Studying chess in the bathroom doesn't improve your skills quickly. Playing chess on Saturdays on the giant chessboard with people applauding your so-so games is good for your ego. To see the whole game on this board you have to be high up so I've got a decided advantage being 6'8". Rating, schmating. Play for fun.

Chess is more than a game; it’s a sport, -a mental martial art- and a worthy lifetime pursuit. It repays manifold the energy & time we put into it.
