Let’s play a nice game of chess at Lichess.
In my effort to keep my brain warmed up for poker, and hopefully be able to win a game of chess at the local café now and then, I signed up for online chess at Lichess, which is a popular free and open source chess server, that is driven by volunteers and donations. No sign-up needed. No advertisements. You can play chess on the homepage or in the smartphone app.
How to start a new game of chess.
I can prepare a new game of chess and share it via a link. The moment, that you click the link, the game is started and we can play. No sign-up needed. No advertisements. Just pure chess. You can also sign-up and we can create a new game from within Lichess. The benefits of that is, that you can review your played games, get tips for improvements and learn more about chess in general.

Feel free to visit my profile, follow me (for friendship) and challenge me for a nice game of chess. I am registered as Micski. I have not played chess since my childhood, so I would estimate my knowledge of chess openings and moves to be at the lower rank. I wrote a little introduction to Lichess and an introduction to chess openings.
