Is it possible?

Posted: March 31, 2015 in Uncategorized

I am a fan of playing chess. I am also a fan of winning at chess. I wish I could say that I win as often as I play, but I cannot. I lose more games than I win but I like to think I learn. I am beginning to be able to spot certain traps and I am starting to understand which pieces should be played in the middle of the board and which ones can be played on the flanks.

Sometimes in chess it can be easy to get narrow minded and stick with one plan. I find myself doing this more often than naught. I will plan on creating a mate combination with my rook and queen and will disregard all other options and I usually loose one of the pieces. I am trying to work on being more flexible with chess and see all the possibilities out there on every move.

Chess is played on a board with 64 squares and each player starts with 16 pieces. With this finite amount of squares and pieces there are; 400 different possible positions after one move each. There are 72,084 different possible positions after two moves each. There are over 9 million different possible positions after three moves each.

So it is very important to be flexible when playing chess as it is in life at work or home when facing problems. See life is full of many more possibilities.  You just have to be flexible.
