Gelfand Challenge Day 1 | Challengers Chess Tour | Nihal, Pragg, Gukesh, Leon



People, particularly chess gamers themselves, state the darnedest aspects of chess and concerning chess players. Below are a few of our favorite false impressions regarding the royal video game. Several of these phrases are absolutely off-target, several of them are uneducated impact, and some of them are disputes that may or might not be valid.

Chess might not be the simplest video game to pick up, yet it is much from one of the most expensive. You need to recognize the relocations of the six items, where the things with the slightest value, the Pawn, has the most intricate relocations. After that you have to remember the guidelines regarding striking as well as defending the King, consisting of castling. There are a few rules about games where neither player wins. One side of this myth is legitimate—- it is tough, extremely tough, to find out 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. Dogs and cats 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.

In fact, this isn’t a misstatement, since chess is for everyone. It is for nerds, boffins, eggheads, and geeks, 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.
