How to be a great chess player – Agnieszka Milewska, Londoner #93 of 1000


I’ve been playing chess for 25 years. I started
when I was 5 years old, and I’ve been playing up to now. This game is a game with an
opponent who I’ve never played before, and actually I was a little afraid about the game
because obviously he’s got a better grade than me. Every game is different, and in every
game it’s a problem you have to solve. Sometimes the game might be very calm and slow, then
you think the time is going quite slow but it is going faster than you think. Because
you’re concentrating on the board, and trying to resolve the problem and the time is going
faster than we’re thinking actually. Because sometimes you’re just playing slowly – normal
chess, but sometimes it’s very much like a fight. One move, one move, one move and you
never know who can win or lose. But that game, it was like a fight all the time because the one
time I make a very strong move, and he plays me back. It was quite interesting. Everyone
was watching that game because anything could happen and even me and my opponent, – we talked
about it after the game and we were not sure at all who will win that game because we were
like fighting all the time. It was a very interesting game. It was a really big
risk because up to the end of the game we didn’t know who will win that game and for
then actually I was in a better position and everyone was, – like my friend Jason was very
upset that I took a draw because he thought I was supposed to win that game in that position,
but I knew it was only a draw . I would love to play all my life as much as I can and as
long as I can and my plan will be to have a really high grade and to have got
to be a master.
