While I have been an avid member of this site, I have noticed and notable gulf between the people who play RTC and CC.
To me, RTC just seems so impersonal, you play a game for 15 minutes and then you just leave. I have played RTC four times and have found each game, ultimately, personally unenjoyable.
Whereas, I play 99% of my games on CC. I actually get excited when I go onto "My Ongoing Games" to see if it is my turn in any of my games. I look forward to the chance to stop and think for a few moments about how the game may pan out and what I can do to influence the game pattern. I enjoy the hard thinking as I often find myself unchallenged in school, my mind restricted to the level of lesser mind and intellect. I enjoy the fact that I know when i may lose a game... but the important thing is that I enjoy it: the people I have played against have all had the decency to say "Good luck" or, in one case, "You're really good for your age" before, during or after a game....

I have been playing chess for four years already. In 2004, I was introduced to international chess by my elder cousin. He was and still in advance level. I would say I am in intermediate 1 level. I wouldn't dare say I am very good but I ain't any pushover either. I was inspired by my cousin and Bobby Fischer to play chess. While lead by hunger for more competition, I train myself to improve. However my lack of concentration is a major factor to many of my losses. Frankly speaking I'm better at real time chess rather than day by day chess because of concentration. But it is also because I know I can improve further on my skills and concentration, I play more and more and against many people. Not only players around my standard but of those who are weaker and stronger. It brought me joy and thrill. Playing chess has some good effects on me such as being slightly more patient(Im not a very patient person), mathematics subjects grades are improved as well. As time goes by, I know more frie ...

I see that in chess schools, the best chess players don't like to play against weak players because they're no challenge for them. But they don't understand that they were beginner when they learned how to play chess, and it was with strong peoples they learned chess' basics.
In the other hand, weak peoples don't like to play against these strong chess players, because they're . But to be good chess player, they have to play against them.
Unlikely, I think it happens a lot of time. Before I was good, I remember that I didn't like to play against the strongest players of the school, but a day someone told me to give a try. I was sceptic, but after giving a try, I was finally getting fun to learn every day. Finally, I did beated the best of my school. So now I'm helping weaker peoples to teach'em chess. I think that kids have to play with everybody, because it's the only way to get proud of friends, whether if they're strong or weak.... Read more >>>

It's a opening that I played many times before, but I wonder what people think about this. It's the Keres attack in the Scheveningen of the Sicilian. So it goes like this : 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 d6 6.g4. I think that people don't use this because it'll goes to a wierd positon.... Read more >>>

I play chess because I enjoy the challenge of forcing your opponent into making moves that you want them to make. It is rewarding to play a match in which you are evenly pitted against someone else, and you play waiting for the other person to make either a mental mistake or they "blink." At that point in the game it is up to you to take advantage and press home your victory. Chess is generally not a forgiving mistress when you make mistakes. It helps me to be better disciplined in my thinking, my concentration on tasks, and in forseeing possible consequences to actions taken in the present.

I usually played black 1e4,e5; 2Nf3,Nf6;3 Bc4,Bc5 4.0-0,Nf6 5Nc3,0-0 etc
But once had an idea: 1.e4,e5 2.Nf3,Nc6 3.Bc4,f5!!!
If 4.exf5...e4!!! 5.Ng1(the single chance to save the Knight) and black has a good advantage and will get the pawn later.
Now something stops the black attack(just for a move)
If 5...d5?? 6.Qh5+,g6? 7.fxg6,Ng6???(i was playing like that once) 8. g7+!!!,Nxh5 9.g7xh8=Q and I was lost
But the way I had to play was 5… Nf6! A move which would appear to be defensive but it’s potentially offensive later and the black has an advantage.
6 d3(best for white) ...d5! 7 Bb5 (or Bb3)...Bxf5 and black has a strong attack and good position.
What do you thik about that opening?
I liked the ideea of the Jaenish defence to sacrifice the pawn in Ruy Lopez 3...f5 (instead of a6 or d6)
But i don't like that in Ruy Lopez white can take the knight and has good attack.... Read more >>>

After reading some of the blogs by players here I am appalled of what motivate them to play. This person that used to live in the ghetto catches my attention best. it makes me realise how lucky I am.How can a person be so knowingly live in a barbaric place unless he don't have a choice?Can a person be different from an environment he grew up when he moves to a different place? or will he bring the trouble to his new place?Will he be saying " You don't know where I'm from, so don't mess up with me!". Thanks to the chess game , I feel wherever you come from...we have common interest.
Will you be intimidated to play chess against a person who just finished serving his 30 years sentence in jail? I'm not...because chess has its own rules and everybody who plays chess knew the rules. What motivates me the most is Chess : is the game for everyone and it brings people together.... Read more >>>
