It's not often you see a major newspaper feature a story on an American chess champion, so I took note of this one even though it's about a male player, and I don't generally follow news on them.
U.S. chess champion is now ranked No. 2 in the world. Opponents fear he’s still getting better.

Hint to Author: Please don't write about So as if he's a 12 year old boy with the giggles, and please do not attempt to depict chess as some sort of fierce war game. So is not a 12 year old boy with giggles and chess is not a fierce war game - it is so much more than that. It is akin to a multidimensional mathematical equation being worked out in the form of dance and music on 65 squares (no, that is not a typo). It also has nothing to do with "death," per se, but it certainly can lead to achieving enlightenment and a breakthrough, if only temporary, to the invisible realms where one can feel and "see" the immortal.
