Left to right: Anna Cramling-Bellon, Pia Cramling, Weronica Socko

Sitting at the board in the picture is little Anna Cramling-Bellon, daughter of GM Juan Manuel Bellon and GM Pia Cramling (who is also in the photo). Anna made her international competition debut on 29 January here in Gibraltar. On the right, having some fun with Pia Cramling is Weronica Socko, daughter of GM Bartosz Socko and GM Monika Socko. All four parents hold the full GM title. How many other children can boast two GM parents? Other than Weronica’s siblings that is. We can think of maybe one more double GM husband and wife with children but haven’t thought about it too deeply yet. Maybe there are more – can you think of any?

Here is the list of husband and wife GM pairs off the top of my head:

GM Xie Jun – GM Wu Shaobin
GM Zhu Chen – GM Mohamad Al-Modiahki
GM Monika Socko – GM Bartosz Socko
GM Pia Cramling – GM Juan Manuel Bellon

Are there more?
