@Mods: not sure if this went in the sports arena, because chess isn't exactly a sport, but whatever. Anyways, I'm sure we have some chess players here. So why not discuss what we think about the game? Which openings you prefer, tips for midgame and endgame, why you like or don't like chess, how it compares to competitive Pokemon, etc etc. To start: My favorite opening is the French Defense, because it's kinda the only one I play, lol. On the White side, I find the King's Gambit to be interesting.
