Bad Chess

This would be a good moment to point those of you (like me) who want to improve their chess game to itsyourturn, which has furnished me with people from around the world to play against. The best thing (and the most irritating) about this site is that it is turn based. This makes it the equivalent of postal chess. Very slow sometimes but at least without the chances for huge confusion when a letter was lost in the post.

The good thing about this way of playing is the massive breaks you can take so you can (theoretically) examine the board position and think about strategy. This never happens of course. Most times you just forget you were playing and log back on like a desperate Ebay bidder, trying to beat the deadline.

Anyway, go visit the site and sign up for a game. You might end up playing me (for a very long time).
