Viktorija Ni

Viktorija Ni –  Chess Gossip

It seems that Victoria had some crazy years after 2012, including separation, expatriation and other stuff.

Viktoria Ni was born in Riga (Latvia) and emigrated to the United States in 2009, when she was just 17, in order to start a life together with her boyfriend, GM Yury Shulman, who was 34 at the time. She got pregnant then and gave birth in 2010, when she was already 18. We found this video in youtube…we guess it is from the time she was pregnant….or short after it….Upps! In fact it is about 2 years later…

As we explained in our last post about chess, love and sex, Viktorija Ni seems to have had a very “varied” and complicated private life since this video was recorded in 2012. Different sources seem to indicate that she finally broke up with GM Yury Shulman during the summer of 2016 and then left the country with her son. What led her to this, if we follow information that we have gotten, is sad, strange and not completely clear. It looks like since then she has been travelling, sometimes alone and sometimes accompanied, and living in different countries, mainly in Asia and Europe.

We can only show our sympathy for the fact that she was not able to get the WGM title she speaks about in the video….she was probably too busy with other crazy emotional stuff….Bad luck? Her way of living? Who knows…

Last update: March 2018.

  1. What happened with the information that was here only one week ago? And the comments? Was the information false or what happened? Is the policy of this site to admit comments and then delete them?


  2. Hi Andy, we believe that our information was not false, but a minor was involved and our tone was probably too caustic. We finally thought that it was better to remove that part. Regarding the comments, one of them was partially ok, but another part of it was assuming things that can not be proved and could be libelous. We would have liked to keep a part of it, but we can only accept it completely or delete it completely. We deleted it. The other comment was removed because it was not appropriate. This has nothing to do with its falseness or veracity. It could be true and if somebody took the time to write it, there can be something behind it. But, true or not, it was probably crossing the line of what can be published about somebody. Thanks for following us.


  3. Viktorija was living in the Chicago area, but in January moved to New York, where she presently lives. Is she and Yuri back together or separated?


  4. Hi Robert and thanks for following us. Yes, we heard from our New York informant that Viktorija moved there in January. She left Chicago and the country with her son during the summer of 2016, when she left Mr.Shulman, and she has been living abroad for about 1.5 years, but it seems that she has visited the States a couple of times during this period. It is not clear to us whether she came back this year to the States in order to stay. If she came back with her son then maybe yes, otherwise, just one more visit.
    Regarding her relationships with Mr.Shulman and taking in account all the sad and ugly information that we have about them, it would really be very surprising if they would be together again. But if you read her biography, it is clear that you can expect almost anything possible from Viktoria Ni….
    We have modified our previous comment because we think that it is enough with this information. We could go into further detail, but we think that it is not really needed.
