Default Karpov defeats Polgar with 1. g4 !!

ChessBase News reports that former world champion Anatoly Karpov
defeated Grandmaster Zsuzsa Polgar with the move 1. g4.

http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp?newsid=2713

There were problems with the sensory chessboard at the Karpov vs.
Polgar match so it is not known whether the moves to the Karpov-Polgar
six game match were preserved. The match ended in a 3-3 tie. The other
two games in which Karpov had white were drawn. This proves that
Karpov did better with 1.g4 than with other moves.

Sam Sloan also once defeated Zsuzsa Polgar and several times defeated
Judit Polgar and Sophia Polgar in blitz games with the move 1. g4.

This proves once again that the move 1. g4 can be played with success
even at the World Championship level.

Ummm... no it doesn't prove that. It only proves that 1.g4 can be
successful at faster time controls, no more. They played blitz... not
standard time controls.

Also, the article states that Polgar was distracted by Gorbachev
serving Karpov and her water. Due to this, she froze and lost the
game. This indicates that the opening did not necessarily win the
game.

The game proves nothing, and besides, it was a blitz game.

Henri


On the contrary, it proves that :
1. Gorbi knows chess well.
2. He knows that playing g4 is unusual and funny but
3. it was an exhibition match played for fun.
4. The hypothesis that Sam Sloan told him to do so is not impossible but
very unlikely ;-)

Nice! I can't resist asking though, how old were they at the time? My
guess is the answer will turn out to be something like 15, 8 and 10,
respectively.

I don't believe he ever beat any of them, at any age.

This was in mid-1986, so they were 16, 11 and 10.

Could you refer us to sites with any of these games. I'd like to see
them. Thanks.



John

(P.S.: I don't mean your site. I mean legitimate sites. Thanks.)
