GM Judit Polgar will be featured multiple times on Chess.com and ChessKid.com during the month of March! Her contributions are being made in a partnership with Chess.com and its scholastic extension site in an effort to help Judit further her efforts for chess and education. 

The strongest female player of all time will become the newest addition to Chess.com's team of contributors this month! Judit first burst onto the chess scene at the 28th Chess Olympiad in 1988, held in Thessaloniki, Greece, when she scored 12½ out of 13, earning the Gold Medal for Board 2 and leading the Hungarian Women's Team over the Soviet Union (a major upset at the time as the Soviets had won 10 of the previous 11 Olympiads). This result catapulted her to #1 on the next FIDE Ratings List, and she has held this spot ever since.

Judit earned her GM title at the age of 15, breaking Bobby Fischer's record for being the youngest GM of all time. After that, it wasn't long before Judit joined the world's elite with wins over such players as Kasparov, Karpov, and Anand, and her sharp attacking style naturally earned her the label as one of the most dangerous attacking players in the world.


To this day, Judit remains the only female to cross the 2700 FIDE benchmark, and is nearing a record 25 straight years as the highest rated female player in the world. Recently Judit has become an accomplished author, her most recent work titled "How I beat Fischer's Record". Judit has also released her own iPhone App, "Judit Polgar's Chess Playground", designed to introduce more children to the game, and she is working hard in her efforts to organize yet another Polgar Chess Festival for the Fall of 2013 (exact dates not yet know, but here is a link to information regarding the 2012 Festival).

To come this month, Judit will be recording a series of videos for Chesskid.com, aimed at inspiring kids, parents, and coaches - with highlights from her New App! Secondly, IM Danny Rensch will be releasing full reviews of her App and book, on Chess.com (The Book) and ChessKid.com (App), to be released the week of March 25th. You can also look for more information regarding Judit's recent works in an upcoming Chess.com newsletter. 

The most exciting news of all? Everything will lead up to a live 1 hour Q & A session with IM Danny Rensch and Judit Polgar on March 31st, at 11 AM Pacific, right here on Chess.com/TV! And here's the kicker: EVERYONE can comment on *THIS* news post with questions for Judit! Please keep questions relevant to Judit's career, her training, her new book and app, and her plans for the future. Not all questions will be asked, but many from this thread will be selected by Danny to ask Judit. 

We hope you're as excited for Judit as we are, and make sure to tune in to Chess TV on March 31st!

    In other sports there is always a warm up before a match. How do you warm up before a game?

    Dear Judit, 

    Your greatness in chess is only outdone by your beauty. You are a 100% purebred babe. I can only hope that one day our offspring will mate and form a new race of superhumans. Call me.
