Chess Player Challenged

November 20, 1987

The reason for the put-down of women chess players in the article about Yasser Seirawan is because men cannot take the pain of losing to a woman.

I play chess a few times a week. I do not win often, but when I do win I win three games in a row--simply because at the first loss the man is so traumatized he cannot concentrate and so I win two more games.
