An ancient game recently rediscovered and also offered to children (also in extra-curricular courses version) as an alternative to the classic pastimes for free time.
Teaching children to play chess not only offers an alternative to the boredom of afternoons at home; but it presents a series of innumerable benefits from the point of view of the cognitive development of children.
Chess helps develop the logic skills of the player. Like all strategy games, in fact, they provide that those who play will be able to solve real problems as they arise, learning to remodel the solutions in a short time and based on the moves put in place by the opponent.
Concentration is key while playing chess. Because you must always keep an eye on the opponent’s moves, prevent them, block them. Distracting yourself can be fatal and will ultimately have a better chance of winning whoever manages to keep the level of concentration high for the longest.
COMPLIANCE WITH THE RULES
Like so many games, gchess is based on very strict rules which must be known and respected, while learning to respect the opponent. Cheating in chess is impossible. And luck is not an element of the game (as it could be in most card games).
Reasoning, self-control, ability to think quickly but thoughtfully… are key elements in achieving victory. Chess helps to increase these skills by strengthening them.
You don’t even need to comment. A game of chess is slow and can last several hours. Patience is put to the test several times (you must not be in a hurry in wanting to win, have patience while your opponent plays, know how to wait your turn …). Few games like chess they contribute to increasing this gift which seems to be absent in the new generations completely and immediately.
Remember the moves you have played and what your opponent has done it helps not to lose the thread of the game and not having to reinvent a strategy from scratch every time. In addition, chess contributes to improving visual memory, which together with the ability to concentrate and the development of logical thinking are key elements for achieving success.
The chess player has to trust himself. It must start from the assumption that it has all the tools to support the game and achieve victory. He has to believe in his ability to solve a problem.
