Is there any opensource chess engine that I can use to practice my OpenGL skillset? I think it would be a neat exercise.

You could take a look at GNU Chess . I'm not 100% sure, but I think there was a Python project that used GNU Chess as the AI "engine", so you can probably extend it to and make a 3D frontend.
