This is my husband's opinion (sitting next to me) less jerks = more women playing chess. hahahahahahahahaha I think I know why he thinks that way. Last time we went to a tournament I received comments like "you really play chess??" forgot to mention the stupid look on their face too!. I think some people need to realize chess is for young, old, men and women. Also, early introduction of chess in schools would help. Chess is amazing
Women are either fascinated by chess, or driven enough to learn despite not being given enough special privleges. If it's both, they're playing already. If not, then they wouldn't be playing.
Do we really want more entitled women in chess?
Exactly. We already give out fake titles to reward mediocre play, what more do we need? Just start giving out the WGM title to anyone who reaches 1400?
a woman beside me said: we already have more woman than men at chess - because the metamorphose beeings who look like if they could have been men dont count really.
Your contribution to this thread has been "hahahahhahah" and your husband's opinion. That says a lot.
Introduction of chess in schools would further the gap even more because women don't like chess. It'd just get more male players.
1400 might be a bit difficult for them, I picked up chess mid last month and I'm barely 1420 :(
pearl in your local schools we dont have woman but girls and the number of girls playing chess is equal to the number of boys playing chess. - do you dont have chess on school in usa??????????
In my local schools you don't have women but girls and the number of girls so chess on school in USA!!!!!!!!!
this: "In my local schools you don't have women but girls and the number of girls so chess on school in USA!!!!!!!!!" makes no sense - syntax error
This is my world, and you're living in it.
I read it like "So Chess On !"....u know - kinda like at a high school pep rally.
this as well - it has many interpretation.
The more women masters marry MEN masters
followed by having WOMEN children
the more women masters there will be.
The problem is that there are very few women with the real GM title. Judit and her kin will be very overworked.
not quite true.
They'd still be overworked. We'd have to retire the FGMs for a decade and have each of them pump out 10 prodigies. When they're not giving birth, they're teaching the children the skills they need to excel at chess.
No ugly men or women, though.
....there's always botox, skin-snugging, and tummy-tucking and stuff like that.
yes - since the mill age came up with internet, obviously the fake-age is rising up now.
Ben finegold also comes from a family of chess masters, chess definetly runs in the family (to a certain extent)!
It "runs in the family" in that you have exposure to the game from a young age with a great teacher. Sunil Weeramntry is not genetically related to his stepson, but that child obviously benefited by growing up with such a great chess writer/teacher.
chess nature+chess nurture=chess master
