Praatschaak 1 'k Dacht dat het mischien prettig was voor nederlandstaligen om schaakervaringen uit te wisselen in eigen taal. Deze thread wil daar de kans toe bieden. goed idee Lucas Ik zit nu op mijn werk maar ik zal dit weekend zeker een bijdrage leveren en ja het is beter om hiermee niet de team thread te belasten. 'k Ben benieuwd of er wat interesse gaat zijn in deze thread, beste Lex. Er moeten toch wel wat nederlandstalige mensen met vragen… More: chess online

GK Forum v Fritz: Round 1 I had this idea the other day and wondered if anyone would like to participate? Basically it would be the GK Forum v. Fritz 9, I've never played a long time control game against it, never mind a CC type game. So is anyone up for crushing the mighty Fritz? ...this is where I find out that everyone else beats Fritz in blitz everyday and it's just me who can't do it! ;) I think maybe 3 or 4 candidate moves could be put… More: backgammon online

getting better Hi, I recently returned to playing chess after not playing for a few years. i started playing on MSN and one day stumbled on this site so i started reading the forums for advice and then recently started playing games here as well. I've discovered that i seem to be way out of my league even playing players around 1200. i seem to not get a good opener going and then just stumble my way through the rest of the game. I just… More: backgammon online

Knight vs. Bishop Forgive me if this is an old topic. I know the conventional wisdom is that a bishop is slightly more valuable than a knight but it seems to me in the end game a knight is more powerul. It may not have the reach of a bishop but a bishop is relegated to either black or white squares where a knight is not. It seems to me that would make it more valuable. A King could sit on the color opposite of the bishop and be untouchable by a… More: chess history

A Beginner's Perspective Hi fellows, I wanted to let you know what I think of several postings in this forum, as a beginner. Question of when to resign: At the current stage of my development (I hope it is one) as a chess player, I wouldn't like it at all if my opponent resigned even though I have only a small piece more than he has. How am I ever supposed to learn how to win games like this (I'm the losing one here): board #397794 if people play chess online…

Is chess as sport a destructive use of chess? absolutely not Why would you think that? it is NOT a sport It is not a sport Chess has tried for years and years to be a meber of the official Swedish Sports Association. But they are not allowed. From that can we understand chess is not a Sport. It is more to be regarded as An Intellectual Way of Playing A BoardGame. What next? Is Poker or Cardgames sport? Is Hide and Seeek a sport? Is Knitting a play chess online…

The King? A chess playing friend just told me that the chess engine The King won an international chess tournament against the likes of Fritz and Shredder. I'm quite sure that The King is the engine that powers Chessmaster -- and if so, this seems to upset the conventional wisdom that Fritz/Shredder/Junior are all much stronger than Chessmaster (usually derided as "not for the serious player"). Anyway, I'll head to chessbase or TWIC to find play chess online…

openings More and more I believe that it has no sense to know openings. I mean openings that are famous like sicilian,caro-kan,french,petroff and so on. Also openings with d4 with a name. Because for me in 90% of my games from the beginning my opponents take a different way.moves that not can be found in books or databases. I like it very much and long ago I decided not to use them myself anymore (books,databases). I think it's more useful to play chess online…

Your opinion on blitz pairings/sportsmanship? I play a lot at Chessanytime.com at different time controls from 3 mins to 10 usually. And personally, after winning with White, if a guy asks for a rematch (I'll get black in that for sure) then I give it to them if there are no "bad habits" noted during the first game & I have the time to play again. But some there now, have made it a regular practice that if they get WT the first game, they will play chess online…

Speculative gambits! So what are the most speculative/interesting/dynamic/sharp gambits you know? Which openings would be suitable for a maniac?! }:D My current opening repetoire consists of the first few moves of some of the sharp openings that forum members introduced me to a while back in a thread I made (thanks!), it has really allowed me to get some very interesting games going and has helped my analytical thought processes and tactic play chess online…

WCC Tomorrow the match between Anand and Kramnik starts for the world tittle. Seems that on GK nobody is busy with it.... or am I wrong? Say something about it; who do you think will win and why,prognoses and etc. I think Anand will win,but with only one point ahead.In my opinion Kramnik is not so good as Anand.Also physical he looks not so fit. As you see him I found he looks always very tired.But that's my opinion ,so common and let us know play chess online…

Pet systems I find that the more you go into chess, the more you want to find an opening you can truly call your own. I'm still looking for an opening I can call my own, but I'm interested - what opening would you call your own? The London System 1.d4 2.Nf3 3.Bf4,followed,if possible, by e3,Bd3,c3,Nbd2,with an eventual break with e3-e4. the bluebabygirl system one part chess -two parts poetry and the rest just pure love of the game . yours BBG play chess online…

Taking Down the Nimzo-Indian Does anyone have any recommendations for easy to learn, aggresive lines against the Nimzo-Indian (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4)? I've had some trouble against, and the one line I've tried (4.f3) hasn't given me much. I don't mind if the line is dubious, as long as it's fun. Stick to the main lines. Sorry, but there's really no choice but to stick to the main lines in the NID. White doesn't really have any gambits or any play chess online…

Knight(s) vs Bishop(s) Which is better; or at least which do YOU perform better with generally ... 2 Knights? or 2 Bishops ? Or a Knight and a Bishop ? One Knight or One Bishop? (also:Has anyone played a game where 2 Bishops have dominated a Rook + Knight?) (or 2 Knights have dominated vs a Rook + Bishop?) Personally, I find that my "2-Bishops" advantage is much more effective when come into early or expectedly based upon the opening variation, play chess online…

A game to analyse. I played the following game recently as black for my club. Anyone care to analyse and try to see how I lost? Although I did lose I count this game as one of my best performances and would be curious to see if a better player could see what I did wrong. Here's the game... 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.
