For me the actor for Beth Harmon (13+ actor) is one of the greatest gifted actors of our century. The way she looks at the board whilst she’s playing is just the tip of the iceberg but (I think we can all agree) is a very powerful stare. The way she freezes when someone throws something emotional and thinks it through before acting (just like a chess player would react after there opponent has played there move) is a work of genius from the writers but Qudos to her for perfecting the amazing character that is Beth Harmon. As some other people have also said when they are playing chess the moves aren’t completely made up, they are well thought out moves an advanced player would make, it must have been a faff to remember them all especially in the fast paced games. I was able to follow them all and as I’m sure other chess players can agree, this adds another level of depth to the best series of 2020, in my opinion (sorry stranger things :c) I cannot give this series enough credit, to the writers, costume designers, directors, props department, actors and especially Anya Taylor. The far too old to be called a prodigy actor! I simply wanted to pay my respects to this outstanding Netflix adaptation, thank you for making 2020 a bit less depressing!

Yeah she did. In the opening scene she’s late to the tournament because she was intoxicated. Cleo is on the bed. Cleo pressured her into getting wasted even when she knew Beth had an addiction.

The most important thing that made me watch the show till the end was of how Beth (Anya) was shown amazingly growing from her early teens to 20's...It was not like those shows in which a smart girl does not like to dress up and don't know anything about makeup...Beth (Anya) is shown as a great chess player as well as a girl who do not neglects herself in the journey of becoming Chess World Champion..

I don’t think Beth stumbled onto the men in the park playing chess. She had spotted them before on a previous walk and after the game, she asked her driver to stop so she could walk. I think she went to find the old men because they reminded her of Mr Shaibel - people who played for the love of the game and individual happiness.
