"One of the main interests of his young manhood was chess..." (John Masefield, Some Memories of W.B. Yeats, Dublin, 1940)
In the early 1880s WBY discovered chess and soon became immersed in it. At first, finding no opponent, he played his right hand against his left. He finally persuaded his father to play who protested he knew nothing of the game but the moves, yet beat him every time. (W. Murphy, Prodigal Father, 1978, p.131)
