Hi, Have you tried chess on Zapak site. It is the best place to play chess online. It is really good and it is like a 3D game. It is dynamically updated and it is like a real play. try it.

Hello friend, If you have money, then playchess.com is the best chess site to play or analyse games. You can also play there for free, but your ratings will be deleted after every 30 days and you will have to make a new ID again. I got bored with this so left that site. Currently I play on www.freechess.org. It has got really good players. The downside is that it does not support the feature of chatting or inviting a particular user to play against you. You can not socialise and make friends there. It is purely for playing chess. If you like to have all the features, like chatting, playing games, making friends, viewing other people's games and all then check out www.chesscube.com. They have good players and they provide you with free videos by which you can improve your game a lot. Hope I helped, thanks

I used to play chess on Yahoo! Games and always enjoyed it. I haven't played online recently, but I'd like to get back to it sometime soon...especially since I don't have anyone to play with regularly in real life anymore. Chess on myLot would be quite a branch out for this site, but I'd definitely give it a try. Maybe we could get paid a penny for every game we win here!

Hi Echo....Thanks for your post...Playing chess online can be fun..sometimes when dont get to do something...And I do feel sometimes mylot discussions get boring and it is then games section can be useful to stay in the site and play with other members.And as you said..we can keep earning those pennies as well...probably for every move...

I used to play online chess on kasparov.com before 5 years. I liked the site very much. Then the site closed. I played in echess.co.za as well. But this is not online. But email chess. I am also looking for a good site to play online chess

well i'm a big chess addict and i've tried many sites for playing chess. earlier i used to play realtime on yahoo games but now i prefer correspondance chess because i think it helps more to develop u as a player because u can analyze all the moves before actually moving. and as far as sites for correspondance chess are concerned, gameknot.com is the best among the sites on which i've played. it provides grand tournaments, mini-tournaments, team matches and league matches (league matches only for premium payers). and gameknot.com is adding more and more features to the site very rapidly. i'm a premium member on that site and currently i'm playing 60+ games simultaneously on it. you must check that site.

Hi Elsoft12! I play chess online in YahooGames. I play against people all over the world, different nationalities, and I can also chat with them while playing. Maybe we can play together sometimes. Just give me a message. YahooChess also has a rating based on your win loss record. The more you win, the higher your rating will be. Oh yes, I hope there would be a chess game here in myLot in the future. That would be an added excitement. Have a nice day!

I used to play chess online but then I suddenly became bored with it! I don't know of any site as yet that pays money when you win a chess tournament. I'm sure that there is something out there in relation to this. I only joined a free chess site and it was good while it lasted but then I became tired of it. I'm not too keen on the idea of My Lot starting a games section! I'm happy with the way things are going at the present time. Good luck with your own chess endeavours though! Andrew

Hi Andrew..Thanks for your view.Sometimes when one keeps doing the activity..one tends to lose interest..But if you keep facing challenges..that will keep the activity interesting and more dynamic..be it chess or anything else...I know..playing chess online we do more for the joy of playing someone else in the other part of the world from your home.But I was refering to it in a social networking aspect..something mylot does...I havent used facebook,but it seems the site provides the option of playing games like chess,scrabble...I thought it would be a good idea.If mylot does so as well.
