pointguard: i'm not sure anyone knew this , but Polgar toook @45 seconds to 1 minute to decide on moves until move 13. I think 13. g4 stunned her because she took @ 10-15 minutes to respond. Granted that anything else could have explained the delay of the flow of her moves at this point, i ...

pointguard: Is 13...Ne8 better for black? Perhaps, then, the line would slightly go 14. Bh5 a6?
 
   Jan-14-05 Judit Polgar vs Szendrei, 1984 (replies)
 
pointguard: You know, I think 21...Qxf6 22. Bh6 gets played next with the threat of Bg7+. If 22...Rg8, then 23. RxR+ KxR 24. O-O-O and Black is in serious trouble.

pointguard: chances are that this game was on a 5-minute timed pace. and the clock is notorious for lowering a chessplayer's abilities

pointguard: Question to throw out there: Why did Black resign after move# 43?
 
   Dec-17-04 T Hay vs Judit Polgar, 1987 (replies)
 
pointguard: Move 16. I wonder if Polgar had considered...Na2, the sacrifice of the knight to gain better central position. But, after the loss of the knight-rook exchange, the rest of this game needs no explanation.

pointguard: 27.Rxg3 leads to...Ne2+ 28. Kf1 Nxg3+ 29. Ke1 Nh1 30.Ne4 f5 and White is in serious trouble. 29. Kg2 Ne2 30. Qb3(or Qc2) g5 becomes a serious threat. The problem is that the black queen is in a powerful position, that white cannot dislodge her in a few moves.

pointguard: This game shows a great endgame situation worth studying, A rook and bishop vs. 2 bishops in an open field. Usually, it favors the rook advantage(however slight), but as Black shows us, it's very difficult for White to exploit the advantage. However, White decides to centralize ...

pointguard: I question black's move 4...a6. White is building a powerful center with pawns. It would be a good idea for black to break up that center by attacking it immediately with black's center pawns.4...e5 may be a better move. 4... f5 should be considered here, as well. I think ...f5 ...
 
   Nov-13-04 Le Clercq vs Zsuzsa Polgar, 1982 (replies)
 
pointguard: NO doubt that the bishop sacrifice was premature. However, i find it strange that one would play that sacrifice against the sicilian. THis type of sacrifice is more common against closed centers than open ones. A natural tendency for black would be to play ...Re8 after white ...
