Das Spiel der Königin: Jede Schachposition

There’s no doubt about it: „The Queen’s Gambit“ is a huge hit. With incredible performances by the actors, beautiful sets, and a well-constructed plot, it’s no wonder the miniseries is so successful. With 68 million households watching the show in the first 28 days after its release, it’s obvious you don’t need to be a chess player to love it.

However, as a chess enthusiast myself, I have to admit I do think chess players enjoy the show on a higher level.

I got very excited when the actors played opening moves accurately, and I almost fell out of my chair when I saw Beth impersonating Paul Morphy and replaying the Opera Game!
