Is chess 95% skill, 5% luck? 99% skill and 1% luck? or what? What do you all think?
It's 10% luck, 20% skill, 15% conce... oh nevermind.
100% skill at least when it comes to the masters.To the rest of us we consider luck taking advantage of an error...but, there is no luck in chess just errors and taking advantage of them.
First we need to agree on the definitions of "skill" and "luck" (and "chess" for that matter) -- I'd argue it's 100% skill, but that's by my definition.
80% skill, 10% psychology, 10% physical fitness.
Does that make it 10% sport?
80%skill .20% Depend on the psychological state during playing even with masters chess.and about the luck !!!!!!!!!!!!you are MADE the luck by yourself
First you get the luck, then you get the skill, then you get the women.
50% skill - 25% genetic aptitude - 15% gumption & hard work - 10% luck per individual game.
u speak about the life .not about chess
Yeah, I'm pretty sure only the first two apply to chess.
i dont know .why is not anyone say about experience Although. it an important factor
I'd rather be lucky than good!!
omg .if u is good .that is meannnnnnnnnnnnn u is lucky.right
About 40% alcohol by volume.
Do not forget also!!!!!!!!!! much of it harmful heheheeee
Anish Giri once said: I can be lucky in chess. That is when a player suddenly gets a black out by an external factor and makes a blunder. But I reckon at top levels that only happens in 0,1% of all the moves they make.
95% of chess is 50% skill ,comprising of 15% memory,20% tactical insight,15% strategic planning the other 50% is all about experience,aptitude,concentration,psychological ability then there is 5% left that is based on luck comprising of 2.5% chance and 2.5 % karma.
Some have argued that body odor actually makes about 5 -15 % of any game but that is only about 42% of the 300 people interviewed which makes up only .00004 % of all chess players so there is a 99% chance of most people ignoring that .
That's about 10% of what I think.
Truly worthy of praise .well done !!!!!!!nice words
