Sofia ruled out.

  perfidious: At least these sisters played something a full game from time to time.

Odd to see Sofia playing 1.d4, though.

  Honza Cervenka: 19.Bg2 was a slip, which lost a Pawn, 23.Bxb7 was a blunder losing the game.

This is Sofia's only white win opening with 1.d4. She lost the other two...

Jan-16-15  disasterion: <Penguincw> Zsofia Polgar vs A Galliamova, 1993 is more convincing as a win for Sofia with 1.d4. The position for white here after 45...Rd1 looks pretty lost to me.
Jan-16-15  WDenayer: I do not understand. This variation with Bg2 and dxc5 is harmless. I think that White could have played 14. Qc3+ with the idea of b4, either after Nd2 or not, as a pawn sacrifice or not. It would give decent compensation. After 14.a3 Black is at least equal.
