    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.

    Elisabeth Paehtz, and her dad?

    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.
