    Thanks, thanks , thanks!


  2. Hey Nice Site. Anyways just thought ide give a few chess tips. 1. Choose an opening thats solid. One that offers opportunity for you. 2. Aim for a mid game position that is better for you. One where you can exploit the best of your talent. 3. If possible aim for a continuation to your attacks. This keeps the pressure on your opponent. I used this tip successfully my self for year.and still use them.
