Father taught me to play when I was 11 years old. Love the game. Never read but one book about chess. That's why I'm still such a novice. Every once in a while I win a game!! During the 70's when Fisher/Spasky was playing that famous match, my interest was rekindled. Chess.com is perfect for me. I now have lots of opponents to match wits with. My best game was when I beat my father for the first time. He was so proud of me you'd think he just beat a GM!! Like I said, Dad taught me to play when I was 11. I was 30 something when I finally beat him. Dad's gone now. Needless to say, I dearly miss the matches we had. I went many years without playing because I had no opponents to speak of. Chess.com is perfect. I have played every day since discovering the site.
Could someone out there please answer one question? When one plays live chess, one of the options is 5/2. I figured the 5 gives five minutes of playing time. What does the '2' mean??
