Chess provides us with three facinating roles -- player, coach, and researcher.
During the game we place our hope in the coach and players. After the game the researcher seeks to instruct the coach for the next event.
Everyone works for a good outcome. Researcher, coach, and players all look forward to creating memorable, if not beautiful, events on the board.
And if that magical moment arrives on the squares "everyone" feels very much alive, the pulse quickens, and some might even sweat!
What a game!!
