Does anyone out there belong to Uchess? I LOVE that site and every game over two moves is rated, no matter what the time limits. The Web site the last week or so has said suspended. I hope they didn't go out of business, over 2,000 players world wide and free too.

Thanks Ketchup lover for trying. I just tried it again twice and both times, it still says suspended until further notice.

Have you been able to get on there the last week or so?

PS-My wife got me a t=shirt, bright red, that says "Everything goes better with ketchup" 😀🙂🙂😀

Mustard is the king of condiments.

You can play blitz here. Same interface as uchess. Same owners. It is unrated here though.

Appreciate the info, but quick chess (blitz) doesn't apply to ratings, so no fun, except for practice.

This site seems to have higher ratings, as I had never beaten a l600 or l700 rated player until I played blitz here, so suspect that the rating on this site might be inflated (Of course, that might be the reason people wait l to 3 days here to respond to moves or check with internet or friend help)

Appreciate the offer of chess.com, but games are even slower there, one move per day, etc.

When you go there, look for the 'play live' button, it goes to the blitz site.

It sets up a game going on in real time, usually with a couple of 2200 players and then there is a 'start game' button that puts you in que and they pit you against a window of +/- 200 points of your own rating and the games start up pretty fast, a few seconds at most usually. You can set up the time you want to play, I usually use 3 minute games. I usually clock in around 1500 points there.
