I liked being able to flex my advanced math skills with AD&D 2e with arms and equipment guide!
Chess does not segregate it’s world championships. Chess does have a separate female-only championship, but Chess does not have a male-only tournament.
It’s also worth nothing that the world’s highest FIDE-rated female player in Chess has never participated in the women’s only tournament, and has mostly played men in mixed-gender tournaments.
For example, chess is also divided into male / female leagues," the organization said in a statement.
I want to clear up the Chess thing real quick:
The World Chess Championship, the one with champions like Kasparov and Fischer, is open to all players.
Yes, FIDE does organize other female only tournamnets, and also a female only Women’s World Chess Championship.
But the big one, the famous one, the one people think about when they say World Champion, that one accepts any gender.
