1992 Women's World Rapid and Blitz Championship

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

This record only counts if you're Norwegian. If you're not Norwegian, it should be deleted.

I smell some jealousy in the air lol Would you believe Susan Polgar is the first person to hold the Triple Crown - Women World Standard, Rapid & Blitz Title all at the same time and Magnus Carlsen is the second person but the first men to achieved the Triple Crown. While Nakamura still languishing and just dreaming of holding the Triple Crown lol
