Before the final game, when the participants were interviewed by reporters, one of them asked,

"Miss Harmon, What do you say to those in the Chess Federation who accuse you of being too glamorous to be a serious chess player?"

She answered to the question saying,

"I would say that it is much easier to play chess without the burden of an Adam’s Apple."

What did she mean by that?

    I saw it as a little dig. A battle of the sex. It’s preposterous to think that a woman can be too glamorous to play, just like it’s crazy that a man might have his voice box to worry about. A very good question, nonetheless! – cmp Nov 20 at 20:08
