Developing Ability to win at Chess ~~ Generating Mindfulness & Compassion

  • 2 months ago · Quote · #21


    It should be common knowledge among chess players that "... playing 'hope chess' is losing chess."


    I agree wwith IM Jeremy Silman when he points out that chess is all patterns. In order to become a master one must learn these patterns, and the only way to do this is through rigorous daily training, going through hundreds of thousands of  master games quickly on a real board, studying masters' annotations slowly, and simply matching yourself against stronger and stronger opponents all the time instead of being a "... big fish in a small pond...."


    I believe all areas of philosophy help to maintain this level of discipline, so The Buddha's teachings apply here as they do in all aspects of life.

    I am here because I really believe that chess players are the last hope for humanity. Who else has the problem solving skills to do it?

    Who else has the Will to do it, since all chess players in the world can agree that the number one goal is to make sure we have safe places for a chess table?
