More women in chess! Yes….no doubt about it… With the multi-tasking skills we are so capable of performing admirably, chess is right up our alley. I’ve often wondered why is this. I really love it when I see an article about young women excelling in the game …
You might ask “do you play?” Yes, I do – but badly. Very badly. What I enjoy about the game is the stories I hear during a chess tournament (yes, I am a club tournament director – and a darn good one at that). Even though the chess players know I play very little, several will come over to the counter and relate the position that lost their game. I love it!
I would like to play better – but please, please – I don’t know if I’ll ever get to the stage of “oh yes, let’s analyze this game for the next three hours”.
So – more women in chess! I think you’ll enjoy the photos of these young girls on their way to excelling in chess….Just wish there was a little more to the story! What prompted them to play chess? What is it about the game that evokes the passion? Oh well …. enjoy !
