Help me help my grandpa!

So Grandpa's a chess wiz. He's got that game with the bearded dude on it, Chess Master 2000 or something like that, and tears it apart on the highest difficulty. So I figured I'd let grandpa loose on the internet. Problem is, his version of the game is two years old and is no longer playable online. Where can I find him a website where he play chess online, for free, with a large number of players? I'd prefer a site where he could make an account and log his victories and losses. Anyone know of anything?

    Yahoo chess is the first thing that comes to mind.

    I'd suggest Yahoo! chess

    http://games.yahoo.com/ch

    Alot of varying skill levels and a ton of players. As long as he's use to the random douche bags on the internet, he'll probably have a blast over there.

    http://gameknot.com/ This is a site I use to use back when I still played chess. It has slow games, on the order or a move a day style. The players are less like normal internet people as well.

    A lot of high level chess play is done online these days. I don't know how advanced the AI for CM2k is but your pap pap could be playing aspiring grandmasters if you want. Folks on yahoo! chess might be scrubs compared to your pap pap. I have the link at home I will post it tonight if I remember.

    FunOrb has online chess against real people. I'm not entirely sure whether it's part of their pay-to-play scheme, though.

    EDIT: Free, but he'll have to make an account.

    EDIT2: Ugh, I should read the whole thread, this was already solved :(
