    Is there a chess game that allows one player to be on the 650 while the other plays on a PC, with a bluetooth connection between the two?

    No...not that I'm aware of. Sounds like the features your asking for are purchase features. In other words you gotta pay to play for the over-BLuetooth chess program...


    Someone please chime in if they have their own view.

    I doubt there's a way to do it via bluetooth.
    ChessGenius 2.01 allows you to play between two Palm devices using IR, though I haven't tried it myself; but not between Palm and PC.
    And ChessMaster 1.5.6 and Chroma Games Chess 1.8 don't have inter-device play at all.

    You can probably accomplish a Treo to PC game via the web. You just need to find a chess website that works on the Treo.

    Also, Multiplayer Championship Chess claims the ability to play over the Internet. I don't know if that means with another Palm device, or with anyone online.

    Hope that helps.

    .

    I tried this program the other day, and I couldnt get it to do anything online. The company seems to be focussed on gambling games, and doesnt even mention the chess game on their actual website. The online component is meant to direct you to a group of other eager players, but all it did was ask me how much I wanted to bet! Very, very strange. Even the human v comp component seemed very featureless, and i just wouldnt take anything this company says at face value.

    As for playing each other via the web, there's a thread here bemoaning the lack of any current program allowing Palm users to access the main chess servers (e.g. ICC)

    but it does mention a browser-based possibility:

    I've not used it nor heard any feedback on it.
