Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-05-04  ArturoRivera: Wow!, nice trap from Viswanathan Anand, 14.-Nxb5! snatching a pawn, now if 14.-...axb5?? 15.-Bxb5 Nc6 16.-Bxc6 Ke7 (Kf8) with a HUGE advatage for white!
Mar-21-05  THE pawn: Is it me or the polgar sisters are crushed by the other players? I've noticed that judit has lost almost all of her games against kasparov and karpov, susan gets beaten by anand in every game. I know it's not a good comparaison, but I thought judit was in the top 10 players in the world and susan was the actual #1 rated woman...

  keypusher: Judit has a bad record against Kasparov, but so do Shirov, Adams, Korchnoi and lots of other strong GMs. Her record against Karpov is not so bad.

Zzuzsa is rated more than 200 points lower than Anand. Not too surprising she has doesn't do well against him.

Well, on paper, but in practice, it's different. Susan, like some women do, play for the art of chess and not for the wins. That's why, even when she's winning, she accepts the draw offer. That's why her rating is not that high.

LOL. Everybody plays for a win, Zzuzsa included. It is not easy to get a win against Anand though. ;-))

Apr-03-05  THE pawn: Yes, I know. I'm talking about her real rating. It should bit a bit higher.
Apr-03-05  csmath: Hard to say, she is not playing very often. I think she is quite strong but quite a bit behind her more famous sister. I gather she is doing chess business in the US and is a single mom. That would mean that she has no enough time to improve, she isn't exactly young any more either.

There is one Polgar in the superGM class and her name is Judit.

Nov-22-05  jmi: I have a question. Why didn't Anand do 25. Bxd5? The Bishop cannot be captured else 26. Nf4 forking both Queen and Rook and the White Knight cannot be taken by Black's Bishop if 25.. Qxd5 else Black's Queen is toast.
Nov-22-05  me to play: 25.Bxd5 Qxd5 26.Nf4 Bxf4 27.Rxd5 Bxc1
Nov-22-05  jmi: thx for the answer. :)

That's right. It is not easy. But also not impossible...:-D
