    I tried it years ago, but haven't played in a long time.

    If I get the time I might check I out.

    Anyone who advertises the fact that they play online chess has got to be pretty damn good imo. Good luck Abbey, let us know the score ;)

    Cheers mate. At the moment it's fairly even. I'm white, no pieces taken.

    Online, how can you ever be sure that your opponent isn't benefiting from "assistance"?

    If you take a look at the T&C you will notice any cheats will and do get banned. But whats the point of cheating in reality? I know some people do but :censored:

    You should give it a try mate. There is a vast contrast of players there. AS a guide, everyone starts out at a rating of 1200 then is assesed after 5 games and thereafter. Everyone has stats that can`t be messed with too.

    It`s also free (optinal) and browser based so no downloads.
