The youngest of the three Polgar sisters, Judit Polgar was a chess prodigy. Her father Laszlo Polgar was an educator who believed that any child could be taught to excel in any field through proper instruction. He proved his thesis by priming his three daughters to become top chess players. Judit Polgar learned from her father and sisters and was awarded the grandmaster title at the age of 15 years and four months, replacing Bobby Fischer as the youngest grandmaster in chess history.

Judit Polgar became the best female player in the history of chess and was the first woman to achieve a rating above 2700. Polgar played in many top tournaments and was a dangerous opponent for the top male players. She even beat Garry Kasparov once. At the zenith of her ability, Judit Polgar belonged to the top ten in the world and played for the absolute world championship. After the Chess Olympiad in Tromso (2014) she retired from tournament chess. Judit Polgar cultivated an aggressive tactical attacking style and won many of her games through brilliant combinations. Today she promotes chess as a chess ambassador and organizes an annual chess festival in Budapest.
