@wandeljw,


Chai, you seem to have an interest. Have you ever played a game? If so, perhaps you'd be interested in playing one of us here.

I'm a huge fan of the Polgar sisters. I'd like to see more women playing chess.

@Reyn,
Ahh ... a classic Spanish Opening .... also known as the "Ruy Lopez."

Will wandeljw employ a Smyslov Defense? I'm thinking Deep Blue v. Garry Kasparov ...1997.

Let's watch ....

Reyn, all I know about chess is the various directions the pieces can move. I'd lose so quickly if I played, so I watching what you two are doing.

@wandeljw,
Good morning to all!



Wandel: Have you played correspondence chess before?

Tico & Chai: It's nice to know that there is an audience interested here at A2K that like to watch chess games!

Solip: You're welcome to watch this game, but if you would like to play your own game, you'll need to start a separate thread, please. I would create a thread saying, "Looking for a chess opponent". I'm sure someone will come by.

@Reyn,


Hi, Reyn! I have never played correspondence chess. We sometimes have chess tournaments at work. Players are required to notate each game. Algebraic notation is what I always use.

I also play my nine year old daughter at home.

@wandeljw,
Also watching. I haven't played since the seventies, and then only to learn enough to follow the Fisher Spassky games. I forget every bit of it, but will use this as a chance to learn a bit. Right now I know less than Chai.

Carry on...

@ossobuco,
I recommend that Chai and Osso learn algebraic chess notation. Then the two of you will be able to use this "chess widget" as well.

@wandeljw,
http://www.logicalchess.com/info/reference/notation/n1.gif

Each square on the chess board has only one possible description in algebraic chess notation. From the point of view of the White pieces, the columns are "a" through "h". The rows are numbered "1" through "8". For example: "d1" describes the square currently occupied by the White queen. "d8" describes the square currently occupied by the Black queen.

@wandeljw,


Wandel: That sounds like a lot of fun, playing at work. Do you get to play on work time? (joking) Laughing I've played mostly correspondence chess, myself. I find that I don't do really well at "blitz".

Hello Osso and welcome! Wandel has laid out the algebraic notation clearly and a great idea to learn, if one wants to follow along. As we progress though, we may come across situations (mainly pieces like knights (N) and rooks (R)) where one side can move to the same square, and an extra character needs to be added for clarification.

In case some are not aware, FILES are the series of squares that run between the opposing sides, and RANKS are the squares that run from side to side of the board.
