Living on the edge

For me chess was living on the edge, slugging it out, throwing material to the wind, giv­ing mate. I recall bitter cold days in the park when sweat dripped down my sides as I battled some scary-looking dude across the board. I once said to my dad, 'No sport makes me sweat as much as chess.' - Josh Waitzkin
