Not long after we mentioned the Crestbook interview with Judit Polgar, we received a notification that the very same chess player was also interviewed recently by the Brazilian site Rádio Xadrez. Polgar, who will visit Brazil next month to compete in a tournament, told details about her life as mother, wife and chess player. She recalled important moments of her career: such as her games against Anand and Kasparov and the visit of Bobby Fischer to her family, and gave valuable tips to young and upcoming women chess players. She also spoke about her compatriot GM Péter Lékó, her country Hungary, her literary habits and her diet during tournaments.
