I have not yet played any Grandmasters in chess. I want to play chess with Grandmasters because it make me a challenge. I have experience a chess tournament since I was in Grade 4. It was 9 round swiss. I only got 3 wins and failed to enter at 5 wins. How about you guys?

In chess.com, there are also GrandMaster members and they also do play with other members sometimes, so if you are lucky, you can also play with them. Chess.com is my favorite website to play chess. Please do a visit and see how good it is. Good day!

I also am a member of chess.com and it's a great chess website. My username is ChessOptimist, what is yours Harold? Maybe we played there already and didn't know it. The site I have encountered with the most grandmasters, including International masters and Fide masters is in Internet Chess Club or ICC. There are hundreds of grandmasters you could meet and play there, but you needed to be an upgraded member to be able to have your own username, meaning you need to pay at least the 3 months fee which is the shortest membership. I teach chess online and I still have chess students from America. Here is my chess blog: http://learnchessbychessoptimist.blogspot.com/2012/11/learn-chess-online-by-chessoptimist.html

That was such a good score, ajith. I can imagine you're a very good player who have other priorities than playing chess. You could probably play online chess if you have some time.

I also like chess.com a lot because you don't need to download anything. Just create a free account and have your username and you're ready to play. I also play and teach chess on Babaschess.com and it's similar to Internet Chess Club, although I would say ICC is so much better with it's features and with the fact the so many titled and highly rated players gather on this site. I am currently not an active member there, but when I was I have collected more than a hundred wins against these titled players including grandmasters, international masters and fide masters and used to save them in my library list. I have to admit that I lose more often than win, maybe with a rate of only about 25% wins and 75% loss.

To be able to play chess with a Grandmaster, specially in on-the-board game, is a privilege. One can learn a lot from such a great opponent. If you are that good, then you should seek the opportunity to do so. If not that much, playing with a Grandmaster can be demoralizing also because he can punish you. Chess.com is a good place to measure your capabilities against various formidable opponents.

I have played with Fide Masters before. I managed to survive 30 moves before I resigned! My rating in USCF is 1750. I have also managed to beat a USCF life master in a very close game. I think the reason he lost was because he messed up under time pressure and missed a winning line after I sacrificed a bishop. I have never played with a grandmaster though, and like you, I wish I could.

I used to love playing chess. I have not played that in such a long time now. I think I forgot most of the rules. I have it on my computer, maybe I should brush up on it again. If you're that good at chess, then you should play a grandmaster. You can learn a lot from them.

It will be a great honor and privilege if I am given a chance to play chess with a grandmaster even in a simultaneous exhibition games. I won second place during my youth in our local barangay tournament. It's been a long time since I play competitive chess. Now I settle to play chess sometimes on my computers. Have a pleasant day ahead of you!
