  Sneaky: I like freechess.org (FICS) ... you have to download software to use it properly but it attracts a large number of mostly strong players. Even the occasional GM.

(By the way, you'll probably get more answers to that question if you move it to the kibitzer's cafe (http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...) instead of the French, Tarrasch page!)

  Robin01: 1.e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nd2 c5 4. Ngf3 Nd7?! -- Black's fourth move seems wrong. How can white take advantage of this? Perhaps there is not any way. Normally black's knight goes to c6. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.
