    Chess can be very tiring, especially once you start playing entirely on strategy and position. It gets much, much more difficult than banking on the mistake of another person.

    I'm very competitive and aggressive in chess. I'll climb over my side of the table and damn near knock it over, when I get really excited. I love playing someone how's just a little better than me. It gives me the motivation for playing aggressive and push him to his limits. I also love that he makes me pay when I make a mistake, and I learn from it. I get real excited when I can set a trap, create a lose-lose situation for my opponent and/or push my players over on his territory, threatening his every move.

    EDIT: I like fast paced chess.

    I don't even know how to play chess. I never ever played it. I never cared about or needed to read the rules.

    It would be interesting to analyze certain players' personalities and styles of playing to see if there's any correlation between the two.
    There's been a chess thread recently about the p/j personality dichotomy and chess playing styles. Take my next sentences with a grain of salt; the sample size was tiny.

    Those with J tend to prefer closed positions, where there are fewer options, and detailed thinking and precision becomes more important.

    Those with P tend to prefer open positions, where there are more options. Here, the ability to think of the unexpected becomes more important.



    Personally, I have neither the time nor the will to become an expert at chess. I might not play for weeks or months at a time, so I, err... suck.
    My playing style is very aggressive. I like to open up with a pawn trade to open up the board, then attack with minor pieces and queen. I generally make sacrifices in order to attack. Basically, if my opponent can survive the first 25 moves or so without losing much material, he'll eventually win.

    Problem is, I think ahead 5-6 moves, then forget the initial ones.

    I used to be pretty big on chess, thanks for reminding me because I have forgotten the game that I cherished as a child. I was in the chess club in elementary school and was often chosen to be one of the three to play a chess tournament. It was a lot of fun, but I stopped playing more than ten years ago and I am afraid that I'm pretty bad at it now

    Sometimes I wish that I stuck with some of my former hobbies. Oh well...
    Between that cigarillo and sticking my finger down my throat to see if I could DT, I feel like puking RN.
