I don't know what her rating was at the time, oinquarki. It was Yifan Hou when she was 13Smile

The position below Houdini evaluates as +1.16 for Yifan over Judit!

Yifan Hou is two pawns up against Judit Polgar in their first ever game together! This will also be Yifan's second win against a 2700 in this tournament! Amazing!

I wonder if Judit and Hou would be more open to a match after todays game

trysts

Judit said she would for the right amount of money.

Arctor

Great! I'll start pinching my pennies

trysts

I bet they would play a match for ten thousand pounds(that's one million euros)!Laughing

That 1st game is cool how, if it's played out, white's promoted queen skewers black's king and wins black's promoted queen.

Usually, dummy me can't figure out why GM's stop playing.  lol
