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.
So what is there to do?please take < 3 minutes to listen
just listen and breathe.
Whatever we do,must make us better human beings! In that sense, I believe Buddha,Jesus,Krishna are all relevant to Chess!
Can they help my endgame?
