Chess is probably a game most of us can play.

Trading is something most of us try to do.

When we are not trading. perhaps many of us try to determine our "next move"

Determine your next move here. Announce you are available for a game. Agree which form of notation you and your opponent shall use, English or Algebraic.

Unless you agree otherwise, moves shall take no longer than 14 days to respond to. Unless otherwise agreed, the person not responding in 14 days shall default and lose.

This is the New Year. All matches shall commence no earlier than New Year's Day. Each player gets 100 points for a win...50 for a draw....0 for a loss. Players who refuse a match yet accept other matches....in what seems to be an evasive tactic to 'protect' their score, shall be penalized 50 points each occurance to preserve the honesty and dignity that we all cherish here on the Internet. (Whatever).

I will post stats each month. High score is the 'Chess King/Queen" for 1998. Scores thru December 31, 1998 included.

So? Are you a Chess Master? Or so busy making money in the markets a Market Master?
