Why does one play chess? That is a good question. There are many reasons why I play. I remember my grandad teaching me one day how to play this marvelous game. Since that day I have been hooked. I play with him whenever I can and it is even more fun every time I play with him. Whenever someone says that it's boring I always say its fun. People may give me weird looks because of that but it's true. It's so much fun to be able to see the small tactical things and being able to beat my opponent thanks to them. That skill has also helped me in real life. When I'm on the lacrosse field playing goalie I see things that I may not have seen if I had never played chess. It has made me smarter and more patient. That is why I play chess
