    Default Hello From Melbourne

    Hi Guys.

    I have an issue playing chess on my phone - so much so that it is starting to get annoying. The phone cheats! and any help I can get for beating my dad will be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Yes welcome!
    A good way to win is to get into a completely lost position then distract your opponent and swap sides

    I am from the Eastern suburbs. Quite a few Melbournians here I see.

    Hi AzzX

    Yes, for some reason most of our members are Victorians. I would almost go so far as to say that 'Ozchess - Australia's Chess Forum' is really 'VicChess - Victoria's Chess Forum' because the rest of the country seems to be lagging behind Victoria in terms of chess action!

    I know, kind of scary isn't it? Did you know that Box Hill claims to be the biggest chess club in Australia

    Hmm, not since MCC have had their campaign to increase membership.

    MCC is now probably back to their historical lead position.
    FReedom though Fischer-Random chess to enjoy the whole game.

    Thanks to Firegoat7's tireless work and devotion to building the game up. Hopefully those slouches in the other place take notice.

    Great job Dave!
