    BradStone, if I weren't convinced that you are either trolling, or attached to an incredibly simpleminded, negative bias, I would give you plenty of reasonable arguments. I am done responding to you. It's a shame you are so ignorant or craving of attention that you have gone into a thread about chess player movie ideas and claimed so vehemently that there is no good reason to make a movie about chess players. And on a chess forum.

    Given that it seems that he isn't trolling, he is certainly not worth responding to.

    Eh, who really cares.  There should be mandatory "reality checks" for most chess players to give them some perspective in life.

    To wit:  Chess isn't nearly as popular or important as 99% of the people here seem to think it is.

    you're right. If you want to participate in a site where many people agree with you, I can suggest archiecomics.com or fredflintstone.com. You will likely find many people more your taste there. I invite you to those sites.

    Movie about a chess player?

    First choice would be Pachman.

    Second is the Sarwer siblings.

    Third would be the Polgars.

    Good point.  I think a good movie would be one not specifically about Najdorf, but instead one that follows several players who were at the 8th Chess Olympiad and their decisions whether to return home or not.

    I find it interesting that I clearly cannot see what most guys seem to see.  In spite of her modeling aspirations, I've always considered Konstenuik rather ordinary in appearance.

    I'm a guy and I think Kosteniuk is attractive and pleasant to look at but there's nothing "special" about her looks. She's an average good looking woman. If she didn't play chess most guys would not be interested in her

    Attractve in the normal range.

    The thing is, when an attractive female is on the tournament floor, it's like having a 2-headed sasquatch walk in--for those more closeted types.

    shes kinda hot for a chess player....the same phenomena occurs with sarah palin...shes kinda hot for her station...their not ugliness is somehow amplified by the lack of other acctactive women around them making them seem beautiful. thats not to say that there are not attractive women chess players, in fact i consider many of the top women players to be quite fetching, just a lack of "classicaly" beautiful women by pop culture standards. so the chess marketing people, in order to make their product seem sexy, pitch Kosteniuk (and irna krush and jennifer shade etc) as stereotypical "empowered but hot" women...

    2, Akiba Rubinstein was the top challenger to WC Emanual Lasker before WWI. A match never took place because of the war, and Rubinstein descended into madness. If someone came to visit, he wouls welcome that person, excuse himself and escape out a back window. He was notoriously late for his games, but he could beat vurtually anyone with only 30 minutes on his clock.

    That's not mad.  Everybody has done that, haven't they?
