Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-13-03  drukenknight: Zusa shows how to sack the R in the Pirc.
Feb-13-03  ughaibu: Great, not bothering to capture the knight.
Feb-13-03  drukenknight: I've played about 10 or 11 of games similar to the Fischer/Spassky game and this one is the neatest one so far.

This is an outrageous sack but it works in part because she knows to blow up the fianchetto with f5. There are some other games in this line where white has the chance but does not do so. After all what is the pt of the 3 pawns attack if you dont want to use the f pawn? He's not protecting your K up there so he must be used to open up the other K.

14...gxf5 looks overly optimistic.

Feb-14-03  judokausa1: I wonder what van wely was planning to do with his queenside pieces? The beauty of f5 is that it prevents black from getting pieces over to his kingside to help defend.
Feb-14-03  siimens: Zuza? Sofia is 1 of the 3 sisters, the less known
Feb-06-10  geladar: Fascinating game.If I remember correctly susan had said that sofia was the most talented although not too much motivated to chess.
Feb-12-15  KokeFischer: To better understanding of the current game, you should analyse Zsofia Polgar vs Van Wely, 1990

Funny how the Nh1 just sits there while Black gets mated. ;>D

Great attacking game.

Feb-24-17  scholes: The White Knight rises

Amazing game. After 16 Bc4, none of the black pieces or pawn can challenge the light squared bishop.
