Chess reflects so much of life!
Pins. Forks. Skewers. Gambits. Etc. Chess reflects so much of life. I know someone who cannot leave his work because he has to protect someone in his post. He is pinned to his present work unless he does something. And who has not experienced being offered bargain sales that later proved to be deceptions? That is why learning and playing the game trains the mind and builds character. We learn how to win and how to graciously accept defeats in life. We learn how to plan and how to behave under pressure. And so much more.
