NYT OP-ED piece by Nick Kristof features Chess profile

For an interesting take on the recent victory in the Women's World Chess Championship by Hou Yifan, see this article by Nicolas Kristof at the New York Times.

Essentially, he argues that China's recent rise in chess is a fine example of the slow emergence of China's untapped talent pool in many areas of human enterprise.

He also briefly recounts a friendly game he played with Yifan, but there is no game score.
