The best thing about chess

From "Chess rules at school" in the Hampton (NH) Union:
....Spencer was not immune to the less-abstract pleasures of the game. His favorite part is "watching the opponent’s face when you beat him."

If anyone thought chess players were less competitive than athletes in more physical sports, they would quickly be told otherwise by the students competing. More than anything, "winning" was mentioned as the best part of the game.
