I've recently gotten back into chess and was interested to see if anyone else here studies or plays chess on their Z, as well as if there's any interesting software--commercial or otherwise--that people would recommend. I currently have Knights installed and play once in a while, but was interested to find ouf it there were any good chess databases that are available or would be possible to port.

knights is far far far too weak.
the java chess is a joke.
gnuschess + xboard / qboard is worthy.
ALso, eboard w/ pdaxrom would be great.
ps: icc client? too bad blitzen doesn't run.

I'm a little confused as you can swap in engines for Knights (the version I installed has both Phalanx and Gnuchess). I'm not a big fan of the interface for knights though; I'll look into qboard though, thanks!
I've been more curious about chess databases than game playing on the go lately but haven't yet found a good program for studying games.
