    Blitz chess is another level of chess, but entertaining even so, when we don't have those long hours to play the regular game. I am average player, to go above that a lot if dedication is necessary.

    Chess was banned because it could form rivalries? Something tells me there is a little more to that story and now I am really curious about that so I might just have to go look that one up.

    Different religions generate different habits that we fail to understand, but history has taught us that we should just respect differences.

    Thanks for the update. Funny enough most of the world prefers collective sports over individual ones. I do wonder why.
