"CHESS" - A game for all who so choose to lock into battle. A war; of will & wit that's fought on a true mine field of 64 alternating black and white colored squares.;Dark & Light, Slow and Fast, Yen & Yang. A confrontation between two; where speed and a quick hand can deal devastation on one hand, and concentration and deep thinking can be ever bit as deadly on the other.

Hello there; if your reading this; I welcome you too I.C. The is my home Chess site; and I highly recommend it; it is by far the best I've come across.

hope to see across the board; and I wish you good luck,good games; and if you can;......tell someone about InstantChess.com



This I borrow from a friend's page;
"A winning strategy in Chess often involves balancing several considerations against each other. Moves that maximize immediate material gain might expose a vulnerability or yield a difficult position as the game progresses. A profitable move would be one that both furthers you attack and solidifies your defense."

“A win by an unsound combination, however showy, fills me with artistic horror.”’(The great Steinitz)

"I play honestly and I play to win. If I lose, I take my medicine." -Bobby Fischer-
"All that matters on the chessboard is good moves."
Bobby Fischer
"I felt that chess... is a science in the form of a game... I consider myself a scientist. I wanted to be treated like a scientist."
Bobby Fischer
"I like the moment when I break a man's ego."
Bobby Fischer
