Against an engine? or with other people?

Options to explore
* Lichess (puzzles, online play, engine play)
* Chess.com (puzzles, online play, engine play) - also has lessons
* Droidfish (play specifically against stockfish - like the other apps, you can set the difficulty, time controls, etc)

wobbly will become famous soon enough
It's nice to pull off utter nonsense:


svoskitov - wobbly
lichess
traxler counter-gambit

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc3 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. Ng5 Bc5 5. Bxf7 Ke7 6. Bb3 d5 7. exd5 Bxf2+ 8.Kxf2 Ng4+ 9. Kg1 Nd4 10. Qf1 Rf8 11. Nf3 c6 12. dxc6 Qb6 13. Resigns

Apparently it's now mate in 7.

I was looking through the game database on lichess after a game and saw an interesting move that occurred in 3 games. All players involved were rated over 1600.

1. e4 e5 2. Nc3 Nf6 3. f4 d5 4. fxe5 Nxe4 5. Qf3 Bc5 6. Nxe4 dxe4 7. Qxe4 Qh4+

Twice white played 8. g6 and black went on to win. Only once did white take the free queen.
