I sometimes find myself using a Mac rather than my usual pc and I was wondering if there is a useful list of chess software available for the Mac anywhere (commercial and/or freeware).

Most of the results from a google search seem to be rather out-dated... :shock:

I use the Shredder Chess app on my iPhone, and I think it's excellent. There is a free 'lite' version that you can try out first. The paid version is here (these are US store links, but it's available in other markets too). I also use the app to play correspondence games, and they are work...

No problem. I sometimes find it difficult to find what I need in the program's help files too, but I remember this question being asked before so I knew it was in there somewhere! :)

Interesting question! I was sure it wasn't legal and the exact wording of the official rules backs that up. (2) Castling is prevented temporarily: 1. if the square on which the king stands, or the square which it must cross, or the square which it is to occupy, is attacked by one or more of the oppo...

An amazing +5 score by Nakamura to win ahead of Anand - wow! Kudos to Nakmaura on a fantastic result.

The real question is: will this be the first of many successes for the American, or will it mark a high point that he will never equal again???

I guess that Lasker's and Larsen's definition of a 'bad' move would differ greatly from mine! My bad moves tend to be losing material by force with no compensation! :oops: I think I understand what they mean though. Sometimes, to unsettle the position and create dynamic chances (especially at the to...

There is a book called 'The Development of Chess Style' which tries to do something similar to what is described. It was originally by Max Euwe and the English GM John Nunn updated it for Batsford in 1997.

There is review here.

The great traditional opening to the chess year is underway in Wijk Aan Zee. Any predictions for a winner in the A group?

Nakmuara got off to a great start in round one, but find it hard to see the winner coming from outside the big four of Anand, Carlsen, Aronian and Kramnik.

Are people put off by having to register? I use several email addresses for different purposes so that I don't risk getting spam to my personal email (always a concern).
