Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
very nice diary, Ted, thanks!

i wonder if there have been brainscans of chess masters, to study their mental architecture, to see if there are some conformities particular to this very refined skill. which lobes or hemisphere predominate, for example?

are chess masters possessed of greater memory power than other disciplines?

is there any other game or sport that requires similar attributes, such prolonged, disciplined, patiently focussed aggression?

plenty food for thought and still the vids to watch! too busy....
