Cool Chess Video: Judit Polgar Giving a Hard Time to Magnus Carlsen in Mexico

Posted by World Chess Championship 2013 News Blog Friday, September 13, 2013

The 2nd Gran Fiesta UNAM Chess festival took place from 16-25 November, 2012 in Mexico City. The festival comprised a number of competitions, but the highlight was the Judit Polgar and Magnus Carlsen match. Carlsen and Polgar had eliminated Lazaro Bruzon and Manuel Leon Hoyos in the qualifying rounds en route to the final, but the world #1 didn't have things all his own way. Judit Polgar won the first game, beating Magnus Carlsen with black in their rapid clash, but Carlsen hit back to win the second encounter which was played blindfolded. That meant blitz tie-breaks games were needed, and Carlsen won both games convincingly to take victory overall. Enjoy the video from the official chess channel of the Chess World No. 1 among women, Judit Polgar.
