Happy Birthday Judit Polgar!

Happy Birthday Judit Polgar!

16 | Chess Players

Judit Polgar is comfortably the strongest female chess player in the history of the game.  Born on 23 July 1976, she has been successfully playing the top male chess players on equal terms for over a decade. 

She achieved the Grandmaster title aged just 15 years and 4 months - at that time the youngest person to do so.

Along with her elder sisters, Susan and Sofia, she was coached by her father Lazlo Polgar to show that 'genius' can in fact be taught by intensive tuition from a young age.

Judit Polgar has proved that women can compete as well as men in the top echelons of chess.

Happy Birthday Judit!
