Hou Yifan vs Judit Polgar Gibraltar 2012

Gibraltar 2012 chess tournament happening on the same week with Tata Steel at Wijk Aan Zee. But this "2nd rated" high class tournament is follows by big names as Svidler, Polgar, Almasi etc. Then, the most interesting point here is the encounter of Judit Polgar to two of current strongest female player, Koneru Humpy and Hou Yifan.

Judit Polgar is currently (and for age...) the highest female chess player in FIDE elo rating, rated at 2710. Koneru Humpy at 2589 and Hou Yifan at 2605. The differences are about 100 elo. Judit played a draw game to Koneru, but historically, lost to current female World Champion Hou Yifan. This is perhaps the only lost Judit suffered to female player in classical chess for so long. Judit lost to sista Susan Polgar back in 1992, and lost to Alexander Kosteniuk year 2009 but in blitz game.

Here the game Hou Yifan vs Judit Polgar, Gibraltar 2012. In this dynamic Sicilian game, white maintained her attacking mode all the way and force black to slowly lost a piece. Great game Hou!
