Novice Nook discussion forum Iíve been a long-time fan of Dan Heismanís Novice Nook column at ChessCafe.com. Iím convinced that heís got a great deal of valuable information and advice to offer for beginning and intermediate players. Iíve read many, but not all of the Novice Nook columns and Iíve recommended them to many of the players Iíve coached in the Chess Coaching Club. Iíve often thought that I would benefit from systematically reading… More: chess online

Greatest player of OUR time. Who do you think it is and why? I'd have to say Kasparov because not only was he a prodigy.. he was the world champion for a good amount of time and his play seemed to make his rivals seem somewhat paltry by comparison. What is "OUR" time? I daresay there are some GK members who can recall the days of Alekhine and Capablanca. Some of our members were at Paul Morphy's welcome home party. :o) :-)) LOL Cairo Greatest… More: backgammon online

Praatschaak 8 De thread voor wie het in de nederlandse taal over schaken wil hebben en zodoende iets wil bijleren. Met o.a. twee inspraakpartijen tussen Lex Herman en Lucas Vervoort, resp. voor Holland en BelgiŽ op board #501441 en board #501488. Waarschijnlijk... heb ik (of hebben we) wat teveel partijen lopen om aan goede discussies toe te komen. Op een paar dingen had ik reeds wat dieper willen ingaan ipv hier flauwe grapjes te verkopen.

Kramnik-Topalov Match (I think it's a sad commentary that this news has been out for a day and a half and nobody's thought to mention it here.) It seems that the two "World Chess Champions" have agreed to play a unification match in Elista this fall: -> chessbase.com . I would have thought that this was FIDE's late attempt at an April Fool's joke were it not for a corresponding reference on Vladimir Kramnik's website ( -> www.kramnik.com… More: chess history

Interesting. Playing OTB. Opening comes as 1. e4 d5 2. exd5 Qxd5 at this point white accidentally touches his king, forcing Ke2 giving black a mate on e4. Quite shattering if you ask me! ... That is pretty stupid. Accidental brush with the back of the hand happens often, is always ignored and can't be considered "touching". If White disturbs the pieces he can just say "J'adoube" and rectify that with no penalty. If White grabbed the King (for… More: correspondence chess

UNSOUND OPENINGS ?! I noticed a debate going on in the Traps thread about certain openings and whether they were unsound or playable. So starting this thread to discuss the soundness of various openings or whether unsound. And also, why do the strong players such as IM's/GM's etc. stop playing particular openings? A couple comments: First I'd like to offer the general comment; I think that when GM's et al begin to refrain from practicing the play chess online…

Good Solid line for white against the French ... not looking for anything fancy or tricky. When black plays the French against me I seem to get crushed quite often. Looking for a nice line solid line that can help me steer the game into clear, normally developing lines. Any ideas?

Things that annoy me. Is people telling me to play faster or hurry up and time out. i believe im entitled to use the full amount of time that im given on a game am i not? Maybe if YOU dont like the pace i play at you should resign! Indeed You're entitled to use your full quota of time. Your opponent, in starting or joining a game with certain time controls, agreed to be bound by them. Also, the behaviour you describe is against the rules: play chess online…

Breakdown Analysis of Players' Style & Execution thru Post-Mortum aor analysis of their past games of record. ************************************************** Surely you have studied the games of some GM's and great players looking to add to your understanding of the game, and add something to your own play.

Resignation OK, so I am playing tursas (board #525926), when he misses a move and I take his queen. After the capture, he has taken my white bishop, a pawn, and a knight, and now I have taken his white bishop and queen. We are in the 15th move, and it has been back and forth, but s/he resigns. The main reason I am playing him/her is because of his/her rating of 1500+, and I am hoping to get a higher quality win. I am somewhat assuming that the play chess online…

Computer beating tactics Just wanted to share some of the tactics I use to beat computers... anybody got any others to add?... or others tips to share? - Break out of opening book ASAP. - Be reluctant to exchange down with no advantage, more peices means more computation. - Play closed positions, with solid defenses... its easy to see an attack coming, and you can keep defending until the computer goes suicidal and sacs a knight for a couple of play chess online…

tactical help I have a sound understanding of the game of chess. I personally think that I could coach someone to a certain extent to understand how to win. The problem is that I think my tactical vision is lousy. I usualy don't have trouble puzzling out a complex combination if it involves whatever plan I am following, but I always tend to make other tactical blunders that destroy my chances. Maybe my problem is that I haven't developed the play chess online…

Another game Last week I posted a game I played against a 1900+ player. It was my first win against a 1900+ player in a slow game. I played in our tuesday night fights tournament again this week. I met Lester again on board 1 in the second round. I played the opening horribly wrong. Out of the opening I was down a pawn with no counterplay in sight. Then on move 15 he got overaggressive on the queenside and I was able launch a nice counter attack play chess online…
