why i play chess online

by KDP920

Interesting question.� I guess the easy answer is that for some folks who either don't have a local club to play at or like myself when the club meets doesn't quite mesh with my work schedule, playing online allows us to play the game we love at our own pace.� Once I've begun playing, playing online especially a correspondence style chess allows me to� sit down and think out my moves plot my strategy without the time pressures of facing a clock.� By slowing the game down I have improved my play to the point that I now win more than I lose.� (Believe me thats a HUGE! improvement for me.)

While all things are true, the main reason I enjoy playing online is much different.� Most of my opponents I've played aren't really the chatty type and I'm okay with that, but every now and then I'll get someone who will respond to my standard greeting of "Hi, thanks for playing."� They� tell me a little about themselves, and I will do the same and slowly but surely ...

Chess alone is meaningless

by Activate

I've beaten many others smarter than myself, at chess. I have a rival whom I cannot beat at chess, but can beat at other games, such as Go or Backgammon. From this I learned, chess isn't an expression of anything, it's a game we use to express ourselves. One of many games.

If both players play at their best, the better player will win. The way to change this pattern is to get better. I play chess because it's fun, but also because I have someone I want to beat. Chess alone is meaningless. It takes two to play a game.

I personally don't care for anonymous internet chess. If the match isn't personal, I can't get a thrill out of it. But once in a while, I find a player that's my level. Not too strong. Not too weak. A game that will remain even until somebody finds their hidden strength and activates the golden move.

My motivation to play chess online

by turtleman

STUDENTS!! That's my motivation. I could come up with many intelligent and logical reasons to play online, but the real answer is simple...students. I teach chess at 3 elementary schools and 1 middle school. To teach I must learn. The best platform tfor me to learn is online chess. It's quieter, more relaxing and less confusing than trying to learn from students across aboard. "I need help," is not echoed from me as in a school setting. Yes, students are my motivation in playing online. In return I hope I am able to motivate others from my online experiences.

why i prefer chess online

by farewellchess

Chess is perhaps the most complex cerebral game man has ever invented. It contains billions of varieties, so much so, that even the giant chess software can't ensure you a sure win despite its gigantic capacity to calculate trillions of moves within a few seconds. Secondly, chess demands a beautiful combination of science & art, sheer logic & mysterious creativity. Thirdly, chess is perhaps one of the very few games that eliminates the component of luck. If you lose none else is to blame; if you win you solely deserve the credit yourself. Fourthly, online chess has many edges over OTB chess. For instance, elderly people like me who have physical constraints can join the battle of wits from the comfort of their homes. CC confers the additional benefits of extra time & opportunity to consult books, database etc, to minimize mistakes & sharpen one's skill at the game. Finally, it's a bit cruel but factually true that chess is not meant for the dullards who go for launde ... Read more >>>

More than a yottabyte cubed....

by eljon_2007

So what motivates me?

Aside from massive amounts of endorphin and dopamine (and other "happy" hormones) that are released from my hypothalamus whenever I play chess?

This thought.

It is estimated that the possible variations in chess is roughly a googol and a septillion.

That is one followed by 124 zeros...

and the possible number of positions in a game of 40 moves is between 10^40 - 10^50...

and about 10^83 for 80 moves.

and there are only 10^80 atoms in our observable universe.

Talk about numbers, chess is the only thing that comes close to this.

Some predicted that when computer memories reach the order of n- yottabyte, chess will be solved...

Untrue, of course. And one can ask a theorerical physicist about this...

No one, nothing will ever solve chess.

This thought, in itself, is an intrinsic reward. This reward motivates me.

and for the "online" thingy, its JUST MORE FUN to PLAY ONLINE!!

Chess - The classic battle of logic.

by Ritadhooge

Chess: The classic battle of logic. In the battle of logic invisible fences of war are created by the power of each piece. Little soldiers are sent forth first to break the way to success or failure. I hear the knights horses hooves galloping across the field and jumping over hindrances both black and white. I see the bishops sliding gracefully diagonally from side to side. I smell the sweet presence of two Beauties challenging each other as they stare towards one another across the face of blocks. It is a battle without audible cries or visual agony. Instead the pieces disappear silently leaving empty spaces. The rooks have more freedom as the field open up to untie them from their limitations. Alas for those who move too quickly, too impatiently and inattentively over the borders of the other land. A dreamy eye, a fatal hand, a subjective thought can lead to the loss of a whole army And finally the King. The noblest of them all, he has to be protected, always kept in mind for h ...

Why Play Chess Online?

by missingno000

The reason that I choose to play chess online is that you can reach millions of opponents, instead of the few (if any) near your house/hotel/condo/etc. Also, you can choose correspondence chess (which I like because you have more time to think about your next move) or real-time chess (which feels more like a real game). Also, you can play an unlimited number of simultaneous matches (in the real world, you're limited to the number of chess sets you can dig up).CJ ... Read more >>>
