  Boomie: Lovely combo by the 16 year old lass. 8...Bg7? sets the table. Every self respecting Benoni player lusts for 8...b5.
Apr-03-05  vonKrolock: In a more recent Game whith the same position been achieved whith a different order of moves Zsuzsa Polgar vs Sax, 1992 <Susan> prefered 9.h3: highly interesting Game too

Maybe the last word about the 9.Qa4 variation was not yet been proferred - all the classical examples displayed here are from the 80's

Apr-03-05  mymt: Blacks exchange sac,starting with 10. ...Bg4 came unstuck.Was it 13.Rc1 he didnt see,expecting maybe 13.gxf3 Nxc3 14.bxc3 Bxc3+? Still avery good "king stranded " attack by Susan.

  kevin86: The obvious,inescapable threat is :KNIGHT to Foxtrot SIX=checkmate!!

  tpstar: <kevin86> Bravo, Yankee Papa! Let's do the Whiskey Tango, and award the Victor an Oscar for her X-Ray vision!

Sorry Charlie, I'm on the Mike. After Romeo and Juliet did a Kilo at the Hotel India in the Lima Delta, then Alpha male Zulu played Golf in Uniform at the Quebec Sierra in November.

Is there an Echo in here? ;>D

Apr-03-05  BipolarChessorder: looks like 21. Rxd7 wins as well. Black might get in a few checks with his Queen though, and I guess 21. Qxb8 is more elegant.

  solardog: I cannot imagine playing a game like this. I know that there is theory here, but it seems so wild and unbalanced. I admire the bravery.
Apr-03-05  resty: why not play 11...Nd7 instead? am just a beginner, plase explain and let me learn.

  crafty: 11...Nbd7 12. Bxd6 Bf8 13. Bc7 Qc8 14. Qc6 Be7 15. O-O-O   (eval 3.25; depth 13 ply; 150M nodes)
Apr-04-05  resty: thanks CRAFTY!
Apr-23-05  pantlko: very good combination by zsuzaa........beauty with brain........ideal combination......
Jun-30-05  aw1988: I truly am getting sick and tired of seeing the constant gawking at all the female players.

  tpstar: <aw1988> You're absolutely right. Let's gawk at the male players for a spell.

Ooooh, Korchnoi, what hot property!

Leko's just so dreamy!

Peter Hardicsay, is he a cutie? Hard-ta-say!

j/k ;>D

Jun-30-05  underrated: I personally think this ‘brains’ that <pantlko> is referring to are not the kind I prefer in a woman. As stereotypical as it sounds I find woman smarts more attractive than the man smarts that could be more typically associated with chess. I appreciate the intellectual differences between a man and woman’s brain.

If you find this kind of smart ideal then you might be gay…

Well I guess that’s a little extreme…

Women are beautiful because of their differences from men

Jun-30-05  samvega: <bipolar>:
Actually, I don't think 21.Rxd7 quite works: 21.Rxd7 Qg4+ 22.g3 Qxh6 23.Qxb8+ Kg7 24.Qb7... there may be a perpetual in there... The beauty of 20.Re7 is that it is an interference as well as a deflection.
Aug-27-05  blackjacki2: 21. Ne4 is also winning, right?
Jun-09-06  Polak: Might have beeen played: 9. Qa4+ Bd7 10. Qb3 Bc8 with simple repetition. Not 10...Qc7, because 11. B:d6 costs an exchange. To prolong the game black should either play 9...Kf8!?, thinking about an artificial castle, or 10...Ra7!?, an strange, but useful move.

Nov-15-06  Towershield: If 20...Bf5 then for instance 21.Qb7 Nd7 22.Ne4! Bxe4 23.Qxd7 Qxd7 24.Rxd7 f5 25.Rd8+ Kf7 26.Rxh8
Dec-14-06  DHW: Thanks for that Towershield I was wondering about 20...Bf5. You are right it doesn't hold. Great combination!
Dec-12-08  Khalis: Great play by Zsuzsa Polgar.
Jan-14-09  swarmoflocusts: Ne4 is a beautiful move. Compared to the moves preceding it, it is inconceivably passive in nature, and yet it is the key to the attack. The aesthetics of such a closing are wonderful.
Jan-23-10  prensdepens: A very nice tenseful tactical gem!
Jan-23-10  prensdepens: <blackjacki2: 21. Ne4 is also winning, right?>

...Yes, you're right, 21. Ne4 wins too. It is just that, the text move- the sacrifice of the queen is more dramatic and makes our jaws drop in awe!

May-14-14  Whitehat1963: What's best play after 18...Kd7?

I'm not using a computer, but I think I see 19. Qa7+/b7+ 19...Qc7 (forced) 20. Re7+ Kxe7 21. Qxc7.

Is that best?
