I have recently started playing chess against my girlfriend. Only on Facebook I may add but chess is chess right? Well according to her no. You see in the past when we have played using a normal chess set at her parents house she has beaten me on all but one occasion (and she helped me work out checkmate in that game!). However out of 4 games on facebook she has been unable to win a single one.
So we are planning to invest in a cheap chess set to see if this theory s true. Maybe it's because I can read a 2D overhead view better than her (or she is better a reading a real chess board than me).
We shall see
