This is my current favorite Chess Forum. There's a much wider group of Chess enthusiasts here, meaning there's more to help analyze your games and point out where you might be going wrong (it all adds to your learning and Chess-improvement).
This was the first Chess Forum I experienced. It's not bad; for the most part, you get your Chess queries answered fairly quickly.
This is where I go when I want to research Openings played by elite & professional Chess Players. I also use these games as I train my chess-brain to spot Tactics, Combinations, and the like.
Chess Openings Explorer
Here, you get to click on a move and it'll give you statistics based on the percentage of players who've won/lost with the move. With each move, the database comes back with next possible moves - each with their own stats - until the sequence is exhausted.
