Everyone recognizes a board of Chess when they see it. Many know the movements of the pieces and even know how to play. Chess is known as the "game of science" or also "of the Intelligence".

¿Ajedrez e inteligencia van de la mano?

Undoubtedly, it is a strategy game, where you have to think not only how to beat the opponent, but also how not to let yourself be beaten by it. To do this, is it necessary be smart to know how to play?

Answers may differ. In this article we will take as such a study from Oxford University and Brunel in the United Kingdom, which took the case of 57 young players.

Los resultados dieron datos sorprendentes: la práctica se anteponía a la inteligencia; esta última no resultó ser el factor fundamental, incluso hasta resultaba un aspecto negativo.

Pero más allá de los estudios, las pautas para ser un good chess player se basan en una buena memoria, creatividad, inteligencia, práctica y la experiencia. Todo esto, con mucha motivación y voluntad.

Lo dijo Edison una vez: ‘La genialidad es un 10% de inspiración y un 90% de transpiración’. Otro porcentaje podría ser 45% Inteligencia, 45% Práctica, 10% Voluntad y motivación.
