I love the lighting in this, especially the reflection off the board. Quite captivating when you take the time to study it.

Ahh... the yin-yang zen of the chess match.

No words needed. Checkmate in twenty eight moves.

I've always wanted to learn how to play chess, but I always got intimidated by it. Guess I'll just stick with checkers. LOL!

Happy WW! My Wordless Wednesday

I don't play chess. My son is a good player. Just yesterday he was asking me for a crystal set while out shopping. It's too expensive for a kid.

Interesting angle. I wish I knew enough about chess to suggest a move.
