  1. hi guys well just wondering how many chess masters we have in igt
    hmm if u think that chess is a boring game for dumb people
    thats what i discovered last year n have improving my playing
    techniques continously
    A really nice interesting mentally beneficial game i recc u to play

    the aim of the game is simple: protect ur king
    ie avoid being checkmate

    so if chess= greek here's a starting help i found in earthgaming chess
    n was really useful when i started
    to really learn the game just play again n again n u will c the difference
    n i think it helps to improve ur reasoning n IQ so guys...............

    The Rook can move in a straight line either horizontally
    or vertically (provided it's path is not blocked).

    The Knight is special for two reasons. One, it moves in
    an "L" shaped pattern - 2 up & 1 over, 2 over & 1 up, etc
    . Two, it does not actually traverse the entire "L" shape
    , but jumps from it's current square to it's destination
    square without touching any of the squares in between.
    This means that it can "jump" over other pieces along that

    The Bishop can move any number of squares diagonally in
    one direction (provided it's path is not blocked). One
    important note is that the Bishop can only land on the
    same colour of square that it began on. For example, if the
    Bishop started it's turn on a black square it must end it'sQuare.
    Because of this restriction you have one Bishop starting
    on a white square ("white-square" Bishop) and one Bishop
    starting on a dark square ("dark-square" Bishop).

    A Pawn can only be moved forwards and can only capture
    an opponent's piece diagonally. When you first move a
    Pawn you have the option of moving it forward 1 or 2
    squares, but after that you can only move it forward
    one square at a time.

    When capturing an opponent's piece you can only capture
    a piece that is diagonally ahead of you by one square.
    En Passant, however, twist this under special circumstances.

    If a pawn makes it to your opponent's side of the board the pawn
    is "promoted" in rank to that of another piece - Queen , Rook , Bishop , or Knight . Usually you would make it a Queen since she is the most powerful piece.

    think thats was useful try to learn it n play u'll c the diff
    i downloaded one from www.pawnchess.com n that game is really a nice one

    thats actually the beginning of chess learning coz there r numerous more techniques
    u will learn by playing

    hope to c some IGT folks in those online chess playing corners some day
    till then

  7. Subhro

    Subhro Argentina lost :"(

    he he.. nice qs... i got a nice answer.. coz he felt like postin.. :)

    btw.. i can play chess too.. won thrice in school & once in college...
    i'll give u 1 tip..

    the game is spread into 3 stages..
    1. Openin game
    2. Middle Game
    3. End Game

    The frst rule is to develop ur pieces (Bishop,Knights, pawns) as quickly as possible and take control of the centre.. try not 2 move ur queen too much at the beginnin that will leave ur pieces underdeveloped & cramp ur position ...

    thats all for today (frm an amateur).............. until the mods decide 2 close this thrd :p:
  8. @jayswami cant guitaist play chesss????
    @subro thats the answ i would given
    yeah its vital to control the 4 central squares i think to really b able to kill ur opponent
