Chess - THE Game
Naturally, I like to win any game that I play, be it table-tennis, cards, footie, chess, anything. However, sometimes when I get really involved with a scintillating game of chess, I reach a point where I feel that the game itself is the winner; whether I come first or second then becomes somewhat of an irrelevance. I just marvel at the beauty of the game.
I should be interested to hear if any other players ever feel this way.
