Chess Champion Polgar Sisters to Play again Together
    2007-06-23 08:19:19     Xinhua
After a 10-year interval, the chess Olympic champion Polgar sisters - Zsuzsa, Zsofia and Judit -will once again play together in a simultaneous chess exhibition in Budapest on Sunday, local media reported.
  
Judit agreed to play 34 games while her elder sisters will meet 33 opponents each in the Corinthia Grand Hotel, starting at 1500 hours local time.
  
Meanwhile, members of the U.S. Olympic team, for which Zsuzsa played in the last Olympics, will play 30-minute rapid games with young Hungarian talents during the meet.
  
The Polgar trio triumphed in two chess Olympics, winning in Thessaloniki in 1988 and in Novi Sad two years later. Each of the three has two children, with Zsuzsa living in the United States, Zsofia in Canada and Judit in Budapest.
  
Judit is way out ahead in first place on the women's world ranking list and is 13th on the men's global list.
