Hi Natalia. 
 
Very good website. Also you are a very nice lady. 
 
My daughter used to play chess with me sometimes. She had a good trick. She used to say, "Now we swap sides." She no longer plays chess. 
 
I told my grandson about his aunt's little trick and he started doing the same. 
 
I hope you come to Australia some time. You would be very welcome at our chess club. :)  
 
Best of luck in your future endeavours, 
Frank

What is the Kamasutra chess? Does everything have to be about sex? I mean, chess is one of those ennobling battle of the minds using organ above the shoulder. It is a bit depressing. Still I like the picture of you holding the stripy bar, like you are saying in a sultry mode...."And you must be THIS intelligent to play chess". Good luck and well done on your 3rd in the 2013 supers.

Congrats on your 3rd place finish in the supers. If it weren't for your 40th move against Valentina in round 7, you probably would have won the tournament. I'm impressed that you recovered from that and won your last 2 games. Best of luck.

Hi Pogo, I did want to cry because of your last defeat as you're playing very well. Thanks to God you win the second game but that one half point was a fortune! Go Natty!!]
