I recently saw this video

I realized that I never learned how to play chess. Nobody in my family plays it anymore so I never bothered to learn. But after reading so many amazing stories about this game I really felt urge to learn it and get decent at it.
Couple of days ago I started playing regularly on lichess; I'm still really bad but it has been lots of fun so far.

Do you have any interesting stories about chess? Any tips for beginner like me?
Lets have a thread about comfiest game ever.


Don't have any tips, but I'm kinda one step behind you. Been getting bored of video games the past years and almost never play, but been having cravings for something to replace it with, and chess seems like it could be it. Also would be a good way to meet new people, video games don't have that aspect mostly.

Have seen this recommended, free (legal/official) online version of a dudes books:
seemed good when I gave it a quick lookover, just haven't been motivated enough to give it the needed real effort yet.


thonkiest game ever


Yeah we are pretty much in same situation
I will definitely look at it

Also not sure is it just me or it's common among beginners but I play most of the game really good and I am in wining position but then I just throw it the whole game with one stupid move


chess competitions are just analog esports
like medieval league of legends


Except LoL will never be as complete as chess

Lichess is great web server if you're looking for matches, also has a few tutorials and learning resources too.

Go is worth looking into too - since there's so many possibilities in any particular board-state there's much less memorizing openings and strategies; it's more about good pattern recognition.

I never really learned to play, but I have this old chess board I bought at a flea market as a teen. The angles on the pieces are so sharp so it's kinda difficult to catch them on picture, looks better IRL.
Figure maybe I should start to learn to get some use out of it.

No, this is chess


GO away. Haha.


Hey Chessbros, I'm more of a Mahjong player but if you're at all intersted about computer chess the new Down the Rabbit Hole is about Deep Blue and the matches against Kasparov: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwF229U2ba8
Long watch but well worth it.

Rxh7+ Kxh7 Rh4+ Nh6 Rxh6#

Rxg7 Bxg7 Qxd6
Tried Qh5 Kg7 but I don't think that's a mating line. Rxg7 works because it threatens mate so bishop must take g7 and you can take a queen and pawn for a rook

I think you got it

Favourite position ever for me. Can't remember which game it was from, so if someone does, please tell me. It's so satisfying once you manage to solve this, even thouhg the answer is fairly simple.

wow :o

if i haven't missed anything silly i think the only line is to sacrifice every single piece to knock the queen off of the diagonal or interfere with its connection to the bishop and mate with the a pawn
Qxb4+ Bxb4; Rd2 Qxd2; Kc2+ Qxc2; axb4#
It's crazy how robust the attack is with so many options from white and such crazy moves!
