    It includes strategy and brain power. You cannot be strategic if you are not smart. You do not have to be intelligent, but being smart goes a long way in chess.

    In high school our chess team captain got beat up after we won the competition at another school. It's a rough sport.

    chess is about tactics and strategy. it s not always a game of intellegence but also of knowledge because a better prepared player will win imediately just at the opening phase of the game. chess is also about mathematics as you have to solve problem along the way so you have to be exact in calculation...but sometimes intelligence and knowledge are irrelevant because you can make your chess move base on what feel or intuition..that s why tne beauty of chess is infinite... it is a very complex game ever invented by man!

    Some players are good at it. The rest is not.

    Chess interests many people because it is very complex. There are so many different options for moves, it is not clear to most people how to play best. There is no one strategy that will usually make you win. So it is a real challenge.
