I've played several games here at RHP in the last few months, as well as ICCF and USCF back in the 80's and 90's. I think they are all pretty good, but was wondering if anyone here can tell me their current organization preferences, and why they favor their choice over the others. I'm considering getting back into correspondence chess a bit deeper after about 20 years of relative inactivity, but a lot has changed on the chess scene in the last 2 decades. and want to make a good choice. Any suggestions would be welcome.
Back in the late 90's I grew tired of chess, and thought I would never play in tournaments again, so I sold my chess books, clock, and kept only my old wooden set and vinyl roll up board. So, do I still need chess books, or is all of this info now on the internet? Any ideas in this area would be helpful as well.
