Chess Instills Skills for Education, Life: Viswanathan Anand

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

Here is a nice report about World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand speaking about the benefits of chess. Anand says, "Playing chess enhances the memory, gives confidence, teaches problem solving, increases concentration!' We couldn't agree more.

The World Chess Champion said at an event to inaugurate a children's chess academy, in India, "Chess teaches you that all moves have consequences." He said chess students showed the students have more confidence.. gave better answers. They showed better aptitude to tackle subjects like maths and physics.

"Good mental training for studies, chess is not only an academic tool but fun as well," said Anand.
