Jun-19-17  nok: <CG has made the effort to correct an obvious (?) blunder: no Women's games?>

The games of the women who play the main event can be found here: World Team Chess Championship (2017). This seems to be a segregated side event.

Jun-20-17  Octavia: <segregated> sounds kind of sad. But as long as there aren't 50% in the top 100 it's fair to give women a chance to improve together!

Have you ever noticed how chess can attract women to look after aspiring kids (mainly boys), look after the catering, field arbiters etc? But when you count how many play chess that's not so good!

Yes, I hate it when people do what they like, rather than what I like.

Jun-21-17  stst: In today's Tan v Gunay, the final position looks all White, but a closer look simplifies to K+N v K, and this is quite a dead end leading to stalemate, or, the sole K just wander around. Hence 1/2 each.... What a ??

While this places them in third place, they are still a margin away from the two leaders <Russia and Ukraine.> <China> faltered once again, and were unable to overcome <Azerbaijan.>

  alexmagnus: But the existence of women's competitions is one of the reasons why there are so few women in the top 100! There is no motivation to improve upon reaching the "female top", as male top is far, far away. And male second/third tier gets less money than female top.

  alexmagnus: As for "mainly boys", that's wrong. As I already pointed out numerous times, best pre-teen girls in chess are not worse than best boys the same age. Only after reaching the teenage years they start to drift apart.
Jun-21-17  nok: In my experience, people do what they're used to, more than what they like.

I doubt that's any more true in chess than it is tennis. The presence of female-only prizes probably gets a somewhat greater number of women to compete in chess than otherwise would, but the financial rewards of chess are quite meager, for men and women both! You learn the game, and you are either one of those few who get infected by the virus, as Tal put it, or you are one of the great majority who don't. And if your infection is strong, you spend as much time and effort on chess as your your life allows -- sometimes more. Financial incentives have very little impact.

Even in a relatively rich sport like tennis, hardly anybody gets into it for the money.

Are you saying there is an equal number of prepubescent girls and boys playing chess?

Jun-21-17  nok: <if your infection is strong, you spend as much time and effort on chess as your your life allows -- sometimes more. Financial incentives have very little impact.>

That's an idealistic view; I've seen many do the extra mile of work to get the FM title so they wouldn't pay entry fees.

I think you and I define <idealistic> differently. Putting that aside, if you are right -- and I'm sure you're more plugged in to current competitive chess than I am -- (i) the phenomenon you describe affects existing chess players, rather than making new ones (ii) it would promote, rather than retard, female participation in competitive chess, because with a separate, lower standard, they could obtain an exemption more easily than men.

Jun-21-17  nok: Your points seem contradictory. If unequal rewards don't make new chess players, they can't increase female participation. They just set an expectation level.

Yeah, I don't think unequal rewards really affect participation levels. For the second point, I should have said, <To the extent there is any effect...>

  alexmagnus: <Are you saying there is an equal number of prepubescent girls and boys playing chess?>

Fewer, but with an equal top. Chess is a choice - and while boys choose it even if they are bad at it, girls are more likely to choose it if they are good at it. As for the top being equal, just look at the competitions at the respective age groups.

I've seen that claimed, but since so many claims of that sort turn out to be nonsense, I assume it isn't true.

Even if it is true -- at one time Judit Polgar had the distinction of being the highest-rated 12-year-old of all time. For all I know she still holds the record. But at higher ages the boys take all the top spots. Isn't it likely that Kasparov, Kramnik et al. just matured later, as boys are wont to do?

<Chess is a choice - and while boys choose it even if they are bad at it, girls are more likely to choose it if they are good at it. As for the top being equal, just look at the competitions at the respective age groups.>

Data?

Also, if boys are more likely to choose chess, and girls are less likely, why don't we respect their choices? Chess isn't law, or medicine, or business. It isn't a path to wealth, power, or prestige. Why do we care who plays it?

Jun-22-17

  alexmagnus: Well, you brought an example of Polgar as one example of such "data" of pre-teen girls who are very good. Some other examples: Lagno (third best 13-year-old ever according to Chessmetrics), Humpy, Hou (when Hou became GM, she was the youngest one of the moment). Goryachkina (remember - when she was 14, many criticized her for playing in Girls U18 and not Boys U14, though she had medal chances in both).

Well, you can actually take most of the women's top list and look where they were at their 13th birthday. Most you will find surprisingly high given where they landed as adults.

In Germany U10 and U12 national championships are played without separation of genders (the prizes are separated, but they play in the same tournament), and it occured already many times that those were won by girls.

  alexmagnus: <Lagno (third best 13-year-old ever according to Chessmetrics),>

Fifth best, sorry. Though I remember her being third or fourth - maybe Carlsen was included later than I saw that list. Number 1 is Polgar by the way

  alexmagnus: By the way, of 88 players on that Chessmetrics list at least 9 were girls. At least because I may have overlooked someone.
Jun-24-17  paavoh: The intellectual level of discussion seems better in this forum than in the Men's section ;-)
Jun-26-17  siamesedream: Congratulations to medalists.
Jul-04-17  sonia91: Russia won this event for the first time. Silver goes to China, bronze to 2015 winners Georgia.
