Play Chess Against A Virtual Beth Harmon From 'The Queen's Gambit'

Post by: Rick Ellis 20 November, 2020

Chess.com has some bots that allow you to play against virtual versions of well-known chess champions. But they've just launched a really fun bot that allows players to compete against a virtual Beth Harmon from the Netflix series The Queen's Gambit.

The bots are Beth at seven different ages: 8, 9, 10, 15, 17, 21. And even for someone like myself who hasn't played chess since high school, it's a fun distraction. 



It's free to play and if you create a free account, you can save your progress. I decided to take on the eight-year-old Beth.



And I did win the game, although it took long enough to remind me that I really am over my head, even when I'm playing a 4th grader.
