There is no substitute for the real thing.

I find the analyse board very convenient. It's how it suits you.
Almost all chess beginners use the actual board while the older chess
player got use to black and white board. If you displaced one piece on the actual board while analysing it, you'll be in trouble.

Don't be scared of what you cannot see, your only fear is possibility,
never wondered what the hell went wrong,  your second chance may never come along.
Hold on now your exits here, it's waiting just for you,
don't pause too long its fading now, its ending all too sooooon,
you'll see. ~pete murray~

Just move the King on castling side and it will castle when you press the MOVE thing.

And how!  Gotta be really careful!

I didn't have a chess set, so I went and bought a cheap one.  I got one that's too cheap! sad.gif  The pieces are so tiny I can't tell the bishops from the pawns, nor the queen from the rooks!  I do think it's helped a little, though.  Only now I'm gonna have to spring for a bigger chess set!

When I saw that opening I thought there must be a trick to it! :-D

I still don't know exactly how to play out the end game, though. hmm.gif

(Don't feel too bad, Tal!  I didn't actually capture your queen.  I just bribed her with leftover Easter candy and she defected. <G>)
