general question about knights by Jules W.
In the knight's first move he lands in front of a pawn and prevents it from advancing. Is it good play to advance the pawn two squares before moving the knight out in general? //

Greed Question by Tanzen
Say I can get a rook from play. Or, if I take one extra move I can get set up to take a queen. Have the possibility that something will go wrong and be back to even play. Are there any chess proverbs about this? -- Pirouette

In Defence of FM Borislav Ivanov - An Observers (Not Blind) BriefPerspective. by Anonymous
I've given this topic a lot of agonizing thought. Please pardon my English. I am a long time observer of the game of Chess. First, l have read numerous blogs/forum/a buffalo professors claim (consequently inadmissible in a US court of law), and various claims (chess trainers) on the suspension of Bulgarian Foreign Chess Master (FM) Borislav Ivanov. From what I▓ve surmised? Ivanov plagiarized...

Did Fischer work at McDonald's ? by [email protected]
I just finished reading Frank Brady's biography about Robert James Fischer called "Profile of a Prodigy" In the book, the author writes that Fischer dropped out of high school to play chess professionally. Nowadays I guess making a living playing chess is not so much a struggle because of the Internet and numerous tournaments paying huge prizes and appearance fees. Your average American GM like...

Starting over by mdavis
I apologize for a repeat of the most frequently asked question on chess sites. Perhaps my question is a bit more specific than most. I was a former USCF member and played for a short time in tournaments in the Kansas City area back in the '70's (USCF ~1450 - no idea how that compares with the Elo system now in use). Time and family took me away. I did have an old copy of Chessmaster...

Italian Gambit Trouble by Pilotknight
If you "google" THE ITALIAN GAMBIT you'll locate this title (above) on the first or second page as a past "Chessbanter" subject. 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. d4!? (the Italian gambit). The discussion concerns 4....Nxd4 were the standard reply by White is 5. Nxe5?!, if Black replies with 5. Qe7!, White's got some real problems--this discussion and analysis is fairly comprehensive so I'll...

Fischer vs. karpov by Zero
Why didn't Karpov agree to play Fischer for the World Championship. I don't understand why he didn't agree to play but then FIDE decided to make Karpov the world champion afterwards.

Life of a Chess Professional by Zero
What is it like being a professional chess player? Is the lifestyle easy and do you make a good living. I was wondering why some people decide to become GMs while other decide to give after getting to a certain level of chess ability. Do you think it is a good idea for someone to spend 4 years and go to college and get a college degree or is it better to devote 4 years to studying and playing...

Fritz will bring you right back to where you were the last time. Why don't they have the same feature for Chessbase? Also I think it would be a good idea to have a previously view feature in these products where you could...
