>>25753630 I'm not even sure that's true 2bh. Girls seem pretty universally turned off by logical/analytical intelligence if it's used for anything but making money (I think they also don't get exactly appreciate how autistic a lot of guys - even socially successful ones - are when it comes to developing their social skills also, e.g. sharing pickup techniques is really just pattern finding and logic).
I have been playing chess for the last 10 years as a not serious contender. I have not read a single book on chess. I reached the point of my skill that I cannot improve any further without reading books. You can play against a grandmaster computer but that gets boring as shit. I have done it hundreds of times in a row and you don't really learn anything. It's a fun game when you play with other players that are your same skill level, but not expect to improve by just playing games.
Chess is not a logical game. It's an autistic memorizing game. The only way to move upwards, is to memorize EVERY SINGLE FUCKING GAME that has happened with grandmasters. I do not recommend this game to anyone unless you want to spend more time reading games than actually playing it. Of course you can not give a fuck playing but then you're just a filthy casual.
No not at all. Why would it? To a non chess girl being shitty at chess and being really fucking good at chess would be basically the same thing and getting real good takes years of dedication. Chess girls probably don't actually care how good you are but good luck meeting any at all.
>>25753555 OP i dont think you understand, the only way to attract women is to be a 10/10 Chad. It dosnt matter what hobbies you have at all. If a 300 pound robot won a surfing competition women wouldn't care because he isn't Chad. But if Chad were to say his hobbies were shitposting on r9k, women would find that extremely interesting.
>>25754818 I'm >>25754493, I was never particularly good at chess, but you have to recognize your mistakes. For the first 3 years of my chess career, I did nothing but lose. I kept playing higher leveled players and then eventually got really good(I always ranked middle in tournaments because I wasn't really good in my prepubescent years.)
Here are good rules to abide by.
1. Develop your pieces. Pieces that aren't developed are useless. 2. Take control of the center meaning the most middle 4 squares at the center of the board. 3. See why your opponent makes moves. If you are able to figure out what your opponent is doing, you can avoid it or counter it. 4. Look for weaknesses in the enemy's spot. 5. Realize that chess like anything, takes fucking forever to get good at unless you're a prodigy which you're not. 6. Play for fun. Because stressing over a board game ruins the purpose of playing board games.
>>25755174 When you get really good at chess, that's the only thing you do because you give up all your desires to endlessly grind chess to be better at it.

lol what a maroon. Maybe if you actually picked up a book or two you'd realize that memorization is only the beginning of chess. Knowing the openings is the equivalent of knowing how to do the special and super moves in a fighting game.
It's not just openings, it's also endings, mid-games and other tips from chess masters. My point is that to be good at this game, you need to churn unnecessary effort to compete with other players who churned out unnecessary effort. when I first started playing, I thought chess was the ultimate demonstration in logic. Instead what I got is endless studying of the game to be considered a mediocre player.
Maybe I don't want to memorize a bunch of games for the rest of my life, so then I can play games similar to the ones I memorized. What I wanted is a game where both of us accumulated enough individual experience to see who can outwit the other while catching mistakes.
When Bobby Fischer's modification of Shufflechess led to Chess960, he felt that the current game's nature had too much intense memorization and didn't use any creativity or innovation. Which is what I'm going to play from now on.
>>25756260 You are wrong, its full logic, you have to learn basic contempt of how to play in endgame, like what is opposition. There are 30move theoritical endgames, but there is really small chance that you will have to play it. Like there is really small chance that you will end up with knight and bishop.
Even current world champion Carlsen is known of playing weird moves whitch often are critized by chess engines, so he can skip all theory preparation of his opponent.
But you are porbably 1200 elo. You can get to 2300 elo without need of memorization of openings.
