At the moment I'm finding chess to be relaxing.
It's more along the lines of 'mental whittling' where, if I need to take a break, I can play a game of chess against somebody within 50-85 points of me and see how I do. More often than not, I don't do anything spectacularly stupid. Though the Analysis Engine at times disagrees with me.
Note: If you miss a checkmate the Analysis Engine has MISSED MATE! in the readout.
Thanks, Analysis Engine.
