What motivates me to play chess online

by Syrianos

A nice question indeed. What is it that I like so much about playing chess online?

Well there are various reasons for this. For me, a 16-year-old boy in a small island in Greece, the predominant reason is that I would like to be the best chess player in the island. And since few people play chess here it is difficult to improve by playing only with them. So here I am, playing with teenagers and adults alike from all over the world. It the only way for me to escape from the narrow borders of this island and play this beloved game with different people every time.

Another reason, is because this game has become an obsession to me and thus I want to play as much as possible. It's the only way to forget my problems and recharge my batteries so I can smile every day. When I play chess, everything else seems to lose it's importance, every problem seems to become nothing more than a little pawn, ready to give its life for a greater cause. Something of small importance compared ... Read more >>>

What motivates me to play online chess? What doesn\'t...

by Eudaimonium

Hi all

since I got an invitation to post some blog, why not!

There was an intersesting question; what motivates me? Tons of fun, for example! Playing chess is a lot of fun for me, but also developing strategic thinking, but that is not all.

You see, I live in Croatia, country which still develops, and meeting somebody from US or something that far away is not everyday story. Just yestersday I had the pleasure to play chess with 'freemind', a man from US, and if would walk up to my friend and said: "Ey dude I've met a dude from US"

I belive he would laugh at me!

Chating with people all around the world while playing the best game ever with them, I think it should be the motivation for everybody to play chess not only online, but on chesshere.com, since I don't recall seeing a realtime chess on other websites, and in case there are, I don't think that it so good, with chat, observing, and all that what makes me play my 5 rounds regulary every day.

Peaceful War Around The World

by Revcedbur

I love the ability to compete in cyberspace. Chess with people from everywhere. An inexpensive romp

of matching wits worldwide. Facing the strrategists and tacticians. The learners and the novice.

Those that are avidly casual. Those that exchange ideas as well as moves. The silent soldiers.

I enjoy my encounters with them all.

I will try to put it into words what chess represents for me and what chesshere means to me

by orangechess

My name is Mark, I am 29 years old, and I am living 15 minutes from Amsterdam (The Netherlands) and around 20 minutes from Wijk aan Zee (where the Corus Chess tournament is played every year). Chess is a wonderful game i learned to play when I was 7 years old. My father teached me the basics moves of chess and bought me my first chessboard. From then on I played it when i had time.

 

 It is one of the few honest and purest games to see and play. In most games, for example when you watch a soccer match, sometimes the team with the lowest budget wins a game from a favorite. But most of the time the clubs with the biggest budgets (like Chelsea, Manchester United, AC Milan, Barcelona, Real Madrid, etc.) are winning, because they can buy the best players. In the Formula one Ferrari has the most money and can build the best car ... Read more >>>

Chess represents a large amount of strategy

by fkaplan

Imagine, a battle of cataclysmic proportions where you as a king must be protected at all costs. A battle where you send your queen to battle for you as she is your most formidable asset. Where even under the most promising circumstances, a pawn can take a king.

 

Chess represents a large amount of strategy, quick thinking, and mostly, FUN. It is most fun to get your opponents goat (so-to-speak) and get them to double guess themselves. I usually play for the social interactivity, I play because i know how, not necessarily to win. Let them have their victories on the chess board, it is still just a game.

Chess is my excape from work

by fourcsoflife

Chess is my excape from work.  I have a pretty stressful job.  I work for the city of Santa Barbara and have to deal with people complaining about there neighbors and the trash situation day in and day out.  The public often confuses me with the trash hauler and I receive even more complaints cenerning what they did or didn't do.  I know that they are not mad at me but often it is difficult when these people are yelling at you, and I do mean yelling at you and everything else that goes with that, to not feel as though it is your fault.  I don't want these people to be mad so I do everything I can to rectify there problem.  I go out and I pick up trash and various other things that I will not include in an email just so that these people will be happy and feel as though someone cares.  For those rare down times I turn to chess.  It is peaceful, quite, and I love the interacti ...

Chess to me is a game of expressive strategy

by indianheat

A game of war, a war of the minds.  Chess to me is a game of expressive strategy and a game that requires one to anticipate the strategy of others.  What is great about chess is that both players start out with equal opportunity and power, but it is their mind that decides whether they will overpower or be overpowered.
