If you are looking for chess games played in the club, then please see the Events page, this page talks about games in general.

Players can play as many games as they want in the club. A maximum of 100 simultaneous games is a general setting to avoid overloading.
Many games run simultaneously by each player.

Games can be divided into three groups in the club. These are all standard chess games, all the rules apply, but some of their attributes are different according to which groups they belong to.

The following table shows the attributes of the games belonging to the three groups:

PGN Format

The PGN format is a standard way to describe a chess game.
It contains players' data such as names, ratings, country codes, the date, and site of the game, and contains the moves also that have been taken in the game, and the result of the game also.
The game can be in progress too, in this case its result is "*", later it usually changes to "1-0", "0-1" or "1/2-1/2".
Please find the detailed description of the PGN format here.
The server understands the PGN format, it can send and receive moves in this format.

Many softwares use this format to exchange games, those too which are used by correspondence chess players to play their games, such as ECTool, or Mailchess (more on the Links page).
