    I checked out lichess for the first time in a little while, have to say I'm liking it. Nice clean interface, it looks good.
    Compared to chess.com and chess24.com, it has the advantage of making it easy to download your PGN and get basic analysis for free (the others both charge). One example of the basic analysis:

    Still took a bit of massaging the PGN to get it to play in the viewer properly.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    One of those Scandinavians I have played recently! Had completely forgotten how to play this funny Gambit, then all of a sudden memories of maybe 30+ years came back
    and although I didn't implement the proper theory (cauz I knew shit all about it,) it was quite enough to bamboozle my opponent at the Caulfield Artists' Allegro (13'2)

    My opponent got a bit careless here in an equal ending.

    Interesting little game. Somehow I thought I had won a pawn in the middlegame, and by the time I realised a few moves later that I hadn't, there was an attack upon me. Managed to get to a double rook endgame where both sides had connected passed pawns. No idea who should have won, but I guess I made the better use of my chances.
