|Sep-12-03|| ||Tigran Petrosian: nice exchange sac |
|Sep-12-03|| ||Brian Watson: yeah, pretty amazing, if Polgar in fact was baiting black with 23.f4.|
What follows 22...Nxe5? I'm thinking 22...Nxe5 23.Qf6 Nxd3+ cxd3, and white is still down a pawn, but with the last knight off the board black has extremely weak black squares.
|Sep-13-03|| ||xu fei: <Brian Watson> 22...Nxe5 23.Qf6 Nxd3+ 24.cxd3 Rf8 25.Bb4 Rh8 26.Rxf7+-. Black loses either the exchange or two pawns. You were right, black loses due to weak dark squares. |
|Nov-11-04|| ||shr0pshire: 16. g4! starts a flurry of tactical opportunities for white. I think this may be one of Polgar's best games in terms of tactics. |
|Jun-30-05|| ||samvega: yup, great stuff. I liked the moving back and forth of the dark bishop in the opening.|
|Jun-30-05|| ||Boomie: 22...xe5 seems fine for black.
22... xe5 23. f6 xd3+ 24. cxd3 d8 25. e5 c8
It's hard to see how white will win from this position.
|Jun-30-05|| ||samvega: <Boomie> yes I was wondering about 24..Rf8 in xu fei's line, which is clearly a wasted move...
In your line, if 25.Rxf7 Qxf6 26.Rxf6, is that equal, or does white have a little advantage?|
|Jun-30-05|| ||Boomie: <samvega> 25. xf7 also seems to lead to an even game. However after 26...d7, there are many lines and Uncle Fritz may be unreliable in such end game positions at this depth.|
25. xf7 xf6 26. xf6 d7 27. c3 hf8 28. b1 b6= (0.01) D=14
|Sep-03-05|| ||Brian Watson: I think this was the first Polgar game I ever saw, in some chess column I guess.|
|Oct-10-09|| ||whiteshark: This gem has been played for the annual German TV chess show <Schach dem Gro▀meister>. 1 hour for each player for the full game. Fun to watch Vlastimil Hort and Helmut Pfleger as regular funny commentators.|
|Oct-10-09|| ||HeMateMe: Nice the way she cut off the black escape route, giving up material along the way, but getting it all back. Nothing more painful than not being able to castle.|
