hi I am a Go player of around 4k (perhaps 1700 elo?) and have just started playing chess (learned in childhood but never played much), because no one plays go and also go games are so long. I have tried multiple times to get into chess (as you see my account has been idle for many years) and have finally caught the interest! I am finding chess to be very visceral and cathartic compared to go and am enjoying it so far! i have a lot to learn, though I think some skills have transferred from go, such as reading (or as you say, calculating) and spotting multipurpose moves, but other than that it is a whole new world and I am enjoying exploring it!
