The newest streaming e-sport is chess! Remember Battlechess of the 1990's? This is a new sensation, and is a welcome sight for the competitive chess landcape.

Twitch is the newest source for online chess viewing. Is Chess a sport? Yes it is.

The Meriam Webster Dictionary defines a sport as:

"an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment."

E-sports are huge business, and are blossoming, especially during the COVID-19 Pandemic. As a former Chess Aficionado, I am glad to see Chess on Twitch, and those who play it become famous in their arena.

Will you or have you watched Chess on Twitch?
