Go to my games

I proudly announce one of my addictions: chess

I “was” just a low/moderate player wasting lot of time with no serious play and no effort to improve, but one of the best things I could have ever done to myself is to streamline my addiction into proper time slots.  A very very strict “one hour” per day was one of my 2011 new-year-resolutions and to take it up all with enough seriousness. I implemented it razor sharp and it poured all the proficiencies on me. I love the interface and spend most of my chess time at chesscube.com and really thank them where I chanced upon to play some great opponents like chaxxxxdu, cexxxxa et al., whom & whose games no book can replace with or teach the essence as quickly.

chess simply gave me a superb avenue to relax, a great way to channel my brain’s idle-cpu-cycles and caused the greatest thing that can happen to me to know the fact that Life is nothing but a chess game.

I can’t explain more of how the philosophy of chess can be attributed to a common man’s daily routine, but I simply wanted this sweet addiction along with its assortments & accomplices to be part of my blog 😉

I will keep refreshing this page with couple of nice games I win (I have lost equal/more number of games as well) Some are filled with sacrifices, others with brutal offense and some more with a rock solid defense. Digging my database for this, but for now:

I was at rank 1684 playing Black against lxxxp (rank 1744): (you should see this match of huge sacrifices irking the opponent & finally timing him out )

    I am not at all chess fan but reading this post feels like playing at least one game . Good going Balu. Keep it going…

    • thank you sailu. pl try playing at least 15 mins per day. Do it daily even if it feels like boring in the beginning. You will surely like it and be benefited too. Why I was addicted is that every losing game proves how dumb my mind was and I would badly want to bounce back with a victory 🙂
