Speed chess is absolutely my downfall.  I can usually hold my own in regular chess but speed chess just sucks every bit of ability out of me.  Usually won’t play faster than 5min a side because beyond

Anyone here a fan of the logician's game? I love it, but I am quite bad. Still, it would be pretty fun to have a group that can play together and try to improve. Just checking if there would be any in

I can make a topic in the tabletop club if people want. Also, Chess.com is free and tries its best to give you an estimated FIDE rating, which is pretty neat.

Does PS3 or PS4 offer anything in the chess department?

PS4 has a number of chess programs, like Pure Chess and Chess Ultra. Chess Ultra even has a VR component.

 

I used to play scholastic and adult tourneys in high school. Was way more into chess theory than actually playing, though.

I have an account with Chess.com and it is free. There is a paid version which includes a bunch of extras but it depends how much you really want to analyze your game. I get into spurts of playing chess randomly throughout the year. I prefer speed chess. If anyone would like to play I wouldn't mind a match here or there.

I beat the computer in a game, but I didn't do that great. For whatever reason, I seem to be a lot better at speed chess.

I guess I'm the opposite. I do better making split second moves than I do when I have time to think about it.

One of the earliest things I learned when learning professional chess was "never trade". The person who initiates a trade is nearly ALWAYS giving away advantage. Simply NEVER initiate a trade and you'll almost instantly find your game improving.
