Feb-07-08  slomarko: i don't know if this was posted here already but here is an interview with her:

seems that she's trying to use exactly the same defense as Kramnik tried in Elista: <I usually went away from the board when it wasn't my turn to move: I like to go out to the fresh air and also to wash my face. Moreover, I played most of my games on the stage, broadcasted, so I didn't have to sit at the board to see my position.>

Feb-23-08  Karpova: Pictures: (<The organizer of Cappelle la Grande Sylvie Templeur with Marie Boyarchenko (left) and Anna Rudolf (right)>)

Aug-10-09  wanabe2000: "Kavala 2009" 19th Open Greek Championship Group "A" WGM Anna Rudolf (HUN) 2313 placed =68th. An even score of 4.5/9..

Aug-10-09  Dredge Rivers: Maya's sister, I presume.

  GrahamClayton: Has Anna Rudolf faced accusations of cheating in any of her recent tournaments?

Have her 3 accusers made any subsuquent claims of cheating by other players since the Rudolf incident?

Nov-11-13  John Abraham: Nice pic:
Nov-12-14  cro777: Anna Rudolf following World Championship match even on her birthday.

Happy Birthday!

Nov-12-14  Rookiepawn: Perfect solution: naked chessplayers! Bet that would make chess popularity skyrocket.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: No doubt <John A> I have found the older I get the more I find redheads innately attractive.
Mar-13-16  MindBoggle: As far as I know, one of the requirements to become an IM (apart from the norms) is to achieve an elo of at least 2400. According to wiki, Anna's peak rating is 2393. If that is true, then how did she become an IM?
Mar-13-16  morfishine: <MindBoggle> One can automatically achieve IM for a specific performance bypassing the regular 3-Norm requirement. Minimum ELO is not required
Mar-13-16  sonia91: <MindBoggle> A <live> rating of 2400+ is enough, no need to be published; same thing for all other titles.

I checked now her IM title application at her FIDE pge: she had a live rating of 2401 after round 2 of a tournament she played in 2010.

Jan-22-17  Conrad93: This is the cutest chess player I've ever seen. Almost makes me want to be a GM.
Jan-22-17  Mr. V: Her interviews with players are interesting and fun. Chess 24 is lucky to have so many great personalities working for them.
Sep-29-17  ketchuplover: she appears to be absent from her game today. hope all is well.

To the tune of You Dropped a Bomb On Me-Gap Band

You were the girl of my chess world
You were the girl for me
You analyzed before my eyes
You were the best for me
But you turned me off Anna (you dropped a balm on me)
Anna, you dropped a balm on me
But you turned me off Anna (you dropped a balm on me)
Anna, you dropped a balm on me
You were my fuse, my Caissar Muse
You dropped a balm on me
You turn me off, you turn me on
You turned me loose then you turned so wrong
You dropped a balm on me
Anna, you dropped a balm on me
But you turned me off Anna (you dropped a balm on me)
Anna, you dropped a balm on me
Just like Feller the cheat
Stockfish set you free
You took me by surprise, I'd never been so high
You were my fuse, my Caissar Muse
You were my crush Anna, you were my smoke
You dropped a balm on me, hey Anna (you dropped a balm on me)
Anna, you dropped a balm on me
But you turned me off, Anna (you dropped a balm on me)
Anna, you dropped a balm on me
But you turned me off, Anna (you dropped a balm on me)
Anna, you dropped a balm on me
You dropped a balm on me, Anna (you dropped a balm on me)
Anna, you dropped a balm on me
You were hotter than Shahade hotter than Tatev
You were the girl for me
You were fresher than Pogo and left me so low
Bigger crush than Krush for me
But you turned me off, Anna (you dropped a balm on me)
Anna, you dropped a balm on me (whoa, oh, oh, Anna)
You dropped a balm on me
Anna, you dropped a balm on me...

  OhioChessFan: FWIW, I think we can safely dismiss the balm charges of 13 years ago.
