Yugioh or beyblade style anime but the game is a normal every day real game.

A bunch of high school students getting into poker but it's still stressful because these small amounts they bet with is all their allowance. The world chess federation has sent roaming judges through out the city to find the next big champion, and people throw down at random to settle old scores.

Done right and it might just work, if nothing else then as a satire.


@MrControl If you get a chance you should check out Ping Pong The Animation (if you haven't already), it hits a number of the usual sports anime beats but it ends up being something really compelling and special. The only chess anime (Shogi but close enough?) I can think of is way too moody and not that kind of silly shounen action.
