I love chess. One day I asked myself why do I love chess so much? So for the answer I went to google (naturally; all the answers are there). Anyway, It all made sense. The reason I love chess. Its the same reason humans love the piano or guitar. If you think of someone in your life that loves to play an instrument, its not that different from the chess lover. They both practice and practice and play and play. They both know they will not make it to the top. Its unlikely they will ever make a CD or get picked up by a record label. Well, I'm not going to be a GM anytime soon; probably never.
