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.

Digest Mode

Since we can have many simultaneous games here, moves of our opponents' usually come all the day, sometimes disturbing us in our regular work, in having time with our family or else.

The digest mode tries to solve this problem: the moves will not be sent to us immediately, but will be put into our queue instead. Then the queued messages will be sent out at the given one or more hours of the day in one message.

This way we can set, for example, that no message from the server of the club will disturb us during the day, but later, all the today's moves will come in one digest message.
