Kindred’s Special: Is Chess Just a Game?

When Evgeny Tomashevsky was handed a series of questions regarding his thoughts about chess and life in general, he had this to say about a few that I thought you might enjoy.

What is the best thing that was ever said about chess?

Chess is for people who want to make an intellectual effort, who have respect for the game.–Boris Gelfand.

Is knowledge of chess useful in everyday life?

 Definitely yes, but only up to the level at which chess hasn’t become a profession yet.  After this, things are not so clear.

This last question and answer holds a similar spirit within my own being.  But here, I would like to add that knowledge of chess history helps to sustain interest and understanding of its colorful past and, that without it, leaves a void for the amateur enthusiast.

    Needed to create you a very little remark in order to say thank you as before on your breathtaking secrets you’ve provided on this page. It’s so seriously open-handed with you to give unreservedly what exactly a few people would’ve made available for an e-book to end up making some dough on their own, notably now that you could have done it if you desired. The principles also acted to be the great way to be sure that some people have the same dreams similar to my own to find out many more with respect to this matter. I think there are a lot more fun periods ahead for folks who discover your blog.
