    I'll play him any time any place, if I was to stop playing for fun and start playing properly he wouldn't stand a chance I was trained by the Samurai.

    Has anyone on here used any good learning tools? Specifically endgame.
    I just drew a game I was completely winning because I was down on time and didn't know how to finish it off, so I offered a draw instead of taking the frustrating time loss.

  3. Loads of stuff on YouTube.

    Start with King and Pawn v King and work from there.

    That's pretty much what I had. I could defend properly so I promoted and stopped them promoting, but couldn't finish it. I checked after and was only a couple moves from checkmate which is annoying, but I just couldn't see it. I'll go through lessons on YouTube, cheers!

    I haven't read through the whole thread... are you playing each other against the clock? How long for games? I used to love playing chess - pretty rubbish especially at speed chess. Quite like a casual game but not played in years.
     
  7. You can play any time limit you like. Over days if you want.

    I've just signed up: ShackRTG. Feel free to add me - I haven't played in donkey's and was never much cop anyway! Just getting my excuses in for being shite.

    Cheers for first game. Was hanging on for dear life - way too good for me mate! Need to get the old brain cells firing again!

  12. Nah you'll be a canny player with a little practice.

    I'll give the same advice to everyone, that nearly everyone ignores:
    Control the middle
    Develop your pieces
    Castle early

    My friend is now kicking my arse after like 5 games and me telling her the same thing over and over. Quite annoying, really

  14. It works!
    I tell folk, they don't do it, I win
    They start doing it, they bloody smash me.

    Unless you play the modern defense, just watch the novices getting clobbered in the middle game.He He ;)
