Am I able to use this system?
  Is it for me?


Many people like to play chess, but not all of them like correspondence chess. If you want to find out if this club is right for you, please read the statements below and check if they apply to you or not.
  • I like to play correspondence chess, or email chess.
  • I know the rules of chess or at least I'm ready to learn them.
  • I enjoy slower games, I like to analyze my games.
  • I will not use computer or other help, I play using my own brain.
  • I can play more games simultaneously if I have enough thinking time.
  • I want to deal with my games when I have time for them.
  • I don't mind if games last for several weeks or even a month or so, if I have enough time to think about my moves.
  • I would probably enjoy playing people from far away countries.
  • I can learn simple commands to take my moves, offer draw, challenge somebody, etc.
If most of these statements are true for you (the first four should be!), then this is the place you are searching for and you'll play exciting games here in the near future.

Mendeleev

Mendeleev Dmitriy Ivanovich Mendeleev (1834-1907) is best known for devising the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements.

He loved to play chess, among other games, and correspondence chess too. A beautiful but hard chess problem follows from him from July 4, 1889, white mates in two:

2Bn2b1/2b5/7Q/3kpN2/
1Rr1N3/3p2PK/8/8 w - - 0 1


White mates in two!
 
Friendly Games

If we want to play a game with somebody but don't want it to change our results, the challenge should be sent for a friendly game.
It's useful if we want to analyze a setup, replay a game, or even only for practicing.
This can be combined well with starting games from predefined setups.
