The Wonders Of Online Chess - Articles Surfing

The internet has effected us all, the whole world is changed by the internet and its power of communication, one of the most amazing examples of the power of the internet is the change it has brought to the game of chess, and the changes that are about to shake the old world traditional games is just beginning to emerge out of the turmoil that the internet gaming culture has created.

Chess has always been known to be a game of minds, the power of mathematical thinking and the understanding of the enemy strategy and future moves was in the heart of the game that was invents in ancient Persia and played by millions of people around the world for centuries. In modern times society has decided to promote chess as a game for the masses and not as it was portrayed for many year as a game for the high society and intellectual elite, this has created an overwhelming passion for chess and has indeed made chess a global game that can be played by all without relation to social standings and educational pedigree. The same technique was used for promoting tennis and later golf to the weaker levels of society, as a way of distancing the stigma that an activity acquires and making it possible for all to enjoy and compete equally.

The game of chess however is very different to other sports and activities, it can be played over long periods of time and playing partners can play against others while their board at home still holds a very delicate chess situation with a completely different competitor. There was a time in which it was very popular for movies to show how friends play chess one against the other on the phone, when they are actually miles away or even in different continents, and the reality today is that the same thing has actually happened, now people can play against anyone, anyone in the whole world.

By logging into mass chess playing rooms in the internet one can find competitors and play against them, learn new tactics and make friends from all over the world, what was once done only in chess conventions and meetings is being done right now all over the world, by using the internet as a immediate chess playing tool. This new opportunity for the ancient game is another landmark on its ever-growing popularity in the world, now chess is heading for a completely impersonal era where players will compete without shaking each others hands before the game, they will be physically apart.

Visiting the chess rooms online will reveals a whole new chess community that is thriving in the cyber world, one should experience the passion of online chess if only to whiteness players playing around the clock with others like them on different time zones around the world. Like the legendary sand bird the game of chess rises to the technological challenges over and over again, making chess played over and over again in different centuries by different people in all so many different ways, chess is truly the king of games.
