|Judit Polgar, 2009 Hoogeveen v. Anish Giri|
Judit has an excellent record at the Hoogeveen:
1997 - finished in 2nd
1998 - finished in 1st
1999 - finished in 2nd
2000 - finished in 4th (In 2000 FIDE World Champion Alexander Khalifman took 1st place. Judit had been outscored by Khalifman in the 1999 FIDE Knock-Out World Championship in the quarter-finals. Judit went home and Kahlifman went on to eventually become Champion after defeating Vladimir Akopian.)
2001 - finished in 1st
2002 - finished in 3rd (Khalifman finished in 2nd place)
2003 - finished in 1st
2006 - finished in 2nd
2009 - finished in 4th. Judit played a particularly tough field that year and only 1 point separated the top and bottom places!
So, I will have to wait all summer before the action begins.
