    e4 b6
    d4 e6
    Nf3 Na6
    a3 Nb8
    Bc4 d5
    exd5 exd5
    Qe2 Kd7
    Bxd5 Nc6
    Bxf7 Nxd4
    Nxd4 Kd6
    Bf4 Kd7

    I used to play for my county, suffolk mens' team when i was 16. My rating was around 1700-1800. Haven't played much in the last 2-3 years though, but would love to start again.

    I'll probably join the uni chess team in sept.

    I have just noticed something, We don't have a chess club, so I thought I would make one.
    Sure, but do you actually intend to organise a tournament online? cuz that would be good. Not that I'd have a shot at making it past the second round lol. Not quite as good as my brother and father

    There are several versions out there. I think yahoo has one. But the problem would be in getting people online at the same time to play.

    If you play OTB matches/tournaments, you won't see many sadly

    Oh btw, the cheating on yahoo, ppl put your moves into fritz/junior/chessmaster/whatever and it tells them where to move. Only works in long games obviously, so challenge them to speed chess and if they're terrible compared to slow play, you know the truth hehe. There are also programs which connect to certain chess servers and play for you.
    That's why I pay to use ICC, cuz they ban anyone who doesn't declare they are using a program, plus the players are good lol.
    I think if we're all gonna have a tourn, it will have to be something like yahoo though so that we can all use it.
