The Chess board and Life - I

  1. A wrong move can do you in and be very costly.
  2. You got to keep playing. Are you ready for the next move?
  3. It is often tempting to make a move – think of all the possible traps!
  4. One move at a time. Rarely otherwise.
  5. That was a sure trap. You figured it out…
  6. You got to follow the rules. Each piece has it's unique style.
  7. You have to 'sit through the match' to win it.
  8. Never underestimate your opponent.
  9. Sometimes to elicit the level of your opponent, make a reckless move.
  10. If the opponent is repeatedly making stupid moves unable to acknowledge - that's the sign of an unworthy opponent. 
  11. Sometimes pawns dont matter much, but they are often the most useful.
  12. Often what you see on the board is not what you get.
  13. You can go a long way, but then your own pawns are blocking you.
  14. It is not easy to checkmate. More easy to check.
  15. Sometimes it is hard to keep playing - but the sharpest, grittiest mind wins!
  16. Think upto 10, 20, 30 moves ahead???
  17. The next move is based on a future consequence!
  18. Reckless playing will lead to a loss, unless the opponent is also equally reckless.
  19. And lastly the board is not everything; it’s all in the mind.
  20. What is your next move?


  1. Hahaha! Sounds almost like Chess is like life! Or maybe, it IS!
