And you turn a winner into a loserAnd instead of 15-Love; it's Love-15.-

both games feature unforced errors-

The difference is that in tennis, you can't let the brain get in the way- In chess you have to think, and think a lot -

I'm not sure, but this seems to say tennis and chess are similar. If you concentrate or focus too much, you lose.-

So is 'thinking' the be-all-and-end-all in chess? How about mathematics? What's this chap doing?

You cannot be serious! He clearly touched that piece -

But the ball never touched the line; that ball was out -

Day before yesterday a friend sat on the floor and tried playing chess with his son aged 17 months. The boy flung the pieces all round the room. Why let feelings get in the way?-

13United  neverherebefore2017-08-24 04:27:11

Nothing wrong with a little competiveness -

I sleep very well. It sure explains a lot of things. -

*3 but what is 'thinking'?-

22Canada  HenriDeToi2017-10-10 06:16:29
Je pense, donc je suis.-

23Canada  dsuttlesChessHere Moderator2017-10-10 17:38:32
