  Fusilli: Nice mating net at the end. I played through this game quickly, and it appears to be quite complex.
Dec-06-12  Atking: Yes the middle game and the finish is great. The final position how much effective is the light square Bishop compare to the dark square one. May be BxNd5 wasn't White best decision. Until now I feel strange by Nakamura's opening choice. Like he is keeping something on reserve.
Dec-06-12  paramount: Time to resign from the men's chess, Polgar. Compete in your own gender.
Dec-06-12  Everett: <paramount: Time to resign from the men's chess, Polgar. Compete in your own gender.>

And I guess you think Jones and McShane should join her?

Dec-06-12  Strongest Force: Judit's pieces in wrong place at wrong time.
Dec-06-12  uncleostrich: yes, other females would definitely give her a good run for the money right now.
Dec-06-12  Shams: <uncleostrich> A girl-crazy chessplayer friend of mine from Bellingham talks like that too. I tell him, "What is this, Animal Planet? Female people are *women*." Whatever works for you, I guess.

Dumb comment.

But I do think that Judit is done being a real contender--her best years are behind her, at this point. She has young children, she's old---she prolly just can't devote herself to chess now the way she could a few years back. And her openings/preparation is just dubious.

Time to give her super-tournament invites to higher-rated/up-and-coming players. Would've have loved to see someone like Ding Liren cross swords with the chess elite in London.

Maybe next time.

She's younger than Kramnik, Adams, and Anand.
