Website Review   by:Sailesh

For most of us chess lovers, the main issue is the lack of time and good players to play with. Yes we can play with the computer. But that can be only so much fun. If the Computer is set at a high level it crushes us and if it is set at a low level , it plays like a zombie. So how does one solve both these problems and still enjoy playing chess.
The Answer is internet Chess. Well didn''''t we just talk about lack of time. Even if you play chess with somebody over the Internet , wont'''' that take an hour or so. No, not if you play the right kind of internet chess. Chessworld.net ( www.letsplaychess.com) is a site for correspondence internet chess. You do not have to play the whole game in one sitting. If you have got a few minutes a day or even a few minutes every couple of days, you can get a good chess game going. and You can play with Chess players all over the world. Currently I am playing a players in Romania Canada and Australia. It is so much fun, the interface is pretty straightforward. There is a Chessboard and a place for comments and some buttons for various things.
Now here is the best part . It is totally Free. You can play unlimited games without paying anything. Now there is a paid subscription also and it has some real tangible benefits , like you can rated games and tournaments and analyze your games. But there is never an obligation for it. You can continue free games as long as you want. Though at some point there does seem to be a yearning to see all your games rated to find out how strong you really are. But even the subscription is very reasonable ( about $ 20 / year). I was particularly impressed that actually this is a good site for beginners as well. You can literally learn as you play. You can challenge any player from a beginner rating to a grandmaster rating. Of Course you would want to stick to your level or slightly above. This is definitely one of the best websites to play chess.
