First of all, you have to check out the last chess engine I wrote. I like it. Here is a converter from Yahoo's format to PGN and an EDN to PGN converter (EDN stands for English Descriptive Notation, a system that isn't much in use anymore).

PGN (Portable Game Notation) is the standard notation for recording and exchanging chess games. I use eboard under Linux to view games. Windows users: I hear WinBoard is not bad. Once you have a PGN viewer, check out my collection of games.

Imran Hendley is an awesome chess player. Here are the books he recommended to me and the comments he made at the time: There are a lot of crappy chess sites online. These aren't too bad: To typeset chessboards in LaTEX, use tex-chess. It's not bad! I have a book by Reinfeld that's falling apart (“Chess Mastery by Question and Answer”) which I started typing up using tex-chess ([PDF], [Source]).

What Imran said about this page: “Excellent page. 10/10. In fact, 11/10.”
