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:

Chess Tournaments

Modern chess tournaments began in the 1840s and the first international tournament was held in London, in 1851. Strong international tournaments were still quite rare and in the 1880s a master would have been lucky to be able to play in one reasonably strong tournament a year.

By the 1890s, however, a master could enter many strong tournaments throughout the year, and the prize money offered at tournaments made it possible for masters to have a professional chess career.

Nowadays there are many strong tournaments for masters and grandmasters, but there are also a huge number of tournaments for players of every strength. Weaker players today have the chance of improving their play by taking part in such tournaments, which are very competitive.
 
Three Setups Repetition Rule

The server fully supports this special rule and players can claim a draw according to this rule.
In this case two equal signs have to be written at the end of the move.

If the claim is correct, the game ends in draw immediately.
If the claim in incorrect, the game continues and a draw offer will be available for the opponent that she can accept, if she wants to. This feature has been created to be in accordance with the official FIDE rules.
