If you are a chess enthusiast, keeping tabs on all the latest international
chess tournaments, or are an experienced player, that's just great, but the

ideally, all schools are represented with a chess team for school spirit.

for your school's chess team.

those who know something about chess but may have less experience with the software.

all who encounter it. Those new to chess should realize that it offers a great depth

may be attributable to India:
"Chess is a sea in which a gnat may drink, and an elephant may bathe."
