Is chess easier or harder than math?

    As you've said in your opening post, gotta have love in order to succeed in either. But i'd say Math is harder (Analytical Geometry is the highest math i'd achieved in high school) as studying Rueben Fine's Practical Chess Openings-in Descriptive Notation-was definitely easier.

    Chess is 2 dimensions, math studies infinite dimensions. Both uses visualization in mind. Try to visulaize this 6 dimensions thing :5x2x4x1x8x10. What do you see?

    Chess is easy to learn but hard to master, Math is hard to learn and impossible to master.

    Chess is math at its heart.
