    Next move suggestion - based on previous games played by the player to move.

    It only needs a little whizzy background programme thing that looks at my previous games, and suggests my preferred move (based on analysing games where the same opening line has been played before).

    This would only work through openings I reckon, but could save players thinking through their opening lines, as the site would recognise and suggest the appropriate move.

    The player could then either click to accept this move, or make a move and submit as normal.

    Could you program gambit openings so you don't have to refer to databases, etc...? I'd also like to see the Analyze Games function show possible moves with knights, bishops, etc... this would help to keep you from missing an obvious move(s).

    Good idea, but there should also be the option to automatically accept that move, for players who don't want to try new moves anyway. That also has the advantage that you don't have to be online to make moves, very helpful if you are on vacation.

    Especially if a not-so-obvious checkmate lurks there somewhere.
    After clicking on submit move, the system could take you back to the board and print something like 'Are you sure you didn't mean to move the knight THERE?'

    I think we should be able to pay for in game coaching by David Tebb. You can use his assistance only once or twice per game to eviscerate your opponent.

    But once the David Tebb option is used, then both players get access to the advice.

    Is this pay-per-use? David should be renumerated for his work.

    I'd rather this was flipped around... players get to bid to give advice to players seeking it. The player seeking advice chooses the highest bid, or a lesser bid if they feel the advice will be of better quality.
