Does the name Beth Harmon sound familiar? The fictional Beth, an orphan, is a chess prodigy who captures the hearts of viewers and earns the world chess championship crown in the incredibly popular 2020 Netflix miniseries, “The Queen’s Gambit.”
Elliott Neff is a real-life Chess Federation National Master, who helps others, especially young and disadvantaged people, discover valuable life lessons through the game of chess.
In October 2018, two years before America fell in love with Beth Harmon, Elliott schooled host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart on the ways in which chess teaches sportsmanship, good decision-making, patience, planning, and how to learn from mistakes. Listening to this week’s Best of Monday Morning Radio episode is a smart opening move for any entrepreneur who aims to checkmate the competition.
