Default Harry Payne on Polgar

for. Folks the Lady makes a living from promoting chess, nothing wrong
with that. But please, the Mother Theresa thing is getting old. Part
of the success in Texas is from long before Ms. Polgar, How about The
Dean of American Chess, George Koltanowski, where was Ms. Polgar when
Chess Philanthpopist, Bill Church presented him with a declaration
from the Governor's Office making him an Official Citizen of Texas in
1985, Or when he was given a plaque by the players in Texas for his
life-long promotion of chess in the Lone Star State. Some of the crops
being harvested by Ms. Polgar , is in ground that was plowed along
time ago. To give all the credit to Ms. Polgar, is a slight to a lot
of hard working people, that didn't make a living or a fortune at it.
They did it because they loved the game. Thank goodness for all Ms.
Polgar does, but you will have to go a lot farther back to see who
plow that ground.

In love of the Game.
Harry Payne
Very Good. Thank you.
