People, particularly chess players themselves, claim the darnedest points regarding chess and also about chess gamers. Here are some of our favored misconceptions regarding the royal video game. A few of these sayings are undoubtedly off-target, some of them are uneducated impact, and several of them are conflicts that could or could not be valid.
Chess may not be the easiest game to pick up, but it is far from the most prohibitive. There are a few rules about games where neither player wins. One side of this myth is legitimate—- it is difficult, very difficult, to learn to play chess well.
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, geeks, boffins, 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 a winner and an also-ran.
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.

The Finals of the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour begins today with Carlsen, Duda, So, Mamedyarov, Aronian, MVL, Radjabov, Artemiev and Giri, Nakamura fighting for the prize fund of $300,000.
It’s a round-robin of 10 players facing each of their rivals once over the course of 9 rounds, with each match starting with 4 rapid games where the players have 15 minutes for all their moves plus a 10-second increment from move 1. If the match ends in rapid chess the winner gets 3 points and the losing player 0.
Only if the match is tied 2:2 do we get a blitz playoff, with two 5+3 games. If still tied there’s a single Armageddon game, where White has 5 minutes to Black’s 4, but a draw counts as a win for Black. There are 2 points for the winner of a playoff and 1 for the losing player.
