Jan-28-04  Whitehat1963: <Dick Brain> Perhaps, but how many other hot-looking chess players do you know who are also good enough to be on this web site?
Mar-07-04  Taidanii:
Mar-24-04  ConLaMismaMano: hot, but i prefer rybenko
Mar-24-04  drukenknight: Average looking? In a sense, she's not spectacular at first glance, but if you look at her long enuf you see how chiseled her chin is; her hair is great, her skin tone is great, she looks really fit.

It's like saying Lee Lee Sobieski or Joanne Pacula are average looking, yeah based on a photo sort of...

Apr-15-04  TrueFiendish: Dick Brain: if you think she is average-looking, no offence but it's you that needs to see more of the world. True beauty, IMO, is not necessarily the exclusive domain of Paris catwalks; on the contrary.
Apr-15-04  tayfunayata: If she plays against guys, she seems like better advantage... None of guys can concentrate on the board...
Apr-15-04  Bobsterman3000: If you go to Google images they have several more photos for Regina:

Just search for "Regina Pokorna photos"

Apr-15-04  TrueFiendish: Bobsterman: I'll do that, as the photo above does her little justice, a fact which perhaps Dick Brain should take into account.
Apr-15-04  Bobsterman3000: Average looking? umm yeah.

I bet if she walked by we'd have to support Mr. Brain's knees with a few thousand pawns...

Apr-15-04  TrueFiendish: I'm convinced he was misled by the less than ideal photo above. He can yet redeem himself. :-)
May-25-06  Commisar: I find Ana Matnadze prettier...just take a look at her photos on google, she is gorgeous!!
May-25-06  Commisar: SickedChess-I had the honour to meet her pesonally back in november and she looked like this: So if you were expecting to see the girl you post from the chessbase page(some of those photos are also cute though),you would definitely pass the opportunity of meeting her :) By the way she plays on ICC under the nick Sarakhatkhan (quite often online) and is a very strong player as you can see And she is hugely sympathetic when you get familiar with her in person. She is unbelieveable.Period
Jan-23-07  Larsker: <Commisar: I find Ana Matnadze prettier.>

Yes, you do. You have posted four times on this site - and all posts were about how amazing Ana Matnadze is looking.

Jan-23-07  dehanne: <Yes, you do. You have posted four times on this site - and all posts were about how amazing Ana Matnadze is looking.> Lol.
Jun-16-07  Karpova: She won the <Electric Woman Stars Brainy Beauties> in Jakarta:

There are also nice pictures.

Nov-26-07  Udit Narayan: Thanks for pics <Karpova>

Nice result in a unique event.....

  WannaBe: I did not find an exact match for Anastasia Karlovic in the database here, but she looks lovely in those pictures.

  whiteshark: Regina Pokorna @ Dresden 2008:
Jun-30-15  waustad: She now has another name attached and has just transferred to the Austrian federation. Her full name now is Regina Theissl Pokorna and she is now the second highest rated woman playing for Austria.
Aug-15-15  waustad: She's playing in the Vienna Open starting tomorrow. For those interested, top boards games will be broadcast along with a webcam, assuming that it is like previous years. See: This may be her first tournament with AUT after her name.
Nov-06-15  waustad: She's playing top board for Pamhagen today in the Austrian FBL. The hoped for matchup between Elizabeth Paehtz and Eva Moser didn't materialize, but Pamhagen should win this matchup handily. Also it is slightly disappointing that the games aren't on live. Hopefully they will be available later. DGT boards are expensive and the FBL is playing concurrently with the Austrian Bundesliga, so they probably don't have enough to show both.

Nov-06-15  waustad: As a follow up on that last post, she suffered an unexpected loss against Venla Lymysalo (1714). Here is a photo:
