    D-Trainee -- very challenging idea!  I want to disagree partly because I have spent a lot of my life writing computer programs to determine probabilities in horse racing.  So I came up with this:
    The process of playing chess, sports, and probably many other things  is what makes it valuable.  It is a workout.  When people excel in these games then they go into the entertainment sphere where they provide happiness to others who can marvel from their skill.  Got to have that coffee now.   :-)

    It's just logistics and finances. I can't justify 16 hours straight over the board when there isn't actually any chance of me earning a living behind it and I'm a person who needs money. I could start dedicated all my time into chess but I'm 32 and playing for only one year on and off. I'm never going to be able to make money from chess. With poker I can earn a living, teach others, play thousands upon thousands of hands a week without worrying about fatigue so much, etc. 

    Anyone else really like chess but leave the game for poker so that you could earn a living from the game? 


    Over the years, I have invested way more money into chess than I have ever won.  I wouldnt change a thing...I enjoy it to much.
