Re: Debatable blitz rule

In the past you can simply wait and run out of time. But not anymore. USCF added clause for cases like this.

Re: Debatable blitz rule

Re: Sergio NN 40x512

In my case 2x 2080 Super is not strong enough to benefit it to the fullest. I think CCC can benefit from it. TimeControl "3600+30" [Event "i7-5930K 4.5GHz"] [Site "i7-5930K 4.5GHz"] [Date "2020.01.12"] [Round "?"] [White "lc0"] [Black "Stockfish 10.01.20 Ultimaiq BM"] [Result "0-1"] [SetUp "1"] [FEN...

Re: Women World Fischer Random Championship 2019 Next Month in USA

Re: Should FIDE Create a No Castling Championship ?

That is just wishful thinking. Up to this point it has taken many years of lobbying effort to make Chess960 become a thing OTB.
