Well if he checkmates on the first move, not only will that be backwards, it will be fucking impressive.

I suck at chess...no memory for strategy, and it's not a forgiving game to those why play in the moment rather than several moves ahead.

But we can play one day and see how it goes

Used to play a lot in high school and was in the chess club, never took it all to seriously though. All four years in chess I was either school champ or runner up. But I'm from a small school so opponents were probably not too good to base my skill off of. I never learned strategy, always played the game based off my opponent. I always new what I was trying to do, but changed strat every game dependant on the opponent.

I was in the Chess Club in High School too. Just like every other sport I played (yes it is a fucking sport and I got a Letter for it, jockos, so I don't want to hear it), it's competitive and you're under the same pressure to always perform. However, as one discovers later in life, you really do things because you enjoy them. When it starts to get that ridiculously competitive, it becomes less enjoyable. Whatever your game is, play it for fun, and don't take it so seriously. When they start paying you $7 a year to play, THEN you can take it seriously.
