Oct-21-03  Whitehat1963: Nine? That's amazing. Maybe Judit was even more of a prodigy than Capablanca, Reshevsky and Morphy. Although I did read about a game in which Capablanca beat a master who gave him queen odds. Capablanca was not yet 5 years old!! I've never seen that game again. Don't remember the name of the book. Any truth to that? Thoughts out there?

  Honza Cervenka:, this is a game of Zsuzsa Polgar, not Judit.

  tamar: Not bad for a 16 year old either, if it was Zsuzsa. Joel Benjamin was 21 and over 2600 already.
Oct-02-05  DutchDunce: My guess would be Susan as well, since she is the only one of the Polgar sisters who plays 1.d4.
Mar-21-14  relikid: Ahhh.... The famous Black Knights Tango, Benjamin's specialty.

  HeMateMe: Why is the game drawn? White is up material and seems to have beaten back the black attack.

Material is about even. R+P vs B+N. A guy rated 100 points higher than you offers a draw, you will probably take it unless you see something concrete.
