Thanks!

I don't see it though

It would have helped if I had added permissions!

Thanks for pointing that out. It should appear in the top navigation bar now.

I'll challenge a few of you to chess soon. Perhaps we can play a complete game tomorrow.

If you got a chess board sitting at home then we can play anytime. I use to be in the US Chess Federation as a junior member I was ranked 14th in the State of Illinois. I had challenged the No. 1 seat in Illinois his name was Dr Steven Tennant. But back then I was young and got into some trouble so I missed out.

I have played several US Chess Masters. Robert Brown being the most significant. I have not lost to any except Brown who I lost to 4 times. But have been him 12 times. Looks like I might have to break out my standard tourney set. I don't have a clock anymore.

Btw I have beat Mychess III which was the computer that won on a fluke and beat the Russian Master Anatoly Karpov. Look forward to any that would like to play.

Yeah I will just need to learn the feature on here.....or we can just play thru the private messages. As Sometimes one has shit happen and then must break from the game. This way the game is at your leisure. Even if you would like to study as some do.

Been quite some time that I have played. My sons always Asked me to teach them. I never did. I told them it was because I did not like to beat them, and that in that type of game. I just couldn't let them win. Althought I did show them How the pieces moved and explained enpassant to them.
