Ruy Lopez. What do i do as black. Hi. I am quite new to chess but i have studied a few of the openings such as the Italian game, FRence defence, caro kann, laskers defence and a few others but up until now i have been avoidin what is apparently the most popular open game. I have tried to avoid any chance of having to play against the Ruy LOpez by playing the French or Caro Kann because i have looked at the ruy lopez and seen there are literally… More: backgammon online

Matchoffer see this interesting link here: -> rybkaforum.net Bw. Cairo Very interesting A lot seems to be made in those forums about Rybka being denied an opening book, but I've got to believe that the real disadvantage would be removing the tablebases. I mean, is there any computer out there who could even run a B+N mate correctly without TB assistance? That's an enormous number of possible positions, and you'd have to have a fast machine play chess online…

Simplification 'Simplification' this is something I do a lot these days, the process of trying to win, even by the smallest of margins because I know what I need to secure the mate. OK, so I basically do not allow my opponent any counter play and simplifying whittles the position down to terms that prove the win. I can even somethings shun material when a more secure simplification is possible, I don't think a computer would play this, so this play chess online…

'7 Deadly Sins' of Chess ! If you had to create your own '7 Deadly Sins' of Chess play ...What would they be? I mentioned elsewhere that I thought two of the worst were 1) laziness {espec in analysis} {theoretical unpreparedness too} & 2) wishful thinking {hoping for errors, & unjustified trappiness for egs.} What else now ... lets see. 3) overconfidence {especially believing you have seen "a move further" when it is your opponent who has!} 4) play chess online…

1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 cxd5 4.c4!? I read that this 4th move of White puts the Caro-Kann Defence "almost out of business some years ago". Do you agree and why? After 4. .. Nf6 White plays 5.c5 . This is the Gunderam attack in which White has the queenside pawn majority. If White can support the c5 pawn ( b4) , he can try to go for a passed pawn. The analysis looks good, but I had poor results in practical play . This is the Panov attack. The play chess online…

A question from an old Novice Nook. I'm still catching up with these (reading #15-25 in various order at the moment) and I have a question about something that was in "#15 - a counting primer". In the following example he is using the Kaufmann values (P=1, N=3.25, R=5, Q=9.75) and I don't quite follow what he is saying: Quote: "The following is an example of an exchange sacrifice that strong players make routinely but weak players often do not play chess online…

Computer vs Human Who plays the more interesting game of Chess? Who would you rather play? I made a remark in another topic, that computers may come to out compute us, but will never play with the wealth of interesting ideas that a human puts into a game. About 4 days a year, I will sit down and play vs Computer, computer, comtuper, et al, and while the day away at it. Other than that, I would rather play vs a human any day. Most any human.

attacking closed sicilian When I'm white I tend to play e4 most times and often get ...c5 in return. I immediately play 2.Nc3 because I don't want an open sic. whereI don't know very much at all. And also from a psychological point of view that 1...c5 players probably prefer open games. My games typically get to a point like this: [Event "Edited game"] [Site "MAT228"] [Date "2004.11.30"] [Round "-"] [White "-"] [Black "-"] [Result "*"] 1. e4 play chess online…

Bobby Fischer is Checkmated. First, let me say that I am an admirer of Bobby Fischer the Chess Player. There was a story on ESPN this morning recounting Fischer's life and current status and it was produced by Jeremy Schapp, the son of Dick Schapp who tried to be a father figure to Bobby when he was 12 years old as well as documenting his rise to chess lore. Much later, Dick Scapp apparently wrote that Fischer " did not have a sane bone in his play chess online…

Chess Puzzle This is an old and popular chess puzzle that baffled me for years.Does anyone know the answer??.Well,I know the answer. A chess game begins with 1.e4 and ends in the fifth move with knight takes rook mate. Reconstruct the game. hmmm In six moves is easy, for example: 1.e5 a6 2.Qh5 b6 3.Nf3 c6 4.Ne5 h6 5.Nxf7 g5 6.Nxg8# Final position Now, it seems quite difficult to do the same in just five moves.
