|Jan-11-05|| ||percyblakeney: The 11th woman with the GM title, after Nona Gaprindashvili, Maia Chiburdanidze, Judit Polgar, Xie Jun, Zsuzsa Polgar, Pia Cramling, Zhu Chen, Antoaneta Stefanova, Humpy Koneru and Alexandra Kosteniuk. |
|Jul-04-05|| ||Caissanist: Ordinarily you have to achieve a minimum rating of 2500 to gain the GM title, but her all time high appears to be in the mid 2400s. Does anyone know how she managed to get the title?|
|Jul-04-05|| ||lostemperor: She got her title by becoming shared first in the European championship 2004 and thereby scoring 2600+ performance rating. But still it is exceptional to get the title by just one fine tournament result because of a new regulation. |
She is from China but is Dutch now and live in the Netherlands. a few years ago when a Dutch team needed a player I contacted her in Holland and arranged her to play there.
|Jul-04-05|| ||Montreal1666: What is the link that explains are new
regulations for becoming a GM and WGM?
|Jul-04-05|| ||jamesmaskell: Women can become a male title holders...is it possible for men to do the opposite? I'd rather like to have a women's title. That would be a funny ice breaker!|
|Jul-30-05|| ||OJC: GM Zhaoqin Peng had a disappointing day. She lost to
Betul Cemre Yildiz (rated 2155) in the european team championships. I don't think her performace rating will be 2600+ this year.|
|Mar-15-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Zhaoqin Peng
|Jun-30-06|| ||WarmasterKron: Zhaoqin Peng has won the Dutch women's championship with an excellent 8.5/9!|
|Jun-30-06|| ||Open Defence: even after the Iron Curtain fell it seems Chess is still a means to get to the West.....|
|Jun-30-07|| ||Open Defence: <Karpova> I think <WarmasterKron's> post was about the previous years competition... unless he could forecast the result a year in advance.. i still maybe wrong...|
|Jun-30-07|| ||Karpova: Peng won the Dutch women's championship for the ninth time in a row with a great 8/9!|
|Jun-30-07|| ||nescio: <Karpova> It was indeed her 9th title, but only(!) her 8th in succession:|
|Jun-30-07|| ||achieve: http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...
Very nice pictures in there..
If you scroll almost to the bottom there is a picture of <Arlette van Weersel>.. The resemblance to a famous A-list actress is irry..
|Jun-30-07|| ||Karpova: <nescio>
Let's see if Peng can beat Fenny Heemskerk 's record (she sadly passed away this month)
|Jun-30-07|| ||keypusher: <achieve> Ray Liotta? I don't know, is he really A-list?|
|Nov-07-07|| ||alexapple: Congratulations on Peng Zhaoqin's GREAT performance in 2007 European Team Chess Championships!|
|Dec-23-09|| ||technical draw: Thanks for that link <achieve>. Seeing that 96 year old player strolling to the board is inspiring.|
|Aug-14-12|| ||technical draw: Walter Browne was just a mere Mr. Six Times. This lady is an awesome Ms. Twelve Times!|
|Jul-06-14|| ||WannaBe: Both the bio and picture need updating, but she looks very formidable OTB, by the Google images.|
|Jul-17-14|| ||Caissanist: I updated the bio to mention that her string of Dutch Women's Championships ended several years ago. She seems to be jinxed in that event now; although she is still by far the highest rated woman in the Netherlands, she has come up short three years in a row in the championship.|
