“Notions of chess have been shattered by a teenage Hungarian girl – some call her modest and soft-spoken, but many opponents know her as a ferocious tiger over the board – who after years of steady progress began breathing down the necks of the top men and now has broken the barrier of one of the world’s most exclusive clubs: she has earned the rank of Grandmaster at 15 years and 5 months, one month younger than Bobby Fischer when he did it 34 years ago.”
New York Times, 1992
