What if a girl became World Chess Champion?

    I stand corrected. Short played one-on-one with the title holder, whereas Polgar played in an all-play-all 8-person tournament, finishing last with one win in fourteen games.

    I'm so old that I remember when the FIDE World Championship was the one and only. Not any more. Kramnik sat that one out and beat the winner a year later. (Had Kramnik accepted his invitation in 2005, Polgar would not have been there.)

    That's not a real world championship any more than the "FIDE World Championship" knockout tournaments that Khalifman, Kazimdzhanov, etc., won were.  This was, however, effectively a candidates' tournament, and Judit Polgar is still the only woman to play in one of those.

    Botvinnik won his FIDE title in a quintuple round-robin tournament in 1948.

    There is considerable evidence that the competion was tainted by Soviet collusion.

    That is your opinion, not one held by FIDE.

    It is a thought for sure...however, no female GM that I know of, at least, has EVER been rated even nearly as high as the top ten men in the world. I could be wrong, but I think I'm pretty close. Maybe some day it will be! ;)
