Polgar Fans Hey Polgar fans: Judit Polgar is involved in a match with Boris Gelfland in Hungary. I believe it's an eight game match, 25 minutes per. Each player has won a game so far (1-1).

polgar info I found the info on Gene Venable's column, found on www.chess.fm/. The address given is a Hungarian site, but you can figure out that kozvetites must mean games by clicking around.

A sad day A sad day in Polgar Land. Judit has struck out, losing an eight game rapid match to Boris Gelfand. Despite her superior FIDE rating Judit was crushed by the Israeli grandmaster in Hungary. The sisters are usually very good in rapid play and their combinative style lends itself to this kind of match, so I don't know what happened.
