Hello everyone, If you play chess then you've come to the right place...

To start off, what openings do you play?  I like 1.e4 personally.

Who wants to play? there are some great sites for correspondance chess...

I like chess. I don't think I'm that bad at it (well at general level, I'd get slaughtered by a proffessional). I'd play you, but I kind of played so much in the last tournment I'm sick of chess at the mo wacko.gif . I'm currently recovering from it. I'll play you come the next tournment if you want.

I usually start off with the Cole opening, but everyone's now so used to it I should really pick a new one.

I play at free online chess at ChessManiac.  You don't have to pay to play on this site.  It is completly free.  My team is End Game.  Anyone can create a team, club or tournament.  I play on the other two sites but I can't afford to pay a membership.
