Do you know how to play chess game? I know how to play game but I don't know how to win. I know how to move the pawns, rooks, horses, bishops, queen and king but unlucky fir me I dont have the experience, patience and the strategical know how to kill the king. That is why I'm so amazed with these children know how win and play the game. I guess the secret is to nurture them while they are still young. The photo was taken durung the chess tournament in our city.

and also patience, waiting for hours for the opponent's next move. and its not me at all, maybe this is the good reason why I only know how to play the game.

My guess is, anyone with a very good memory, would have a strong chance to be a winner of this sort of game. I have never learned since I have a very short memory. (I did play something similar when I was a child, and constantly lost to a friend who could remember 1001 moves.)

1001 moves, that is really a memory game, I can only memorize up to 3 moves and lost after 10 moves, he he.

@ilocosboy When the gift of memory is not given, the person is often blessed with some wits, in order to survive. Guess we are the ones who could think a bit (just a bit) faster than the average (just enough to get out of certain sticky situations! ).
