Blitz chess on live TV! The year is 1992 and the chess prodigy GM Judit Polgar, only 16 years old at the time, took on GM Ron Henley, a clash of different playing styles that lead to an exciting game. Polgar had become the youngest GM in history just one year earlier.

Judit Polgar plays fast, aggressive, attacking blitz chess, while Ron Henley takes a more solid, positional approach looking to slowly squeeze the opponent – the complete opposite of each other! Looking on and commentating are the popular Maurice Ashley and John Fedorowicz.

This blitz chess game opened with 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 – the Scotch Opening. Polgar tries to attack the black king immediately, deploying her bishops with 11. Bh4 and 14. Bh5. This proved somewhat superficial, however, as Ron Henley continued to play persistently and actively in the center.

With 19. f4, Polgar opened up the dangerous a7-h1 diagonal for the black bishop on c5, and after 23. …Qxe4 24. b3? Qf5 black was threatening mate with the simple but effective 25. …Qh5 (24. Qd3 would have been better for White, although black would still have retained a very strong initiative). White was forced to shed a pawn to defend mate with 25. g4 and then another pawn to defend mate again with 27. Qf3 Qh4+ 28. Qh3 Qxh3+ 29. gxh3 Rxc2.

Despite Black being two pawns up and with superior piece activity, the game isn’t over. Maurice Ashley explains that often in blitz chess, the clock plays an important factor. Judit Polgar had built up a huge time advantage in this 5-minute game. Did Ron Henley manage convert the winning position in time, or did Judit Polgar take advantage of that extra time at hand? You’ll have to watch the video to find out!
