How to say a sentence down in without using "know how to"?
I know how to play chess but I can't play it with you because I have to go
I want to combine two things:
1) Know how to
2) Have such a possibility
But I doubt next thing will work out:
I can play chess but I am not able to play it
I am able to play chess but I can't play it
The problem is, as I see, "be able to" and "can" can be understood either way. This case their combining isn't good. Otherwise it may sound like
I know how to play chess but I don't know how to play chess
I have a posibility to play chess but I don't have a possibility to play chess
Of course, I can try to say
I know how to play chess but I can't\ am not able to play it
But it looks like some hack or something. Is there a way to combine these meanigns in one sentence without any cheat-like phrases like above?
