    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...

    Can't say I'm a master,

    ...Not That I Play It Much...

    The chess players in my life come in two distinct flavors: those who always win, and those you always win against. These are fairly rigid categories, and after my friends sorted out the pecking order of skill amongst ourselves, we basically stopped playing. None of us understand...

    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 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.
