Dec-30-08  notyetagm: A tremendous game by GM Judit Polgar, which won her a special prize at the 2nd European Individual Chess Championship in Ohrid in 2001.
Dec-30-08  notyetagm: In fact, she liked this game so much that she annotated it for New In Chess Magazine, issue 2001/7 I believe.

  plang: Polgar played 3 Bb5 to avoid Tiviakov's expertise with the Dragon. With White delaying 0-0 a new position was quickly reached. Tiviakov played 9..Bd7 quickly not considering 9..Bb5 which would have hindered Whites castling. Black offered a draw after playing 13..Bg4 but Polgar wanted to play on though she didn't think White had a significant advantage. 18..e6?! was risky creating weaknesses; 18..Rxc1 would have been more solid. 21..Qxa2?!worked out poorly but White would have had an edge after 21..Rc8 22 Nf4..Rxc1+ 23 Qxc1. 25 Nf4! lrft all the White pieces more active than their Black counterparts; Polgar looked at and rejected 25 Rxd6..Rxd6 26 Qc8+..Ne8 27 Qxe8+..Kg7 28 Qe5+..Rf6 29 Nf4..Qc4 30 Nd5..Qc5+ 31 Kh1..Qd6 32 Qd4..a5 33 g4..h6 34 h4..g5 with a likely draw. Black resigned as he will have to lose the exchange.
