Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-21-04  Jim Bartle: I love how black gives up both exchanges to move the two bishops into position to dominate the white rooks and the big diagonals aiming straight at h1 and h2.
Mar-20-06  zev22407: The power of the pin.
Feb-13-07  ToTheDeath: Awesome breakthrough!
Apr-12-10  Jim Bartle: How would black respond to 26...Nd5, not taking the rook on f3?

A much better move.

Offhand it looks like:
26.Nd5 g3 27.fxg3 Rxg3 28.Nf4 Bxg2+ 29.Rxg2 Rxg2
30.Nxg2 Rxe2 31.Qxe2 Bxd4 is best.

Whites better.
The question is how much will exposed
kings matter?

Apr-13-10  Jim Bartle: Your line is what my computer program told me. But I'd be surprised if Polgar started the sacrifices without seeing a win in all lines.
Sep-24-10  sevenseaman: ..25. Rxf7 is interesting!

  FSR: This must have been a psychologically interesting game. Granda-Zuniga was the boyfriend of Susan Polgar. In her book "Queen of the Kings [sic] Game" she writes about how G-Z acted strangely toward her during her 1992 Candidates Final against Ioselani and the deleterious effect that had on her play. (Polgar led multiple times, but kept losing, allowing Ioselani to catch up, and Polgar ended up losing on a coin toss or some such, even though Ioselani had never at any time been ahead in the match.) She eventually discovered that G-Z had a wife and multiple children back in Peru! I don't know if this game occurred while G-Z was still Susan's boyfriend or after their breakup.

  perfidious: <FSR> In the summer of '92, I played a couple of events with Granda and the Polgar sisters, and while hardly an insider, somehow picked up on the scuttlebutt that these two were a couple.

Till now, though, I'd never heard the rest of that charming little story.

Aug-24-15  FairyPromotion: Hmmmm... So the greatest female player of all times, who is also an extremely aggressive tactician, faces the guy who cheated on her sister?
