    I love to play...but I suck.

    No, really...if I beat a 1200, I feel pretty good about it.

    I have Chessmaster 9000 and a received a new travel chess set for Christmas, so perhaps my play will improve.

    How about you?

    I played it a lot in the Army, especially in N. Ireland. But my wife prefers poker, so I don't play nearly as much as I used to.

    There's a chess thread around somewhere.

    I haven't played in quite a while. Learned as a kid but really polished my skills with a very good opponent in college.

    I am not that good, but I do enjoy playing it.

    Yes, but I'm bad at it and I haven't played in years. Maybe I should start again.

    I had the original Chessmaster program in the 80s.

    I know the basic moves of the pieces but I very seldom play chess cause it just sucks.
