Capablanca Was the greatest natural genius in chess history. Bobby Fischer said: "Capablanca was possibly the greatest player in the history of chess. Botvinnik said: "You can not play chess unless you have studied Capablanca's games". Even Kasparov said: "Capablanca invariably chose the right option, no matter how intricate the position".

speed chess I recently played chess with some members of a chess club at a local mall. I enjoyed playing live opponents because in my area they few and far between. What i didnt like is the fact they only played 5 min games. Their reasoning was that they could get more games in because they had limited time. I feel that timed chess is not chess at all. The enjoyment of the game is why I play. I would rather play one good game (win or lose) than… More: online chess

Thinking Technique In his book "How to Reassess your Chess" Jeremy Silman recommends this technique for thinking in chess. 1) Figure out the positive and negative imbalances for both sides of the board 2) Figure out the side of the board that you wish to play on. Note: you can only play where a favorable imbalance or the posibility of creating a favorable imbalance exists. 3) Don't calculate! Instead, dream up various fantasy positions, i.e.,… More: backgammon online

Draw offers When is it polite to offer a draw? how often? if you are playing a stronger player is it OK to offer a draw? and, is it a physiological dis-advange to have a draw offer declined? Draw Offers Hi sf115! I was told that you could offer a draw at any time during the game but you can only offer it once. More than once is perceived as agressive behaviour. I have had lower rated players offer draws to me in Congresses and tournaments and… More: correspondence chess

Elo GM? What rating do you have to get to be a Grandmaster? 2500?

Perfect play How far are top GM's from playing "perfect chess"? Also what about PC's and annotations? When it comes to OTB play- very far I would say. However CC play is a different story, here they can analyse with the best programs on the market and that I believe makes a significant difference, but still this will not be equal to "perfect chess" Just IMHO. Best wishes Cairo When? Perfect chess won't happen, until the entire game is play chess online…

Blindfold Chess? Has (or does) anyone play blindfold chess? How exactly do you go about it? I'm assuming you will need a 3rd person to move the pieces! When I first heard the term I just imagined two people with blindfolds on sitting at a table fumbling around and knocking all the pieces over! ;) I was just wondering about this as since I started playing chess, every night when I'm lying in bed before I fall asleep I start playing through games play chess online…

The French does anyone know anything about the French? suggest any good books on the French? Does anyone know anything about the line 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 dxe5 (Rubenstine variation)? The only thing... ... I can say about the Rubinstein Variation (which can also arise after 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 dxe4) is that many commentators reckon that by so playing Black "gives up the centre". I think it was Nimzovitch who gave the corrective to this: play chess online…

Following Opening to the letter BIG QUESTION: is it true that the player to first play "out of book" decreases his/her chances of winning? Well, there's no simple answer -- it's "yes" (if he makes a weaker move than a book line) or "no" if he comes up with a TN (theoretical novelty) that is better than the book line. And remember That "strong" and "weak" are relative terms. If your opponent deviates from a book line into uncharted territory, play chess online…

What is a low rating? This weekend, I went to another state's Open. There, one of the players in the Closed, rated about 1950, got angry and yelled at another player rated slightly higher than myself (my USCF rating is 1614). He yelled "you and your low ratings!" This had me thinking. I had a disastrous tournament, losing three miniatures, but I was most upset by the thought that, even though I have been working at chess nonstop for years, I can play chess online…
