>I been playing chess on line for about a year now. I don’t play a lot because life is too busy, but I always like to have at least one game going. The place I play is chessworld.net. You can sign up as a guest for free (or pay an annual fee if you want more features).

The basic premise is based on correspondence chess, that is, you make a move and your opponent has a set number of days in which to reply. Typically it’s up to 5 days per move, but it can be anywhere from 1 to 15+ days per move. This means there’s no pressure to make your move right away. It also means you can easily have more than one game going at a time.

Below is the first game I won on chessworld.net. I was playing black. You can use the controls to watch each move.


I certainly did not play all that well, but I was able to take advantage of his scattered pawn structure and the fact that he brought out his queen too early which forced him into some backpedaling.

If you are at all curious about playing chess online, I would encourage you to check out chessworld.net
