And you turn a winner into a loserAnd instead of 15-Love; it's Love-15.

both games feature unforced errors

The difference is that in tennis, you can't let the brain get in the way- In chess you have to think, and think a lot

He is an interesting article on the subject:

I'm not sure, but this seems to say tennis and chess are similar. If you concentrate or focus too much, you lose.

So is 'thinking' the be-all-and-end-all in chess? How about mathematics? What's this chap doing?

Another strange thing: How does one learn to recite these 91 cities one after the other, other than singing them as lyrics in a song like Hank Snow & Johnny Cash

- If only I could do trick moves in chess

You cannot be serious! He clearly touched that piece

11Canada  HenriDeToi2017-08-23 17:11:12
But the ball never touched the line; that ball was out

Day before yesterday a friend sat on the floor and tried playing chess with his son aged 17 months. The boy flung the pieces all round the room. Why let feelings get in the way?

sounds like a future GM to me

14Canada  HenriDeToi2017-08-24 15:52:54
A budding future racquet breaker

15United  neverherebeforeChessHere Gold Member2017-08-25 13:00:47
perhaps both!

Nothing wrong with a little competiveness

Russia (Azerbaïdjan) has Kasparov. Canada has Shapovalov

I sleep very well. It sure explains a lot of things.

21Canada  dsuttles2017-10-10 13:05:21
*3 but what is 'thinking'?

22Canada  HenriDeToi2017-10-10 13:16:29
Je pense, donc je suis.

23Canada  dsuttles2017-10-11 00:38:32
donc je joue aux échecs?

24Canada  HenriDeToi2017-10-11 00:47:34
Sans trop penser...
