Chess, in addition to its virtues as an entertainment game, which has stood the
test of time, fully deserves the hierarchy of a powerful tool for the intellectual
growth of youth.

the characteristics of a pure Strategy organism, since apart from the trivial
comparison with a bloodless battle between rival armies, it contains formal
aspects that involve most of the manifestations of human activity.
This arises because each player, having precise objectives and clearly established rules, has to overcome a whole series of problems and difficulties that are created from the chosen path and that can also be modified, according to their way of traveling it
Then, by bringing together the virtues of a pleasant game, with the structure and the characteristic method for the evolution of reasoning and the development of responsibility, it turns out to be an extremely suitable element for the training and building of intelligence
