  tamar: "...what people appreciate in chess is beauty and distinctiveness. For instance, in certain positions a knight could be stronger than a queen. You look at the board and don’t understand why, and then you see the point and say: “Wow! That’s beautiful!” This is the reason why we love chess." Interview with Motylev
