"chess is all about seeing things ..."
GiLoCatur remembers that an American junior chess player once said that "chess is all about seeing things that no one else sees". While looking back at the games of GiLoCatur's daughter, Anis Fariha, GiLoCatur was amazed how she could not see the checkmate move. She moved 43. .. Qg2+ and the game finally was over after 15 more steps. During then, Anis had National ratings of 905 while her opponent had 1065.
That is the beauty of CHESS! Isn't CHESS amazing?
