    I have played live chess(time control range 2-20min) mostly on playchess.com and chess.com. I like the former more than chess.com(very slow). Any other place to try out?

    ICC, FICS, www.chesshere.com

    ICC is likely the best out of that lot.

    www.pogo.co.uk

    I must admit, I've stopped playing chess on there due to constant abuse. Not only directed at me, but the general forum was awash with it. I still play other games; pool, crib, poker etc.

    I once opened with 1..c4 and was immediately accused of being an engine user. Some of the ****holes on there deliberately try to goad you into resigning in order to get the points. On balance, I've met some good people too, so I'd say give it a try and make your own judgement.

    i play on chesscube.com
    Has an easy interface, good teaching videos and a lot of social options but some aspects they added for aesthetic wasnt necessary.
    Still a great site.

    FICS with babaschess interface if you're on windows. FICS and raptor if your on anything besides windows.

    ICC is good if you want a paysite and can deal with their interface.

    Try a few nonse replies to irk them

    Opponent : You open c4 you must be an engine user

    You : Hello, how is life on Pluto?

    Opponent : Life on Pluto, what are you on about?

    You : Oh sorry, I didn't realise you had moved to Uranus

    Opponent :You are a nutter and a bluddy cheat

    You Your 19 year old daughter never complained last night, you do realise that in 3 moves you will be checkmated

    Opponent :Whaat??????????

    You : Two more moves, it is not looking good for you, I am sorry the game is over so quick, I thought you would have been better. Maybe you should try snakes and ladders

    Opponent :F*** you, you lousy cheat

    You : One more move. Can you see it yet?

    Opponent :F*** you, you lousy cheat RESIGNS GAME

    The only site i've tried is FICS with Babas interface. I'm still a couple of games short of losing my provisional rating, but I have yet to encounter a rude player. I really like the interface though, you can easily set up the board and pieces to your liking.
