    I used to play chess often, and I also played in a few tournaments. In my chess club I was the obvious winner of the local championship every year.

    However, I do not play in clubs anymore.

    Yes, I play chess. I've played in some tournaments but didn't take it too seriously. If you're really into it you have to memorise hundreds of opening positions and I found that too time-consuming.I sometimes play blitz (5 min per side) games on Yahoo, and that can be fun. 3:

    One of the stereotypes in the West seems to be that all Russians love chess...
    Chess is cool. I haven't played for about 5 years, but I used to be really good at it. I remember winning a chess tournament in school. :cupbronz:

    This is true, and I when I was younger, I spend hundreds of hours reading chess theory in order to beat my opponents. I totally forgot to enjoy the game itself, as I was more or less burried in hundreds of books. It finally turned me into a strictly tehcnical player completely lacking the unconventional initiative. I rarely won or lost a game but ended up in drawish endgames all the time. Not much fun.

    So when I finally realized that I would never become the world champion anyway, I put my books aside and started to play away from the mainline chess theory. I remember a strong opponent shouting 'Hey, you can't play like that!', when I completely broke the mainline and made a crazy, never seen before sacrifice in the opening moves. :laugh:

    But I started to enjoy chess again - and still do.

    I think Fischerandom is perhaps a good idea if one wants to get away from theory and get more into a clash of fresh intellectual strategy. I hope this style becomes more popular.

    I used to play chess, but I have not played much recently. I lost interest when none of my friends or family could defeat me. I have never read any books or studied opening theory beyond the first 3 moves.

    I occasionaly play on the playchess.com servers, and my rating is usually between 1500-1600. It might be fun to form an online Nordish chess club. Skadi's arcade section was popular at one time.

    I recently read this article http://chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp?newsid=2431 . It appears that all races are equal, with one exception... Any ideas on why there are not a lot of Nordics among the elite chess players?

    In order to be exceptionally good at chess, one has to have a deviant, subversive and dangerous character - with the ability to mislead your opponent. That is why Jews normally do very well at chess.
