Chess King Show - Gibraltar Chess Festival - Koneru Humpy holds Judit Polgar to draw!

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hello everyone,

It was inevitable - they would meet! It happened at the Gibraltar Chess Festival on Friday. World's top-rated women chess players Judit Polgar and Koneru Humpy met in Round 4 having scored  2.5 points each! (Hou Yifan is No. 2 between the two!)
How about a little chess class with Chess King? We have a nice game from the Gibraltar Chess Congress. Of course, the chess news reports about the updated standings after the latest rounds will follow later. For now, get that cup of coffee and sit back. Chess King will show you the chess game between the world's strongest women chess players. (Psst: Do you know Chess King comes with Houdini - the world's strongest chess engine?) Enjoy. 

Judit Polgar (2710) - Koneru Humpy (2589)

Result: 1/2-1/2

    i always have believed women's chess is very strong. it had to be humpy or hou who would hold polgar back :) i know that chess queen has also beaten judit polgar. it would be really great if more women play in open tournaments like in gibraltar so many women soon we will have more women in the top. nice game. thanks for sharing.
