    When I entered elementary , my dad started to teach me playing chess, like everyone in his family knows how to play chess it's like a tradition everyone in the family has to learn to play and once in a year we do a reunion Grandma's bday (father side) and we do a chess tournament for fun

    So, perhaps not a song about chess, but...John Cage wrote a work called Chess Pieces (the score is fairly simple, though quite expensive). Nice to see another professional musician/chess player.

    Can’t you guys do castling when ever there is a gap there? I’ve always played it that way (including my chess coach and this one international chess player) How do I know the international chess player- it’s a summer school/camp (at a school, but not admission fee) and he was there. A teacher beat him once, but other than that no one did. It was luck from the teacher when the kid messed up a move.
