Does Luck Come into Chess?

    Isnt every won or lost game based on the fact that one player missed something the other did not?  Yes GM's have a power beyond most, but the same is true with them.  So in a way every game involves luck, which I understand as the lack of perfection.  No game is played 100% perfect, but the ratio of luck to raw skill can fluctuate.  A GM playing a novice will win with 99.999999% skill, but playing against another GM, that number will drop.  Things will be missed just like they are among novice players. The only difference is that the GM's misses are far more advanced.  Things are relative.

    luck = fundamental law of nature

    what does that mean?

    To me it means that there is no perfection in the universe.  Hence, luck = lack of perfection, or omnipotence = fundamental law of nature

    Yes, chess has just as much luck as poker and magic the gathering.

    i wouldn't say that, i usually get better cards and better dice-rolls when playing chess Foot in Mouth

    i mean, we roll the dice and shuffle the pieces and deal them at the start of every chess game, right? Laughing
