Default Now Susan Polgar is Attacking the New York Times

Take a look at:
http://susanpolgar.blogspot.com/2008/10/spice-cup.html

Through her ubiquitous "anonymous" posters, Susan Polgar is attacking
the New York Times, demanding that its reporter be fired.

He had better watch out. Next thing, Susan Polgar will sue his ass,
claiming that he is persecuting her because she is a woman and of
foreign descent.

This is a good example of why, no matter what Truong and Polgar may
have done, I still find them more tolerable than some of the bottom-
feeding vermin on the other side. (In case I'm being too subtle, Sam,
that refers to you.) Anyone who bothers to look at the link will see
that Polgar _correctly_ rebukes McClain for misquoting. As for the
anonymous trolls, what part of "anonymous" is confusing to you? For
all we know, they could be you, trying to discredit Polgar by
pretending to be an insane supporter.

(Parenthesis for donkeys: The previous sentence in paranoid drivel. It
is, however, the same kind of paranoid drivel the Sloon tried to
peddle in his nutcase lawsuit. Live by it, die by it.)

I think she should join McClain and the NY Times in her "defamation"
action. They clearly don't like her and they are tearing down
everything she and hubby do because she is of Eastern European heritage.
They probably wish she was still in Forrest Hill running these
tournaments out of the Polgar Chess Center. Shame on the Times for
pointing out the truth. Shame!

Sorry, but I know exactly what "anonymous trolls" means on Polgar's
websites.

It means something that Polgar or Truong wrote that they do not want
to sign their names too.

There are hundreds of examples of this. Some "anonymous troll" will
attack a person and then Polgar will write something like "Don't
attack that person. He is such a nice guy in spite of his character
flaws." This makes Polgar seem to be the voice of moderation when
actually it was her or Truong who wrote both postings.

announces it has assembled the *strongest field of chess grandmasters in
U.S. round-robin history* for its 2008 SPICE Cup International

Default Now Susan Polgar is Attacking the New York Times

Susan Polgar organized a tournament with ten players that nobody ever
heard of but all of whom have very high ratings.

She deserves full credit for that.

All she had to do was say that it was "one of the strongest
tournaments ever heard in the USA" and everybody would have agreed.

But her publicist had to say that it was the "strongest". That is
where the trouble lies.

Now, it is entirely possible that Pentala Harikrishna, Alexander
Onischuk, Varuzhan Akobian and Leonid Kritz really are stronger than
Capablanca, Lasker and Alekhine who played in New York 1924. We will
never know because Capablanca, Lasker and Alekhine are all dead and
Pentala Harikrishna, Alexander Onischuk, Varuzhan Akobian and Leonid
Kritz all come armed with computer databases that have figured out
their opening moves before they even sit down to play.

It is also possible that Pentala Harikrishna, Alexander Onischuk,
Varuzhan Akobian and Leonid Kritz are stronger than Fischer, Spassky
and Petrosian who played in the Piatagorsky Cup. Nobody will ever
really know.

But Polgar's puffery comes along with her claim that she won the
Woman's World Championship four times, when she did not, that she won
the "Triple Crown of Chess" when there is no such title and that she
is the number one ranked woman in the USA when she is not.

Thank you for asking.

This information is available on the USCF website:

http://main.uschess.org/component/op...=Top%20W omen

Here are the top ten players in the USA:

1 Zatonskih, Anna (12873912) NY USA 2498
2 Krush, Irina (12543137) NY USA 2493
3 Goletiani, Rusudan (12807449) NY USA 2384
4 Rohonyan, Katerine (12973020) WA USA 2335
5 Abrahamyan, Tatev (12851435) CA USA 2328
6 Tuvshintugs, Batchimeg (12925481) CA USA 2312
7 Melekhina, Alisa (12726115) PA USA 2310

9 Battsetseg, Tsagaan (12719650) MD USA 2256
10 Zenyuk, Iryna (12846035) NY USA 2249

As you can plainly see, Susan Polgar is not even in the top ten.

What is the NY Times reporter's source for his statement that "Texas
Tech said the Spice Cup was the strongest invitational tournament to
be held in the United States"? Who at Texas Tech said this, when,
where? Did any such statement actually appear anywhere under Texas
Tech auspices?
It does not appear that Polgar herself has issued any such
statement; rather, she said "the 2008 SPICE Cup [will be] the highest
rated 10 person International RR event in U.S. history." That's not at
all the same thing as McClain reports.

The New York Times quoted a press release from Texas Tech that has
been on the USCF website since July 10, 2008. If this was wrong Susan
had an obligation as a USCF Board member and as director of the SPICE
Program to correct it:
