Introduction

 

1962 saw the formation of the British Postal Chess Federation (BPCF) to oversee the running of the British CC Championships and provide a united body to deal with international affairs. The newly formed federation duly affiliated to the ICCF and England has been a member ever since. Scotland and Wales had formed their own CC federations in the late 1970′s, gaining partial membership of ICCF in 1981 and full ICCF memberships in 1991, whereas BPCF has represented England internationally with ICCF. The name was changed to the BFCC (British Federation for Correspondence Chess) in 1999 to reflect the fact that correspondence chess was no longer postal only, and then again to EFCC (English Federation for Correspondence Chess) on 1st January 2015.

 

Over the period, English correspondence chess has been adorned by two truly outstanding players. CC and FIDE GM Dr. Jonathan Penrose won the OTB British Championship many consecutive times before concentrating his chess attentions on correspondence chess. He took 3rd place in the 13th  World CC Final and was ranked 2nd in the world at his peak. CC-GM Keith Richardson finished 3rd in the 7th World Championship Final and he repeated this performance in the 10th Final.

 

In modern times, England has two outstanding players. In the Heemsoth Memorial (2008-10), a Category XVI event and which was one of the strongest CC tournaments of all time, CC-GM Richard Hall finished on the same points as the winner, although 3rd on tie-break. CC-GM Nigel Robson finished in fifth place in World Championship 29 Final.

 

Principal Achievements

 

Great Britain won the Gold Medal in Olympiad IX and thereafter the same team followed up to gain the Silver Medal in Olympiad X representing England where we finished a close second behind the Soviet Union. Since those heady heights, the England team have not reached the medal podium.

 

International Tournaments Organised

 

The EFCC is proud of the numerous tournaments they have organised allowing Title opportunities not just for English players, but also for players from all over the world.

 

The tradition started in 1974 with the very strong Reg Potter Memorial; the BFCC-25 followed in 1987 and then the Reg Gillman memorial tournaments starting in 1999. In the same year, England also organised World Cup XI which only finished in 2010! Other tournaments organised include 1st North Sea Team Tournament and the 5th North Atlantic Team tournament. More recently England has organised Veterans’ World Cups VIII, IX, X, XI, and XII.

 

Many Memorial tournaments for various English players and organisers have also taken place including the prestigious Category XV Simon Webb Memorial. Tournaments have been held to mark the celebration of BFCC’s Golden Jubilee in 2012, and it is envisaged that various tournaments will be held in 2022 to celebrate the EFCC’s Diamond Jubilee.

"Mrs Kronborg's children were all trained to dress themselves at the earliest possible age, to make their own beds, - the boys as well as the girls, - to take care of their clothes, to eat what was given them, and to keep out of the way. Mrs Kronborg would have made a good chess-player; she had a head for moves and positions."

Willa Cather The Song of the Lark (p19)

 

“Excellence in chess is a mark of a scheming mind”
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

 

“Old man: Do you know chess?

Young man: I learned it a week ago.

OM: Did your mind go on playing the game all night that first night?

YM: Don't mention it!

OM: It was eagerly, unsatisfiably interested; it rioted in the combinations; you implored it to drop the game and let you get some sleep?

YM: Yes. It wouldn't listen; it played right along. It wore me out and I got up haggard and wretched in the morning.”

Mark Twain What is Man?

Chess and Psychology

by Stephen Meredith Williams DPhil
Chippenham

            Though the writers quoted for epigraph are far from enthusiastic about chess, I myself am a fan and a participant, though far from adept at the game – a County Master who once made a fairly feeble attempt to gain the Regional Master title. And that has been in spite of learning to play at the age of eight, while today I have already seen my seventieth birthday. Except for a break from the serious (rated) game from the age of eighteen into my mid-thirties, I have been playing and achieving so little all that time. At CC (correspondence chess) I am stronger, having fallen from a lifetime best rating in the mid 2300’s to my present 2280. (I do use a computer, and regard it as part of the CC game.)

            By profession I was a psychologist, teaching in British universities for fifteen years and then running an independent practice in psychology for a slightly longer period. Hence an article on “chess and psychology”. The (mainly academic) literature on this has been voluminous, and I have copped out of the book-length treatment that would be necessary to give it flow and structure – by pruning a great deal that does not bear on my main themes, and by compiling and annotating a bibliography that is the meat of this article. However, I will introduce the bibliography by outlining those principal themes.

            There is a recent book about The Psychology of Chess by Professor Fernand Gobet, who has himself contributed a very considerable number of articles to the field. My first decision has been to leave the vast majority of those articles out of this one, so as to be distinctive and also because in the book he has expounded his own work far better than I ever could. There is another even more recent book by Angel Blanch on Chess and Individual Differences, but currently that is inordinately expensive and, so, inaccessible.

            I am in no doubt that the aspect of psychology that most interests most people is mental (or psychological?) health. I am also aware that many people wonder what the difference is between a psychologist and a psychiatrist. The proper answer is that a psychologist is a student of the mind, though one who may, when specializing in clinical psychology, be part of the multidisciplinary team charged with aiding the person in distress. A psychiatrist is a healer of the mind, medically qualified with the authority to prescribe physical treatments: mainly psychotropic drugs, but also ECT (electro-convulsive therapy) and others besides, and who also carries more of the legal responsibility for the welfare of the individual and the community. The spoof answer to the question what is the difference is that a psychologist is more intelligent. And a psychiatrist? Earns more money.

Chess and psychological health

 

            In the context of eccentricity, it is safest to mention great names of the past: Franҫois-André Philidor was advised at one time to abandon his "dangerous experiments" in blindfold chess, for the sake of preserving his reason. Johan Zukertort and Harry Pillsbury both died tragically young, a circumstance attributed by the media of the time to their absorption in chess. Paul Morphy and Wilhelm Steinitz both carried eccentricity to considerable extents. It is likely that their proximity to grinding poverty collaborated with the psychological strain of the game to bring about the adverse consequences. A lot more could be said about more contemporary names but there remains a stigma.

            It is likely that it is winning at the highest level that tends to carry a price. Far from driving people mad, chess has a legitimate place in psychotherapy. David Bronstein once wrote of its "narcotic element”, and Pakenham-Walsh [1] has described his own use of chess for therapy. The great Soviet physicist Peter Kapitsa said, "Chess brings the mind into a state of balance". Any important game tends to have physical effects [2], which show the feelings it arouses, and the utility of the game in coming to terms with feelings. And in spite of the silence in which it is conducted, it does facilitate relationships. Not only with fellow players: Fred Waitzkin’s book describes vividly how the relationship of Josh Waitzkin with his trainer, Bruce Pandolfini, had sharp ups and downs, as much as in a marriage.

            Psychoanalysts see a deeper meaning in chess. Reuben Fine was a psychoanalyst as well as an outstanding chess player and writer (his Basic Chess Endings was a bible for my generation), who has explained the main way in which chess has been fitted into psychoanalytic theory. Chess is more often than not taught to a boy by his father (or by a father figure). By taking his father on at chess, a son finds a harmless way to attack him. To beat him is to beat him on his own ground, and so hurt him the more keenly. After all, a father is an adult, how can he possibly lose to a boy? A war game, as the phrase suggests, is a way of working through aggressive feelings. Essentially, it helps to resolve the Oedipus complex [3] It was particularly Sigmund Freud’s emphasis upon the sexual basis of much human motivation, including his characterisation of the son’s love for his mother as sexual in nature, that aroused much derision of his whole system of ideas when it was first put forward. Sexuality has been related to chess by literature critic George Steiner, too, in a splendid purple passage:

 "The poets lie about orgasm. It is a small, chancy business, its particularities immediately effaced even from the most roseate memories, compared to the crescendo of triumph in chess, to the tide of light and release that races over mind and knotted body as the opponent's king, inert in the fatal web one has spun, falls upon the board." [4]

Checkmate is better than orgasm? No wonder that it should be useful in therapy!

Women and children first

 

            I have seen for myself how chess (properly supervised) has a wonderful tranquillising effect on children and Ralph L Hall in 1983 even advocated it as a school subject. Some support has been found for this [5], with evidence that chess playing can improve mathematics scores, but Sala and Gobet (2017) are sceptical.

        Others argue for the value of chess in developing gifted children, specifically.[6]
Chess is an activity like music and mathematics in which huge talent can manifest itself very young.  It is prodigies who give chess its reputation as an age-leveller, and at many congresses you can see adults grimacing with the effort to defeat a child who looks as if he or she could be their son or (grand)daughter.

            Arpad Elo, the man who developed an international grading system for chess strength (see his 1978 book), looked at the life-span trend of chess skill. He found that Grandmasters improved from their teens into their thirties, showing a modest decline thereafter. I am struck by the similarity to the life-span development of intelligence quotients (IQs). It is worth noting that the peak age of achievement in postal chess seemed to be at least a decade later, in the mid-forties [7] I find I am worse at calculating variations than when younger but, can compensate for this by my greater knowledge of chess. I take this up further in the section on chess skill.

            The parallel with IQ is in fact a fairly complex technical issue: the first age-curves for IQ were based on “cross-sectional” work comparing groups of different ages at the same time. When individuals are followed through “longitudinally” different patterns emerge, mainly that there is a plateau in middle age before decline sets in at a much later age. Also, the average decline may be due to sharp falls in a few people who have strokes, for example, rather than being in any way universal. Chess can be a fascinating way of illuminating general psychological issues, particularly those to do with skill and expertise (see later).

            I myself once collected some data on the teenage development of chess skill. For the twenty-one best 17-year-olds in the 1994-5 British Grading List, I used other rating lists to tabulate their ratings at each age from twelve to seventeen years. On average, these players improved most in their thirteenth and, especially, fourteenth years, the improvement thereafter tapering off, suggesting an association with puberty. But there were great differences between individuals in the rate of improvement, one already at County Master level at the age of twelve, but merely maintaining his form at that level until seventeen, another improving from amateur level to County Master standard over the period.

            When should you start your child on chess? The clear beginning-point is learning the rules. No grandmaster seems to have begun in this sense later than the teens - more recently, no later than the early teens. [8] The earlier one starts, the earlier the first title is attained [9] .

 



            Far more men than women play chess. Women are surprisingly under-represented in the chess world, comprising less that 5% of registered tournament players worldwide and only 1% of the world's grand masters. [10]

            Whether the explanation for the gender imbalance should be sought in inherent psychological tendencies or in social conditioning is, in Richard Eales' view [11], largely a matter of taste. I personally incline far more to social factors as the explanation. Thus Lisa Lane, a one-time US Women’s Chess Champion, once said that Robert Fischer was the greatest player alive. "That statement is accurate," commented Fischer when this was put to him, "but Lisa really wouldn't be in a position to know. They're all weak, all women." How graceless! Is it surprising that women stay away from the game?

            Some of Bobby Fischer's habits and mannerisms have been described [12] as "strikingly alike to those seen in autistic individuals". On the other hand, these same authors regard the competitive nature of chess as incompatible with the personality of the autistic. Personally, I have grave misgivings about the popularity of the diagnosis of autism. It is supposed to be a manifestation of the “extreme male brain”. Why is there no diagnosis of an extreme female brain (characterized, perhaps, by an insistence on personalising all discussion)? “Autistic” seems to me a possible instance of the scientific name-calling and nose-thumbing that distinguishes so much bad psychology: little more than a jibe on the same page as “nerd” or “anorak”.

            The question of sexual orientation arises in a situation where, as Fine put it: "two men are voluntarily together for hours at a time with no women present". He added that there is almost no evidence of overt homosexuality among chess players, “since the rituals and symbols of the game gratify such desires on the level of fantasy.“ Of course this is going back some years.

Chess skill

 

            Much of the research surveyed in my bibliography can be taken as pertaining to questions about chess skill. Is it no more than a matter of past chess activity, whether playing or studying? [13] The way to improve at chess is said to be to play a lot [14], practice in the form of study is less beneficial. Can some defeats be put down to a bad night’s sleep? [15] Can stimulants like caffeine enhance performance? One study [16] found that they do (methylphenidate, modafinil and caffeine were used) so long as the ingestion of these doesn’t lead to a loss on time! There have also been studies, [17] of whether the brains of experts and chess novices differ. The relationship between chess skill and IQ has suggested some positive association both in chess masters [18] and in children [19]

            Seminal work of Adriaan De Groot soon after the end of the second world war established one reliable concomitant of chess expertise: better players can remember chess positions better. [20] This is still an active field of research [21]. Other early workers on chess skill were Herbert Simon and William Chase [22]. Their explanation for the finding about memory was that people “chunk” information in order to overcome the limitations of their memory. Psychologists still hold there is something special about the range between 5 and 9 items, e.g. when trying to remember a telephone number. But if the number can be “encoded” like “the two digits at the start of the number are 07”, that is, in terms of chunks, more digits can be reported (in a laboratory study,say). The idea generalizes to more long-term memory. In chess the configuration of the castled king, rook and the pawns in front of them might form a chunk for a lot of us, and chess experts seem to hold in store many more chunks of this sort than novices do.

            The relative roles of this sort of knowledge and search (through variations) is also a major topic of study. [23] Of course it is not only stored chunks that matter: it was quite late in my playing career that I learned that queen and knight, for example, or rook and knight are pairs of pieces that can co-operate well. A lot of psychology on mental imagery and pattern recognition is also relevant. Perhaps this is a good place to point out that the vast majority of books on chess, and there are very many, are bought because their reader wants to improve their own results. Whether the sort of work I have been describing can do this is debatable.

            More than one author [24] has pointed out the advantages of chess as a model or laboratory for expertise and skill in general. Often, this has been the motivation for the research rather than any interest in chess specifically. Though often the researchers have been strong players themselves. Fernand Gobet, for example, is an IM and Adriaan De Groot played for the Netherlands.

            Of course modern work, some of it identified in my footnotes, has gone beyond De Groot and Simon/Chase. For example, Sheridan and Reingold (2014, 2017) have  used eye-movement monitoring equipment to investigate the thought processes that distinguish expert from chess novice. Databases of players and games have improved out of all recognition and can spare the researcher the tiresome data collection phase of a study. Please read on to find out more about this research, both classical and modern.

All chess players differed from the comparison group in terms of unconventional thinking and orderliness. Also, highly competitive players differed from non-players in being significantly more suspicious. The 3 groups did not differ significantly on neuroticism, aggressive tendency, and hostility.

Neil Charness is well known, not only for his work on expertise but for a particular emphasis on how it interacts with ageing. I have sometimes heard that chess performance deteriorates with age, and since I do feel that knowledge about the game increases with practice and experience, it is likely that a decreasing power to search for the best moves through many variations is responsible.

They studies a sample of 90 adult tournament chess players of varying playing strengths (1311-2387 ELO), testing intelligence and personality variables; as well as recording experience in chess play and practice . They conclude that the latter are more important than the former in predicting expertise, but nonetheless intelligence, and personality do have a bearing on it. Interestingly, all the variables they analysed statistically accounted for little more than half the variability in expertise.

The game of chess is recommended as a school activity. In addition to requiring that individuals become actively involved in a mentally demanding competition, its effects are stimulating, wholesome and healthy. Several benefits accrue from the teaching and promoting of chess in schools. Chess limits the element of luck (teaching the importance of planning), requires that reason be coordinated with instinct (it is an effective decision-making activity), it is an endless source of satisfaction (the better one plays, the more rewarding it becomes), and it is a highly organised recreational activity with clubs (leagues, team play) and elaborate systems of local, national, and international governance. In addition, chess is an international language such that players will find a friendly reception in any of the thousands of chess clubs throughout the world.

Extends the analysis of anticipatory processes in chess to more complex move trees in the expectation that stronger players should show a cumulative advantage. Also, the examination of successive depths of search should provide data on the human use of such computer processes as "minimaxing".

Women played over the Internet and were told the gender of their opponent. They showed a drastic performance drop when they were aware that they were playing against a male opponent. When they (falsely) believed they were playing against a woman, they performed as well as their male opponents. Additional findings suggest that women show lower chessspecific selfesteem and a weaker promotion focus, which are predictive of poorer chess performance. But Stafford (2018) contradicts these findings.

Not every chess player is gifted--even at chess, and not all gifted children want to play chess. However, this author suggests chess is an excellent game for children of all ages of 5 to 95 and it can be particularly interesting and helpful for able children.

Mazur A, Booth A & Dabbs JM (1992). Testosterone and chess competition. Social Psychology Quarterly 55, 70-7.

 

Testosterone (T) has been central to theories about allocation of status ranks in face-to-face competition, previously tested in physically taxing athletic contests. The non-physical struggle of chess playing here approximates normal social competition in testing the T mechanism. Winners show higher T levels than losers. Sometimes competitors' T levels rise before games, as if in preparation.

They monitored over a period of 120 consecutive days the sleep of two groups, each of seven players. One of the groups was doing well in their FIDE scores, the other was doing badly.  The successful players were getting greater amounts of deep sleep, and lesser amounts of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and were also breathing more slowly.

Higher rated players made lower errors. All were more accurate about players close in rating to themselves.

Stereotype threat has been offered as a potential explanation of differential performance between men and women in some cognitive domains. But data from over 5.5 million games of international tournament chess found no evidence of a stereotype-threat effect. In fact, female players outperform expectations when playing men.

The importance of such knowledge in determining skill at the lower levels was determined using individuals who had never played chess before and individuals who knew the basic rules but were not rated for competition. The subjects' intake of perceptual cues was studied by measuring the time required to search for checks using the standard rules in game and in random positions. Results suggest that knowledge of the legal rules may play a greater role than memory for specific positions in improving chess skill at the lower levels.

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 { So- what to play against the World Champion? I have always been a Ruy Lopez player but on studying my opponent's games saw that he normally plays the Berlin Defence which I hate playing against. I therefore opted for the giuoco pianissimo with latent attacking possibilities.......... } 3...Bc5 4.O-O Nf6 5.d3 d6 6.c3 a6 7.a4 O-O 8.h3 h6 9.Re1 a5 { The first major surprise. I couldn't fathom out at first the logic of black moving his a pawn twice in four moves. Our game had started in September 2017 and I subsequently discovered that 9....a5 had already been played twice earlier that year by my opponent's compatriots Grischuk and Svidler in high level OTB games. The considered view appears to be that the loss of tempo is of no great significance. Nonetheless I now felt that I had the initiative. } 10.Nbd2 Be6 11.Bb5 { Exchanging bishops on e6 didn't appeal to me and I'm going to take on c6 if allowed.... } 11...Ne7 { ..but of course black moves the c6 knight away. 11....Na7 was an alternative. } 12.d4 exd4 13.Nxd4 Bd7 14.Nf1 Bxb5 15.axb5 Qd7 16.Ng3 { Of course 16.c4 was the "sensible" move but I decided to sacrifice the b pawn to gain time for a king side attack. } 16...Bxd4 17.cxd4 Qxb5 18.Ra3 { In an OTB game I would really fancy my chances with my pieces pointing in the direction of black's king but this is CC with an opponent of the highest level with no time pressure worries. He starts by offering to return the sacrificed pawn. } 18...d5 19.e5 Ne4 20.Nh5 { If 20.Nxe4 dxe4 21.Rc3 Qd7 22. Rxe4 Ra6! 23. Rg4 Rg6 black holds comfortably } 20...Qb4 21.Rb3 Qc4 22.f3 { If I play 22 Rxb7 I win back the pawn but lose the initiative eg.22....Nf5 23. Qg4 g6 24.f3 Qd4+ 25.

However black correctly judges that he can create a blockade. } 31.e6 Rae8 32.Re3 Qb4 33.h4 Re7 34.Rce2 Qc4 35.h5 { A last hurrah but the problem is that I cannot get my rooks into the action. } 35...c5 $1 36.Rd2 Rfe8 37.h6 Qb4 { 37....gxh6 38.
