Playing chess in the club continues via email.

Some of the players in the club uses the graphical format below to receive their opponents' moves. Others use plain text messages, others use PGN.

This page is for those who use the html message format, instead of plain text and PGN. (These settings can be changed anytime by the players). For players using the html format, the server generates the changed game diagram after each move in html format.
Using an html compliant email client or web service is necessary to use this feature. All the modern email clients support displaying standard html messages. Players who use an email client that doesn't support html message format won't be able to use this feature. They receive their opponents' moves, or whole games in plain text or in PGN format instead of the graphical boards. They may need a different software to display the boards. For example ECTool is a right software for them.

Players can choose which piece set they want to use in their graphical boards generated by the chess server.

My favourite chess problem

Many years ago, searching for the Internet over chess problem, I bumped into a very interesting piece.
Find it on the bottom as a FEN row, clicking on it the board will also appear.

The task is: white mates in one!

Can't be too hard, I thought, but scrolling over the possibilities the solution just didn't come up.
I check everything once more, then again, and again, and once I found another way that was hidden for me before. The solution also hid there. It became my favourite chess problem then, but of course, it's true, there are many many beautiful problems out there.

n1b5/p2p2BB/P6p/1RQKpP2/
2N4P/P1k5/P1PN1PnP/4R3


This was the first problem I submitted to the server. Some players can solve it, some don't. Some believe there is no valid solution.
So, check this problem if you want. And enjoy.
 
Pairing

It's easy to find opponents here by pairing. Players can request pairing for one game, or that the server should search for opponents until she plays less than the given number of games.
This last one is the automatic pairing.
By default those players will be paired, who's ratings are closer than 100 elo points, and has never, or more than 90 days ago they played.
These parameters can be customizes, if, for example, somebody wants rather stronger or weaker players.
