I am a huge fan of yours...and looking forward to the day when a woman becomes the World Chess Champion...what a great day that would be...of all the best players in History, who do you like most, and why?
Comment: Thanks, that would have been great indeed! 
Judging by the level of play and influence on modern chess, I think it's Kasparov.

Добрый день, Наталия! 
Моей дочери 9 лет, заниматься шахматами стала с 6 лет. Первый разряд получила в 8 лет. Чемпионка Латвии 2009 года. Много знает и умеет, но нет спортивного характера. Возможно ли воспитание характера спортивного, или это врожденное и коррекции не подлежит. Спасибо
Comment: Еще как возможно! Чемпионами не рождаются, ими становятся по ходу жизни. Хотя, конечно, работа предстоит непростая.

Dear Natalija, I've just browsed to see pictures of you. I saw you and Benggala Tiger. You like tiger ? Me, too. You can see my profile at (wOnQkitO). At now, I join community trying to beat you. Is it true if we make #28. ... Be7 ? Why ? Spacibo.
Comment: Cats are great, yeah! Don't think 28...Be7 poses any problems for White though :P

May I ask a stupid question?How do Grandmasters practice their tactics? Do they use books that they repeatedly go over, or use special software or go on tactics training sites?
Comment: Books (it's hard to find good ones actually) + special software (e.g. CT-ART). Solving tactics online isn't popular since most servers offer superficial training software.

Наташа, посоветуйте. У меня подруга КМС говорит, что если во время турнира заниматься сексом, то из-за этого снижается спортивный результат. я не согласен. Кто прав, а кто нет? Чтобы ее переубедить нужно Ваше авторитетное мнение.
Comment: Думаю, это индивидуально. Но, в среднем, женщинам полезно заниматься сексом во время турниров, а мужчины слишком много энергии затрачивают, может на партию не хватить. :-)
