Ended up in Israel, as with a large number of ex-Soviet players.

Tatiana Zatulovskaya will also be remembered in England because of her cameo appearance in the Hastings Challengers some 50 years ago, when for several rounds she was in contention to qualify for the next year's Premier, made a hit with her vivacity and charm, and stole the heart of a well-known English IM.

I'll give you a clue.

The IM once said something like "Hasn't anybody told this boy not to accept pawns from strange men?"

Sounds like soft pawn to me.
Ah, but I was so much older then. I'm younger than that now.

Of course, he ended up with a Czech mate instead (for a while)
