Beth’s great talent in chess will begin to unfold over the years, but she also has to face a great enemy: her addiction to pills and alcohol.
There will be no second season for “The Queen’s Gambit” and that’s good. It is a limited series of seven episodes that ends in seven hours. The most beautiful seven-hour TV checkmate of recent years.
