May-12-13  EvanTheTerrible: Karjakin's ex-wife.
May-12-13  dx9293: No, Karjakin is (was?) married to Kateryna Dolzhikova.

  cro777: <EvanTheTerrible: Karjakin's ex-wife.>

Karjakin was married to the silver medalist from the World Mind Sports games WGM Kateryna Dolzhikova from Ukraine. They have been divorced some time ago.

May-12-13  dx9293: Sad to hear about Karjakin's divorce. His wife was hot!

Anyway, Spassky said he and his first wife were like opposite color bishops, and when he got divorced from her he was able to become World Champion.

May-12-13  Interbond: Are Olga and Kateryna sisters?

Korneev accused her of cheating. In his analysis of the game, he particularly placed emphasis on Dolzhikova's move 20 as a typical computer move. Who would play such a move?

Dolzhikova played here 20...Nc7.

<Interbond> They are not sisters.

Nov-07-13  RedShield: She's married to IM Timofey Galinsky.
Nov-07-13  tjipa: <cro777> Without looking at this game with an engine, 20...Nc7 to me looks like a perfectly normal, positional, profilactic move. Say, maybe she wants to avoid her pawn appearing on d5, thus blocking the d file, or c2-c4 with a tempo (maybe possible at some point) with prospects of some counterplay for white. A club player like me would of course first look at developing my bishop and planning kingside attack, but positional squeezing with 2 pawns up seem OK as well!
Nov-07-13  waustad: She's listed as first board for the Norwegians at the European Team Chess Championships.
