Warning: Chess Kills!

It's usually when I find myself in a winning position that my heart begins to beat at a faster than normal rate. It always worries me when I feel like that. Sometimes, it feels like I'm about to explode with excitement. Well now we know that all this physical stimulation can sometimes lead to death. No joke!

In Canada, a couple of guys died apparently from playing chess.

Geoff Mueller reports.

Of course, as has been well said - 'Chess is difficult. You have to be prepared to kill people'.
The fact is of course, that the killing referred to is the killing of your own chess men. Its once we get the concept of sacrifice that we really start to move forward in chess games.
Other milestones? Room on the board, command of the center. Mind Reading helps too.
