that was amazing. especially the part on tactic and strategy. the writer is wonderful. i have a question though. How do you credit the IQ in true life compared to success in chess. at least among those who love chess.

Well, the relation between chess and IQ has always been a controversial one.

I don't claim chess makes people smarter, but it is true that it helps a lot when it comes to promoting and strengthening essential virtues  in the development of your mind, such as concentration, attention, logic, planning, etc.

useful program

arena 2.0.1 setup is best free chess program. it contains 9 strongest chess engine.
spike engine is solve puzzele correctly plus strongest engine. it defeat nagaskaki 5 easily ( i set 3 seconds per move nagaskaki and spike - disable ponder in two programs )
arena user interface is excellent. after install arena 2.0.1  i uninstall nagaskaki and pawn2
