  Penguincw: A bit late, but cognrats to Jolanta Zawadzka for winning her 3rd Polish Championship, this one with a round to spare.

Aug-30-17  spysfi: A month ago I met her with GM Dimitrios Mastrovasilis in Nafpaktos, Greece, in a big simul. If I remember correctly, Dimitris said that they are living together in Poland. Here is a family photo from her site where the Greek GM is second from left.
May-24-18  Bratek: Congratulations!
Nov-08-18  sonia91: Zawadzka on knocking Koneru Humpy out of the Women's World Championship KO (2018) : "I am still slightly shocked after the game. I was kind of ready to go home tomorrow. First of all, I have to change my ticket now. And then I will have to regroup and prepare for more fighting in the tournament."
