2021 Norway Chess | Round 7 | Commentary by Judit Polgar, David Howell and Dirk Jan ten Geuzendam



People, especially chess gamers themselves, state the darnedest features of chess and also about chess gamers. Right here are a few of our favored misconceptions about the royal video game. Several of these expressions are unquestionably off-target, a few of them are ignorant impression, as well as several of them are controversies that may or could not stand.

Chess may not be the easiest game to pick up, however it is far from one of the most excessive. You have to understand the actions of the six pieces, where the object with the tiniest value, the Pawn, has one of the most complicated relocations. Then you need to memorize the guidelines about striking and also defending the King, including castling. There are a few rules about games where neither player wins. One side of this misconception is reputable—- it is difficult, really hard, to discover to play chess well. One player in a hundred achieves supremacy.

There is some link between chess talent and general intelligence. Minimum smarts are required. Cats and dogs will never make out the basics; no one has tried giving lessons to dolphins and chimpanzees. 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. Some very clever people delight in playing but never progress beyond novice.

This isn’t a misstatement, since chess is for everyone. People who want to call other people unpleasant names should better say,’ chess is only for nerds ‘, but this is plainly untrue. 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. Chess has been included as a medal sport for the 2006 Asian Games. A game between two extraordinary chess masters is full of tension, where superior nerves can make the difference between a winner and an also-ran. Grandmasters have been acknowledged to lose a lot of weight during the action of a month– long contest.

To date it is unquestionable that women have not performed as well as men in chess events. 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.

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.
