Getting serious with chess

Do you know how to play chess? It seems that chess has been a fad lately, when we visited my in-laws, my husband’s uncle up to his nephews are up for a chess tournament. I thought it’s just their family thing at that time but when I went out to the streets, even their neighbors were playing chess game too. My in-laws said that they sleep late at night because they’re addicted playing, and to hone their skills, they even bought a book about chess strategy. When we went to the mall last weekend, lo and behold, I was surprised to see a life-size chess board! And there were men who were playing at that time, I knew I had to take a shot using my phone’s camera…

Now, I’m convinced that a lot of people are getting involved in chess. Those men playing above made it even more exciting by placing a bet on who should win. I think playing chess with a life-size chessboard is more difficult because you can’t see the whole view. But seeing the two players move above the chessboard makes the chess game less boring.
