    Looking to learn this wonderful game, to get better at its subtleties. I recently chose to be the chess moderator for my school, thus I feel I should get a little better.

    If anyone would like to help me in this quest, do join me in an open invite game or otherwise. All levels are welcome (if you can tolerate my inexperience)

    I just started a game with OOC92 for teaching purposes. I'm getting OOC92 to explain the plan behind each move, and I'm doing the same. When we're done, I'll post the game here and both of us can get some additional pointers.

    Having said that, is there anyone higher rated that would mind playing me (maybe a two game set, playing both sides of the board) with the same idea in mind? I'm rated at 1629 currently, so someone between 1700 and 1900 is probably an ideal candidate.

    I can do this for you!

    just create a board... unrated maybe, so that we can feel completely free (to do crap).

    Sweet! Thanks, done.

    (Also thanks to MetBierOp, I'm playing two games against him/her as well)
