men>women? im rooting for the human right as in everyone is equal and i think everyone would but theres something i dont get.how come the female GM title doesnt seem worth versus the men GM title?so far only judit polgar made the men gm title(?). probably because they lowered the standard to achieve a WGM title. They cheapened it when they did that. the 3 first women with normal GMs where: Susan Polgar Pia Cramling Judith Polgar That was in… More: backgammon online

2.Ke2 It may only work in blitz games but I have had more than a little success with 2.Ke2. It goes against everything you've ever been taught but there's two interesting traits to abandoning your "God given right to castle" early. 1. Surprise - No one expects 2.Ke2. You have taken them out of their comfort zone. 2. Zen-like response - Because some will wilt under the confusion and others will attack wildly, tossing structure to the wind, you… More: online chess

Prodigy interesting article here: www.chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp?newsid=959 Best wishes Cairo I had the fortune ...or misfortune, to play young Fabiano,in a Polgar CC event,3 years ago. One of the worst beatings I've ever taken on the chessboard,got crushed in 21 moves. One of the prime reasons that convinced me to give up OTB chess shortly thereafter! Nice Maybe we have another prodigy closer to us karjahkin . Someone skilled care to test… More: backgammon online

Novice Nook #12 Wow, hard to believe we've been at this 12 weeks already! This week's article is entitled "Analysis and Evaluation" and can be found at: -> www.chesscafe.com Sorry I didn't contribute last week. Too many irons in the fire. ws Interesting... To be honest, I didn't think the article that helpful to begin with, but the practical examples makes it clearer what he is driving at. The examples are not at all difficult, but their… More: chess history

Numerical value of the King I was just wondering what the numerical value of a king is. Obviously it depends on the situation but just a rough numerical value for the king. Obviously if the king is checkmated its game over so the question is more what is the value of the Kings MOBILITY. In some books it is 5 in others it is 3. I would be thinking that its value is around 3 as I don't think it would be as powerful as a rook. Any Reinfield values?… More: correspondence chess

French defense p-e4 p-e6 n-c3 b-b4 Edvice? you mean:... 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb4? You mean advice? For which side? I presume you're asking for advice as White? Standard is 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5 (4...c5 5.a3 Bxc3 6.bxc3 Ne7 7.Qg4. White threatens to take out Black's K-side pawns. Sometimes, Black will let him do so, in the interests of central and Q-side pressure/attack). But from move 4 both sides have options. White could hit the play chess online…

Chess-Programms and CC www.chessbase.de/nachrichten.asp?newsid=3549 Quite interesting project and results (unfortunately only available in German as far as I can see.) Main results in short: 1. Chess engines do profite (more than expected) from longer/unlimited thinking-time. 2. With more thinking-time chess engines are even stronger in devensive play! So a human player should not risk unclear positions or doubtful sacrifices. 3. To win play chess online…

Improving Chess past Tactics I've finally joined the chess club. While I've only been defeated by one kid so far our of everyone I played I'm still at 11. Out of all the members. This kid has beaten me everytime and it's chess a bit beyond tactics. We had one close game where I managed to take his queen and I was sure I was going to win, I let down defenses and he mated me, when I didn't even see it coming. He's moved up to 5 in the club now. I play chess online…

the closed sicilian can anyone tell me whites (and blacks) basic plans in the closed sicilian? 1 e4 c5 2 Nc3 Does white normally play a kingside fianchetto and is white castling kingside etc? what do you think are the (dis-)advantages of this opening? Does it normally lead to tactical or to strategical positions? has anybody some games to share? i'd like to know a little more about this opening, since there's not as much theory to know as in play chess online…

Transferrability of Chess Many claim that chess teaches skills, attitudes, and insights applicable to other aspects of life. Is this only hype or can anyone demonstrate that transfer? NO It's all sophisticates' pretentious rubbish. I know of several chess players who are very strong and highly intelligent people...but complete idiots, Blatman(Greater than your average scumbag) to blatman your statement seems quite confusing . how can they be play chess online…

How about this 4 an opener When i first started playing chess i always started with e4, lately however i have been using e3. Which one is better? better g4 is best . Why are you using e3, and what made you change? i use e3 so i dont have to go thru the ritual of avoiding the 3 step checkmate Interesting... The "3 step mate" opening usually leads to a weak position for the opening phase of the game... I would love for a player to open with that play chess online…

e4 We have all seen it! Please tell me if you know,what is the *'ideal' response (and subsequent moves) for an OTB club player? * 'ideal' could mean many things, for me at my level I believe it is NOT simply 'best by test' Your opinions greatly received! Spurt. my favorite response to 1.e4 is 1...Nf6. the most normal continuation is 1.e4 Nf6 2.e5, where white tries to build a strong center and make space for normal piece development. as play chess online…

Openings you love or hate to play against My personal opinion is one must choose openings based on own taste & skill level, instead of trying anything that might (or might not!) be annoying for opponents. You can never find an opening variation all opponents hate to play against, but you can find openings that maximize your chances to get a position you like. Anyway, I still have two questions for the members of GK: 1. What is your opening move play chess online…
