Interesting chess sites on the Net
This is my personal choice of sites, so no pretence of

"Top 100 chess sites"
These sites may or may not charge a fee. Normally they have at least a
free section with games, info etc..
Magazines & newspaper columns
Organizations and clubs
Here you can play over the Net. They are accessible via telnet (use
port 5000 if not otherwise specified).
Further information is available. Your results will be better if
you use a graphic interface, I found that
xboard is not bad... and it's freeware!
