Well, I can´t tell about magic and poker players, but I know for sure that chess players are quite a queer folk
ofc if someone comes that it years above others in knowledge he probably would look weird too.
seriously i personally believe those people who say authism are just folks who are jealous and thats why they have to invent stuff to comprehend the incomprehendible.
dont we have all those nice inventions for people that are superior??
one with a cool car has only a small one, other people who had success were just lucky.
other people are just good in one thing but in not others...
which is weird considering how many languages some top players speak and how well they can talk and convey others.
ITs just hilarious!! I personally if i wouldnt see it with my own eyes i would think those people who say autism dont even play chess and are just random folks that like to talk about stuff they have absolutly no clue about... well obvious most people are higher rated than me, but still thats would be what i believe
and as jon mentioned, its remarkable how formidable some chessplayers are in poker
I got 34
I am pretty sure it's unrelated, how good a chess player is will be done to many factors such as how hard they work/study, maybe even IQ, idk
