Jun-28-10  fanofchess82: A very good attack by Polgar. The knight moves are very good. The exchanges to open the queen side for an attack is captivating. A very good game indeed

  al wazir: 35. Bxd3 Rxd3 36. e4 would have been better for white. If 36...Nxe4, then 37. Qxe4. At least it doesn't lose a piece.

  Once: 1-2-3-4
Walking like a man, hitting like a hammer
She's a juvenile scam, never was a quitter
Tasty like a raindrop, she's got the look
Heavenly bound cos heaven's got a number
When she's spinning me around, kissing is a colour
Her loving is a wild dog, she's got the look

She's got the look (she's got the look)
She's got the look (she's got the look)
What in the world can make a brown-eyed girl turn blue When everything I'll ever do I'll do for you
And I go la la la la la
She's got the look

Fire in the ice, naked to the T-bone
Is a lover's disguise, banging on the head drum
Shaking like a mad bull, she's got the look
Swaying to the band, moving like a hammer
She's a miracle man, loving is the ocean
Kissing is the wet sand, she's got the look

She's got the look (she's got the look)
She's got the look (she's got the look)
What in the world can make a brown-eyed girl turn blue When everything I'll ever do I'll do for you
And I go la la la la la
She's got the look

Walking like a man, hitting like a hammer
She's a juvenile scam, never was a quitter
Tasty like a raindrop, she's got the look
And she goes....

Na na na na na......
She's got the look

  HeMateMe: Not to discount Judit's nice tactics, but I think van Wely just stunk it up. In the middlegame, with a mostly symetrical pawn structure, 5 pawns all on one side of the board, it really should be a draw.

Judit was probably 17 then, her first big GM tournament (I think this might have been the infamous kasparov touch-Knight tournament), maybe van Wely thought he had to unbalance the positon, and play for a win against his inexperienced opponent.

Jun-28-10  Alphastar: <HeMateMe> Polgar was 13 when this game was played, Van Wely 17.
Jun-28-10  SpiritedReposte: Looks like Van Wely had something for a minute. 26. Nd5 is pretty but doesnt really accomplish anything after 26. ...Bg7.
Jun-28-10  RandomVisitor: After 26...Bg7 white had a nice game:

That incident actually occurred four years later at Linares: Judit Polgar vs Kasparov, 1994. Also, Judit was only 13 years old when this game against Van Wely was played.

  kevin86: A good attack-I think she can remain a good player as long as her hunger (Hungary) continues.

  Marmot PFL: Ideas like Qh1 and Bg2 look like moves of a genius when they work, but that is not so common.

  chrisowen: Loekistics? King does a funky cold medina and gets a shake down off something more deep than a misdemeanor. Zukertort it is a lawful claim opening yet pass over play shuffling pieces and defeat looms. E3 I just wonder gets punished later on Nf5 holds. Polgars play shone like a star discerning with good scope. Once the dust has settled, Van the Man kicks the corner emerges a white knight down seeks consolidate over time gets dashed off... any good Ne7+?
Jun-28-10  WhiteRook48: Ng4+ and Qe2 and black will have so much fun
