Hey,

What do you think of chess? I play it competitively and I still enjoy it quite a lot. Was wondering if anyone here is into chess at all?

I guess it appeals to me as I don't have to have 6billion APM to compete at the highest levels tongue.gif

I played it competitively in 1990, stopped until about a year ago. I'm getting back into the groove again. I am amazed at how many cheats there AREN'T at the site I play at! I know they aren't cheating because I beat them ^^

I don't play it because it takes for some people ages to make a move. I can't wait 5 minutes for 1 move.

Play timed then. 10 mins each side is pretty fast paced.

They use a chess engine (software) to calculate the best move and then play it. Somehow the site manages to keep the cheats out quite well.

Agreed there. If you like it fast paced, then "Blitz" is the answer. 5 minutes to play the entire game for each player (max game time 10 minutes) is pretty fast paced too. Blitz handicaps are amazing to watch... imagine 5 minutes on one clock and 1 minute on the other clock. The poor player with 60seconds for the whole game is always funny to watch ^^
