What are the benefits of playing chess?
According to Grand Master Abhijit Kunte who started playing chess at the age of 8, the right age of learning chess is 5! Having completed his graduation whilst playing the national chess tournament, Abhijit Kunte believes that chess is not a distraction but a contributing factor towards getting better grades!
Here are a few reasons why he believes that the game of chess helps students in life and their studies –
1. Chess helps you focus - A chess player can make the right 30 moves and if his concentration falters even for a minute can make a tiny mistake which could potentially cost him the whole game! In order to win one must give it his undivided attention which is a life skill that chess teaches.
2. Helps develop creativity - It’s believed that your true character is revealed when you play a game of chess because chess is all about strategizing. If a person is outgoing, they may start the game boldly and aggressively as opposed to a person who is shy. Chess is all about how you make the game personal to you and display your character.
3. Helps kids realize the consequences of their actions - Chess teaches kids that every action has a consequence. Whatever move they play on the chessboard is a move they have to stick with even if it turns out to be the wrong one which is similar to real life. Learning this at an easy age will help kids behave accordingly.
