I recently picked up chess again after more than 20 years. My son has developed an interest and is learning quickly, partly guided by that irrepressible human instinct, to beat his dad. My teenage affair with chess, though passionate, was short-lived. It soon occurred to me that to become any good would take long years of study and sacrifice, and that life isn’t as long as we want it to be. Hence a firm resolution to forget about it, fast.

However, now that someone else needs my coaching, I have an excuse to resume occasional practice. While bridge in particular might be a better analogy to decision making under risk, there is still lots you can learn about investing from just casual, club-level chess.
