$1.5M Meltwater Champions Chess Tour: Opera Euro Rapid | Day 3 | Commentary by D. Howell & J. Houska



Individuals, particularly chess gamers themselves, state the darnedest features of chess and also regarding chess gamers. Here are several of our preferred misconceptions about the royal video game. A few of these phrases are unquestionably off-target, several of them are uneducated perception, as well as several of them are controversies that might or might not stand.

Chess might not be the most convenient video game to grab, yet it is much from one of the most too high. You have to understand the actions of the 6 pieces, where the item with the smallest relevance, the Pawn, has the most complicated actions. Then you have to remember the policies regarding attacking and safeguarding the King, consisting of castling. Then there are a few regulations concerning video games where neither gamer victories. One side of this myth is reputable—- it is challenging, extremely challenging, to discover to play chess well. One player in a hundred achieves supremacy.

There is some link between chess talent and general intelligence. Chess does involve, after all, using numerous advanced compartments of the brain as skillfully as applicable. People from all walks of life have fun playing chess, several attaining mastery.

This isn’t a misstatement, since chess is for everyone. It is for nerds, boffins, geeks, and eggheads, as usually as it is for anyone else. People who want to call other people unpleasant names should better say,’ chess is only for nerds ‘, but this is plainly untrue. Even if it was on target, so what? Intelligent, awkward, quirky people have made more contributions to the evolution of society than have the rest. If they want to play chess, that’ s their business.

In 2006, the finest computers play chess better than 99.99% of people, but are evenly leveled in games against the top humans. If, as some experts think, computers are gaining 20– 30 rating points per year, the moment will soon arrive when humans have no chance against the best machines. It should not be overlooked that computers are always trained by teams of human specialists who program them in psychological areas like opening repertoire. Removing this benefit would eliminate their excellence.

Here we run the peril of upsetting the many meritorious chess organizers who have spent years trying to prevail upon the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that chess should be included as an Olympic sport. Lifting light pieces of wood or clicking rapidly on a computer monitor is not physically challenging work. As any quantity of photos from foregone high level chess events will demonstrate, chess players don’t always cut a lean, trim, muscular profile.

Here we try to make amends with those very same organizers who nearly convinced the IOC that chess is a sport. A game between two extraordinary chess masters is full of tension, where superior nerves can make the difference between an also-ran and a winner.

To date it is unquestionable that women have not performed as well as men in chess events. There are many possible reasons for this. One may be that male players are often expert at making female players feel uncomfortable at chess events. The Polgar sisters have gone a long way to convince the chess world that women can play very well. Perhaps one day we will discover that women can even play better than men. No one really knows.

People, particularly chess players themselves, say the darnedest things about chess and about chess players. People who want to call other people unpleasant names should better say,’ chess is only for nerds ‘, but this is plainly untrue. Here we run the peril of upsetting the many meritorious chess organizers who have spent years trying to prevail upon the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that chess should be included as an Olympic sport. As any quantity of photos from foregone high level chess events will demonstrate, chess players don’t always cut a lean, trim, muscular profile.
