    Ah, but chess players lose their sanity far more often.

    Linux, it goes both ways! While many great players seem to "lose it", chess and other thinking games and activities keep the mind sharp and prevent the onset of dementia, Alzheimers and other brain diseases.

    I would completely disagree with your assertion that there are more good chess players than footballers or tennis players.

    Maybe you just appreciate a lower standard in chess because you can relate to it?

    That's pretty rude.  Especially considering the OP's rating is far higher than yours. Tongue Out

    footballers/tennis players/ cricketers (and such outdoor sportsperson) suffer injury which hampers their career - chessplayers do not cause it is an indoor game. Only hazard with chess that i see is the choking hazard printed on the chess box!!! 

    Can we compare apples with maples? If we can then we should!!!

    I have played SVC on this site and say it does take some endurance and coordination of various activities. And if you add in that your a chess addict your hand can get stuck in the shape of the mouse for 2-3 after you stop playing. I developed this when playing 2 minute games at another site it did not show much then. It became a problem here.

    As for the mental side, sometimes i do take things to stay awake even if i am going to online for just 2 hrs. Lack of focus leads to blunders. And sometimes they come in packs across several games. Grrrrr.

    Blitz and Bullet requires rapid motion. During this across 10 games and everyday = 70 games. 40 moves a game = 2800 moves across a short period of time.  Then divide that by seconds. Ouch. Then look at doing that for a year.
