    i decided i wanted some mindless fun tonight, and for some stupid reason i decided "mindless" meant chess. so i actually signed up on this site and played against the computer several times, and now i think i'm ready for an opponent who isn't an algorithm designed to make beginner chess players feel good about themselves.

    so any current chessers, i'm on chess.com as chessiemacchessface (clearly i was not the first to attempt the obvious username either, i had to go through a few spellings before i found one that wasn't taken).

    I first became interested in chess back in the 1980s while watching a series of matches between Anatoly Karpov and Garry Kasparov on PBS.

    I didn't know the game very well but I couldn't take my eyes off the TV set.

    I started playing with my friends and while I was never all that good, I discovered I was very good at watching other people play and anticipating their moves.

    Still my interest never waivered and there was a brief resurgent in the 1990s with the movie Searching for Bobby Fischer (1993) and the series of matches between Garry Kasparov and the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue.

    Today I still enjoy watching youtube videos from Washington Square Park with trash talking 8, 9, and 10 year old's taking on street hustlers and GMs

    I just wanted to bump this thread and remind everyone that a couple of us play and more of you should download the app and play, too.

    Games can be set to have a five day time limit on moves so not having time is a bad excuse - you don't have to sit down and play a game start to finish, you can just make a move whenever you have a moment.
