I'm a bit of a chess tragic, don't play very well but have always been fascinated by the game.

Last night watched the Documentary Bobby Fischer Against The World, well worth a look even if your not into the game. :)

I am a dreadful chess player and by contrast don't think I've ever won a game.   I once took it upon myself to learn to play chess against the computer so I could improve my skills.  The computer turned out to be our microwave oven and it still won!
