If the computer was capable of evaluating every line of play right to the end of the game, the evaluation would never change. Indeed, the evaluation of every move would be either "win", "lose" or "draw". This is essentially what happens in endgame tablebases.* If computers could do this for every position, every game against a computer would consist of the ...
I highly doubt that there exist one. If it would exist, it would be full of sandbaggers or engine players. There is no way to verify who exactly plays the game. You, or your Stockfish/Houdini/Rybka/.
So even if you are GM, you most probably will lose money.
My advice would be to use the adult site. I've had several students but never recommended a kid-friendly site to anyone older than 8 years old.
It would be good to know why exactly you want that membership for further advice:
If what you are looking for is a site where your daughter can play and get experience, then make an analysis of those games (no ...
Not a pay site, but FICS (free internet chess server) is my go-to for online chess.
Chesstempo is where I go for tactics and endgame puzzles (I think they have a subscription option, but I haven't subscribed, and so can't say for sure).
Playchess is associated with ChessBase and although I haven't tried their online service, ChessBase is an amazing program ...
I happen to be the author of the chessboard editor under discussion. Let me clarify the issue.
This editor is supposed to enforce legal moves but it has a bug which prevents it from being able to make a pawn capture onto the final rank. Therefore it cannot notice that a black chessman controls the f1 square. If you place a black bishop on the a6-f1 diagonal ...
As others have mentioned, there is no genuine site to make real money because it's so easy to cheat online by using chess engines.
The closest thing to "money" would be "ducats" as allowed on the Playchess server. Playchess has strong algorithms that can detect if you are cheating (i.e. using a program), so it is a pretty legitimate way of making "money". ...
The best completely free website I know of is Lichess. Personally, I use Chess.com. It's free to play on, and many of the features it has can be used by anyone. However, to gain full access to the website (e.g. the video library), you do need to pay for a membership. It is relatively inexpensive though—$100 per year, which is equivalent to $8.33 per month. (...
In no order of priority:
http://chess.com is relatively new to the scene, but they have Pogolina on
board who will definitely pull in the traffic
Chessbase News is really a chess product site masquerading as a news
site, but they cannot be disregarded. They have relay services on their playing server (similar to ICC and FICS), but here we will limit ...
Chess.com offers a free trial for their highest membership (diamond) for a month. I highly, highly recommend trying that out. In addition to outstanding videos updated regularly by titled players on various aspects of the game, you also have a neat tactics trainer that allows you to customize what kind of tactics you want to do/how many at a time/what rating ...
Since playing chess is not a job for most of us, it may not make much sense to ask how many games should you play. Some people relish the adrenaline rush of 1 minute chess, some can play for hours, some like to play three games at once... and then some others like to play once a week. The answer depends on who you are, but since it seems that online tourneys ...
Chess.com listed this as an inaccuracy because the engine is running at a limited depth, only looking at each move for a few seconds.
When I put the position after 5...Bg4 into Stockfish, it gave an evaluation of +0.12 at 16 ply. But at 18 ply, the evaluation dropped to -0.38. Most likely if you had run the analysis at "maximum" (which I realize is locked ...
The easiest way I can think of is to write your own scraper (say) in Python.
I'd use beautifulsoup and aim at several sites, including Google Images (within whatever limits they impose)
If you are familiar with Python, this SO question is all you really need.
Start with Google Images, chessbase.com, and then make a round of the numerous chess websites that ...
Lichess.org is building a decent following of users with a very appealing interface, albeit a web one. It has drawn a number of IMs, FMs, NMs and one or two GMs. Oh yeah, it's free too.
TWIC, of course, as mentioned above, especially for it's live PGN files.
There is no inconsistency. When you make a move, the computer no longer has to search the previous position. It can now focuses all processing power into the new position, and thus the evaluation might change. The game tree could be very different.
This is just like how we play chess.
You can do this
at https://lichess.org. Go to the "Play" tab, and select "Tournaments." Assuming that you have a lichess account, (all they need for that is your e-mail, and they do not spam it) you will see an option to create a tournament. Once you select that option, you will be able to specify the start position in the tournament (this ...
chessclock.org - add the website to the home screen on your phone and tilt the phone to the side

This is like asking "what is the ideal number of hours to read each week".
The answer is: it depends on the person.
The only solution is to experiment with different numbers and see what works best for you.
Great place to play Chess, very active Chess forum, you can pay to get rid of advertisements, get unlimited access to videos and use the Tactics Trainer and Chess Mentor features of the site, for free you can still play unlimited games but can only do about 10 tactics a day and no access to Chess Mentor and videos.
ChessLecture.com is amazing
I won a free 15 day trial and with the TON of GM lectures on it I learned some new great opening theory that helped me win a few tournament games
I havent yet subscribed but I just may.
-Update: I just renewed my membership, it is great!

Did not find a single serious site. Too many cheaters, too strong engines!
Earlier, I mentioned finding this site:
but after logging in and trying it out...it was empty / filled with bots.
Tim Harding, one of the writers for ChessCafe.com, reports that he hasn't been paid for the last two articles he wrote. The conclusion has to be that it isn't coming back.
The internet is free and people are very reluctant to pay for content, even content as good as that which was provided by ChessCafe.com.
If you play on a tournament in http://lichess.org, you have the option to go into Berserk mode. This effectively halves your time (NOTE: not your opponent's), for the possibility of winning more points. If you're playing a 1 minute tournament, then berserking every game will allow you to effectively be playing 30 second games.
That being said, you won't ...
Chess-db allows you to search their database for a player and download all their games. For instance, if you search for Magnus Carlsen you get to his Chess-db profile page where there is a link which allows you to download all his games in their database. This is very useful for finding and studying the games of famous players or just for finding the games ...
Opening tree happens to be the website you are looking for, in it you use a database of games or someone's Lichess or chess.com username to get detail about their games. It shows frequency, last played, best win, worst loss, win-loss stats and performance. It also have have fatabases of famous players in it. Checking Anand's games as black, after playing 1....
