Any Chess players here?

Postby Masato » Tue Feb 21, 2017 1:37 am

Hey all

I hated chess as a kid, my older brother and my dad would always play and I found it boring as fuck, didn't have the attention.

But a few years ago I taught my wife's nephew how to play and he loved it, so we kept playing and I started having a lot of fun. He came back to vist from Brasil again over christmas and was really good, we were an equal match. Now my son plays too and is also getting pretty good and we steal a game whenever we can.

Anyways, its just a new hobby I've found and am suddenly interested in the whole culture and lore/history etc.

Gonna post a bunch o stuff here for archiving for later, maybe there are some chess players here who can add to it. I am guessing for fans of the game there is a lot of cool shit about it to learn

You kidding? I play at least 10 games a day. Had some luck with a colleague at my current school, he plays chess and does muay Thai. And we're neighbors, Benwahwah has met him.

Let me know if you're down to play, I used to play a lot but haven't played regularly in years.
People say they all want the truth, but when they are confronted with a truth that disagrees with them, they balk at it as if it were an unwanted zombie apocalypse come to destroy civilization.

Not me I'm afraid Masato. I have a lazy undisciplined brain that roams where it will on it's own time.

It would hate me if I were to take up a game like chess I'm afraid.

I'm guessing it is Marcu then? Is he any good at chess?
