Short Story I wrote more than 10 years back –
To win, you need to play well. To play well, you need to know the rules, get best coaching and play with full enthusiasm and involvement.
You don’t need to know answers to questions like ‘how this game was created?’, ‘why it came into existence?’, ‘are the rules fare’, or ‘is playing the game good for me?’ and so on.
In fact trying to know or thinking about these can distract you and adversely affect your ability to enjoy and play the game well.
