Watched this last night. 4 player online chess. I thought it was fascinating, well worth a watch if you're interested in the game.

 
A good strategy in Chess is to not start by moving all your pawns 2 squares up and going on the "attack". You leave yourself wide open and your pawns get massacred. Patience is a virtue in Chess. Take your time, think ahead, and protect your bigboys.
Since the new year I’ve been playing against the computer on this site.

I’m up to level 3. My tactics are the opposite of yours - I try to remove as many of the opponent’s pieces ASAP. I finish most games within 10 minutes.
 
Just beat the comp on lev 2 will try lev 3 later.
It’s quite addictive. I send in kamikaze pawns early on to take their bigger pieces, but retain some to promote to a Queen.

You must remember that computers work on the basis of known patterns. Do something out of the ordinary and they can be stumped.

Well, during that game I just played I made an absolute bollocks move leaving me wide open for the taking and the comp made a bizarre move too and I quickly took back control I suppose that wouldn't happen on any level above 5.

Game of kings.

A great game. My grandad got me a lovely set as a kid and I can still smell the varnished wooden folding board, the felt-bottomed pieces and the 70 year old primer he included inside it, choc full of puzzles to checkmate in a set number of moves.
