Anyone here into Chess?

Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone here was into chess and wanted to play a game sometime. A friend of mine really got me into it recently. Tired of playing the computer though.

Chess.com is a decent site for it. Started using it yesterday and seems good enough.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

I use to play a lot when I was younger. I haven't played in years but I really enjoy chess.

I have a fancy glass chess set I got years ago.

I play sometimes but not regularly. My interest has fallen over the years.

Chess.com is a very good site and highly competitive. Havn't played on it for awhile as I've been busy. In fact I forgot my username. Will play for $5 for fun...heh...heh.

Loved that game when I was younger, but now time is an issue.

I have never played against anyone online and it's been years now since I have played. I would probably get owned on a chess site lol

I played all of the time when I was a kid. Used to be pretty decent at it. I play from time to time but I am pretty terrible these days.

I used to be in the chess club at my school. Wasn't really good or anything, just had one trick and only two or three people there realized it and were prepared for it.

I used to thrash all my friends at chess when I was younger, thought I was great.

Then quite randomly, one day the guy across road offered me a game and few shots of nice Whiskey.

He thrashed me in about 10 moves. Turns out he was a national champion! The things you don't know about your neighbours eh?

Yeah, he pretty much taught me that I suck at chess.
