    What's your best rivalry on this site? My best one is probably User 705938. We're fairly evenly matched; I have won 5 of the 9 games with none drawn.

    Here's a win and a loss from the collection.

    It would be hard to say, I enjoy playing most everyone.

    To name just a few.

    I don't consider anyone here a true rival. I've had rivalries in the past at the chess club. To me it's hard to really have a rival unless I am face to face with the person, having to face their play and their presence and personality is much different than playing a position and a nickname. IMHO

    Maybe I'm weird, but I can sense some people's personalities in their moves...?

    But I hear ya - it's not exactly the same as an in-person rivalry. I came up with this one after going through my performance (http://www.playtheimmortalgame.com/myhome/myvs.php) and I selected an opponent close to my own size that I have played a lot of games against.
