    Can you elaborate on that? Isn't this THE authority on how to play chess?

    Based on his posts so far, I'd say he would benefit greatest from learning the basic rules. These are, after all, universal.

    I play the ball, not the player / the position, not the opponent.

    Snowy season?

    The reference 'Based on his posts so far....' is what inspired me to the comment. The question he posted could have been put by anyone.

    'My' misunderstanding?

    Apart from that, I see what you mean. Despite that, the 'absolute 'rules (with a fair amount of explanation included) seems a good starting point to me.
