Beauty and Brains
Who ever said chess and gorgeous sheilas don't mix? Check them out here: www.1wcbc.com. As with chess moves, you do have to look carefully for the good sort. Vote for WIM Arianne Caoili. She is presently placed at number five. Other Australians in the competition are Vaness Reid and Shannon Oliver.
After devoting much of her time to academic pursuits over the past 2 years (interrupted by what she admits as a disappointing Olympiad campaign), Arianne now plans to come back strong to chess. On the agenda are some serious training sessions later in the year. She plans to participate in the Australian Championships as well as the 113th Congress in New Zealand.
On her recent visit to Sydney, this chick showed far more dangerous moves than anything over the board. Man, can she dance!
