I have question on men and girls chess?

#48 Why do you believe are women biologically inferior at chess?

Pretty obvious it's due to a combination of men generally being more interested in these sort of hobbies which results in more male players at the top level, as well as men's brains being better-wired for competitive, nerdy activities—again, on average.

There's nothing really more to say, this question isn't even that interesting

@Toadofsky for the same reason I believe women are inferior in tennis. I look at the results and the fact that on the top level women cannot compete with men. I am not interested in ideologies and I am not a sexist. I just see the facts and state the obvious.

#55 Facts, you say... the obvious, you say...

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judit_Polgar

Judit Polgár (born 23 July 1976) is a Hungarian chess grandmaster. She is generally considered the strongest female chess player of all time. Since September 2015, she has been inactive. In 1991, Polgár achieved the title of Grandmaster at the age of 15 years and 4 months, at the time the youngest to have done so, breaking the record previously held by former World Champion Bobby Fischer. She was the youngest ever player to break into the FIDE Top 100 players rating list, ranking No. 55 in the January 1989 rating list, at the age of 12. She is the only woman to qualify for a World Championship tournament, having done so in 2005. She is the first, and to date only, woman to have surpassed 2700 Elo, reaching a career peak rating of 2735 and peak world ranking of No. 8, both achieved in 2005. She was the No. 1 rated woman in the world from January 1989 until the March 2015 rating list, when she was overtaken by Chinese player Hou Yifan; she was the No. 1 again in the August 2015 women's rating list, in her last appearance in the FIDE World Rankings.

She has won or shared first in the chess tournaments of Hastings 1993, Madrid 1994, León 1996, U.S. Open 1998, Hoogeveen 1999, Sigeman & Co 2000, Japfa 2000, and the Najdorf Memorial 2000.

Polgár is the only woman to have won a game against a reigning world number one player, and has defeated eleven current or former world champions in either rapid or classical chess: Magnus Carlsen, Anatoly Karpov, Garry Kasparov, Vladimir Kramnik, Boris Spassky, Vasily Smyslov, Veselin Topalov, Viswanathan Anand, Ruslan Ponomariov, Alexander Khalifman, and Rustam Kasimdzhanov.

@Toadofsky there are always exceptions, of course. There were, are and always will be extraordinary women who can compete with men in disciplines which are male-dominant. Some top female tennis players could from time to time beat some top male tennis players. But still the fact remains that in general women cannot compete with men in tennis, and therefore we have female tennis where women compete with each other. The same thing is in chess.

#58 What you are stating as a fact is in fact a conclusion.

In tennis there are measurable anatomical differences such as grip strength, body dimension, etc. which support a conclusion (logical or otherwise). In chess I don't know what facts would support a biological claim that women cannot compete with men.

One exception in a man vs woman tennis match, was the match between Billy Jean King and Bobby Riggs. Dubbed the "battle of the sexes", it was the most watched tennis match ever. King won the match, but it must be said that Riggs was an old man well past his prime. It was very entertaining. :]
