My BBC Interview (January 21, 2020)


Released On: 21 Jan 2020

Is a genius born or made? Susan Polgar’s psychologist father had a theory that he wanted to test, and he chose to experiment on his daughter. He instructed her how to play chess from an early age, and by the time she was 15 Susan was the best female chess player in the world. By 21 she was a grandmaster. She tells Jo Fidgen how she defied those who told her she couldn’t compete with men.
