Been kind of hanker'in for a game, although, at an easier pace than in the past. Any takers? (Don't do e-mail)

What happened to the chess thread? No posts since '99? Why not get it going again, eh?

Gee, I dunno.

Perhaps the answer lies in the reluctance of Americans to think and plan out a coherent strategy

It's the Internet Chess Bubble....Chess Riches came too easily in the '90s. Now that people have to work for success in Chess the lure of the game isn't what it once was........

2 games have been played in the current world championship match between kramnik and topalov. kram won both as topa overextended in a drawn position in game 1 and then missed 2 forced wins in game 2. both games were atypical for this level as they were very exciting. topa is known for taking a lot of chances. after topa's game 2 miscues, kram's defense and ultimate win in game 2 in a very unclear position was amazingly precise.

I know the game, but don't have the patience for it. But, this is a good site that has a 'puzzle of the day' e.g., white to play. Monday's puzzle is the easiest and Sunday's is the hardest. It's fun and doesn't take too much time.

Another enjoyable one wih a daily puzzle is gmchess.com
Click on the 'position of the day' chessboard icon on the right. A pop-up applet window appears with the puzzle. You have to allow the pop-up if you have a pop-up blocker working in your browser. A rather wry commentator at the bottom of the board makes remarks as you guess the moves to win.
