Chess is my favorite board game. When I was a teenager, my uncle gave me a chess computer, which sparked my original interest. However, it wasn't until my 40s that I began playing more frequently, thanks to chess.com and YouTube. Online platforms like Chess.com make it easy to play competitive games, and YouTube is a treasure trove of chess knowledge. This combination helped me realize just how special and rich the game of chess truly is.
