BOTH THE PLAYERS IN A CHESS GAME GOT EQUAL POWER TO START WITH?
In a chess game both starts with 16 pieces,so we say the game is fairly equal.But I don't think we start with equal things.
A image showing me with Vishy Anand would no doubt surprise you(if u have played even a single board of chess with me) and if asked u will answer that "nice playing with Vishy" should be my comment.If I am a bit more serious(or shamed to confess lose at ease) I would say "I went to play for experience only".
So we see that when starting the game I would think myself luckiest person to play with him which later on shall (not will) reign over my game plan and playing.If u r ranked much below someone in ranking u cannot play the game freely.
My point is that we r not having same intelligence (otherwise there was no chess no puzzle),experience and obviously mental condition.Game playing varies as these varies.I experienced all these factors myself.
Often we compare battles with chess but differ when we talk of comparative power.Like life playing here is also with different powers but we have to adjust it during gaming.
Most importantly and lastly,we should enjoy the battle of our life as well as chess.
You,my friend, r free to comment here that will, no doubt,enrich my thoughts.
Enjoy and have a good day.
