This week’s guest on the Chess.fm internet radio show “Chess and Books with Fred Wilson” will be the former Women’s World Chess Champion, GM SUSAN POLGAR.
The show runs from 8:00 to 10:00 PM (EST) every Tuesday evening. As always, there will be replays of the show almost immediately afterwards for our chess enthusiasts on the West Coast & elsewhere, and often there will be several replays the following day.
Fred Wilson’s guest on Tuesday evening, Oct. 10th, 2006, will be former Women’s World Chess Champion GM SUSAN POLGAR. Susan, who last year led the US Women’s Olympic chess team to it’s best ever finish, a Silver Medal, even defeating the Gold Medal Chinese team in the process, currently holds the record for having played 56 consecutive Olympiad games without a single loss!
Susan will discuss her two most recent successes as a player, winning the Women’s World Chess Cup in Dresden, Germany in July and her exciting second place finish at the New York City Mayor’s Cup, a double round tournament (G/25+5), just 1/2 point behind GM Kamsky, but ahead of GM’s Onischuk, Gulko, Ibragimov and Stripunsky.
She will also describe the tremendous response she is receiving from her daily coverage of the wild Topalov-Kramnik World Championship Match at her terrific interactive “blogsite“, on which visitors can make comments or ask questions to which Susan herself will often respond.
