Alexey Shirov vs Judit Polgar

Sicilian Defense, Paulsen. Normal Variation

The TV series “Queen’s Gambit” has recently hit Netflix and caused quite the buzz. The story is centered around the American chess prodigy Beth Harmon during the Cold War era. The “Queen’s Gambit” has brought a lot of attention to women who play chess and with that in mind I thought it would be nice to highlight an incredible game played by Judit Polgar. Judit at her peak was one of the best players in the world and also one of the deadliest when given attacking chances. In this game she squares off against Alexei Shirov who is also known to be one of the most aggressive chess players in the world. The chess world was always in store for something great when these two players faced off and this game did not disappoint.
