“You have to think about the others, care for them. If not, everything collapses in chaos. Every chess piece is in one or another way connected to the other pieces on the field. You have to see the entire picture in order to play a good match.”
(Eneida Pérez, 2011. Eight times representant of the Dominican Republic in the international chess tournament of the nations.)
