I am certain you will all be interested in the following.
There will be an historic clash at the Tradewise Gibraltar Chess Masters in Round 7 on 30
January 2012 at the Caleta Hotel starting 3pm today (Gibraltar time).
Women’s World Champion Yifan Hou (China) rated 2605 will play white against Judit Polgar (Hungary) 2710, the highest-ever rated woman player in the history of the game.
They have never previously met as Judit doesn’t play in women only events and it is some years since she played in an open tournament. Both players have 4.5/6.
We will have pictures available as soon after the start as possible.
