The Gold Coast teenager, who is described as Anna Kournikova of the chess world, made headlines worldwide earlier this year after two male chess champions, who were trying to woo her, engaged in a brawl in an Italian nightclub.

Caoili was just another chess professional until June...

Apart fom the query about "professional" how does that line up with the stunning photo of Arianne? Is it suggested that all female chess players look like that? If so, where is their chess club, please and when do they meet? :rolleyes: :cool: :P I might even start playing again :hmm:

I think we definitely need more "professional" players like Arianne in Australia:whistle: . It will give chess a huge boost.
