I play chess because

by mbir

I play chess because I am trying to change the way I look into life. My ambition of being a marketing manager one day enforces me to have a strategic frame of mind in life in all aspects. And chess, I believe, will assist me in getting what I want

Chess to me represents the lifelong pursuit

by cjon316

Chess to me represents the lifelong pursuit of a strategic game I learned in 5th grade. The friend who taught me how to play realized he had taught me well when I started to beat him at chess. I am no chess master by any means, and do not wish to give that impression, but I do relish the strategy, planning, and gambit that goes into a good chess match. I love playing the game even if it is across the miles through a web site. More favorable of course is to play a move here and there at my chess table in the living room. Now I am in the process of teaching my 4 children to play (ages 5 - 13) and watching their eyes light up when they see a move opportunity and they determine that it would be a good one. My wife is also a very competitive player and we have fun playing games together.

Thanks for the opportunity to share my thoughts on chess

Chess is a self-reflecting form of discussion

by ZboyT

Chess is a self-reflecting form of discussion: Playing chess is like discussing with your opponent, with the advantage of a neverfailing judge, the Rules.
This 'discussion' has been resumed for thaousands of years, by billions of people from every nation; and is nower days as lively as in ancient times.
And last but not least:
It´s a peaceful, and nevertheless, fascinating never-ending Story!

I began with Chess when i was 8 years old

by felixje

I began with Chess when i was 8 years old. I saw a father of a friend of mine playing it with he's son. I couldn't get the game, the rules, it was so difficult to understand the game. So my friend and I started to look somewhere where we could follow some chess lessons. After like a week or two weeks we have found a teacher. Year in, Year out we've played chess. But when i was 13 years old i stopped with chess, so my friend did stopped too. I began playing roleplaying games, like guild wars en World of Warcraft, but after two years of playing that I didn't liked it anymore. Since this year, in the beginning of 2008, I played for fun chess on a board at my friends home. That evening I thought ""Wow, that was a long time ago, I really enjoyed it" So i wanted to play more and more. And I played allot games with that friend. I've started to understand the game better, it's a puzzle with allot of possibilities, every single game is different. It's never the same, you ... Read more >>>

Chess is holistic

by missarlajean

I played chess for many years, but after college none of my friends ever wanted to play. It was only a few days ago that I rediscovered why chess was so precious to me in the past.

Chess is holistic. Man must be creative within the law governing chess, a beautiful representation of the survival and adventurous advancement of humankind. It requires complex thought and memory, thereby sharpening and preserving the mind.

But it is also guided by and frequently manifests the spirit. If I am confident, I play aggressively. If playful, then I make surprising & experimental moves regardless of their perceived advantage. If competetive, I stick to standard openings and well-reasoned progression. Any number of traits may be on display during play and observed in opponents. I believe it is difficult to hide one's spirit during a chess game.

For these reasons chess is an intimate experience, the sharing of intellect, character, and emotion, the forced exposure of wh ... Read more >>>

To me, chess is a way that my friends and I can spend time together

by dragon reborn

To me, chess is a way that my friends and I can spend time together. At school, we play at lunch, during our free period, and online at ChessHere. I learned how to play chess from my younger cousin, who played in a leauge. I still remeber those frustrating hours I spent playing "the pawn game". After I got the game down, chess became a way for us to settle our disputes, even over the rules of chess. Most of my family only knows how to play checkers (where's the challenge in that??) so for a few years, I didn't play at all. Then, after my family moved,  I got involved in Croos Country and track. I, being the crazy bookworm that I am, began bringing my chess board to practices, and playing against my team-mates. Chess helped me to fit in to my new environment, and earned me a place, however strangly gotten, among my peers. I soon became fast friends with several of my opponents, and we played at every chance we got. We even bought a magnetic set so that we cou ... Read more >>>

chess is a bit like life

by jumpy

Well, I am nearly 52 yrs old, mother of 3 and learned chess 4 yrs ago with my youngest son. I love this game and somehow I find that it is a bit like life, only you can decide which path to take. Chess has taught me that no one but ourselves can decide what is best for us. I love this game and will play to the very last day of my life.

My first encounter with chess

by kummup

I'm a student at Craft on Hills College. My first encounter with chess was at a difficult time in my life. I found myself making decisions without looking at the cause and effects, and had to pay the price with my freedom for  two years. During that time I spent a way I got my education and eared my GED. I spent any free time playing chess with older men each one came from different places all over the world. Every time a different elderly man would set a play me in a game, he  would say some wise crack, but really meaning  some sort of metaphor. At first,  I did not get them at all it gave he a headache just trying to understand the wise crack, lol. So chess means to me that real life situations can  be but put in a blue print of a chess board and if  looking at the out come of each move made, you'll be successful in life and in chess. Look at me I'm in College. Chess is  my thinking companion

I play chess since I was 10 years old

by pierrotlefou

Chess is a game. I play chess since I was 10 years old, but I never learn anything about openings and strategy...

Last year, having some more time for leisure, I bought some books and study a little these points. The result was in becoming better and getting involved in playing more and more...

But I almost play with only king gambit french and sicilian openings which is not enough.... May be I buy some more books. But I am too old to become a champion.
