"Saying theres luck in chess is like saying theres skill involved in poker" Big Smile

Nasty. Smile

But actually, when players run out of time, there IS some luck in chess.

yes chessplayers multitable much longer than pokerplayers. i once played against a chessplayer at university, i was one of 30 opponents at a time and he beat them all. after a player was eliminated everybody there could take his seat and start a new game. i think he won 70 matches that day and it was very impressive as he still had time to chat with the players. well, it was a professional and the other players were amateurs and hobby players, but i think in poker even phil ivey wouldn't win 70 heads-up matches against amateurs simultanously.

I know the rules and the pieces movements, and I can even replay a game on a board from notation, but I'm not very good at actually playing it. Everyone seems to be a lot of moves beyond me... Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

Used to play chess all the time, from the ages of 8 to 18 and got pretty good at it. After high school, kinda've stopped playing. If I was to pick it up again, I'd probably suck at it big time.

Like many people, i know the rules, but im not good at this game (even if i like brain/strategy games like poker).
For me, chess is to complex, i think its the perfect game for high potential people (with high IQ) since you have to represent yourself very difficult things...

I do not. I think chess is a part of common knowledge though, so I should learn it. Smile

Good old times... i remember playing chess for a while...
I don't think i was good but... i was winning nearly every match at kurnik.pl Tongue (i know nothing to be proud of Tongue).
But when i tried playing like half year ago i played just 1 match was playing with some donk and nearly lost it (in the end i won) but i am all the time talking to myself like "omg what did u done?" , "can't u saw that 3 sec earlier?" etc Tongue

Chess is a great game, I used to play it a lot and can still remember some of the moves I learnt, my dad taught me when I was young but stopped playing me once I beat him 5-0. There was a chess club at school which was run by this prick of a teacher, I was quite a cocky little s**t and on my first visit challenged him to a game, boasting how good i was, so he annouced to everyone that he'd "show me a thing or two". I whooped him something stupid like 16 moves, the class cheered and I never went back, I preferred kiss chase and football Smile

I never let that teacher hear the last of it though, which got be in trouble with the headmaster a few times. I remember laughing out loud in assembly the following year when it was anounced that he'd be taking the chess club again, I got detention for week Sad Worth it though.
