I can play chess. I'm not very good, though. I got second in a regional tournament while in my school's chess club in middle school, but I haven't played since then seeing as I don't really know anyone that plays.

I have only ever played chess for entertainment --and even then it has not been often. I am not a strategy-type person, but I could learn a few lessons if I wanted to.

Yes I can play chess, but even the basic concepts of planning and strategy elude me. I can never win against people who actually know what they are doing. I just react to what the other person is doing rather than come up with my own strategy which is a horrible way to play.

I know how to play Chess, by my skill level is rather bad. Like DeltaEdge, I only play based on what my opponent does and I don't really come up with too much of a strategy (Although I do have my own strategic opening that's very passive but defensive).

Yeah I am pretty good at chess, one time I had a chess tournament for my chess club and I haven't lost a single game but it was finished before people made it to the finals like only 4 people had made it far and I was one of them.

No, I cannot play chess. I have tried to learn how to play it a few times, but I am not very good at all. It's also been quite a while since I last played.

I was taught how to play chess when I was in first grade. I loved it when I learned and became addicted. I got really good at it and played everyone that knew how. Eventually, nobody in my family would play me anymore. I was out of practice until we got the Internet and I discovered online chess. I played a lot. But eventually, I stopped playing online. People were too mean. I still know how to play, but it has been about 6 years since I have played. I am probably not near as good as I used to be.

Oh I love to play chess. I won a tourney with it that was at my school. I have not played for a while but I memorized all of the movements and everything. I used to know how too win in 2 turns. But I doubt it anymore.

Well, I know the rules and a couple tricks for chess, but I can't play very professionally. I can barely beat the easiest level cpu when playing on the computer. x3
