Не плохо было бы добавить поиск на сайт. Помню что читал на Вашем сайте про каменку, де не помню, а поиска нет.

Hiya, it's me again for the third time, the first time ICQ closed my browser and the second time the security code was invalid, never mind. You've got a lovely website Natalia, keep up the good work. It will take a while before I navigate through it easily and start solving puzzles, first my fingers, eyes and brain have to cooperate and then I'll start working on the Russian alphabet. Right, that's enough for now, I quickly copy and send. Bye
Comment: Thanks. Russian alphabet? The content is in English, isn't it? :) (7.6 I think)

Hi Natalia, which is your real name natalia or pogonina? 
Anyway, i am fide rated around 1900 and it seems competition become tougher and tougher. Beating 2000+ is a pain though I really wanted to beat them. Which book would you recommend me to cross 2200 in 2/3 yrs. I am in the early 20's. Thank you very much. I ask this to hear from someone professional. forum is full of begginers throwing all sorts of advice to someone even stronger than them.
Comment: Natalia is the first name, Pogonina - last name.  
Reading books alone won't take you to 2200. You have to both train & play in strong events. As the question "how do I become better in chess?" is too general to answer in a few lines, I suggest you take a look at my columns. There are all sorts of advice there.

Thanks so much for giving us so much...You're a gem. Hoping to become a chess great.Just want to know though, does learning chess at early age have an overwhelming advantage over learning it say in your teens or early twenties?
Comment: Thanks! The advantage is considerable. Just compare how quickly kids learn foreign languages, and how hard it can be for adults. Not to mention the fact that children have more spare time.

Не переживайте, Наталья! Главное, что Ваши партии (наряду с партиями Чарочкиной) были самыми острыми и интересными в Суперфинале. Желаю успехов в спорте и счастья в личной жизни!
Comment: Cпасибо!

В опросе "Кто Ваш любимый (активно выступающий) элитный шахматист?" не хватает Василия Иванчука, одного из самых ярких шахматистов современности.
Comment: Да, опрос старый и составлялся на основании топ-10 шахматистов на тот момент. Сейчас бы надо обнулить результаты и стартовать заново :)

Здравствуйте Наталья!Впервые на вашем сайте и мне понравилось.Красочно все.Желательно чтобы вы добавляли комментарии ваших игр,описали свои размышления и переживания во время хода в партии.Меня больше всего интересует психологическая подоплека выбора дебюта,защиты или хода против конкретного противника.Заранее спасибо.С наилучшими пожеланиями...
Comment: Максат, спасибо за отзыв! Статьи на эти темы на сайте уже публиковались, будут и новые. ;-)
