DENVER, CO, January 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Most people think of chess as a standard strategy game, but for Roman Bylo, it has great importance in his life. Since adolescence, Roman Bylo has competed in various chess competitions and championships. He is proud to announce that he received second place in his most recent competition.
Roman Bylo loves playing chess for a variety of reasons. He has always been good with planning and organization, which chess relies on. He explains, "I like games that involve a lot of thought. I like to take time to analyze the situation before making moves, so faster paced games usually don't appeal to me." Anyone who has seen Roman Bylo
play chess can corroborate this; he takes the time to plan elaborate strategies before moving pieces. For Roman Bylo, this extra effort results in highly successful game play.
When he was just 17, Roman Bylo entered his first chess competition. He recognizes that he was young at the time, but insists that, "I'm glad that I participated. I did not do well, being so young, but I still enjoyed the experience." It was during this competition that Roman Bylo learned an important game strategy of leaving his pawns in the center of the board. One of Roman Bylo's opponents used this strategy during a game, which enabled him to organize more attacks than if his pawns were dispersed across the board. Since this first competition, Roman Bylo has frequently used this technique to his advantage in games.
Another favorite strategy of Roman Bylo
is to keep his rooks together in middle rows. He knows from experience that placing both rooks in the seventh or eighth rows can be troublesome for his opponent, particularly if his rooks occupy the same row. Roman Bylo has won several games using this technique and recommends it to beginner players as it is easy to maintain.
Playing chess is more than just a game for Roman Bylo. It allows him to keep his mind active, while working on his organizational and strategic skills. For these reasons, he loves to enter competitions. Despite his success in competitions and championships, Roman Bylo
believes that it is important to remain humble about his success. He explains, "Winning is great, but the game is about more than doing well. I think the process of playing is equally as important as winning games." During his most recent competition, Roman Bylo recognized that he made some mistakes, but does not regret his overall performance.
For Roman Bylo, playing chess is important to his personal development. He explains, "I used to play with my grandfather when I was younger. He was a former champion and taught me how to play." Roman Bylo and his grandfather bonded over their mutual love for chess, and some of Roman Bylo
's fondest childhood memories involve playing chess with his grandfather. He says, "I think my grandfather would be proud to see my progress today. Every time I enter a new competition or championship, I think of him."About:
