Why Chess is a Lost Art

In the recent “Chess960” tournament that just concluded in the world’s chess capital, the
thirteenth world chess champion Garry Kasparov criticized a move by the winner of the
tournament in that it was something he would “never have even considered.” And, indeed,
throughout our royal game’s history, there have been complaints by even the very best of
chess dying out because of the precise way that it’s approached. However, I don’t find many
of my peers sharing this viewpoint; in fact, it’s seemingly only those from the older
generations like Garry that lament the current state of our game. But I believe like them that
chess is a dead art, and to prove my view, I’d like to present an exception to the rule so to
speak and then to explain why it’s just that: a game where intuition plays the main part.
