I don’t have the slightest problem in acknowledging that my wife [Rea] possesses a much higher degree of emotional intelligence than I do.

Here are a few things I’ve learned about life by playing chess.FIDE also organizes the Women's World Championship, the World Junior Championship, the World Senior Championship, the Blitz and Rapid World Championships, and the Chess Olympiad, a popular competition among international teams.The game of chess has a storied history dating back to about 600 AD, with many momentous events in those 1500 years.The city also hosted the 17th Chess Olympiad in 1966, won by the Soviet Union’s super team of Petrosian, Spassky, Tal, Stein, Korchnoi, and Polugaevsky.Of course, the most famous Havana chess event is the Capablanca Memorial Tournament, which has been held annually since 1962.Moreover, chess is a mirror of life, rich in metaphors for human experience.It is a pitched battle to the finish between opposing armies, yet completely non-violent, with no injuries ever reported from playing.Cuba has been a chess-crazy country since the rise of the legendary José Raúl Capablanca, Havana’s own world champion.Capablanca, born in 1888, was world champion from 1921 to 1927, and many chess fans consider him the greatest player of all time.The first generally recognized World Chess Champion, Wilhelm Steinitz, claimed his title in 1886.Since 1948, the World Championship has been regulated by FIDE, the game's international governing body.
