    So tragic and sad for a beautiful person.
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    This is such horrifying news. A very exceptional lady. My condolences to the family.

Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    I feel sickened by this news. I played against her once at Somerset College years ago, and remember thinking how talented she was.

    Terrible news. I only met her briefly a few times, but she was obviously very talented - and not only as a chess player, as she was also runner-up on Dancing with the Stars.

    Arianne had a very great range of talents - see eg this interview here which mentions her work in foreign policy, consulting, also producing a newspaper/magazine and so on.

    The news was a great shock even though the accident was obviously very bad - there had been some vague encouraging signs in the news that was coming through.

    Such a shocking massive loss. Gone far too soon. Rest in peace.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    "I am so sad to learn of the untimely and tragic passing of Arianne," [John Alexander MP] said. "I remember so well meeting her and being so impressed."

    "Her passing is a great loss to her family, all who knew her, Armenia, Australia, the Phillipines, and the world of chess."

    "My special condolences go to her husband Levon Aronian. Such a sad day,"
