    Yeah, alright, I like me a philosophical discussion as well, I was just bemused to find on on this comment thread, and about a polite triviality that we say so often we forget we are saying it. Not that I'm complaining mind, I may even join in myself if it gets strange or interesting enough here.

    guysguysguys, I'm pretty sure that wishing 'good luck' is just a piece of politeness, lets not have a philosophical discussion shall we?

    And actually, in chess, luck is required. You need luck to not have your power/Internet

    You need luck to not have someone accidentally pull the fire alarm and distracting you while you're under time trouble (has happened to me)

    I agree with Covenant-Son. In chess you don't need luck. I always wish my opponents a good game at the beginning of a game (online chess). In real life you shake hands and I think if you play online chess you still should welcome your opponent. So good game to everybody.

    I don't need luck. I need to play well and be patient before I blunder the game away. I do no wish " luck" to anybody because it is an empty word that means absolutely nothing.

    What is "luck" anyway? It sounds like an evolutionary word that threw the dice before space was and presto, the "lucky" universe was birthed. Lol!
