Chess Birthdays in April

Dear all!

April is a wonderful spring month and so I would like to congratulate the wonderful women's chess players who were born this month.

3 women's world chess champions were born in April:

8th women's world chess champion Zsuzsa (Susan) Polgár was born on April 19, 1969.

10th women's world chess champion Antoaneta Stefanova was also born on April 19 but 10 years later, in 1979

12th women's world chess champion - me ;) Alexandra Kosteniuk was born on April 23, 1984.

The same birthday - April 23 - as me is shared by Pia Cramling (born on April 23, 1963 in Stockholm, Sweden) and Lela Javakhishvili who was also born on April 23, 1984.

Two strong russian chess players Tatiana Kosintseva (born April 11, 1986 in Arkhangelsk) and Ekaterina Kovalevskaya (born April 17, 1974) also celebrated their birthdays this month.

The chinese player Zhao Xue was also born in April (born April 6, 1985 in Jinan, Shandong).

    Oh, thank you for advice - now I know my child will need to get his/her origins in July, so it will be born in April and then become a Chess Champion :)
