Well, Judit Polgar certainly has "brains", but I don't know that Karpov
qualifies for the "beauty" part...

This is great news, if true. I do, however, have a MAJOR reservation. By
referring to the match as "brains vs beauty", the implication is that Ms.
Polgar lacks the former. Of course, all of us on this forum know better,
and I'm confident the rest of the world will soon find out, as well.

I agree, and also feels that it harkens back to the recent controversy
where the Chess Life editor referred (I'm paraphrasing) to most men
playing chess as geeks while many women playing chess were good-looking.
I don't have a problem pointing out a chessplayers good looks
(although beauty is in the eye of the beholder), but as Bill points out,
it appears that we are emphasizing that chessplayers beauty over their
brains.

When was she women's world champion? I thought she didn't take part in
women's events - or am I getting the sisters mixed up?

Even worse is the implication that she has the latter!
