Born Loser - or how I learned Victoria's Secret
February 28, 2004
Sometimes I feel like such a loser.
Because of a discussion recently, I have been seeking information on the US Women's Chamionships.
That sounds like an easy subject to research, doesn't it?

There's an overwhelming dearth of information of the subject and despite hours of wandering through the desert of the web, I've come up dry and arid. But though I may be a loser, I'm a persistant one. So, more on the US Women's Championships later.
In my futile search, serendipitously, I did come up with something interesting ... and the reason I feel like such a loser :
Her brother, Victor, was the 1993, 1994 New York State Junior High School Chess Champion, the 1996 New York State High School Chess Champion, and the 1999 New York State High School Quick Chess Champion.
