Anyone like Yahoo! Chess?

I just wrote my first real Visual C++ program. It lets you save your Yahoo! Chess game histories and replay the game on a chessboard. You can also try out different moves that could have taken place to review your strategy. I highly recommend it; it's better than any other I've found:

Do you mean on a actual chessboard? I mean one that is not online?

I personally don't play chess because it very confusing to me.

That was the best, wasn't it?
A little distracting from the game, if you're a serious player, but quite entertaining if you're not!
