Queen’s Gambit

A new Netflix new mini series, gets very good reviews: here is 后翼弃兵. Queen’s gambit (or Aleppo Gambit ) is one of the openings in chess, starts with

The 7-episode series has very good acting: many chess moves were accompanied by their facial expression – for the non players to enjoy, and the story is gripping.

However, as I was watching, I wondered, is Beth Harmon (played by Anya Taylor-Joy) doing girls/women a service or disservice, because there is never a female world champion.

Here are some facts:

Rank 1-year peak 20-year peak
1 Bobby Fischer 2881 Garry Kasparov  2856
2 Garry Kasparov 2879 Anatoly Karpov 2818
3 Mikhail Botvinnik 2871 Emanuel Lasker 2809
4 José Capablanca 2866 Alexander Alekhine 2781

The strongest female player in the world is Judit Polgár (1976-), the youngest of Polgár sisters from Hungary. Her peak rating was 2735 in July 2005. (Alexander Alekhine passed away 1946 at age of 53.) Judit did beat Garry Kasparov once in 2002 but the world chess championship in 2018 played 12 games. I love to see women to succeed and by far they do, in many fields – the latest is Kim Ng becomes Miami Marlines’ general manager – first girl boss in the major league (!!!), but dislike cheesy way: hit like a man, please.

By the way, with the absence of Judit Polgár, China produced a few lady champs.

Also, watching this mini series, I can’t stop thinking about Bobby Fischer (1943-2008) … don’t get me start …

奈飞的新迷你剧集获得了很好的评价, 包括 后翼弃兵. 后翼弃兵是封闭性开场白之一, 步法是这个样子

七集系列的演技非常出色, 许多棋步都伴随着他们的面部表情-非玩家可以欣赏, 而且故事令人着迷. 但是, 我在想, 贝丝·哈蒙 Beth Harmon (由安雅·泰勒·乔伊 Anya Taylor-Joy 饰演) 是为女孩/妇女提供服务还是造成阴影,因为从来没有女性世界冠军.

世界上最强的女选手是 朱迪 Judit Polgár(1976- ), 她是匈牙利最年轻的Polgár姐妹. 她在2005年7月的最高评分是2735. (亚历山大·阿莱欣Alexander Alekhine 在1946年去世, 享年53岁.) 朱迪在2002年曾击败加里·卡斯帕罗夫 Garry Kasparov, 但在2018年的世界象棋锦标赛上需要打12场.  女性到目前为止, 她们在许多领域都取得了成功-最近是伍金 Kim Ng 成为迈阿密 棒球 Miami Marlines 总经理, 所有大联盟的第一任女老板(!!!), 但不喜欢俗气 的方式: 拜托.

中国女娃们赢了好几个妇女🏆 是因为朱迪没有参加 – 她不肖; 一直在将男人的军 [偷笑]

Since I’m on chess, thought about rage quit, which suits the current situation …

🐴 愤怒退出 (?) … 象棋术语.

九十年代初 追🇭🇺小姑娘 Judit Polgár 到维也纳… 一睹风采之余 也听到好多八卦. 比如Garry Kasparov 加里·卡斯帕罗夫的愤怒退出…

一次去林肯音乐会 被朋友约去Shun Lee 晚饭 东西不好吃
低情商问 “这里有什么好呀?”
朋友曰 “卡斯帕罗夫最喜欢的餐馆.”
不然说不定本来想着评2颗星 …变零星了
