Chess talent How do you know if you are naturally gifted at the game? Is there any real way to determine if you are going to become a GM or something? Imo There is one very good way to tell if one will Not become a GM. That is if they try to make it unassisted, without a trainer that has dealt with players of such calibre. Someone serious about international Chess needs to seek out an individual who has made a GM already and pay the price. I have… More: backgammon online

Bobby Fisher Dead He died in Iceland at the age of 64 the BBC is reporting. I believe Bobby Fischer died on Thursday but the news is only being released today. He will leave a lasting legacy of brilliancies behind him and can be rightly proud that millions of new players were attracted into Chess due to his exploits over the chessboard. A BBC report of Jan 18, 2008 It actually says 12 minutes ago, on the release, but that must mean from time of… More: backgammon online

Best books to have? Which type of chess books is better to have? 1) A book on opening strategy? 2) A book on opening lines? 3) A book on general strategy? 4) A book on tactics? 5) A book on the middlegame? 6) A book on the endgame? 7) A book on a specific opening? Any and all suggestions are solicited! Regards, ThroneSeeker I should imagine books no.3 and no.4 are the best, since you should aim to improve your all round game rather than focus play chess online…

Best opening ? I would like some input about the 'best' openings in chess. I play most of my games from black so my white opening repertoire is lacking. I'd like to specialize/study one or two of the most effective openings but don't have time to search through the countless variations and books dedicated to promoting them. Thanks Silver bullet Sorry there isn't one, as white you make the first move but the other guy makes the second etc. There play chess online…

What is in your Chess Library I am starting an in depth study of the game and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on books to have on the shelf? I have Silmans "Amatuers Mind", and that silly Fischer book? Other than that I have a book on Chess Traps that is doing me no good at all. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Suggestion... I think Standard Chess Openings would be a good opening book to start with (by Eric Schiller)... play chess online…

When to fianchetto? I don't understand the concept of the fianchetto very well. It requires an extra move to set up (i.e., advancing the knight's pawn). It leaves holes. If the fianchettoed bishop takes a piece, it needs to go back to its hiding place, which requires yet another loss of tempo. And it's hard to protect the bishop from the opponent's bishop, if he threatens to exchange. Somewhere I read that you should only fianchetto when your play chess online…
