Re: Chess fanatics?

And I like chess but I'm terrible

I get all worked up and paranoid about a game too, but it's definitely fun to play in the evenings (and to comment on a game and give advice, even though I dislike people doing it to mine )

Re: Chess fanatics?

I used to play a lot, even had a top 20 ranking for under-11 age group in Scotland, but then I gave up and really haven't played much since....

Re: Chess fanatics?

Used to play in high school, but not much anymore.

Should play online when I have some time.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

Re: Chess fanatics?

It has been awhile since I last played, but I am quite good at chess.

Re: Chess fanatics?

I don't play chess myself, but I follow the tournaments - my friend is a very good chess player, even used (or tried) to live on chess when he was younger, and we sometimes still go to international tournaments, etc. So I have no clue of the game, but I follow the results, I read the articles, the interviews...
Chess players are pretty funny people. The Toiletgate last year was great entertainment.
