Apr-13-07  notyetagm: On, Mig says that both 7 ... ♘a6?! and 8 ... ♕c8?! are rather dubious moves for Black in this QID line. White (Fridman) hits the nail on the head when he plays 12 ♗h3!, pinpointing the problem with the Black setup.

Position after 12 ♗h3!:

Judit Polgar is one of the world's best grandmasters and one of its very best tacticians but not even she can do anything when her position is as bad as it is in the above diagrams. She lost this game without putting up much of a fight.
