chess and physics

Post by tweetie_brid » Sat Sep 08, 2012 12:06 am

Just curious if any chess majors also like to play chess.

Are there any Expert, Class A or even Master level players who visit this forum?

I really admire the dedication it takes to achieve chess greatness.

I hope all chess majors like to play chess...

I've been playing chess on an amateur level for maybe 5~10 years, but I dropped for Japanese chess (which gives more space to strategy). Also, when coming back to "normal" chess, the board looked so tight (8² for chess, 9² for Japanese chess, and that makes a heck of a difference)!
