I love to play, but I'm not that great at it. I can only see about three moves ahead (in general), which is not exactly spectacular, but it's still a lot of fun. Because even though I lose fairly often, I like the thought process.

If you can go 14 moves into the Breyer Variation of the Ruy Lopez and still know you're in the main line or if you know the difference between a Queens Pawn Counter Gambit and a Greco Counter Gambit maybe we could play a game. http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif

I play chess with the people in my life, like the mindless pawns that they are

Eventine, would you believe me then if I said I conducted an analysis of the famous game GM Browne won using the Frankenstein-Dracula variation of the Vienna Game? http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/wink.gif

I was a chess master in my youth and have managed to beat a few grandmasters in my time. Not very good currently because I haven't found anyone to play and I am immobile, can't get around to sandbag the tournaments anymore.

Has anyone ever played on MSN? Its free, and a timekiller... I havn't played in a long time though

If MSN is like Yahoo the level of play is not that high. The place to go for chess on the internet is the ICC or for a free server the FICS. Dangerously addicting though....
Penumbra a resident master and GM killer? Wow that's neat! http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Chess is an enjoyable, time consuming experiance. I am not exactly what you could call an amateur player but then I am not exactly a vetran either. I can beat my friends and relatives and used to loiter on the yahoo boards. I did well in the scores department and actually was in the top bracket before I stopped playing. Of course, I would be no match for a true player who competes in the tournaments that float around. I have never tried one, but I would like to keep at least a shred of confidence around my fragile ego.
