I have played on the free internet chess server since it was only available in ASCII (and when it had a different name). Love to play, especially with like minded folks. Let me know if you are ever on and up for a game.

Not really elegant, but I think the 2/1 format makes for some bad choices if you aren't an expert.

Hah, so many ridiculous things.  I love the beginning, as the king gets chased around half the board.

And ends up right back where he started!  I was just sitting there chuckling at my inability to trap him out in the middle.

I haven't played online in years but we have a group that meets at the coffee house twice a week.

There are some really strong players where I live.  But I enjoy the games as we all have differing styles of play.  I lean toward the Tal and Shirov for inspiration.  Another guy plays very solid like Botvinnik and Petrosian.  Another guy is a big Capablanca fan.

Just when we think we are getting good, there is a local FIDE Master who shows up and wipes the floor with us!  He's rated ~2400 ELO.  (I look at it as free chess lessons.)

Good times.
