Premium Chessgames Member << The Ajedrez UNAM Quadrangular tournament took place alongside the Ibero-American tournament. This was part of a huge chess festival which had Kasparov and Karpov giving simuls, and there were in addition a number of seminars and exhibitions. Judit Polgar won the whole event. >> The Week in Chess (

We're working on getting the simul games online now.

  beenthere240: He's a mexican grandmaster -- check him out.

  messachess: Wow! Judit! Was this classical time control?
Premium Chessgames Member
  messachess: Couldn't have been.

  juan31: fue un evento donde la universidad pública más importante del país presto una gran importancia al ajedrez, incluso hubo un homenaje a R.J. Fischer como un gran campeon y genio del ajedrez.

  Phony Benoni: <messachess> The link indicates the time control was 10 minutes + 5 seconds per move. That would mean about 13-14 minutes per player for an average game.
Nov-30-10  jakaiden: She knocked them out with those knockers!!
Nov-30-10  jakaiden: <beenthere240: He's a mexican grandmaster -- check him out.> Why would I check him out? The guy can't win one game.

  beenthere240: Hoyos is a grandmaster with a 2570 rating, the top rated player in Mexico, and currently the national champion. Ivanchuk only won 1 game, and he's no slouch. As PB points out it was rapid chess and anything could happen. I'm sure Polgar isn't going to play a KG at classical time control.

The University can be proud of sponsoring this event.

  juan31: Beenthere 240: Gracias por su comentario, así es, a pesar de las carencias de nuestro país, el evento organizado por la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, fue un gran esfuerzo que reconoció la importancia que el ajedrez puede llegar a tener en la educación formal del individuo ( el fin del evento fue que a nivel medio se incluya al ajedrez como un taller, y a nivel universitario como materia optativa en todas las carreras). Además del reconocimiento que se hizo de Robert James Fischer como uno de los grandes Maestros del Ajedrez.

  SatelliteDan: Judit Polgar is not only one of the best chess players ever, but see also has that "Mona Lisa" smerk. In a way "priceless", thanks Judit for being part of the chess world.
Dec-01-10  MindCtrol9: Judit Polgar:You are the greatest woman chess player of all times,and everyone in the chess world is very proud of you for your talent,and others aspects that make you like no other.I do wish for you the success in everything you do.
Dec-02-10  Bilongo: Juan 31: This is forum in English, even though i´m not a native speaker, I think it does not make much sense to speak in Spanish here. It would be nice if you could write your comments in English. También sería bueno para que practicase su inglés hehe.

By the way, stunning performance by Judith Polgar, is nice to see somebody playing this old and risky openings.

  juan31: Bilongo :
I don’t thing that to write in Spanish is a disrespect, I read more and less , but to write in English …… is not my strong point, if Chessgames have a rule about this I apologies . but I believe is a international site
Dec-03-10  turbo231: I just wish she would play in the Women World Championship. I think she is making a mistake by not playing in it a least one time. What would it hurt?
Dec-03-10  Bilongo: I don´t think there is a rule about writing in English, but you have to consider that is much easier for everybody to use a common language. Almost everybody can understand English, while very few can understand Spanish. Therefore, if you write in Spanish most people will not understand your comments. Is just a matter of getting used to the language, now that I live abroad I can tell you that is very nice to have a common language. (I can´t imagine myself with my friends here trying to speak in German, polish or Chinese haha) De cualquier forma un saludo amigo.
Dec-03-10  Betochon: jakaiden: <beenthere240: He's a mexican grandmaster -- check him out.> Why would I check him out? The guy can't win one game.

Well because he is a grandmaster and you are not. and you can still learn something from him

Dec-03-10  Caissanist: Personally, I enjoyed juan31's Spanish postings, there would inevitably have been things lost in translation.
Dec-07-10  Chessforeva: Hei, Bilongo! I dissagree. I think there should be good practice of small "translate button" near the foreign comment in blogs these days. I's just technically possible. Sometimes people just like to express emotions in their native language. Of course, if it's not like "i <3 u2 coz u sux" or something.
