Judit Polgar

Judit Polgar Teaches Chess 1

Sample pages (pdf)

Judit Polgar earned the rank of Grandmaster at 15 years, one month younger than Bobby Fischer when he did it 34 years earlier.
Great achievements often take a lifetime of preparation, but when these achievements are becoming the World Number 1 at the age of 12 and the youngest ever Grandmaster at the age of 15 you have to start early! In this very personal book Judit Polgar describes her early moments of success and the chess ideas she needed to master to achieve them.

Judit has structured the book to be a manual for improving players rather than just a collection of her games. With this in mind the chapters are structured to teach different aspects of chess strategy and tactics using Judit's games as examples. Many of the games included here have not been published before, including training games against coaches and sparring partners.

This volume covers the period from her early years upto 1991 when, at the age of 15 years, 4 months and 28 days she became the youngest ever chess Grandmaster.
This exceptional book is the beginning of a unique project where one of the greatest players of our time transforms her personal journey to the top into a roadmap for everyone who ever wanted to better themselves in the game of chess.

Judit Polgar has been ranked 1st on the Women's rating list from 1988 to this day. In 2005 she became the only woman in chess history to participate in the World Championship final.

Published 2012, hardback, 384 pages.
