  HeMateMe: Judit beat Nigel Short 8-3, with 5 draws. Here's an exciting attacking game.

<Women aren't smart enough to play chess because the game requires logical thinking, says British grandmaster>

<Female chess players reacted angrily to Mr Short’s statements last night>

<Nigel Short, 49, said women were not suited to playing chess because it required logical thinking.>

<”I don’t have the slightest problem in acknowledging that my wife [Rea] possesses a much higher degree of emotional intelligence than I do. Likewise, she doesn’t feel embarrassed in asking me to manoeuvre the car out of our narrow garage.”>

lol

<Amanda Ross, the leader of the Casual Chess club in London, told The Daily Telegraph the comments were ‘incredibly damaging when someone so respected basically endorses sexism’.

She added: ‘Judit Polgar, the former women’s world champion, beat Nigel Short eight classical games to three in total, with five draws.

‘She must have brought her man brain.'

‘Let’s just hope Nigel didn’t crash his car on those days, trying to park it.'>

heh heh

  offramp: <optimal play>, I don't see how it is endorsing sexism to say that his wife asked him to get the car out of the garage. What is Ross going on about?
