Hi; I'm 74,live in southern California, and I'm trying to learn how to play chess. My son gave me Chessmaster8000 for my computer. I wonder if the rankings are real. I checkmated someone playing at 1000+, the next time I was clobbered by a girl; at 121.And I don't use alcohol or other drugs so I guess I would be considered consistent. Anyone?

Hawks: Is there any way we newcomers could find out why black lost? Out of time? Resigned? It's kind of frustrating when the King isn't even in check. Perhaps a simple R if resigned and OT if out of time. I love this site however everything can be improved. Thanks, Joe Hawks
