Will Hou Yifan ever threaten the top male players? Not if she keeps playing women only events in my opinion. What do you think?

Maybe, but accepted wisdom is that you must mostly play stronger players in order to improve. I don't think playing weaker players is good for her in the long term. Unless she just wants to make money in women's tournaments and isn't bothered about trying to improve further.

Anand is showing his best form for years in the candidates. It seems that losing his world title has freed him to play his best again!

Part-time writer. Full-time geek.
Introduction
I grew up in the South Wales Valleys in the 1970s and haven't strayed very far away, now living in the rapidly expanding commuter belt in Church Village.

I fell into finance because I was good at maths in school, and I've been working for the local authority (almost) ever since.

Outside of work, I'm married to a wonderful woman who puts up with my chess addiction with infinite patience.

I'm a godless, left-wing libertarian who likes Stephen Fry, The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, and barbecue sauce.
