    There are a lot of sports that aren´t in the Olympics... perhaps Chess is not there mainly for organizational purposes... it needs lots of days which the olympics don´t get. Maybe, as Rugby, which will enter the Olympics in the Seven format, maybe chess has better chances with Rapid or Blitz rather than with standard

    It is a sport as there is a sport result, training and competition. As for the Olympics, it might soon be there, it depends on us.

    "A sport for the mind" as Fischer would say.

    Chess is not a sport. Chess is a game and requires a lot of attention. It would be in the olympics if it was a sport.

    Seems like the Inititave was not enough. Future calculation and awarness of whites own weakness (First game) was needed. The back rank hindered the attack and left black with counterplay. There is Tactics and then there is long range strategy

    This happened to me in a game. I thought I was winning but I let my opponent get his rooks onto the 7th rank and before I knew it the game was over. Excellent video! I truely enjoyed this video very much. More, more, more... Keep em coming!

    Absolutely fantastic lecture. The first game is amazingly beautiful and terribly painful for the white player. But it shows that chess is like football - you have to score that "penalty kick" - ie, find the winning combinative blow - otherwise your brilliance will not translate into points at the score board. All my sympathies to White, although we have to recognize Black only did his duty - to hang out as best he could.
