  • what is Cor. chess? I have learnt what OTB means from this discussion but can't find cor chess? I don't know how I would cope with an actual real game of chess with a real person :-

  • I focus on OTB, so it's a tool for me, but many members don't play OTB (or even live chess) - for them it is a game and rightfully so!

  • cookie3, I think it is not a tool for everyone, for others it's a game.

    by ccssii 2 weeks ago

  • like i said, its only a tool and only as useful as the person using the tool.

  • You're right ccssi but it demands an iron will and homeopathic dose. The competitive aspect easily takes over in Cor.Chess. Vote Chess is another story, I see it more like a place to share and to discuss. Databases are good food for thoughts but of course shouldn't be followed blindly.
