    The person who taught me how to play chess

    passed away last year. The game helped me through some rough time. So, in his memory I got a silver pawn necklace. It was definitely worth it. R.I.P Mark G.

    I Pick Chess Over Video Games Any Day.

    Whenever I happened to hear about chess I would ask people around me about it and they would say things like "that's a hard game to learn". For them maybe. I was a teenager, probably 16. My friend Patrick came and taught me all the rules and we played. By the third game I won. It...

    I play online chess very regularly,

    at icc.com. I like the patterns, I like the battle, i like the pressure. I often try to find ways to apply it to real life but struggle to do so in the literal sense. I can only hope the abstract ideas somehow help me to make better sense of the world.
