    This may sound stupid, like walking into the lion's den, but I don't have anyone to play with.

    Would someone play me a game and actually "teach" me as we play (as opposed to just creaming me in the first 10 moves)?

    LOL! Sorry....

    I know just enough to really "suck". I'm good at showing/teaching folks the game but not really good at beating anyone with any skill.

    I could use a teacher. I'm currently stuck between 1000 and 1100. If I could get some unrated games, and constructive criticism afterwards, maybe I could do better.

    I challenged Savate and Daphnes to a game so we can try to improve you a bit. As you can see by my rating I am not that good but for now it will be probably be enough to explain you some of the principles of chess.

    If you want to accept the challenge we'll just go by the moves one by one and try to see why you made such moves and how they could be improved.

    If there is someone rated over 1600 that would lend me a hand in finding my own mistake it would be cool too

    1700 here, I don't mind doing a few teaching games....

    anyone interested, just send a challenge....

    I accepted Branc0's offer, as he was the first to message me. I'm good to go for now. Thanks.
