Understanding Middlegame Strategies Vol.3 – The Hedgehog
Throughout my playing career I have found the Hedgehog one of the most difficult type of positions to master. The basic aim of this video is to improve understanding of these complex positions and to help tournament players score better.

Judit Polgár, the best female chess player of all time, and the Hungarian Pavilion of Dubai Expo 2020 joint action “Judit Polgár vs The World”, the world’s first interactive community chess simul, strengthen and put this togetherness into a new context. 
On 20 March, Judit Polgár and the Hungarian Pavilion at Dubai Expo 2020 will host a global and integrated social event where millions of people will virtually sit down and play – live – against a single player. During the 11-board online simul, Judit Polgár faces ten influencers with a total of 6 million followers, and virtually the world on the “world board”. In the influencers’ section, among others, Judit will play with a children’s community on one board, and in line with the International Chess Federation’s (FIDE) “2022 – Year of Women” initiative, members of a women’s community on another.
Arkady Dvorkovich, the President of FIDE acknowledges: “This event can be regarded as a milestone in the global promotion of chess, offering a unique experience to a record number of participants thanks to its innovative and brand new format. I am curious of the final result, but even more so eager to enjoy the sportive tension and excitement that will be in the air while the world will be challenging the legendary chess queen Judit.”
“I am extremely excited for this challenge and inclusive social event as Chess Connects Us in the virtual universe”, admits Judit.
The influencers will make their moves after consulting with their followers.
