Mar-03-14  actinia: according to my database black should play 7. ... Bxf3 and 8. ... Nxe5 rather than 7. ... Nge7?

she never regained the pawn and had an inferior, cramped position because of it, which Judit converted easily

Mar-04-14  actinia: I believe 44. ... d4 is forced due to white's threat of Nxb8 followed by Rc7 and the dual attack on h7.

  HeMateMe: nice start for Judit. Very patient.
Mar-04-14  david ne: yeah good start for Judit, however, you can see she is rusty after such a long absence of competitive chess. Really hope she does well here

  Sokrates: <david ne> Agreed. Although she played this confidently, one has the impression that the younger Polgar could have ended it much sooner.
Mar-04-14  RookFile: I think HeMateMe got it right. The stronger you get, the more there is a notion of "do not hurry". The main thing is to win the game.

  beenthere240: It certainly doesn't look like the mad attacker Polgar that the other GMs used to make fun of (but only when they won).
Mar-04-14  haydn20: <actinia: according to my database black should play 7. ... Bxf3 and 8. ... Nxe5 rather than 7. ... Nge7?> Seems to me the Pawn sac is OK as Black can develop open lines on the Qside. In fact, Black can get good play with 20...b6! instead of ...Rf8.
