Going to interview Zhansaya Abdumalik soon, don't want it to be too boring, please can people give me ideas for chess related questions, rather than just things about her, which I have already got more than enough of.
Is she a 'woman' gm or 'men' gm? I think the difference is women can get the gm rating with the playing skill of IM, something like that.
I would ask her if she ever plays gambits, Kings Gambit, Scandanavian, Benko Gambit, and the like.
Ah, her present rating is 2369, with title of woman's GM. She is #92 on the top 100 ratings for women. For comparison, the top two are Judit Polgar at 2675 and #2 Hou, Yifan, at 2673. Judit has been as high as #14 on the overall list at her peak, her rating was around 2740. She beat a lot of men players including Kasparov.
