Bored Of Poker? Watch The Queen’s Gambit

by Donna Amo Posted on 14 Dec, 2020

If you just need a little break from your routine poker grind, then ‘The Queen’s Gambit‘ on Netflix is the perfect show to binge watch. If you aren’t among the 65 million people who have already watched the show, then it’s about time you did. Yes, we know it’s about chess and no, there’s nothing about poker in it. But you’ll be surprised at what you can find in this thoroughly enjoying limited series.

What is the show about?

The show follows Beth Harmon, a young orphan girl who discovers her passion for chess and begins to make her mark in a game dominated by men. Harmon is a chess prodigy, haunted by her past and plagued by numerous addictions. She’s on a journey to be the best in the only thing she knows – chess.

Why you should watch it?

Chess is not a visual sport, but The Queen’s Gambit proves that even a sport often dubbed ‘boring’ has a lot of interesting aspects to it, just like poker. Chess is a game of strategy, one that requires not just talent or skill but hours of studying. Sounds familiar? Viewers will find themselves completely submerged into this captivating world created by director Scott Frank. If news reports are anything to go by, web searches for chess went through the roof on Google.

What would an Indian version of the show look like?

If we’re going to replace chess with poker, then Nikita Luther certainly is on our number spot to play the lead in the story. Poker like chess in the series is a game mostly played by men, so it would be refreshing to see it from the eyes of a woman as accomplished as Luther.

We guarantee that after you watch the Netflix series, your hands will either be itching to play chess or you’ll start seeing chess boards on your ceiling. Whatever be the case, this is a show you absolutely cannot miss, so we suggest you go watch it now.
