Polgar Chess Festival 2013

Today was a big day for chess culture in Budapest. The annual Polgar sisters-Aquaprofit chess festival took place, featuring all three Polgar sisters and special guest, Ex-World Champion Kasparov.

I managed to see the tail-end of the event and witnessed Judit’s simul. Here are some pictures by Eniko Szakacs(big thanks!).
