  Statistics


To show the number of players in the club, their activity, you can find some statistical values here:

Type Value
Number of active players: 114
Number of running games: 101
Number of moves yesterday: 127
All incoming email messages: 4070755
All outgoing email messages: 6336657

A player becomes inactive if he/she is not playing in any game, does not have a pairing request, and sent his/her last message to the server more than 100 days ago. At this point he/she is temporarily removed from the players list, inactive players do not count into the above value.

Running games are those which have both players, have already started, but still didn't finish, so which are currently in progress.

Yesterday's moves are those which were taken from yesterday 00:00 until today 00:00 GMT.

All incoming messages are those, which were sent by the club members to the server from somewhere the beginning of 2002.

Outgoing messages were sent by the server to the players, also from around the beginning of 2002.

If you like to play chess, playing many games simultaneously, if you like to think your moves when you have time, and it doesn't bother you if your games last several weeks, then you are welcome to join the club.

And here you can find some rather interesting than important statistics about pieces' activity in all the games since Jan 17, 2003:

Piece Moves % Captures % Captured %

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.
 
Starting Games

Games start from the standard initial setup by default, but it is possible to start new games from any setup.
Other setups can be given at challenges, in the following two ways::
  • With move list: the given sequence of valid moves that reach the specific setup.
  • With FEN line: this is the standard one line description of any position (either invalid)
With these two ways we can exercise openings, middle games or endings, or can replay games from one point, or else.
