I stand corrected. Short played one-on-one with the title holder, whereas Polgar played in an all-play-all 8-person tournament, finishing last with one win in fourteen games.I'm so old that I remember when the FIDE World Championship was the one and only. Not any more. Kramnik sat that one out and beat the winner a year later. (Had Kramnik accepted his invitation in 2005, Polgar would not have been there.)
That's not a real world championship any more than the "FIDE World Championship" knockout tournaments that Khalifman, Kazimdzhanov, etc., won were. This was, however, effectively a candidates' tournament, and Judit Polgar is still the only woman to play in one of those.
Botvinnik won his FIDE title in a quintuple round-robin tournament in 1948.
There is considerable evidence that the competion was tainted by Soviet collusion.
That is your opinion, not one held by FIDE.
Awesome rock it girls
It is a thought for sure...however, no female GM that I know of, at least, has EVER been rated even nearly as high as the top ten men in the world. I could be wrong, but I think I'm pretty close. Maybe some day it will be! ;)
Honestly I could not care less. My God people get over the obsession
I don't really care, either, actually. Idk why I'm here.
Number eight in the world in 2005.
