Women’s World Rapid Championship 1992 with Judit Polgar, Sofia Polgar, Chiburdanidze, Maric, Galliamova, and most top women players in the world. It was held at a very prestigious venue in Budapest, Hungary. This was a 15 round Swiss system. Judit was already better than me at this time, as she was ranked #1 in the world, while I was #2.

Women’s World Blitz Championship 1992 with Judit Polgar, Sofia Polgar, Chiburdanidze, Maric, Galliamova, and most top women players in the world. It was held at a very prestigious venue in Budapest, Hungary. This was played under the old format of 27 player round robin event. 


I won both events clear first, while Judit finished 2nd in one, and Sofia finished 2nd in the other.

Special fun fact: The little girl I was holding in the picture is Melody Amber. The prestigious Melody Amber event, which used to be held in some of the most impressive venues in the world in Monaco, was actually named after her.

And this Women’s World Championship made it the Triple Crown
