Playing chess in the club continues via email.

Some of the players in the club uses the graphical format below to receive their opponents' moves. Others use plain text messages, others use PGN.

This page is for those who use the html message format, instead of plain text and PGN. (These settings can be changed anytime by the players). For players using the html format, the server generates the changed game diagram after each move in html format.
Using an html compliant email client or web service is necessary to use this feature. All the modern email clients support displaying standard html messages. Players who use an email client that doesn't support html message format won't be able to use this feature. They receive their opponents' moves, or whole games in plain text or in PGN format instead of the graphical boards. They may need a different software to display the boards. For example ECTool is a right software for them.

Players can choose which piece set they want to use in their graphical boards generated by the chess server.

Wilhelm Steinitz

SteinitzBorn in 1836 in Prague, world champion between 1866 and 1894.
He laid down the base of positional game, therefore he is known as the founder of the modern chess. No doubt, Steinitz has opened a new chapter in the history of the game. Because of his careness, efforts for the economical play, the great attackers of his age (Chigorin, Gunsberg) have lost in order. His approach was not appreciated by the age he lived in. Players didn't take too much care of the pawn, the structure of the game, opposing to Steinitz, who probably took too much care of these.
On the first official world championship, in 1886 in New York and in St. Luis, Steinitz played 10:5 with 5 draws against the Polish Johannes Hermann Zukertort. He defended his title against Isidor Gunsberg, and twice against Mihail Chigorin too. Then lost it in 1894 against Emanuel Lasker in the final.
Finished his life in 1900 in New York in a mental hospital.
