    What are some other good (free!) online chess sites? I have this one and just discovered GameKnot. Any other good ones worth visiting? (Also use Yahoo games, but I don't care much for the people that play there).

    i used to play a lot on yahoo but some of the players on there are just oustanding, not trying to be negative, but the word cheating springs to mind

    Of those you've mentioned, this one is far and away the best.

    Calling yahoo a hess site stretches the langiage beyond meaning. See http://www.edcollins.com/chess/yahoo-vs-servers.htm

    For RHP, GK, and others, look at http://www.angelfire.com/poetry/wulebgr/corr.htm
