Why do you love chess?                    Пост на Русском
I like chess because they are beautiful!

Here is a story
Once when 8th World Champion Mikhail Tal played against GM Antoshin  he thought at some point "If there was a rook on c8 ..."

Unreal position

But in reality, there was no rook on c8 in the position. Somehow Tal did not find a win. But there was one, and it was nice :).  Tal liked to show both positions to his friends afterwards.

real position

And here is a bonus! Unique beauty! I spent about 10-15 minutes to solve this one right.
