Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-09-05  PhilFeeley: There appear to be some moves missing, and the player gets move 4 wrong. It should be Nge2. How did she win?
Aug-29-06  Chicago Chess Man: Well, besides the fact that Polgar is up a rook for a knight, the knight's trapped. All she's gotta do is walk her king over and capture it.
Sep-04-15  SimplicityRichard: A 12 year old girl comfortably beats an established and respected Grandmaster. Now that's what you call talent.#
