I am not a chess player myself, but the present match for the world championships between Indian Anand and the Norwegian Carlsen is interesting even to me. So I put the broadcast on TV. And, then, to my surprise, my cat Shumshu really got interested! Just see the image.
Of course he does not know chess. But he would always look for the little cursor moving around every now and then. And, if he understands the game of chess, he is wiser than his owner. Well, well.
