   Dec-23-16 M Maslik vs M Ragger, 2016
mwic: Time trouble or what? Anyone know
   Feb-26-16 Ivanchuk vs Judit Polgar, 1997
mwic: Stockfish shows 7. Nc3 changing a +.2 advantage into a -.2 disadvantage For move 8, Bf4 and Bg5 bring the score back to almost-even. d5 is sixth-best after 24 levels of analysis, and scores -.46 Does anyone know what constitutes the "Polgar variation" and when it was so named?
   Sep-28-14 Yifan Hou vs Hiba Omrani, 2004
mwic: 10...Bd4 also defuses the threat. The same bishop check but then 13. Rh3 f5 is possible when Bishop isn't blocking it.
   Sep-28-14 Karpov vs Judit Polgar, 1995 (replies)
mwic: y, stockfish has 9.e5 as the best, far and away. Anyone know what Karpov didn't like about it?
   Aug-15-14 Carlsen vs Judit Polgar, 2014
mwic: Boris, I don't think your thesis is sound. For one thing, you have bad data: Yes, there is only 1 woman in the world top 100, but I did some extra research... I scanned the top-100 lists for the top 8-10 counties, and about 7% of the top players were women. Sounds like women suck, ...

mwic: @OhioChessFan , "some rights reserved" is ubiquitous, and indicates that a Creative-Commons license is attached to the pics. As for SS, I'm not a psychologist. Claiming to have been Zsuzsa Polgar's "boyfriend" when she was 17 and he was in his 40s was a bit much for me.
   Sep-13-13 I Krush vs N Kosintseva, 2006 (replies)
mwic: Not another game between these two in seven years? Something tells me that will change soon...
   Sep-13-13 Nadezhda Kosintseva (replies)
mwic: I was stunned to see Nadezhda in UTD gear at the Southwest Open Labor Day weekend (and got her autograph on my copy of Play Like a Girl). How awesome that the only active female GM in the country is now my neighbor!
   Aug-06-13 Judit Polgar vs A Chernin, 2007
mwic: One of your suspicions is correct: "ladylike gracefulness" is silly and almost-offensive. But per stockfish 17. ...e4 isn't the problem. 19. ...Qf6 is 19. ...Qb6 instead provides compensation for the pawn where it actually means something: queenside
   Aug-01-13 Li Ruofan vs A Zatonskih, 2001
mwic: I will ask Anna next time I see her
