I used to love playing chess. Mostly against someone via computer more than actual board (though I think board is better, but sometimes difficult to find an opponent).

Unfortunately, I say used to as a chess partner I had passed away and just haven't found the joy in playing again. Kind of a shame, since I really did like playing.

When I did play, one benefit was I could almost feel my brain cells increasing .

So, for chess championship, is that an annual thing or is that more like boxing where there isn't a definite time for the championship bout? Just wondering.

I feel similarly about duplicate bridge with comaraderie added in.

I'm not a chess devotee, but I've wondered, if either the chess programs advanced far enough or these chest masters get even better, wouldn't every game end up a draw? Kind of like checkers?
