For those of you who do not know yet, I am actually a chess player.

When I was 5 my granddad taught me how to play and when I was 10 or 12 I got 3rd place in the regional championships. That was the time I beat my granddad in chess and he did not like to play with me anymore. I believe he must have been way in his 80ies by then.

Anyhow, interesting article on chess here in the Psychology Today. So it has nothing to do with logic if you are a good chess player?

Since chess is very time intensive, I started playing online chess at the IECC. I have been a member for good 5 or 6 years now and every time I get back to my initial ranking of 1000, I drop rapidly again. Maybe I am just too logic about it?
