I just wonder that why chess is not included in the list of olympic games. chess is really an interesting game .It is a real battle between the two pieces.If one learn how to play chess he will surely become crazy about chess.And now my question is which country will win the cup if chess is included in the list of olympic games?i think the worldchampian vishwanath anand will surely get some medals to his country.

Why would chess be included in olympic games? It's not really a sport, it's more of a game and I think there are already enough international chess tournaments for players to compete.

surely, chess has all the needed flavour to be included in olympics. but it has to wait for some more time. it is certainly regarded as the best indoor game but its not a so popular game in world stage. fast n furious nature of modern games is surely killing the prospects of chess , mostly regarded as a cool n sober game. but lets hope , it will attract the eyes of modarn day sports' pundits and it will finally get its most deserved place at the biggest extravagenza in sports arena.. if it is included, then russia is undoubtly the best contender for the top post. but bulgaria is not far behind and also ukraine. india is a dark horse despite having anand in its side as no other player from india is never a threat for the top 20 players. but in individual events india has better prospect for gold through V. ANAND. In women section, china, georgia are best contenders for top post.

India is producing many chess players. But most of the players unable to participate due to lack of sponsorer but when we see towards game many people feel what is their only board and brain.But if u want to play at international level u need coach also for that u need money.due to all these reasons parents are also not encouraging their children.

hello there... well, just like you've said, if we learned how to play chess, we can become crazy about it... i also think that chess should included into the list of Olympic games... just like you, i think vishwanath anand will win the game because he's the world no.1 player in the world...
