Something bad about chess

by Blizzaror

I see that in chess schools, the best chess players don't like to play against weak players because they're no challenge for them. But they don't understand that they were beginner when they learned how to play chess, and it was with strong peoples they learned chess' basics.

In the other hand, weak peoples don't like to play against these strong chess players, because they're . But to be good chess player, they have to play against them.

Unlikely, I think it happens a lot of time. Before I was good, I remember that I didn't like to play against the strongest players of the school, but a day someone told me to give a try. I was sceptic, but after giving a try, I was finally getting fun to learn every day. Finally, I did beated the best of my school. So now I'm helping weaker peoples to teach'em chess. I think that kids have to play with everybody, because it's the only way to get proud of friends, whether if they're strong or weak.

What\'s your opinion about this opening?

by Blizzaror

It's a opening that I played many times before, but I wonder what people think about this. It's the Keres attack in the Scheveningen of the Sicilian. So it goes like this : 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 d6 6.g4.  I think that people don't use this because it'll goes to a wierd positon.

I play chess because I enjoy the challenge of forcing your opponent into making moves that you want them to make.  It is rewarding to play a match in which you are evenly pitted against someone else, and you play waiting for the other person to make either a mental mistake or they "blink."  At that point in the game it is up to you to take advantage and press home your victory.  Chess is generally not a forgiving mistress when you make mistakes.  It helps me to be better disciplined in my thinking, my concentration on tasks, and in forseeing possible consequences to actions taken in the present.

What do you thik about that chess opening

by mihaibujanca

I usually played black 1e4,e5; 2Nf3,Nf6;3 Bc4,Bc5 4.0-0,Nf6 5Nc3,0-0 etc

But once had an idea: 1.e4,e5 2.Nf3,Nc6 3.Bc4,f5!!!

If 4.exf5...e4!!! 5.Ng1(the single chance to save the Knight) and black has a good advantage and will get the pawn later.

Now something stops the black attack(just for a move)

If 5...d5?? 6.Qh5+,g6? 7.fxg6,Ng6???(i was playing like that once) 8. g7+!!!,Nxh5 9.g7xh8=Q and I was lost

But the way I had to play was 5… Nf6! A move which would appear to be defensive but it’s potentially offensive later and the black has an advantage.

6 d3(best for white) ...d5! 7 Bb5 (or Bb3)...Bxf5 and black has a strong attack and good position.

What do you thik about that opening?

I liked the ideea of the Jaenish defence to sacrifice the pawn in Ruy Lopez 3...f5   (instead of a6 or d6)

But i don't like that  in Ruy Lopez white can take the knight and has good attack.

Different Motivations To Play Chess

by goldyluck

After reading some of the blogs by players here I am appalled of what motivate them to play. This person that used to live in the ghetto catches my attention best. it makes me realise how lucky I am.How can a person be so knowingly  live in a barbaric place unless he don't have a choice?Can a person be different from an environment he grew up when he moves to a different place? or will he bring  the trouble to his new place?Will he be saying " You don't know where I'm from, so don't mess up with me!". Thanks to the chess game , I feel wherever you come from...we have common interest.

Will you be intimidated to play chess against  a person who just finished serving his 30 years sentence in jail? I'm not...because chess has its own rules and everybody who plays  chess knew the rules. What motivates me the most is Chess :  is the game for everyone and it brings people together.

What is my motivation for playing chess and what it means to me!

by jc56066

Well alot of things in life can be related or compared to chess.
The first thing that comes out of me is a ghetto mantality. I'm originally from Detroit MI and not the suburbs! Chess reminds me of why I go to work everyday, so I don't have to live there ever again! 
I now live in Las Vegas and am out of that rat hole some people call home. It was pretty rough there. One night a cabbie dropped me of at McNichols and Gratoit and he said " this is the number one intersection in America were you can get murdered". My house was less than a Quarter mile from there on Troester.
    Anyway when I lived in Detroit I played chess to keep my wits sharp and remind me to always think a few steps ahead of the other guy.
For instance in the hood people sell things in the street (the two middle rows of the board). When someone intrudes on my side of the street trying to take my money that I  ... Read more >>>

What motivates me to play Chess Online

by tsukasa

Chess, my favorite board game. What motivates me to play chess  online is to play it. When I'm at school no one wants to play, and when I am at home no one wants to because I have more experience then my younger brother and sister. So I have no way of getting better at it. So I decided to join this website for a few reasons. One, for me to play chess. Two, because I want to be a better and a good chess player. Plus, since I only have internet at school, it is one of the ways for me to play chess. As you already know it is my favorite board game, and it is a way to meet players from around the world. I find it awesome to meet other people who play chess:) Chess online is a fun way to play chess because I think that it makes you think a little bit more. I also like games that make you think. This is why Chess Online motivates me to play it. :)

My Overview, And Life With Chess!

by XxXJinna007XxX

Over the last 12 months, i've self-taught myself parts of chess, and whether mine or my opponents king falls, i learn something new. I review all my games, and try to eradicate any errors so i therefore don't reflect them in the future. Afterall, learning your mistakes is key, even if they're trvial.

Prior to sitting at a chess board i undergo fear, worry and anxiety, but when those delicate pieces begin to manouver and suddenly those 64 squares become active, my fear becomes my adrenaline and at that point everything else is blocked out. My hunger then kicks in to try and give my opponent a bad position, few squares to work with and an illusion of fore-seeing anyway back into the crue game as her/his king lies on the brink of extinction merciless. To reach this point of domination i fight for the centre the best i can, then i try trick and confuse my opponent into blunders.

I apprciate the aesthetics of chess, and the self belief it brings as i see my opponents king fal ... Read more >>>

i was looking for a job but i was not satisfied with anyone. Then I started giving chess coaching. I started with Part time job as a Chess Coach in School. And as a player i enjoy playing chess and participate in tournament. Chess has given me job, enjoyment and sufficient time also.



I play online chess. I used to find good chess players. But, by playing online chess I really struggle to beat good players. And i have made chess friends and took good chess tips also. So, Online chess is really interesting and educative.


As all knows chess makes good concentration. For Concentration I do meditation also and go to Brahmakumaris Rajyoga Centre. Really I experience peace there and i have learnt many things there like about self management,stress management,positive life style,8 spiritual powers,Who is God and How to make good relation with God.

My Motivation to Play Chess Online


My motivation for playing chess online is to improve my game and make chess popular in my town. Chess isn't big where I live, and few people give enough attention to the game. In an environment where kids would rather play sports like basketball or hockey, or join other clubs like debate club, chess has become a forgotten game. I am the leader of the small chess team at my high school and I try each and every day to make my team perform better. With very few people on the team, many matches are lost because we aren't able to offset the losses from the boards where we don't have enough players for. For example, this past winter there was the annual High School State Chess Championship in which teams all over the state competed, but sadly my team was one person short of the 6 people needed to compete. Online chess gives me the opportuntity to get better by playing players at and above my level. I have fun with some new friends and learn a lot from the games I play here at Chesshere. B ...
