Games


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:

Wilhelm Steinitz

SteinitzBorn in 1836 in Prague, world champion between 1866 and 1894.
He laid down the base of positional game, therefore he is known as the founder of the modern chess. No doubt, Steinitz has opened a new chapter in the history of the game. Because of his careness, efforts for the economical play, the great attackers of his age (Chigorin, Gunsberg) have lost in order. His approach was not appreciated by the age he lived in. Players didn't take too much care of the pawn, the structure of the game, opposing to Steinitz, who probably took too much care of these.
On the first official world championship, in 1886 in New York and in St. Luis, Steinitz played 10:5 with 5 draws against the Polish Johannes Hermann Zukertort. He defended his title against Isidor Gunsberg, and twice against Mihail Chigorin too. Then lost it in 1894 against Emanuel Lasker in the final.
Finished his life in 1900 in New York in a mental hospital.
 
Claiming Result

It is possible here that the innocent player claims any result in a game which has been terminated by his/her opponent's fault.
It's not clearly the best if the innocent player wins, especially not if the game just started or he/she has a loosing position.
Sometimes it's definitely wrong if our rating is over our real playing strength, therefore players can claim draw and losing beside winning, and can delete the broken game without any result.
This can happen if our opponent runs out of time and has no more vacation for the current year or his/her vacation has also elapsed, or when he/she simply changes their mind and leaves the club.
In these situation it's up to the innocent player, what result he claims for that game. His/her results change according to the choice, the guilty player loses independently.
So, we can claim the best result for us in broken games, which is not necessarily the winning.
Tournament games differ, those are won by the innocent player, there is no result claim there.
