Guess Who?


This photo is from 2003--two of these chess fans (this was taken at a big match/event [hint]) should be easy enough to identify, but one now looks a lot different, and the other two, well, I have no idea.

I'll post a link to the context in a couple of days, but if I posted it now it would surely ruin the suspense.

Can anyone name all of the subjects, or even four out of five?

easy:

Irina Krush, and Jenifer Shehade :)

Yes, but those are the easy ones! We'll probably need a New Yorker to provide the rest...

You've stumped this New Yorker.

i was born in New Jersey but lived in NYC for 7 years, went to college in New York and have a professional license there ('Registered Architect') and i am every bit of a new yorker as all of them!

as for the other girls, who has time for this research but the most crazed investigator!

Wahrheit said...

I will contact a source and see if we can solve the mystery.

I'm the mystery girl. I had shaved my head 6 months earlier, and while I enjoyed the bald look a lot, the growing out phase was hell-- hence the semi-desparate foray into platinum blonde. My students all started calling me Eminem....

Thanks for the ID, Liz, but do you have any idea about the two people behind you?

The best I could do was "two of them look kinda familiar".

Love how "the mystery girl" "identified" herself as "anonymous".

I didn't want to ruin anyone's guessing fun. I think the two women behind me were X-3D employees... definitely not chessplayers.

X-3D employees? Is that the most info we can get? C'mon, I need names and preferably phone numbers. Even though I live nowhere close to NY, I want to ask them out.
