Nf3 Nc6 with 3. d4 – the Scotch Opening. Judit Polgar tried to attack the black king immediately, however her bishop deployments 11. Bh4 and 14. Bh5 proved superficial as GM Henley continued to play persistently and actively in the center. With 19. f4 GM 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 (better for white was 24. Qd3, although black would retain a very strong initiative). White was forced to shed one pawn to defend mate with 25. g4 and another pawn to defend mate again with 27. Qf3 Qh4+ 28. Qh3 Qxh3+ 29. gxh3 Rxc2 – leaving black two pawns up and with superior piece activity. Although Judit Polgar had built up a huge advantage on the clock in this 5-minute game, GM Henley was able to control his nerves and convert the win in convincing fashion.
