Susan Lalic was listed under the Wikipedia:CHESS/Most Wanted section so I thought that I'd put one together. If I'm wrong, and it wasn't needed, let me know. TilonRespir (talk) 21:06, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Notability[edit]

The Notability criteria for athletes claims that an athlete is notable if they meet any of the following criteria:

  1. People who have competed at the fully professional level of a sport, or a competition of equivalent standing in a non-league sport such as swimming, golf or tennis.[1]
  2. People who have competed at the highest amateur level of a sport, usually considered to mean the Olympic Games or World Championships.

I feel that Lalic, having won the British Women's Chess Championship 5 times, more than meets the above criteria. Particularly since most of the other winners of the same championship have pages with no apparent further merit - see Talk:Cathy Warwick. However, being new to Wikipedia editing I'll wait for someone else to remove the notability tag. TilonRespir (talk) 07:09, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

My opinion is to keep the article. Bubba73 (You talkin' to me?), 21:41, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
    • ^ Participation in and, in most cases, winning individual tournaments, except the most prestigious events, does not make non-athletic competitors notable. This includes, but is not limited to, poker, bridge, chess, Magic:The Gathering, Starcraft, etc.
