For years, tennis pros and tennis legends such as Jim Courier and Stefan Edberg have enjoyed playing in senior tours and masters tournaments after the prime of their famous grand slam careers were over. This is because these "recreational" tournaments provide an outlet for competitive greats to practice their skills and reflect on the mastery of their respective experiences.

Chess is an essential game of competition and sportsmanship and chess legends such as Bobby Fischer (USA) and Garry Kasparov (Russia) have enjoyed participating in post-career tournaments and exhibitions designed at cherishing the educational and experiential qualities of the eclectic chess experience.

Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Searching for Bobby Fischer" (1993) illuminate the visceral quality of chess, both professional and recreational.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
