This was thrown around last night at the pub due to a story one of my mates saw a couple of weeks back, apparently people are pushing for chess to be included at the next olympics, the arguments for it go along the lines of the psychological challenges etc. the argument against is that you just sit on your butt and do not much.
Is chess a sport? Is chess a game? I believe it to be a game played for leisure, something similar to checkers or poker even.
