    As a matter of interest, has anyone played a woman yet? I've played 75 games so far (with 16 ongoing) and all of my opponents have been male. I know chess is a male-dominated activity but I'm surprised it's that dominant.

      I am still learning. @maffew has been very kind and taught me, while playing a few games. Thank you @maffew!

      I have had a few games against similar, lower rated players. I am really enjoying it and doing the tactics most days to try and improve.

      Pleased to hear it.

      The only reason that I remarked on it is that I've been playing a couple of people with female user names but when I looked at their profile, saw they're blokes. It would be great to have more female players.

      One of our more enthusiastic players is a female. Goes by the pseudonym battleman. You have let her win though or she whines a lot
