Jan-10-09  DwayneMeller: larsen played powerful moves and brought down Polgar the plan behind 29b5! cxb5 30Nf6+ threatening 31Nxd7 30...Bxf6 31Bxd5 and the exchange after 32Bxf7.

  Travis Bickle: This game shows how great Bobby Fischer was! He defeated Bent Larsen at his peak 6-0 in The Candidate matches and Larsen as an old man defeats an up and coming powerhouse player in Judit.
Jan-10-09  Poulsen: Ha ha ha - with that type of argument anyone - even I - be proven a great player - since I once beat a man, who had beaten Larsen.
Jan-10-09  champsylove: Think that might be a simplification of Bickle's argument as neither you nor your friends brothers cousins best mate beat Larsen SIX IN A ROW at the height of his energy and focus in chess. Mr Bickle I agree, Fischer was awesome and many other GMs agree with you with your reference to the candidate matches.
Apr-21-10  shakespeare: this game is from 1992 - Judith was 16 - Bent Larsen almost 60 played his whole life against some of the best players ever like Spassky - not a 100% argumentation but maybe something to consider :-)

  Travis Bickle: <Poulsen> Ha ha ha - I doubt you beat a man who once beat Larsen's mother!
Jul-08-10  CKT73: Going for a double fianchetto in the first four moves... Brilliant! Seems like it could be very effective in practice, because how many players honestly spend a lot of their energy preparing for such an occurrence?
Sep-13-16  RookFile: Larsen always liked to play h4 and gets a chance here with 22. h4.
