Chess Urban Myths: A @[114319015250886:274:Chess prodigy] doesn't have to be a kid with a 2700 elo. Being prodigious at something just means you are extraordinarily good at it, so technically a 70 year old who never played the game before could discover she was prodigious at chess.

Chess Urban Myths: Women can't play chess as well as men. There is actually no clinical evidence to support this. And @[103099476396595:274:Judit Polgár], @[76850562861:274:Hou Yifan], @[109730142387348:274:Alexandra Kosteniuk] and the hundreds of women chess professionals are walking proof. Men also have approximately 6.5 times more gray matter in the brain than women, but before the heads of all the men out there start to swell, listen to this: Women have about 10 times more white matter than men do [source: Carey]. This difference may account for differences in how men and women think. Men seem to think with their gray matter, which is full of active neurons. Women think with the white matter, which consists more of connections between the neurons. In this way, a woman's brain is a bit more complicated in setup, but those connections may allow a woman's brain to work faster than a man's [source: Hotz].
