Just wondering how long have you guys been playing chess? :blink:

I learned when I was little but never really played.

Started playing a bit more freshman year in person and with whatever people I could. Started playing online about 4 years ago on Zone.com, still don't really play that much today. Then this tourney popped up and I thought "heck, why not? :P "

Just wondering how long have you guys been playing chess?

I really only started playing in the school chess club when I was 12, was in that for 6 years. Nadn't played since I was 18 when I took part in the first tournment. But its all about looking at the board and remembering moves, so it only takes a few games to work of the rust.

No, it means you've lost one match. You have to play everyone, twice. When you win, you get 3 points. After everyone has played everyone, twice, then the scores are tallied. :)

I was wondering that myself (how many games are to be played). I thought it stopped at 6 all up because it was said you could have 6 games going.

I personally used to be quite good at chess as a kid, but uh, my chess playing stopped right there so besides a few games here and there I really haven't played in years.

Is anyone else finding RHP slower than before? Not the whole site but the chess board, especially in the "Analyse Board" screen it takes ages to load each position.

Just wanted to know if this was a site problem or a problem with my computer, and if the latter whether anyone has any suggestions?

I think it's the site, it can be quite slow sometimes.

Oh well, at least it's not just me. Although I was kind of hoping it was my computer then at least I could do something about it :hmm:

It doesn't do that very often actually, right now for example the site is really quick. I rarely have any speed issues with it, although it can happen sometimes.

If it does it all the time for you then it could be a problem at your end.
