chess for me!

by epemaster

Since my younger years in elementary school, my teachers have stimulated my classmates and myself to play chess.

Our elementary school enteredthe national annual tournament for children under 12 years old.

After several sub-competitions our first two teams placed first and second in the entire region of Amsterdam.

Finally our first and second team where knocked out by stronger competitors in the final round of the national chess tournament in Spijkenisse (near Rotterdam).

In the individual competition of Amsterdam for children under the age of 12, I finished 5th, together with one of my closest friends in class.

As young children, we have continued to play chess in our free time, and still it is one of my favourite activities.

Within my regular chess club competition of chess club Het Probleem, I encountered a talented young chess player named Mosa from Amstelveen. Against all odds, and throu ... Read more >>>

competitive Chess

by amolkarnad

In a world of competition, not all of us have the aptitude, fitness and discipline to excel professionally. What then is my purpose for pursuing  competitive Chess?  Serious Chess requiring my concentration over a specified time is my preferred mode of meditation.

Winning or losing with equanimity is my measure that tells me I have been reasonably relaxed, have enjoyed the game and thus meditated to satisfaction.

Chess is very significant part of my life

by Capablanca44

Chess is very significant part of my life.

   I was introduced to the game by an older brother when I was eleven years old. The game

fascinated me. I was not deterred by my defeats. Instead, I tried to improve my play through

seeking knowledge I gained from the acquisition of chess books and chess magazines.

   Eventually, I began to play at a Chess club. I played in tournaments at the club. I learned a

lot more about Chess through the post-mortem discussions after the games.
Some of the

members suggested books to me that they felt would improve my game. One of those books

that made a significant change in my game was called "Simple Chess" by Michael Stean. It

introduced me to positional Chess and increased my understanding of Chess.

    I have played over 600 tournament games and have kept in eighteen scorebooks complete

records of all my tornament ga ... Read more >>>

Chess gives me the means to express myself

by matefan

Chess gives me the means to express myself, the opportunity to test my mind in a seemingly endless diversity of situations, against adversaries young and old and from every corner of this world. Chess is passion, a challenge, brings the best out of you and the thrill of winning a tough match last long after the last move was made. Chess is like life itself, really. You always learning, full of surprises, you better be prepared if you want to succeed and just like life itself, we always expect to win!

Chess is a very wonderful game

by emmanuelasi

Chess is a very wonderful game and I feel pity for those who don't know how to play chess because it seems that they don't know how to love!

I started playing chess rather late at the age of 15 from my twin brother and my classmates.  I was always beaten but that never stopped me.   Jocel, my twin brother, and  I used to  hide from my  father  who is  against  the game because he can see most of the chess players in our barangay do not have jobs  and  not decent looking.   I can still remember when we were told by my father to look for our corn fields about 5 kilometers from our home.  Instead, we played chess all day we did not notice that my father was there already and he practically chopped the chessboard into pieces and my beloved chess pieces were cooked and we were required to drink.   Of  course,  the  two of  us  run  as fast as we could!

Chess is a fantastic stress reliever and memory booster

by cpaman

I am 58 years old and find  Chess is a fantastic stress reliever and memory booster.  It is a perfect hobby/sport that assists you in taking your mind off the stressful events of everyday living.  Chess also allows you to meet new people and that interaction is also beneficial to a person's well being.  Chess has helped me in being better organized in my thinking and activities.  In many respects the game of Chess pictures events in everyday life.  For one example you could use greed.  It gets you punished more often than not when you try to gobble up material without regard to the welfare of your pieces and position.  Also, many times being lazy and not expending the extra effort to plan ahead costs you dearly.

Chess is a great activity for all ages and will only assist in your everyday activities.

chess for me!

by alesrangel83

The silent sound of the battle about to begin. Two even armies. Same amount of soldiers, same amount of resources, same objectives: survival and prevalence. It is like a dream come true! No injustice! Two leaders command their forces in a field where there are no weak soldiers, no cowards. Each and every one of them is ready to sacrifice themselves in order to pursue victory.

I was a very young boy when I first saw this scenario. I wondered how two adults were playing with all those little toys (32 of them), which I found quite similar to the ones I used to play with, imagining some epic battle for honor and glory, making sounds like BLAST, PUFF and BRRRR. But this adults were not making sounds, they had a very serious look in their faces, like they were trying really hard or something.

That day, I asked my parents about it, they laughed and proceeded to explain the basic rules of chess. I understood everything, except the reason that made them l ... Read more >>>

what chess represents for me

by Calypso Freemo

WHAT CHESS REPRESENTS FOR ME:

My interest in chess has been gradual.  I had no one introduce the game to me, and no childhood exposure or experience.  I recall it was in my early thirties I decided to buy a set and learn to play.  I also became very interested in boxing, started training and was heading toward a semi-professional bout.  Suffice it to say, both boxing and chess are one on one combative sports, that I do best at and enjoy most, when I am in the ring for the fun of it.  Funnily, a boxing ring (oddly called a ring) and a chess board are the same shape.  And both utilize decision making processes that are essentially about time and place, movement, and strategy.  Muhammad Ali approached his early bouts with an attitude of psychological warfare.  Chess has this element.  For example, the loss of a queen, or a series of consecutive losses in a game, is psychologic ...
