In the actual show, the first few moves have been changed and are not the same as in this video, but it is irrelevant to the game and the conclusion so I did not include this. Hope you enjoy the game :)

The film makes me wonder why there isnt a woman world champion. After a little search I found many comments like they are not smart enough, they focus on womens tournaments so they can get their money and etc. I think they just cant stand the presure at the big series. I dont think women are less smarter. What do u think ?
Ragtime44Films Vor 3 Tage
I'm amazed from this analysis, seeing how much effort they put into making the chess games in the show seem as legitimate as possible. It's almost flawlessly convincing, even down to specific playstyles (i.e. Beth doesn't sacrifice pieces as much, Borgov is very aggressive in endgames). It would have been way easier for the director to be lazy and tell the actors to just "move the pieces around randomly, look like you're concentrating hard," etc. But they didn't. It's often very easy to tell when actors are faking a certain skill (music, games, sports) in movies/TV, and it can be pretty jarring. So I'm glad they didn't go with the fake and easy option for Queen's Gambit.

There's a small mistake at 16:24 in the movie, just after Borgov advances his pawn. The wall board inside the game room shows the white bishop in the wrong place: it became a white-square bishop. The white queen is also misplaced. Excellent movie anyway!!!

Hey Agadmator! i really enjoyed the video, but i find myself wondering what would happen if at 15:22 in the video with the queen at d3, why the queen doesn't take the knight? it would break the draw by repetition, and while it's not an ideal trade, it does allow the game to continue and is viable for black since it would still come out to roughly the same position as white in terms of material (ending with the same amount of material for both players except white has rook where black has a bishop) what would happen there and do you find this a good continuation? i find it quite interesting :) thanks again for the great content!

Thanks for the detailed analysis. As an old physicist, who hasn't played chess in a while, the show was an interesting study of the link between one's passion for a given intellectual game and how your life develops to support this. Loved your analysis!

9:02 knight can go to f3 and the game will go on?
Max Bell
Max Bell Vor 9 Tage think bishop to C5 was a blunder! if borgov instead pushed his h pawn, he would have been able to destabilize the king. Should have played queen to bx5. black rook takes white bishop, white rook takes black knight, black pawn takes white rook, white promotes queen, and black would be forced to resign as white can pick off pawns and get a past pawn

I am pretty sure borgov rejected the queen gambit

The series was a treat, but it was made even better by admagator - his channel is unmatched ... a true gem! The creativity of my play has been unleashed by his insightful analysis of classic and modern games. Kudos! A minor but very personal footnote: my father, Dr. Fred R. Payne is the historical figure of Harry Beltik, as he was the youngest Kentucky state chess champion at age 20 in 1951. A USAF fighter pilot instructor and later an aerospace engineer, educator and computational physicist, my father taught all three of his sons to play chess before age five. He also taught most of the local primary school kids back then, but my brothers and I were the scourge of Fort Worth TX for a decade. Lessons learned over the board proved essential to our careers in medicine-biophysics, abstract mathematics and wartime tank command/criminal investigation. My highest esteem to Mr. Redic for his commitment to the bountiful traditions of chess!!

How can i get your chess board? i have stockfish for mac. I really like what you do and how you explain. You have the memory of an elephant and more. Thank you. I watched Queen's Gambit series already 3 times. That series is what got me into chess, and i haven't been doing anything else since then, playing chess with computer. Aside from stockfich It seams like computer goes straight to the kill, which is confusing me. This video of last game, showed me you shouldn't kill anything your way just yet. Inspect and analize. I love it.
