If you are healthy, why worry?

Consult your doctor.


Does chess make you angry? If yes you should avoid it.

Sure, especially if you’re losing.


I used to play chess with a friend, It got very competitive. I can remember my heart beating like I was going into battle. When I finally won a game, I am sure that my BP was through the roof.

No. You should practice calming techniques that you can use in a variety of situations…including a game of chess.
