Chess is Too Hard as Profession: GM Akopian

Armenian Chess Grandmaster Vladimir Akopian says chess is way too hard to be taken up as a profession. He says, "I don't want my boys to be professional chess players, because it's too hard." He was speaking after a win in the Chinese Chess League Division A. When he was 14 in 1986, Akopian was crowned the World Under-16 champion. Three years ago, he was named "Honoured Master of Sport of the Republic of Armenia".
