Does Polgar have a 'thing' for knights? I noticed some deft knight work in: Judit Polgar vs Topalov, 1994
Jul-04-04  ajit: HI Samvega! Where are you from?
Jul-04-04  samvega: Hello ajit. I'm not from where you might think. I spent a little time as a cook/janitor at a western Theravada monastery. 'samvega' is a Pali term meaning 'spiritual urgency'. I picked the word as a username for no better reason than that I like it . . . the avatar available from chessgames seemed appropriate . . .
