I noticed that, the Chess game part.. When watching Martial Art Anime or Naruto Shippden series.. You start thinking what their next move will be. Lot of Action Anime are like this.

There's actually a term/practice form in traditional martial arts that is basically this. I can't remember the name because I don't due it enough, but what it is a physical chess match. You make a "move", the opponent reacts and moves and on and on.

For really good people, it looks like an actual fight, just slowed down, because there is no real "stop" between their actions.


As for recommendations

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, mostly Battle Tendency, but most of the parts are good
Rokka: Braves of the six flowers, I give a 7/6
Haikyuu and most sports anime start to feel like chess matches (dat last point against Aoba Josai though)
The World God Only Knows if you want something funny

Perhaps this is an obvious answer but No Game No Life felt like quite the chess match to me; constantly finding and overcoming new obstacles to get 1 step closer to your goal all in a very strategic approach.
