    Any Chess nuts out there! Anand vs Carlsen Round 5

    Any Chess nuts out there! Anand vs Carlsen Round 5. I love chess and play online or at a club whenever I can. If you want to see all the excitment go to :
    » LIVE – FIDE World Chess Championship 2013

    The first four games were a draw.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    Well since the paint has dried I guess I'll give it a shot until the grass starts growing again.
    Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....

    Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.

    Breaking news!!! Anand just took off his jacket! I wonder how much the commentators get paid?
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    join Chess.com. It is pretty good online playing..with or without players.

    I enjoy playing chess. I do not enjoy watching other people play chess. That being said, I do appreciate the mental aspect of what the players are doing.

    Edit: I also just took off my jacket

    I was going to make one of my usual snide remarks (see almost any other comment I have made on any other thread). I see that the ^^^^^^^^^^^^ posters have this well in hand and do not need any help from little old me.

    Chess Nuts. Now that's funny.

    I use different caliber rounds for the pieces. But people always shy away from playing with me - never figured out why

    I used to play on FICS but when I switched to a mac I could not figure out how to compile Xboard. I mean, can't someone just make it so you can download the binary? Not all of us are geeks and get a thrill "compiling" someone else's code. Sheesh.

    I will try out chess.com. Suntzu, is it free or is there a membership fee? Are there many players? I liked fics because I could always find someone at my skill level. Some servers are a wasteland.

    French Defense, BABY!! YEAH!

    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
