Have any of you ever heard or saw The Queen's Gambit on Netflix or on TV?

I am watching it now. Have any of you had any interest in mastering the game of chess? Do you play it for fun? I think she is about 13 years old and is very very good at it. I have never learned how to play chess and sometimes wondered if I would be any good at it. How many of you play? I have played checkers but never chess.

@Hannihar Not as often as I'd like. My husband isn't as good as I am, so it's a bit of a challenge for him and boring for me.

I have come across the title but not seen it. My husband pays very good chess with my elder daughter. I know the game but not much interested in it. My brother played it till national level in his High school.

@arunima25 That is really cool about your husband and elder daughter. That is impressive about your brother. Why didn't your brother continue?

@Hannihar After going to engineering college he couldn't find time to pursue it professionally. But even now he always plays ( many a times alone) in his free time.
