    a men who can defeat his own  fears; can conquer victory! Fear of loosing, fear of deception fear of defeat against another opponent. fear of death, even checkmate. like in chess and life is not always about rainbows and butterflies, to some victory is whats important  but learning from mistakes is a great virtue. a real chess player is one who accept defeat falls down many times learns to get up. what can a man actually learns from victory? For it takes defeat to understand if not u will always make the same mistake over and over" ----
