|Apr-24-03|| ||lostemperor: Here strong GM Suba just resigns in time before Zsofia sacrifice her queen. Qxh7+ Kxh7 Rh4+ and Rh8 mate. Infact Rome 1989 (8 1/2 out of 9) is a <record men performance> of young Zsofia. It was the highest tournament performance rating of men at that time, besides Fischer's 100% in the USA championship '63/'64. |
|May-14-05|| ||aw1988: In the final position, I could even play Rf3-h3 and after h5 simply sac the queen followed by Rh8#; the black pieces are horribly cramped.|
|Jul-30-05|| ||deadparrot: where is black's decisive mistake in this game? 14. ...e5 looks like the most natural move to me, to keep the position closed and avoid a white knight on f5, but does black have a chance to get any serious counterplay with the white king castled on the kingside?|
|Aug-07-05|| ||Whitehat1963: Another beautiful Polgar performance from her "Sac-of-Rome" hey day. Does Zsofia still play, or has she given it up for good?|
|Aug-14-05|| ||trumbull0042: 35... 36. Qxh7+ Kxh7 37. Rh4+ Kg8 38. Rh8#|
|Aug-14-05|| ||The beginner: <deadparrot>
17 ..Rc8 dont look to good.
After white play 18 c4 black seem to run out of space. The black pieces are mostly placed on the Queen side blocking eachothers movement. Where as white has Queen, 2x bishop, 2 pawns, and a rook ready to attack the black king position.
Question remains why dident black simply take with the queen.
Would give white the c file after Rc1, but at least it seems to offer black somekind of play.
Or maybe 17 ..d5 to open up the position some.
|Aug-18-05|| ||prinsallan: <Whitehat1963> Her last performance in a real event was Curacao 2002. Sad for the woman chess community if she has left for good.|
|Sep-25-05|| ||Gahvandure: Chessgames has Zsofia as the player, but the card above says Zsuzsa... which is it?|
|Sep-25-05|| ||chessgames.com: This is definitely Zsofia. When you see an inconsistency like that it's a sign that at some point we made a database correction PGN deemed erroneous.|
|Nov-19-06|| ||Dres1: <The Beginner> I think by move 17 black is already in a lot of trouble... the whole problem is that he cant capture e4 because after he does the f6 shot will hill him... (15... Ncxe4 16.Nxe4 ... Nxe4 17.Bxe4 ...Bxe4 18.f6! winning a piece). This is the reason black cant take e4 every time it looks like its hanging... so for the same reason, 17...d5 is bad because 18.exd5 ...Nxd5 19.Bxd5 ...Bxd5 20.f6!. And i think if 17... Qxc2 18.Rac1 and 19.Rc7 is good for white. I think black should really develop his QKnight to c6 and get rid of white's strong d4 Knight earlier on..|
|Dec-23-06|| ||al wazir: Why didn't white play the immediate 32. Re4, threatening 33. Bg7, 34. Qxh7, and 35. Rh4 ?|
|Nov-07-07|| ||sallom89: good tactical game overall , too bad she didn't play in tournaments a lot.|
|Jul-25-08|| ||PinnedPiece: 33 ? for a Wednesday puzzle? I think black is toast at that point.|
