Nov-26-08  Eyal: <Hah, just noticed Aleksandrov-Polgar 0-1 from Belarus-Hungary. This brought back old memories of a game with the same opponents that Aleksandrov annotated for back in 1999, his fine win over her from the 99 Euro Team Ch [A Aleksandrov vs Judit Polgar, 1999 ]. I dug it out of my archives. He endeared himself with gems like: "I did not prepare for this game. Generally, when playing against women, I never do.", "Now this is typical of Polgar: Judith starts an attack without any reason." "I never thought that girls could play this strong, and it was a real discovery for me, when Polgar demonstrated an outstanding score in the Europe championship." But he calls it his best game of the year, so whatever. The database sez this is the first time they have played since then. Again a Nimzo and a rather one-sided crush by Polgar with some cute tactics at the finish. I rather doubt she was aware of his comments at the time and/or now. This was only Polgar's second win against three losses in the Olympiad.> (
