What Chess means to me

by Zola Singapore

To be honest with you, chess to me was just a leisure activity initially but now it has change my life. I used to play with my elder brother which I won most of the time. Here in Cheshere.com I managed to play with so many wonderful players around the world with so many style. I became obsessed coz they were so many good players and that I was beaten time and time again. Chess is a way of life where you need to be strategyst, cunning and push yourself to win and if you dont win, respect your opponent coz you know that there is someone better than you. Instead of despising them , you need to emulate them and learnt from the  mistake you made.

It is from Chesshere.com, that I decide to go for my local tournament. I have never enter tournament before and I dont know whether Im good enough but if you dont try you will never know. Wish me luck and hope I can go win over to the 2nd round.

Leaving the game

by gregcachin

Leaving the game by unplugging your internet connection or something is the most unsportsman a player had done, its like running scared for fear of losing, surely the winning position will not likely run from the game, it is the losing player. Why what is your points here, you cannot profit from it, you cannot present it to any chess bodies like FIDE that this is your elo rating. I am sure this will not be recognized, play the way you should play no matter win or lose, just finish the game i am sure you will learn from your string of defeats.

Timeout reminders

by cc1254281104

I consider timeout reminders to be a good thing as people do sometimes forget. However, they should not be used as an alternative to good time management. If one consistantly needs to be reminded, then either they have too much on their plate or have a very bad memory.

I one is playing to many game to be able to pay attention, then reduction in the number of games is needed.

I consider one reminder to be sufficient, more than that is unnecessary. One should need to be led around by the hand.

Look after your own games, don't expect someone else to do it for you! ... Read more >>>

What chess means to me

by florianovitz

This is a difficult question to be answered. I've started to play with six years old. My first teacher was my father (he's my great incentivator). For a long time, until 12 i've played chess just for fun. When i get 12 i have started to play chess seriously, training something about 3 or 4 hours a day for 6 long years. In my chess player life i've passed for great happyness, like when i have winned my state championship under 16 in 2004, and i've passed some sad times, like every losted game. I had to stop play seriously because of my work and university, but in the end of the year i'll get formed and will have too much time to spend with chess. What's chess for me? Chess is passion, is a science, is a feeling, is a good reason to live, to believe in human. My life have changed with chess. I'm a better person, with great dreams (like to be FM in the end of 2009). I've learned some words in other languages, like spanish and english thrue the chess. I compare the pleasure to play a ch ... Read more >>>

The art of learning

by Best by test

Chess is one of the oldest and most elegant, beautiful game ever created. For me is a great inspiration, especially because you are able to see what heroes and genius like Fischer have done with that 32 pieces on that 64 squares. It requires memory but also intuition. I have enjoyed seeing chess in movies and tv series and I like seeing chess historical matches like Fischer-Spassky 72'. Chess has given man the opportunity to play against all the races, all kind of people in this pianet, beyond war, violence, intollerance but just with your own intelligence and creativity. Is good to sit down in front of the chessboard with a friend or a perfect unknown and begin the battle to checkmate the enemy king. When you win chess give you a lot satisfaction and when you lose, you can always learn from your mistakes...

Chess - a psychological warfare

by rgpadalkar

I consider Chess as a war. It is applicable in all the spheres in real life. It may be politics, sports, social or family life, or dealing with friends or foes. One has to think what will be the other person's move or action in real life and be prepared to meet the challenge posed by that action. Chess helps me to also understand other persons by  thinking on these lines.

What chess means to me...

by crimzonrain

For me, chess represents the best of my childhood. My father taught me to play when I was about 7 years old. At first he could beat me with half of his fighting peices missing, queen included. It was always so frusterating. But the more that I played him the better I got, untill, finaly, he had to put his queen back on the board in order to win. I was so proud of myself and that first time that I beat him he gave me a smile that let me know that he was proud of me too. I am sure that I will remember that smile for the rest of my life. We used to play, game after game after game, for hours straight. When I think of the highlights of my life, those times are usually the first to appear. I have a 3 year old little girl now and in a couple of years I think she'll be ready to start playing. I hope it ends up meaning for her what it did for me.  ^.^

Chess player, a dangerous leader!?

by gregcachin

This type of article you might fully disagree. However think twice before doing so. why it pass my mind such as this, remember the gambits, a piece will be sacrificed for mobility, positional advantage later on or buying some time. But what if the gambit is not on the right timing? wrong move as they say, or that move is justified maybe after two moves. But the word is gambit, who wants to be gambited, you?
