Fisher v Karpov... Does anyone know why Fisher didn't defend the World title against Karpov in the mid seventies ? Who do you think would have won ? Wonder if bluebabygirl can write a poem about that one... Fischer had a history of chickening out, there is no question of who would've won, Fischer didn't have the balls. Anonymous ughaibu. No name but full of..... While it quite to have an opinion here, it is not to have swear words. Swear? Balls… More: chess online

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f6 opening 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f6 Every chess databases that I have shows white almost won 100% in this opening.Theory say this is bad opening for black, it is true?.I think I will create a thematic tournament with this opening for high rated player to prove it.Good or not? I don't play double king pawn openings much, but from what I know about them development and king safety are pretty much the be-all and end-all. Since 2...f6 exposes… More: online chess

The French Defence Is this defence suitable to all chess players? I have heard that beginners shouldn't use it but I don't see a concrete reason why. What are your thoughts on this? Would this be suitable to me? Forgot... to thank you guys in advance! Thanks! Let's see here.... Yes, it's suitable to all chess players. I can't imagine why someone would say it's not suited to beginners. In my opinion it's an excellent choice for a beginner… More: backgammon online

opening database How many people actually use an opening database during their games ? I don't as I have been told too many times that I should concentrate more on my tactics and endgame . If I had the time or inclination maybe I could make the effort and use a database for my openings , but would it improve my play ? I doubt the quality of your games would improve in the short term, but I think in the long run you would learn more so it might… More: chess history

Who are those players ? Here are descriptions of some of the well-known chess players of history. For each description, your mission, should you accept it, is to guess which player it refers to. The person who wrote those descriptions is a well-known chess-player and chess-writer himself. So we can at least assume he knows what he's talking about. 1. His aim is always to sieze the initiative. A remarkably deep combination player who can think… More: correspondence chess

Fritz 8 vs. Chessmaster 9000 Which do you guys think is better. Even though I currently use CM 9000, Fritz is very good. It plays so well. You think you are playing a human. The world champion of chess played it and was only came out with a draw. Now I've never heard anything about CM9000 doing that. Chess Comes to Me as Water flows downhill Lime T.

Sicilian Fantacism While the great majority of my games here at GK with the White pieces are 1 d4 games, I have recently decided on a change of venue and mostly play 1 e4 now. I made this change because I want to familiarize myself with the 1 e4 openings, but am chagrined to discover that I will only be learning the Sicilian (ok that's an exaggeration, barely though!). What's the deal here? I really don't believe that the Sicilian is an play chess online…

Latvian Gambit I was wondering what black's best continuation is after the following set of moves: 1.e4,e5 2.Nf3,f5 3.exf5 thanks.... Latvian Gambit 3...e4 I was white against this and got CRUSHED!! 3exf5 I am almost sure that that is wrong. The only analyzed games I of that I have seen involved either 3.d3 or 3.Nxe5. I actually have a BIG BOOK OF UNORTHODOX OPENINGS somewhere, if only I could find it. sure! e4 looks like the right kind of move play chess online…

If you could change... any rule for the movement of pieces, would you or would you leave the game as is? If you decided to change a rule, what would be your proposal? Rule One Random placement of the pieces of the first rank, with the proviso that the Bishops had to go on opposite colours. All existing theory would then be thrown out of the window, computer databases would be worthless and we could return to playing Chess as a test of our play chess online…

Your choice against the marshall? The marshall gambit is 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 b5 6.Bb3 Be7 7.Re1 0-0 As you can see in this position black sacrifices the pawn. However I find the position after the sacrificed pawn to be some what risky for white, where black has many practicle chances e.g. 8.c3 d5! 9.exd5 Nxd5 10.Nxe5 Nxe5 11.Rxe5 c6 12.d3 (d4 may be better but is well known as a draw, black has simply to much piece play chess online…

updating fritz I currently have fritz 7, is it worth updating to fritz 8? If you can beat Fritz 7, its worth consider an update to Fritz 8, but if you can't, maybe you should consider a "degrade" to Fritz 6 :-)) Good "skullhunting" ahead! Best wishes Cairo Save your dollars get some good books on the end-game instead :-) it's not so much for beating the computer. I use if for analysing games. Better to have Chessmaster At my level (around 1450 play chess online…

OVERSIGHTS My number one biggest weakness in all my chess games, is not positional, it's not lack of opening or endgame knowledge, it is not poor calculation skills, or lack of knowledge of attacking the king in the middle game. The biggets reason I lose chess games, or draw winning positions, is OVERSIGHTS. You know the surprise move your opponent plays that you either didn't condsider becasue it looks strange, or you just had a blind spot for play chess online…

Novice Nook, #4 It's Friday, so the discussion about the next Novice Nook column is now open... quick link to colum: -> www.chesscafe.com Good advice (Heisman #4)... ...but Bill Hartston has a different view on what you should do once you have found a good move: play it! I recall Bronstein and Keres have come unstuck by looking for 'better' moves. Keres was once said to have found 5 ways of winning a particular game, but played a sixth. He play chess online…
