Sep-28-11  skcin: Re confusedpatzer. I beg to differ, but kasparov has become a busy politico I am not up to all his political work, but he is not a dense person with his politics... With Fischer your statement stands.
Sep-28-11  scormus: Quite a macho game by Judit. I'm not sure at what point it was clearly advantage Judit, I don't think it was when she first offered the Ng5. Great vision to see the possibilities.

  Penguincw: Being behind in development could cost the game.
Dec-03-11  King Death: This was a brilliant attacking game by White.
Dec-03-11  Calar: Did Black resign too early? His pieces are quite passive, but I dpn't see any immediate win for White plus Black is not diown in material (Q vs R+K+P).

And of course, great and instructive attack by Judit Polgar. 14. g4 is indeed a move to remember.

  FSR: <Calar> Black's big problem is that he has no effective way to meet the threat of Qf4-Qh6-h8# while still holding onto his material. For example, the natural <24...Nf6> is met by 25.Qe5, crushing Black: 25...Nxg4 allows instant mate; 25...Kg7 26.g5 mates in 2; and 25...Nh7 26.Qh2 wins the knight for starters. The alternative <24...Kg7>, preparing to contest the h-file, is met by 25.Qf4 Rh8 26.Rxh8 (26.Rf1 is also good) Rxh8 27.Qxc7 Nf6? (losing the knight, but 27...Nf8 28.Qxa7 isn't much better) 28.Qe5! and again the threat of g5 is deadly.
Jul-23-14  Eduardo Bermudez: This is a cute example of how aggressive is the best woman chess player all time !

  Mating Net: If I had to vote for the most "instructive" move I have ever seen, it would be for Ms. Judit's 14.g4! She rightly eschews the a8 Rook to <Guarantee!> that she will open the h file. Once the h file was open, Black was permanently on the ropes.
Dec-11-14  Conrad93: Fischer could give Polgar knight odds and still win.
Nov-23-15  jriseman: I'm thinking Move 12, B-h7, was an error, and she didn't see the option then of P-g4 for Black (pinning the queen) for Move 14 (if she didn't play P-g4! herself). The sacrifice does not seem to be worth it until Black blunders on 17 with B-b7?? If Black had instead played 17. R-h8!, and closed off the H column, how could Polgar find the value in the sacrifice? Regardless, brilliant series by Polgar after Move 13.

<Conrad93: Fischer could give Polgar knight odds and still win.>

And Polgar could give you a rook. What of it?

Sep-02-16  The Kings Domain: Striking combinational sacrifice by Polgar, shades of the 19th-Century greats and Gaprindashvili.
Sep-02-16  Ratul: Someone please enlighten me. Didn't Polgar miss a mate in move 21? What is the continuation after queen advances to h7 check?
Sep-02-16  morfishine: <Ratul> White is in check

  The HeavenSmile: looks like 19..Kg8 might have been an error as well. If 19...Kg7 whites queen must come to h6 to force the black king to g8 and prevent the black rook coming to h8. Now, after black bishop and queen come to h5, h4 can no longer be played and the queen on h6 has to recapture the black queen. This leaves the white bishop on e4 undefended and gives black 2 minors and rook for the queen. 19...Kg7 20. Qh6+ Kg8 21. Rh1 Bxg5+ 22. Nxg5 Qxg5+ 23. Qxg5 Bxe4

Sep-02-16  morfishine: PUN METRIC INTERROGATION

Pun Counselor: "Is this an actual Pun?"

Pun Investigator: “No, the game title, 'Hey Jude' was a song written by the English rock band, the Beatles, released in 1968 and is 7 minutes and 11 seconds long, for the commercial released version.

Pun Counselor: “Is the title a play-on-word?”

Pun Investigator: “No“

Pun Counselor: “Can the titie be described as a rhyme, malapropism, idomatic construction, elementary play-on-word or anything like that?”

Pun Investigator: “This title barely meets the rhyme qualification since 'Jude' somewhat rhymes with 'Judit', the player in command of the White pieces”. Other than that, there is no connection, since the song was written for Julian Lennon, John Lennon's son, a male, and Judit Polgar is a female, so no connection, whatever.

Pun Counselor: “Thank you, Is there anything at all that the viewing audience can grasp onto for entertainment purposes or anything amusing at all?”

Pun Investigator: “No. Apparently, the only reference or connection is a rather weak, limp rhyme reference, thats it"

Pun Counselor: “Thank you sir. So in your opinion, can we conclude that there is no pun, there is no play-on-word, there is no off-shoot reference or for that matter, there isn't anything amusing at all, and the only offering is an incredibly weak rhyme connection, is that correct, in your opinion?”

Pun Investigator: “I would say so, yes. From what I can tell, yes sir, there is nothing here to define a pun or any of the other types of word-play you described and as you state, nothing amusing, nothing entertaining at all whatever.”

Pun Counselor: “Is there anything you would like to add sir?”

Pun Investigator: “Yes sir, In my opinion, a chess game of this quality does not deserve such an illogical, nonsensical, obscure, idiotic, and/or irrelevant title. In fact, no title is warranted at all for such a grand game of chess.”

Pun Counselor: “Thank you sir”

Sep-03-16  Abdel Irada: ∞

Excellent courtroom sketch, <morf>. But you left out the ruling.

<The Judge: "Counselor: Concerning your indictment, subject of one continuance too many, of the quality of the puns as a class, I must find for the defendant, on the grounds that *some* of the puns are quite good.

"I must further instruct you that any further attention to this once-and-now-not-future defendant on the part of your office may be regarded as evidence of quixotic obsession unsuited to your profession.

"However, as to the *present* defendant, today's pun, I find it guilty as charged and sentence it to immediate replacement.

"In fact, I'll nominate a better pun* for this game myself: <Lever alone!>"

[Pause]

"Reporter, strike my last paragraph from the transcript.">

---

*You'll notice I never said it's a *good* pun, but it is *better* than the incumbent. ;-)

Dec-04-16  morfishine: <Abdel Irada> Excellent riposte! Much more realistic legal terminology than my poor effort

Sep-24-17  Arconax: Most lame <chessgames>-pun ever?

But <morphishine> and <Abdel Irada>'s posts making fun of this extremely weak pun are hilarious. Great sense of humour.

Sep-24-17  Granny O Doul: Uninspired title, yes, and of course not a pun, though I don't think a pun is required every time. But "Jude" and "Judit" don't rhyme, not even a little bit. They simply share a syllable. If we do need a pun, though, here is my suggestion: "Inter Ferenc", or "the 'inter Ferenc' theme".
Feb-14-19  BickeDag: It's not a pun, but Jude and Judit both come from the name "Judith", so there is certainly a connection there. The Beatles song was written to comfort the young Julian Lennon after the divorce of his parents. In a similar way, Berkes was probably very distraught after falling for this dubious trap.
Aug-28-19  Patzer Natmas: Excellent play! I thought I saw a quicker way of finishing the game, but this game shows her prowess!
