    Not as often as I should – only found out about en passant move about 2 years ago, blissfully ignorant before that.

  • you should try Shuuro

    Got me interested in chess again.

    Not one single competitive chess player who has kept playing at club or competition level has ever suffered from Dementia.
    Only found that fact out last week during a conversation with someone doing a study

  • Heard something about this on Radio 4 this morning. well educated people are less likely to suffer from its effects, even though they may still have it at the same level as someone else. Heavier brain weight has something to do with it.

    Proof nerdy games are good for you!!

  • Sam Flanagan

    Try Bobby Fischer! Is he the exception that proves the rule?

  • joeCanuck

    You beat me to it ,Sam. Not just dementia, but paranoia to boot.
