    Black to play and win


    The person playing the White side in this game is in the top ten on RHP and a genuinely strong OTB player. Unfortunately in this game he was duffed up by a sixteen year old girl.

    If 2.Re1 Qd4+ wins a piece.
    Not 4.Kxg2 Qf1#
    4...Rf1+ wins a Rook.

    I don't know what's worse, losing to a girl, or losing to a kid.

    Definitely losing to a girl. Nothing wrong with losing to a grown up woman - I've lost to plenty of them, but young girls who take chess seriously tend to be very tactical so you're only a move away from disaster.

    In a blitz tournament a few years ago I was getting completely outplayed by a tiny chinese girl who was eight years old at the time. She was a minute up on the clock as well. Then I played a desperado check and she moved her king onto a square which I was attacking. I immediately claimed a win because she had made an illegal move. The look she gave me made me very glad that, because it was held in a church hall, firearms and knives were prohibited at that particular tournament.

    Oh and well done SwissGambit, that was near enough how the game ended. The sixteen year old winner of that game was Koneru Humpy (I still can't see that name without thinking Humpty Dumpty).

    In 1992 GM John Nunn lost a game in 21 moves to
    a 12 year old Vietnamese girl, Hoang Thanh Trang,
    who's now a GM herself, representing Hungary.
