Dec-04-07  LIFE Master AJ: I look forward to it!
May-02-08  positionalgenius: An awesome attack here,probably the best game from the 2002 olympiad.
Aug-27-08  Katu: Phew! Somany pins, they come every move...
Mar-12-09  BadKnight: Polger must be cheating!!
Mar-12-09  blacksburg: of course she was cheating! look at these moves! 11.Ng5?!?! how could she possibly have found this move without Rybka? she's not even 2700!

  Jim Bartle: Yeah, but the search might have been a little awkward.
Mar-12-09  blacksburg: <Yeah, but the search might have been a little <<sexy>>.>

fix'd. :)

Mar-13-09  Ladolcevita: Typical Polgar,she starts to attack the opponents without any reason:)

  whiteshark: As Viktor Korchnoi said:

" Everything in chess that has been forgotten is new. "

  whiteshark: <14...Ke7> looks like the only playable continuation. --> Svidler vs Anand, 1999
Apr-12-09  Andrijadj: Polgar was cheating...surely...I mean,it is impossible to beat great Mamedyarov without strong computer assistance...But,a great gentleman he is,he did not accused Polgar because she is female,after all...
Oct-10-09  ROADDOG: Polgar pounds Mamedyarov with no mercy in 23 moves. Vid on this great game by Polgar.

  goldfarbdj: I managed to score 18 on the Guess-the-Move -- I'd have done even better, if I'd found 23 Be7+. I'm looking and looking, and I don't see what white does after 23. ... Nxe7. LIFE Master AJ found it too obvious to put on his site. Can somebody help me please?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Marmot PFL: <goldfarbdj> Guess just 24 Rxe5 and black will lose Ne6 with check as well - 24...Kxe5 25 Re1+ etc. Good game by Polgar, and I'm sure Mamedyarov has found safer lines to play vs top players.
Premium Chessgames Member
  goldfarbdj: Now that I look at it again in light of the previous comment, I see that if 24 ... Kxe5 25 Re1+ black loses the knight on e6 with *mate*, not just check. So black has to play 24 ... c6 or Kd7, and white plays 25 Qxe6+ and then 26 Rxc5.
Jun-22-10  LIFE Master AJ: My old site (Geo-Cities) shut down, my page on the analysis of this game has moved. (See below.)

Aug-03-10  LIFE Master AJ: This game is also annotated in the book: "50 Essential Chess Lessons," by FM Steve Giddins. (Game # 3.)
Aug-03-10  LIFE Master AJ: 11.Ng5 was played by Karpov against Korchnoi in one of their World Championship matches. (It was a product of Tal's brain, believe it ... or not.)
Apr-30-11  pkkandel: where is <notyetagm>? he used to call Shakhriyar Mamedyarov "king of tactics" but i dont see even a micro element of that in this game.
May-21-11  Whitehat1963: Remains by far the longest game in the Guess-the-Move database's five hardest games. Obviously a complex masterpiece.

  kingscrusher: Great stuff
Premium Chessgames Member
  jvitray: In light of 24. Qf3+ Kc4 25. b3# throwing the Queen in the way with 24... Qe4 only prolongs.

  WorstPlayerEver: Nice tactic, but it's not hard to see what happens when QxKt ;)
Dec-17-16  ACMEKINGKRUSHER: hhhhmmmmm,

Man, Woman, or Child has a GREAT DAY and it is assumed that they are CHEATING???? Not a fan or hater of Polgar! To say she is a CHEAT is so, so, WRONGO!

One of Judit's Sisters SUSAN Polgar does need to learn about FREEDOM & hijabs. WAY to Go US CHESS for their Support!
