Sep-25-10  radicalcation: She's playing very well. Bravo Judit!

Hope you play more tournaments.

Sep-25-10  cunctatorg: Hurray for Judith!!
Sep-26-10  twinlark: Judit Polgar is back in town kicking butt. In my book this game is a great candidate for usurping the <Detective Story> moniker given to Fischer vs Keres, 1962.

Bu doesn't make any obvious mistakes, but Polgar unerringly squeezes him to death. A truly clinical and deadly game by her. My candidate for the most weakening move made by Black is his response to 25. e5:

25...c4 just seems to have Black ending up being completely passive after 26. bxc4 dxe5 27. c5 Nd7 28. c6 Nf8 29. fxe5 Qa7.

The endgame after the queens are exchanged is just wonderful.

Sep-28-10  twinlark: This game deserves highlighting. It's awesome.
Sep-30-10  Illogic: Wow! Judit is BACK!!
