I am from the world of chess, representing a species of people with profound and in-depth thinking. And I would like to convey to everyone, especially to chess players, what I have observed. FB makes people shallow. It fosters superficiality. And worst of all, people mostly do not realize it and do not notice it. I have noticed it. People, if they like something, even if it is only intuitively, limit themselves to click on “like” and everything ends there. Generally they do not know exactly what they “liked”. Example: I introduce the chess players to a novelty: Goldchess, a new way of chess, which contains a variety of different components. Among other things: the Live (chess) Puzzle game. People look at it and click their “likes”. Naturally, I imagine that when they clicked “like”, they would also click on the link, enter the site and solve the problem waiting there, as Live Puzzle, although it offers prizes of US$ 250 in total, is a free game and anyone can win. However, nothing like that happens. Someone clicks a “like” on Live Puzzle and nothing else follows, there is no further sequence. The “liking” person does not enter the site, does not read the contents, does not give it a try, does not send in a solution and does not win the prize. Just a superficial reaction.
Goldchess can be compared with the flights to the outer space. Someone passes by – say, a travel agency – where he or she can get a free ticket for a flight, clicks “like” and goes away. Never flies anywhere, never takes up an opportunity, never comes to know anything. Does he or she lose something? Certainly, yes. But the opportunity still awaits there. A chance to go back, take a ticket and fly. So, give up the superficiality and recover yourself. The fun of knowing Goldchess for a chess player is nothing less than a flight to another galaxy. Check it out for yourself.
Goldchess is a new formula, a new way for chess. This means that here everyone starts from scratch and has the same chance of winning. In order to acquire the required skills and win the title of a Goldchess grandmaster, prize-winning players, Grandmasters, International Masters and National Masters must follow exactly the same path as a beginning amateur. And it cannot be taken for granted that they will cover it faster than the beginner. So far, there is only one Goldchess grandmaster – Alex Nurijanyan, 17, from Armenia, Fide Elo 1675.
Several Grandmasters from that country took part in the Millionaire tournament, but they did not succeed. The tournament was won by young, practiced Goldchess players who know how to defeat our application, which is an opponent greedy for pieces and pawns. The knowledge of this mannerism of the CEEC allows an experienced player to play a risky variation including piece sacrifice. And if the piece is captured – which in this case is certain – a possibility to checkmate the opponent will arise. So, it is not chess playing skills that is most important in Goldchess, but psychology, understood – as we have already stated in a different article – as an ability to find a way to win against CEEC.
Moreover, as everyone needs to start from scratch, Grandmasters are not flocking into Goldchess, because what fun would it be to start as an amateur?? But thanks to that Goldchess provides large numbers of average and amateur players who do not belong to the elites with a possibility to win considerable prizes . We need to remember that all the problems are actually prepared by an amateur who formally plays on the category II level. Because it is mainly imagination that decides about success in Goldchess. In addition, as we have already mentioned, Goldchess provides a luxury of stress-free playing. You can freely undo moves and look for other variations. CEEC will not become offended or call an arbiter. No stress. Only in Goldchess.
Log on, play and win!

The Goldchess philosophy is simple. Make chess big on a world scale and give them the importance they deserve. The chess world is powerful and rich in itself, it does not have to bow down to any sponsors so that there is money for rewards and organization. 400 million chess players worldwide and over 50 million. registered on chess portals around the world are a force that can do everything if it unites. Today, Goldchess portal is the platform for unification, which has the world’s only possibility of running tournaments with a million and more participants, which translates into the highest attractiveness and prize pools in millions of dollars. Of course, as in each tournament, the main prizes will be won only by those who win the first places, but all the chess players, professionals and amateurs, each of 50 million registered on chessboard players’ portals, have equal chances. Are you registered? Do not wait, buy in to the Millionaire tournament, because a beautiful car, the A-class Mercedes, will be drawn only among the first 10,000 participants who paid the entry fee. And besides, you have the chance to win one of the main prizes, or even one of many additional, (see information on the site – Results).
The Millionaire tournament in which we would like to see one million chess players in April will take place, regardless of the number of participants. Maybe with smaller prizes, if there is not a minimum of players, but it will take place.
PS. All other chess portals in the world have similar products and tournaments. We have quite different, that’s why all chess players can play without a problem, with them and with us.
We have written before that there is no chess without Goldchess. Now we have to add even more: Goldchess means knowledge that is indispensable for any chess-player of today. Those who come to know Goldchess and explore its conundrums, increase the level of their skills and as a consequence rapidly advance to the group of world’s top players aiming to dominate the game in the nearest future. We dare to forecast that if a Goldchess contender takes part in a match for the world championship, that candidate would defeat severely any other rival challenging the title. Without Goldchess background one cannot be a decent chess player anymore. The knowledge of Goldchess constitutes an invaluable complement to chess-playing education.
Goldchess means the techniques of future. Our games teach and bring you one level up. We have excellent examples to prove it on our Goldchess portal: visit our We Learn Goldchess, Featured Games or Genius Test Winners tabs. December GT problem provides an excellent paragon of chess-playing genius, not only at Goldchess but in general. Just 6 moves to make and nobody manages to win the game in several days. The task includes one move which would make Capablanka himself burst with pride. Or Fisher, Tal, Carles and many other grandmasters, the most important names in the world of chess. Therefore let us learn Goldchess, because in few years one cannot become a skilled chess player without knowing Goldchess. If you want to be good at it, start today!
Evolution of solutions in Hunt 5,6,7, and 8
Requirements: victory in 34 moves, with capturing the queen.
All the games have been shown under -Winners- the Hunt game.
Hunt 5, position after 18 moves. One solution incorrect, checkmate in 35th move. Since we decided that finding the author’s variation with sacrifice of the knight was too difficult, we showed the sacrifice and the next position is after 22 moves.
Hunt 6 – a player from Armenia solved the problem, but the solution did not belong to the same class as the author’s one. To provide a hint on the author’s solution and to exclude this specific variation, in Hunt 7 we present a position after 23 moves.
Hunt 7 – unexpectedly a 13-year-old player submitted a dual solution, which means a variation other than the author’s one. Victory in 33 moves, the requirement has been met, the queen has been captured. And this means a misfire – an inaccurate position. So, another modification to exclude also this variation. We have added some moves. Position in Hunt 8 after 28 moves.
Hunt 8. And this position stopped the players short. Formally, only 6 moves were to be moved. We have added a total number of 10 moves to the initial position. It should be easier, but it is more difficult. And this is the specific character of Goldchess. Starting from the position after 18 moves, the problem was very difficult due to the sacrifice of a knight, which was difficult to find. Then, after 22 and 23 moves it was easier, but after 28 moves it became so hard that no player managed to solve the problem. Now I may let you in on the secret – this is a Genius type problem.
It contains a move that will bring you to your knees. Beauty and artistry of chess. This is Goldchess.
Announcing the tournament for a million of chess players to be held in April 2018 we have made things difficult for us and for the potential participants alike. In the period scheduled for paying registration fees, from 2 January 2018 till 31 March 2018 ten thousand chess players would have to register each day in order to get a million of them ready for the tournament in one hundred days. It seems almost impossible to us, therefore we extend this period. You may pay your registration fee starting from 22 September 2017.
Every chess player will have 9 months to prepare. You need to practice playing with CEEC, taking free games or participating in our tournaments. When we talk to chess players, many of them say that the prizes (top 5 – US$ 150,000) that have never been offered in any tournament in the world before and the titles are important, but the most exciting would be the satisfaction of winning against a million chess players!
Here we will add that there is also a great fun just to play with a million of rivals.
However, whether there will be a million of them as planned or not, this does not depend on us, only on the chess players themselves.
Just remember that for the millionth participant, we are going to have a special prize – a car. If the turnout for the tournament will not reach a million, we will draw that prize among the first one ten thousand registered players. If we do not reach even 10,000, we won’t have any problem, because probably there will not be any car to win.
But if million participants are really registered, I can tell you that the prizes for winning the games will be a lot higher, and in the final game there will be half a million dollars at stake!
Now go and practice your chess skills.
One more thing. If the turnout meets the expectations, the Millionaire tournament shall become a highlight in the history of chess, bringing fame to all its participants, especially the winners.
What can we add more?
Napoleon, when addressing his troops under the Egyptian pyramids, before the battle of Embabeh, trying to summon their pride and bravery, said: Soldiers, forty centuries are looking down upon you!
We do not aspire to match Bonaparte and we tend to be more modest, yet with all due respect we can paraphrase his words in our way: Chess players! Twenty three centuries are looking down upon you! (The number comes from the army of King Poros around 327 BC – which served as a model for the original chess game)
And feel invited for the tournament.
Goldchess Non Tournament is just a bit of playing around, but recently the players have suffered from the so-called “chess blindness” a syndrome well known from tournament practice. During the last two editions nobody could find a variant of solving a problem that required sacrificing the rook. And it is really simple… and well visible. And witty as well. Instead, we have received lots of twin solutions, which indicated the use of the same chess software. As we observe, the players still try to do it although in the very beginning we said that no chess software shall solve Goldchess problems, especially with the requirements that we set here, that is sacrificing a rook and winning a queen. So you better rely on your brains and… win. Today we have offered the prize worth of US$ 400 whereas the players won only US$100. Well, the amount of the prize always matches the quality of your solution
We wish you better results
