noticed that I certainly lost a lot of edge in my play but over the last 5 years have managed to re-establish some form that resembled my strength from my youth. I feel that a lot of players now maybe using chess software to assist their games and I am at a stage where it is frustrating me that I have to use some anti-computer techniques. This is now becoming less effective with stronger software and I am now considering giving up playing this great game because I am sick of facing unknown faces that all seem to play at grand master level. What are views on this? By the way, my favourite players of all time were Rubinstein and Karpov; in fact I have tried to model my game on Karpov since my youth. I have found that not only was he the greatest chess player in my mind but a great human being as well. Anyway, I would not mind a reply from you when you have the time regarding this message and your overall views on the game today. It is great to see so many strong women players that promote the game of chess with class. 
 
Kind regards Johnny.
Comment: Hi Johnny, that indeed can be irritating. You may check out Chess.com though for correspondence chess. The prevailing majority of the people seem to be playing fair there. Actually, advanced chess also has its advantages, but I understand that not everyone is interested in it. 
As to "views on the game today" - nowadays it's more competitive, challenging and professional. One can't just rely on inspiration and talent to create great games, thorough preparation is required.

Wonderful website! I was captured by your article or Chess as a sexual game. I find playing against women to be quite stimulating mentually, which can lead to physical arousal. 
Looking forward to your upcoming book "Chess Kamasutra."
