Garry Kasparov and Scott Frank Visit Girls Club Room to discuss The Queen's Gambit [VIDEO]

As the press and accolades for the Queen's Gambit continues to boom, 13th World Champion Garry Kasparov paid our Girls Club Room a special visit to discuss his work consulting on the hit Netflix series. He explains how he selected games for critical scenes, and re-imagined them with the help of AI to match Beth Harmon's brilliant wits.

Director and co-creator Scott Frank also visited, and he talked about his inspiration for the project, how he got involved with Garry and his aesthetic concept for the series. This series contains mature content though this video only contains chess related excerpts. This video contains spoilers for The Queen's Gambit.

More details on the chess behind the series can be found in Bruce Pandolfini's cover story.

Check out this New York Times article for more information on Garry Kasparov's involvement in the ground-breaking series and a more recent article featuring Judit Polgar's thoughts on it, as well as a nice reference to our work at US Chess Women.
