Natalia, why you are not palying in Women's World Team Chess Championship? You would be a great help for the Russian Team.
Comment: Thanks, I can't play there due to family affairs.

It is quite touching to have a top-ranked chess player be so friendly, open, warm, and engaging. I agree you are quite beautiful, and I am sure that you will succeed in whatever you desire. I look forward to reading your sex/chess book. What a fantastic idea!
Comment: Thanks for your kind and inspirational words, Jeremy!

Дорогая Наталья ! 
Можна ли спросить.Были-ли 
опубликованны шахматные задачи Посвящённые Вам ?
Comment: Уважаемый Иван, 
Спасибо за партию (мы её обязательно опубликуем)! Задач мне не посвящали, молодые люди нынче без фантазии: цветы, стихи, мягкие игрушки... А интересно было бы хорошую композицию имени себя решить :-)

Any advice for an intermediate player playing white on the Ruy Lopez or black playing the Sicilian Dragon? I always get stuck after the 7th or 8th moves. Any advice on strategy in these situations would be greatly appreciated. 
Thank you. 
Comment: These openings are so complicated that it's impossible to give an advice one paragraph long. You can just find books on these openings, study some remarkable games & opening variations using chess databases (e.g. Chessbase). Pay more attention to the ideas and schemes, not the exact moves.
