Hello i just wanted to put down some basics to get you on your way. If you think you are going to like chess and make it a part of your life this is for you. You are going to need a good site for tournament info. i suggest cajunchess.com or you can type in a search engine upcoming tournaments then your state. Also now a day you need a United States Chess Federation membership to get into most tournys in the usa. so i will save you the troble of having to get one at the last min. the number for uscf is (800) 388-5464
they will hook you up! so good luck with the chess world out there and most of all enjoy your self

also there is a great site to go play chess at(my personal favorite) www.msn.com

You are welcome Rahul. :)

Jippii can be used sometimes....but it would have to be organised very well.
You admin guys should set something up. :P

We are planning to make an online playing system right here on chesskit, it should be completed by the end of the year, or January or next year. :)
