Tommy Takes Down a GM

Yesterday at the Czech Open in Pardubice Tom Polgar-Shutzman managed a nice win over Russian GM Semen Dvoirys!

As you may have guessed by the name, Tom is a part of the famous Polgar family. He is Susan’s son.

I met Tom earlier this year at the USATN where I roomed with him. He was one of the nicest people you could ever meet.

During the few days that we hung out we talked a lot about chess and goals and he made it clear to me that his goal was to ensure that the Polgar family gained another GM.

So far he’s having a nice tournament with a 2453 performance rating going 3.5-2.5 through the first six rounds.

Here’s his game against Dvoirys.

Tomorrow he plays Ukrainian FM Yevgeniy Roshka. I’ll keep an eye on the last three rounds and you should too!

Korchnoi-Sax 1991 Candidates Match

For our next series of Games of the Day, let’s take a look at what a 60 year old Viktor Korchnoi was able to do in his 1991 Candidates Match with Hungarian Legend Gyula Sax.

For some backstory into this match take a listen to Ben Johnson’s most recent episode of Perpetual Chess where he interviews legendary GM Vladimir Tukmakov, who speaks about his work in this match.

You can find that here.

As for the games, let’s get started. As you will see, age does not have to be a barrier as long as love for the game remains strong.
