.... "Women tend to not succeed in chess for various reasons. They do not believe in killing their father or many other types of violence" bla bla bla
That's the theory....lol I never said it was true
Besides, anyone can be good at chess. Any type of race, age, or gender. It doesn't matter, you just got to be intelligent I guess. Oh and by the way....what's OTB?

OTB is Over The Board i believe. If not, i have been mistaken for some time.

Or it could be On The Booze.

Society plays a big part as who succeeds in games and sports. People put money and support into who they think will succeed. For chess it is just a matter of numbers, if as many Women played chess as Men (and kept playing), I think the top players list could be very different. Why do more men play than women, because chess it thought to be a male dominated sport.

I never had anything interesting to talk about in the first place.

Over the board? And I've been wasting all my chess tournament money at the Off Track Betting place. Dang it.

Tulkos: No, you are not mistaken. I wonder how this could have happened?

men Vs women there are a lot of differences between men and women. both are equal, but both are different. for instance, i was in the top set english class last year (*smiles smugly*) with 3 other guys. the other 26 people were female...also-females peak earlier than men, but a lot of the time men's peak's are, well, "higher" than womens (on average...:p). and no, i'm not anti-feminist, i just hate it when women complain that they don't get to do something because they're incapable, but claim it's because they're female...
