Best I ever finished was second place at a small, local tournament. Still play it every now and then, but I never had the heart to devote too much time to it. Beautiful game.

Did not like playing it on my computer, mostly because I've never really found a good website/program. That said, I haven't looked in a few years. Any nice sites?

Chess.com is a cool website to play chess. You can play against a computer or human there. There are many time formats to choose from. Masters also play there and it has a helpful forum/article lessons.

I have windows 7. There's a great chess game there, Chess Titians. You can play level 1 thru 10. I've beaten it at 7.

If you have 7 go to search programs and files, type in chess titians, enter. I believe you can also find it online.

I like to move my Queen to H5 on the 2nd move in dramatic fashion, a threatening display of might, yanking it up as high as my shoulder can take it and then emphatically slamming the piece down onto the board like one of those homeless bastards in central park. Then when my opponent inevitably takes my Queen in the next couple of moves, I just yawn and leave the table like I was half-heartedly joking around, which I was, but also because I was too much of an idiot to be interested in chess. I've only played a handful of times and they all started something like "Oh, this is the King, not the Queen? Can we start over?" Not too long afterwards, we'd always get bored, leave the pieces a mess, and move on to something else like using large water balloons to dislodge the shingles on this one neighbor kid's house...he was a straight up ho cake.

Yeah. Trying for that mate in 4 is hope chess. A person trying that four move is a beginner(white gains nothing here).

Below are the basic opening principles that beginners/novice should follow.

1. Develop your pieces. 2. Control the center. 3. King Safety.

I find it challenging to sometimes start on defense. I use Dragon Sicilian.

Concentrate on developing. I also caution on being first to capture. I play defense.

Attack me I defend. Attackers are vulnerable if they don't see I know what they're planing.

I try to play five move chess.

Patience is a virtue when playing chess.

Nice. The most challenging against the dragon is the yugoslav attack.

Arguably, the charismatic Mikhail Tal is the greatest chess attacker of all time.

Sample of his games:

Jose Capablanca(chicks magnet) is one the greatest endgame/positional player of all time.

Sample of his games:


The Birth of a Deadly Marshall Attack: Capablanca vs Marshall 1918. Capa defended well against an attack.

A New Generation Fights for the World Chess Championship


Quote:
When Magnus Carlsen, the reigning World Champion from Norway, and Sergey Karjakin, his Russian challenger, face off in the title match this November in New York City, it will be the dawn of a new era in chess.

It will be the first time that none of the players of the older generation, represented by former champions like Viswanathan Anand of India, Vladimir Kramnik of Russia, and Veselin Topalov of Bulgaria, will be competing for the title.

Carlsen, 25 (who will be 26 at the end of the match) and Karjakin

Magnus Carlsen wins third world chess title

Quote:

Magnus Carlsen of Norway has won the World Chess Championship for the third consecutive time after defeating challenger Sergey Karjakin of Russia.
Carlsen sealed victory following three weeks of play and a series of tiebreakers in New York.

Karjakin tied against Carlsen in 12 regular rounds but was beaten in the final phase of four quickfire games.

Organisers said the event was followed by about six million chess fans around the world.

Hundreds of spectators paid between $100 and $500 to watch the games
at a former fish market in Manhattan, separated from the two grandmasters by soundproof glass.

The king is back: Chess legend Garry Kasparov comes out of retirement


Quote:
His painful and very public defeat against IBM's Deep Blue computer heralded the end of human dominance over artificial intelligence.

Yet 20 years on Garry Kasparov is still considered the greatest chess player in history, a genius so special he became world champion at 22 and was then almost invincible for two decades.

Now, 12 years after he turned his back on the professional game, the king is back.
