Betsy Dynako's photos featured in New in Chess 2011.1

Certainly I would have beaten GM Van Wely's lovely friend WIM Sonia Zepeda in last year's Chicago Open, had the troublemaking Betsy Dynako not urged me immediately prior to the beginning of the game to pay less attention to the board and more to the objectification of my opponent.  

Dynako: "She's very pretty."

blogger: "I only look at the women that I'm not playing."

Ms. Zepeda found a couple nice shots to turn a probable loss into a smooth win.

If you can afford the steep price, the trial subscription ($48 for five issues of New in Chess) is a very good deal!
