2021 Saint Louis Rapid & Blitz: Day 5



People, specifically chess gamers themselves, state the darnedest things concerning chess and concerning chess gamers. Right here are some of our preferred misconceptions concerning the royal game. A few of these expressions are certainly off-target, some of them are uneducated impact, and a few of them are conflicts that may or might not be legitimate.

Chess might not be the easiest game to get, yet it is much from one of the most expensive. You have to recognize the steps of the 6 items, where the item with the least importance, the Pawn, has one of the most complicated moves. You have to memorize the rules about attacking and 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 tough, really difficult, to find out 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. 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.

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. 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.
