BOBBY FISCHER where are you. I feel robbed because the person who got me into chess is no longer available to us. Who does he keep in touch with in the United States, does anybody know? I read an article recently that he lived with the Polgar family and gives interviews on the radio in Manilla but I have heard nothing else for awhile. It seems to me that F.I.D.E. should try harder to bring him back to us. Either by backing a special tournament or… More: chess online

Resignation etiquette When is it impolite to keep playing out a game from a losing position. At what point does pressing on become rude. It seems to me that if you are 2 or more major pieces down and with no offsetting initiative it is simply wasting time to continue. Is it alright to ask opponents to please resign from such games - I do when I am in that position? This has been discussed before... I don't think anyone came to a definite… More: online chess

World Champion? I thought Kramnnik was world champion after winning it from Kasparov in 2000. However, I've just bought a book called "play the French 3.Nd2" and there's a game in there that claims Anand became world Champion after beating Shirov in 2000? I'm a bit confused can anyone shed any light on this matter? Thanks. Yet Another Claim ... I didn't know about this, since it was during my break from Chess. But I"ve also heard the claim… More: correspondence chess

Rook ending Question I'm studying the french advance variation and read a suggestion to play the fallowing position with the black peices to get a feel for playing against whites weak d-pawn in an end game: White: King at g1; Rooks at c1, and f1; pawns at a2, b2, d4, e5, f2, g2, h2. Black: King at g8; Rooks at c8, and f8; Pawns at a7, b7, d5, e6, f7, g7, h7. I know black has at least a tiny advantage, but when I play the computer I end up losing play chess online…

Playing style of the GMs I was just wondering if anyone knew the playing styles of Anand or Kramnik. Do they play positional or tactical? I would also like to ask if anyone plays the petroff's or the french and some insights on these openings. I would like to learn one out of the two to be able to play higher rated players than me and have a good chance for a draw rather than a win. Thanks in advance... To draw a higher-rated player, you have to play chess online…

Sicilian - Najdorf after a6.. what is considered the best move? seems like so many different moves are played at this point.. which is the most aggressive for white? which is the most solid.. which is theoretically considered the best move? most aggresive is 6. Bg5... Keep in mind that 5...a6 is a shade better than no move at all! Which is why the reputation of the Nadjorf is owed more to those who play it than 5...a6's positional play chess online…

An opening in search of a name ?! Actually two of them, which have seemed to become very popular in blitz chess lately. The first goes 1.e4 a6 ...b6 ...c6 ...d6 ...e6 ...f6 and the second goes something like 1.e4 b6 2. ...c6 ...d6 ...e6 ...f6 And incredibly, it can also be played against 1.d4 as well. What shall we call this thing? I'm tired of saying, "You know that a6 ...b6 ...c6 ... etc thing" Any suggestions? While I'd like to just call it play chess online…
