Chess used to be a game that you would prepare for extensively so you could beat your friend or colleague. You would interact with other people while playing chess but that has all changed because of the internet. Now you can play chess online which eliminates the need for a rival because playing online is more convenient and cheaper. Nowadays, chess games are free online so you don’t have to pay money and you can play anytime you want. If you wanted to play chess with a friend, you would need the chessboard, pieces, and a time when both people can meet up. Computer chess has advanced so rapidly that now computers are able to beat grandmasters. It might even advance to the point where we have tournaments between computers instead of humans. Bibliography

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
