Does anyone remember the Kasparov Club chess site, I was active there in the early 2000s. Suddenly it went down without much notice. It was a great site with a ticking clock and war-room graphics.
I played there, and a lot of other places now defunct.
It was a good site IMO. Did Gary Kasparov sponsor it, they never charged anything to me?
I think he just lent his name. I played for free. I don't recall if there were premium memberships. Long before that, around 1996, there was a chess site put up by Chessmaster itself. I was a wonderful site with lovely graphics, but around 1997-8, it changed into a multigame site and everything went downhill from there.
It went down in 2004 if I remember?
