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!

Til Next Time,
