Website help

We hope this website is as easy to use as possible and causes you no trouble.  Let us know if not.

The main thing to notice is that several of the games and positions are available as Portable Game Notation (PGN) files, which can be downloaded from the PGN block provided on every page and played through offline using a chess database or PGN viewer. In the PGN block there is also a link for you to view the games in a web page, no downloads required.

If you need help with the chess itself, there are pages which explain the rules, how to read and write chess games, chess symbols and some basic advice about the opening, middlegame and endgame. There is also a guide to levels, ratings and grades.

Chess Quotes

" I have also heard that GM Oscar Panno said that -whenever you have to make a rook move and both rooks are available for said move- you should evaluate which rook to move and, once you have made up your mind... MOVE THE OTHER ONE!!! "
— Oscar PANNO (via PEDRO HEGOBURU)
