  benveniste: Did anyone analyze 30 ... Nxf3!? for Black?
Mar-10-05  aw1988: Nxf3 does not work. White's pieces are very capable of stopping the pawns.
Mar-10-05  beatgiant: <benveniste: Did anyone analyze 30 ... Nxf3!? for Black?> Good try. But if Black advances the passers, White can trade her bishop for them and break through the kingside.

For example, 30...Nxf3 31. gxf3 Qxh3 32. Nb2 Qc8 33. Nc4 h3 34. Re2 h2?! 35. Bxh2 gxh2 36. Rxh2 Kf7 37. Rh7 Rh8 38. Qh2 Rxh7 39. Qxh7 Qh8 40. Qf5+ Ke7 41. Qe6+ Kd8 42. Nxd6! etc. with a strong attack.

If Black doesn't advance the passers, I think White can continue attacking the queenside similar to the game, although I don't have a concrete line at the moment.

Apr-18-05  skyman: she played well for 11yold, better than i anyway..
what does kibizer mean? go.
May-16-05  halcyonteam: terribly good she is
Jan-07-06  blingice: Zoltan was definetely winning: he had 4 passed pawns, a pawn chain that was crushing Polgar, and he put his q in the wrong square (bad move #1) and then he took the ♗ sacrifice rather than moving ♘a6 (badmove #2)
Jan-07-06  notsodeepthought: <blingice> After 35 ... Na6 the queen is lost anyway (36 N:d6).
Jan-07-06  blingice: If he hadn't taken the ♗ sac though, the ♘ wouldn't be able to go on the square. Or do you mean something else?
Jan-07-06  notsodeepthought: The knight could go to d6, because after 35 Bb6 Na6 36 N:d6, the c7 pawn cannot take the knight (because it's pinned by the bishop in b6), so the queen is trapped.
Jan-08-06  blingice: So the REAL blunder is 34..♔d8...
Jan-09-06  CapablancaFan: <psalcido> I agree 100%. Closing the kingside was fatal especially since Zoltan was weak on the queenside. He probably was worried that his king would be exposed, but in reality his position could have been defended and with 2 ADVANCED passed pawns to worry about Susan's hands would have been full. <: After 26. h3, it seems to me that the ultimate mistake was not opening up the Kingside. I understand that the King IS over there, but still, that's where all of blacks pieces were. As soon as the Kingside was closed, with 26. ... g3, black had to make some vague attempt at holding a pressured and open Queenside, where all of whites pieces were. I think that this is blacks ultimate error.

Unfortunately, with two connected white rooks on row 1, white would have quickly acted to take over the g-file, but it was still blacks best possible chance, I think.>

Apr-16-06  IMDONE4: That's one heck of a pawn chain. Great sac by Polgar.

  Jim Bartle: No kidding. Very elegant. To see Judit on the wrong side of a pawn chain, ID4, take a look at Polgar-Bacrot 1999 (the one with 75 moves), "The Immortal Wedge" game.
Sep-25-06  aazqua: Pretty atrocious play by black. Wall yourself in and then get pummled. Duh.
May-26-07  gBizzle: very nice

  notyetagm: Beautiful <PETITE COMBINAISON> by Polgar at the end, winning ♕ for ♖♗ by combining the themes of <RELOADER> (on b6-square) and <TRAPPED PIECES> (Black c8-queen had no safe square).
Jun-11-07  sanyas: No question which classic game inspired her here...

Jun-13-07  sanyas: Where is the wedge in that game? It's a chain, not a wedge.
Jun-13-07  sanyas: Not a chain either, a line.
