|Sep-03-02|| ||bishop: A thematic attack on the g-file by Kasparov, maybe Judit was surprised by 21...d5. |
|Sep-07-04|| ||notyetagm: This game is a really, really impressive Sveshnikov by Kasparov. It received GM Larry Christiansen's 10-point vote in the Chess Informant Best Game voting in its issue. |
|Sep-07-04|| ||alexandrovm: What happend!! Did everyone so the interview with Alexksandra Kosteniuk, on CNN here at this site, or was just me. |
|Sep-07-04|| ||alexandrovm: After move 21, Polgar realizes the danger, and starts fleeing to the other side of the board. The king was chased all over the board, and the final blow was 39. ... Bxe5 |
|Oct-12-04|| ||gadfly: I don't quite understand the pun. Was the game played in Prague or what? |
|Oct-12-04|| ||gadfly: Does it have something to do with black's win? |
|Oct-12-04|| ||cu8sfan: <gadfly> It says so in the "site" field of the game header. |
|Oct-12-04|| ||gadfly: Of course! Thanks <cu8sfan> |
|Oct-12-04|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: The title is a pun on "Black Plague." Certainly, after 28.Kc4 completes a picturesque tangle of White pieces, you could say her position was fatally ill.|
The game itself is a good example of why I never played the Sveshnikov--too messy for my taste. But there's lots of fun stuff here. For example, if White had played 21.Bd5 (best?), Black could have tried 21...Ra7, followed by 22...Bd8!?, which threatens 23...Bd8-b6, simultaneously clearing the seventh rank so the Queen Rook can swing over to the King side after ...f7-f5.
But I have no idea if any of this is good for either side. White could interfere by playing 22.Nb4, threatening 23.Nc6. As I wrote, too messy.
|Oct-12-04|| ||TheWhiteRider: I’m very far from their level of play but it seems that she did a fatal mistake on 38. Nxe5… |
|Oct-12-04|| ||kevin86: Ain't no way to treat a lady... |
|Oct-12-04|| ||Marco65: Is the Susan Polgar writing at www.chesscafe.com the same as Judit Polgar? |
|Oct-12-04|| ||percyblakeney: No, this is Zsuzsa Polgar (or Susan), this is Judit Polgar and the thrid sister is Zsofia Polgar |
|Oct-12-04|| ||patzer2: Not that the opening move 12. Be3 is a problem, but this game makes me realize why 12. exf5, as in Anand vs Kasparov, 2004 or Shirov vs Kramnik, 2004 , is much more popular at Master level. |
|Oct-12-04|| ||Marco65: <percyblakeney> Thanks. I was confused by this link http://uscfsales.com/sub-category.a..., it reads "world champion Susan Polgar..."! |
|Oct-12-04|| ||acirce: She was Women's World Champion 1996-99, something Judit has never been. |
|Oct-12-04|| ||patzer2: Kasparov's 21...d5!! is a strong clearance move to set up the amazing pin 22...Bc5!! If 24. Qf1 then 24...Bh3! , with a second pin, is decisive. |

|Oct-12-04|| ||Marco65: <acirce> How can that be? Judit is at 9th place in FIDE list (men and women). Is she so strong that she's not interested in that kind of title? |
|Oct-12-04|| ||acirce: I don't know the exact reason, but she doesn't participate in women-only competitions at all, I think. |
|Oct-12-04|| ||uzeromay: More importantly, regarding Zsuzsa, alias Susan, Polgar, is that Zsuzsa Polgar is the first woman to have achieved grandmaster status. Prior to this year, when she drew in a match with Karpov, and more recently drew a game with Alburt, Susan has been taking a bit of a hiatus from professional chess while promoting chess education. The Polgar sisters benefited from having a father who had written his PhD on chess pedagogy. |
|May-13-06|| ||spirit: <bishop> i'm sure judit was surprised by 21...d5 but 18...Bf6 was a preparation for that.Now i think 18...Bf6 aesthetically resembles 24 Re3 in Judit Polgar vs Karpov, 2003 judit might have missed the possibility of 21...d5 because of Rg8 somewhere after 18...Bf6. I think the killer here is 18...Bf6 (as i personally dislike 20 Rf2) just as the killer in the above game is 24 Re3.Their psychological effect is similar...i'm a "polgarnut" though...|
|Sep-30-06|| ||yudhimaster: Kasparov understimate her for sure, i think its best for him to take 9... Qxe6 its has strong center|
|Sep-30-06|| ||babywizard: <yudhimaster>9...Qxf6 is bad because after 10.Nd5 the black queen has to retreat back to d8 wasting a tempo. This is opening theory.|

Yes, this is quite an impressive tactical tour de force by Kasparov, and this was a rapid(!) game.
This game so impressed Informant judge GM Larry Christiansen that he voted it the Best Game of the Informant in which it was published.
|Dec-27-06|| ||notyetagm: One of my absolute favorite Kasparov games.
