    Hi all, while browsing through Facebook, a friend invited me to following site:

    www.amateurchess.com

    Looks quite commercial in my opinion... do you guys know anything about them? Seems like those guys want to crush FIDE Crazy

    A shame; actually an amateur chess organisation wouldn't be a bad idea.
