  plang: Game 1 of their second round match in the Las Vegas World Championship tournament; Polgar won this match 1.5-0.5 then defeated Magem Badals and Zvjagincev Before being eliminated by Khalifman in the quarterfinals. In the fifth game (quickplay playoff) of his first round match with Benjamin Neilson had faced 16 Qa4 and drawn; 16 Nd2 was new (16 Bxc7..Rac8 gives Black active counterplay). Polgar thought that 23..Bxa3 24 24 Bg4..Qb5 25 Bxc7..Nc4 would have been a better defense. Perhaps 24..c5 would have been a more active defense than Neilsons 24..c6. After 27..Rd8? 28 Bg4 Black was in deep trouble as 28..Qd5 29 Bc7..Ra8 30 Bf3..Qg5 31 d5..b6 32 d6 would have led to a big advantage for White. Polgar used the time that Neilson spent recovering his pawn during moves 32-34 to build a strong kingside attack culminating in 38 Qe4! forcing resignation as 38..Kh8 39 Rxg7!..Rxe5 40 Rxf7..Rxe4 41 Rxd7 would have been hopeless.
