May-26-04  mymt: "the female version of Fischers Game of the Century" - Leonard Barden . Wonder if Judith was familiar with Carty v Xu Jun 84 ? Not a bad game for 11years old in fact for any age.
Feb-24-05  blunderqueenagain: O how glorious!

23. Kc1 Nb3#

Not only does the knight deliver mate, it forks king, queen, and rook in the same move! Now that must be the most beautiful finish I've ever seen! I'm in awe that this actually happened in a real game!

Oct-26-06  Kaspablanca: And besides all these things you said blunderqueen, bear in mind that Judit was only 11 when she played this terrific game!
Apr-24-07  essekids: This seems like a masterful game even when compared to all of her earlier games up to this point.
Nov-18-10  sevenseaman: A well planned game. For a preteen it is prodigious.
