Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-19-05  PhilFeeley: The Hastings tournament database of this game ends at move 28. Isn't 30. Rg8 in fact mate?
Jun-19-05  aw1988: Rg8#.
Jun-19-05  OneArmedScissor: Judit seems to manipulate everything in the game to her favor. Good win.
Jun-19-05  Elvis in Chicago: Pretty deep combo, 12 moves, from the pawn gimmee on g2? Eat your heart out Gery Kasparov!
Jun-19-05  like a GM: She is an evil manipulative genius! Katherine Tramell of chess :)
Jun-19-05  like a GM: <Elvis in Chicago> Oh please, the princess is never above the King!
Jun-19-05  Clutch: How does the square g2 fit into your analysis?
Jun-19-05  themindset: she gave the pawn on g2 in order to open the attack on blacks king.
Jun-20-05  James Tiberius Kirk: I love it! The very first reference to Katherine Tramell on chessgames. (Do we have a photo...?)
Jun-29-05  Clutch: Judit was just lucky
Dec-27-05  dkulesh: she is a god
May-26-07  hpavlo: A Goddess...
May-26-07  Chess Carnival: A chess player ...
Feb-23-14  zanzibar: Is this really from 1993? I found it given as 1992 from a couple of different sources.

Also, I would think the game ended after 28.Nxh6 as given by one of my db's.

Feb-23-14  RedShield: Hastings takes place over the New Year period, so it could be either. Try
Feb-23-14  zanzibar: Thanks for the links RedShield, the PGN files give 1992 as the date.

Actually they give 1992.??.?? as Date, and 1992.12.?? as EventDate.

I think PGN, if strictly followed, could have a lot of problems if a tournament straddles the New Year given common usage/convention.

Jul-28-14  achieve: Since this is a royal arsebeating in the last round of the tournament this must be from 1993, and clinching a full point for tourny victory, shared, at age 16, is remarkable... Stunning!
