    Are you playing the modern version? You have to call, "Debit or Credit" mate because chess doesn't take checks anymore.

    and stop playing speed chess. games should be at least 45 minutes for each side
    - tournment games are longer

    I am around 1650 life time,, I quit playing because kids nimble minds were beating me.
    And that damn speed chess - watch the movie "searching for Bobby Fischer" and you'll see it's to be avoided

    n o traps in chess. everything is open and in front of you.. There are only patzer and high quality moves
    of course different possibilities you think of during the game. your opponent is doing the same

    you have to study, you need to play thru some master games. there are all kinds of games stored you can clik and play. Try and see what they are doing by breaking it down to the opening, midgame and end game

    As your chess skill progress you will learn about setting and springing traps.

    And there are what appear to be bad moves to lure your opponent into making a bad move.
