    Hi Linda,

    It looks like you currently have all 6 of your game slots occupied, but when you have a spot free, you can place a game invitation in the "open invites" section, and limit access to it to players who are under 1000.

    Good luck in your journey!

    A side note, if you want to improve your play I highly recommend the program Chessmaster. I believe the latest is the 10th addition, but any of the Chessmaster programs are spectacular for brand new beginners through intermediate players.

    The newest version of chessmaster is the grandmaster edition. Personally, I find the Waitzkin academy a little lacking, but I haven't gotten to the endgame section yet so I'll save my final judgment until then.

    I thought the latest version was "I'm Josh Waitzkin and chess got hard when my natural ability ran into other players with the same natural talent so I quit chess instead of working harder to be at the top, now I do stupid martial arts and I am really skinny and lame"

    I could be wrong though...Not likely.

    Ouch! Why so harsh on the guy?

    BTW, have you played it on the highest possible level "Chessmaster"?

    Holy crap how long does it take for it to make a move? I literally have gotten too impatient to find out.
