Dec-23-04  Whitehat1963: Polgar makes mincemeat out of the world's second best woman.

  acirce: May be, but I think Susan Polgar is better. She must surely have been at the time, at least.
Dec-23-04  Whitehat1963: I agree, but I couldn't find her on the most recent FIDE list. What's that about?

  acirce: Inactivity. She'll be back on the January list (with 2577) since she played in the Olympiad. Xie will be very close with 2573 as it seems.

  notyetagm: Notice how 29 ♗h7+! in this game is the exact same tactical theme as 24 ♖d7! in the game Judit Polgar vs J Fernandez Garcia, 2003: deflect the enemy king from guarding a square, take that square with your queen, and give mate. Both of her opponent GMs missed this tactical threat and lost on the spot because of it.

  notyetagm: A beautiful <deflection> forces mate: 29 ♗h7+! ♔xh7 30 ♕xf7+ ♗g7 31 ♕xg7#. Read my previous kib on this game to find another example where Judit wins another game by the exact same tactical device.
