Alone against the whole world

I am an amateur chess player. I play at the level 2 according to the European classification.
I have created Goldchess. About 20,000 games won against the CEEC educational computer.
Almost 20 years of work during which I have been playing chess, creating games, writing two books on chess. And there will be many more of these games because Goldchess is like Wikipedia. Every day, our players create chess jewels that systematically enlarge our Chessbase. The names of these creators will be inscribed with golden syllables into the history of chess. Out of 20,000 games, we currently have around 2,000 that are our own brilliant and breath-taking games. And we will successively bring all of them to the dowry of worldwide chess.

Since 2012, Goldchess has its home: the website It is here where are our weekly, daily and 24/7 tournaments are organized, where everyone can play at any time that is convenient for them.

We bring something precious and we give it to the world of chess. New knowledge, new ideas, new style of playing. Also, we teach how to build winning positions and how to actually win them. Our computer, a charming opponent of all players, plays at a level of 90% of the chess population, so you can learn and apply our techniques in virtually every chess tournament. I invite you to our free Training Box. Learn and raise your level.

As I wrote before, we offer tournaments with entry fees and high prizes, and free tournaments with smaller ones, where you can challenge the champions from Armenia and test your chess level and skills. Of course, when playing from a given position against our CEEC computer.

Why the title says:“Alone against the world”? Well, it is easy to win amateur games faster against our computer, which has been proved hundreds of times by our chess players. An amateur player creates them individually and none of the great players verify them. Anyway, it is basically impossible because players are unpredictable. Any chess player, even a grandmaster, cannot predict everything what can be played.

So, the amateur is pretty much on his/her own. And because of that we created the Win Faster Tournament, in which you only have to win a game one move faster than an amateur. We have 3 levels of this tournament planned and prepared. With 3 games and a US$1,000 main prize, 4 games and a US$10,000 prize, and finally 5 games and a US$100,000 prize! The WF tournaments take place cyclically, every week, 3 times, and once a month, every last Sunday of the month, we also have for you… a free Win Faster Tournament with a prize of US$5,000!
Now you probably understand perfectly why the player is alone against the world. Yes, Goldchess is an amateur’s challenge for chess players around the world. All of them, including the top ones. We invite you to the first (February 28) and next confrontations.
An amateur against the rest of the world!

Only at!


Dear Chess Players!

We created the most beautiful website for you, and we want to attract millions of players to our beautiful chess world. For a very simple reason.
One of the most important leaders on the chess market is not doing a good job for the chess. Their selfish and egocentric approach created a strange situation in the world of chess. Nobody cooperates anymore, all chess portals isolate and distance themselves from one another… and hate one another like rabid dogs (it is an opinion of a world-famous grandmaster). The aforementioned website also blocks the chess development in all possible respects, treating any project which is not theirs as an example of hostile competition. They adhere to the principle that there should be only them and no one else. It is wrong and pointless. Moreover, they do not care about the chess development, but exclusively about their own business, which is highly unethical and reprehensible.

We want to change it, and we will. When millions of chess players come to us, we will make chess grow. Nothing should divide us. The chess community is one big family. We will restore friendship in the chess world so that all portals love and cooperate with one another for the good and development of the chess. Perhaps when that time comes there will be no room for the aforementioned chess site, but I am sure that if this happens, I am certain now and for sure: no one will cry for them.

The (chess) world will not collapse because of that, and if there is to be a leader in it, a wiser and a better one, such a leader will surely appear, and we can already see that leader. I mean the chess24 website, currently owned by Carlsen himself.

The other destructive web portal, I have mentioned in the beginning, also tried to marginalize chess24 by prohibiting cooperation with them and with other chess portal sin their contracts signed with associates all over the world. Hostility is a good thing, but among baboons, not in the civilized world. So, is the CEO of that hostile portal, a baboon? Well, we do not know it exactly, but we cannot rule it out.

Goldchess – our place in the world of chess

In the world there are 200 top chess players (2600+) and dozens of millions of others. So, let the best players play their own chess amongst them. Goldchess is for the other millions. However, if one of the top players visits Goldchess, something extraordinary and unpredictable happens.He or she loses the crown and is no longer a top chess player, but disappears into the crowd. At Goldchess, their skills turn out to be insufficient for beating our educational computer better and faster than the other players, including amateurs. That is what makes Goldchess something extraordinary. A worldwide phenomenon.

Goldchess is a platform for learning new techniques and for honing one’s skills. Playing against CEEC, our educational computer, will help millions of chess players to learn new techniques, improve their skills, save difficult positions, and generally win chess games in the brilliant Goldchess style.

There are many chess portals on the Internet where one can play chess and gain chess knowledge. But all of them generally offer the same knowledge, whereas we provide our own – fresh, virgin and new. At there are chess tournaments and games, 4-diagram chess puzzles with high prizes and with different difficulty levels, for amateurs and for the best players. With us you can learn how to play. You can pay an entry fee and play for great prizes in our tournaments, or you can compete for free for smaller ones. The current hit is the Daily tournament. It is held every day, and the best player wins $50. One game-one prize-one winner.
On our website you can also play against a friend from any continent, or against a real Master. Goldchess will train you to play beautiful chess. Goldchess is fun.
All you need to do is to register, log on and download our free application, which will be your opponent. With us you will get to know true and beautiful chess.Join us!

In our opinion
Blitz is fun. But it profanes chess. In our opinion blitz is chess for horse cart drivers. Tick-tock, tick-tock. Playing blitz chess, particularly on lichess and on, is a sheer waste of time. Blitz games are weak, contain many errors, and actually bring nothing new to the game. Which means they are worthless. They are played only for the purpose of killing time, and not for improving one’s skills. Of course, blitz games can also be beautiful. But as they are not recorded, they go unnoticed and disappear once and for all. This is not true of Goldchess. Our philosophy and ambitions are different. Here players win attractive prizes, games are recorded, and the most beautiful of them will become a part of the history of chess.Just as the names of their creators who played them.

Why do ‘strong’ chess engines fail to come up with our solutions?

So far we have carried out many tests with chess engines, but all of them involved only one engine at a time. Now we have tested three of them. In the test game starting from a position after 20 moves we win on move 29.

Starting from the said position and playing directly against CEEC, each of the chess engines, that is Houdini, Komodo and Stockfish, played the same variation and won only on move 34. The victory was a nice one, but weaker by 5 moves than the Goldchess solution. In addition, the fact that the engines played an identical variation shows that they use very similar algorithms which… do not go above level 5. Conclusion? The chess knowledge has come to a standstill. It is not broadened anymore. A new stimulus is needed. And here comes Goldchess, which has cut through the magical hoop of the fifth circle, and has shown the further road and direction for development. If we agree to assume that the entire chess knowledge gathered and present in the Universe stands for level 10, we are halfway to mastering it. With Goldchess, we can continue the journey.

Summary. Now you probably understand why the Stockfish, Houdini and Komodo engines fail to solve our chess problems. They lack the sufficient knowledge and therefore skills. They do not know Goldchess or our techniques, so the outcome can be no different. They play their level 5 chess variations, just as the entire population of chess players, and Goldchess is already on level 6. Different playing techniques and methods. Different evaluation of the strongest move and different vision of attack. Of course, our model variations are on the level of CEEC defending a position, but 90% of chess players play just as CEEC or are even weaker! Therefore, in the first stage it is knowledge and a great opportunity for them precisely. Each of them, if they learn and master our techniques, may become the leader of their group in a tournament and get into the first ten! – The ablest will reach for medals. In addition, we expect, or even more – we are actually sure that  masters with ratings above 2,700, as well as other talented players will use and develop our knowledge. They will improve our techniques and will create Goldchess of a higher level – 7 or maybe even 8. And that will enable them to reach the top. Now, in this light the book title, which was originally chosen intuitively, seems to be spot-on and fully justified. “Goldchess – Way to the Top“. Sic! A road for all. For millions of chess players who will learn and master the knowledge contained in the book.

“Goldchess – Way to the top.” (sections)

With this book you will set on a journey through three centuries of chess! From Morphy to Carlsen and further on into the 22nd century. At Goldchess we have created a style that will dominate chess throughout the coming 100 years!
Buy our book and win up to US$15,000!
Anyone who buys our book by the end of 2020 will receive codes enabling access to the Gold BOOK Challenge tournament, with a prize pool of US$15,000!

This book will enable any chess player to improve their level and rating by 50-100, or even more points. All they need to do is become familiar with, understand and master – better than others – the Goldchess knowledge. Either individual players or groups or teams may advance.
A team of chess players from one of the top countries, boosted with Goldchess knowledge, will reach for chess gold. Other teams will surely go up in the table. Of course, the book alone will not enable anyone to reach the top. We cannot guarantee, either that Goldchess will turn any player into Fischer or Carlsen. But everyone has a chance to improve.

In the Universe, everything is finite. Physics, chemistry, astronomy, as well as all other sciences and branches of knowledge are finite – they can be explored in 100%. But we are only developing them. We can only hypothetically assume that so far we have explored up to 30% of physics, 50% of chemistry, and 10% of astronomy, as far as the structure and working of the Universe are concerned. The same applies to chess.I assume we have learned 50% of chess knowledge.
Goldchess adds another 10%, with a growth option.The remaining part will be successively developed by artificial intelligence, such as Alpha 0, and by humans – chess players and geniuses that will appear in the coming years, decades or centuries.

And you. Buy now! (Book to be purchased in our e-shop)

Exciting World of Goldchess

Learn chess with Goldchess
In general, every lost game can be won from a certain position. And Goldchess teaches that. We have dozens of such games, lost by top class chess players, because the world champions that we turned into winners in Goldchess.
In Goldchess, players learn modern chess and discover new techniques. They simply improve their skills. Here is our prediction: in a few years’ time, those chess players who know the Goldchess techniques and who gained the Goldchess knowledge will play better than others and surely will be among global leaders.
We live in the age of creation of Alpha 0 whose chess style enchanted even the grandmasters. In their sincere and self-critical opinion – we, in comparison to Alpha, play rather boring chess.
In this regard, even the world champion Carlsen doesn’t play interesting chess. So, why can’t anyone beat him (for now)?
Because all the strongest players adapt to his playing style, that’s why. He’s simply the best in it and others have no style, like that of Morphy, Tal or Alpha 0.
Goldchess is like a return of Morphy and Tal to the 21stcentury. I’ll repeat my question: why can’t anyone win against Carlsen at the moment?
Let’s reverse the situation and take a look at the last game. Carlsen’s chess style didn’t win against Caruana.
Carlsen won thanks to a hat-trick – by betting on surviving in the main game and winning in speed chess in the overtime. In order to defend his title, he relied on speed chess, which is less valuable because a slowly thinking player pressured by time is less precise, makes mistakes and, as a result, loses. Time is, therefore, the only factor. Speed chess does not indicate a genuinely better player. A player who is not worse than the other, or maybe is even better than him, but thinks analytically and slowly is destined to lose in speed chess.
What is Carlsen’s style? Above all, I would accuse him of playing amateur chess. At least in some moments. Let me give you an example. The second part of the game, Carlsen goes for 14.a4, a seemingly solid and down-to-earth move but, according to the Goldchess analyst, completely wrong for this position. Any player from a random village who plays a tournament in a local parish club would definitely figure it out, and even a player at the 1500 level or an intelligent amateur without ranking will move like that with no problem whatsoever. The conclusion is simple. This is a move on an amateur level and not at the level of the world champion. In Goldchess, we’ve found a different move and a brilliant, winning variant. Goldchess presents a different type of chess. It restores and gives you a modernized idea of the styles of Morphy and Tal; it’s an introduction to the world of Alpha 0 and the chess of the 22nd century. If you want to improve and play better, you should give Goldchess a try.
Of course, our amateur, the creator of the Goldchess game, will not win in a direct game against Carlsen. But, on the other hand, Carlsen would not win many of the positions against the educational computer that our amateur has already won. And out of 10.000 game-tasks in Goldchess that you have to win from a given position, we have 9900 easy and 100 extremely difficult ones which may bring not only Carlsen but also global leaders, all living world champions and grandmasters from the level of over 2700 Elo to their knees. And sooner or later, such a game will take place. Goldchess will prove that chess is great and that the best masters of today still don’t know everything about it.

Chess is art. Goldchess – Art within Art

After two editions of the Millionaire tournament we noticed with an astonishment that chess players treated the prizes with disbelief and the tournament itself as an abstraction which lead them not to play it. We would like to clarify that. The Millionaire tournament with one million participants is not an abstraction, it’s a reality show which will be carried out in the next 2 years. In the meantime, we will be organising national tournaments from the Challenge series, open, however, to players from all around the world, in cooperation with the best organisers from these countries. When it comes to prizes, we also want to be straightforward. The $400.000 prize pool is just an introduction, we’ll give it to 20.000 participants. Under the tab named –Results– it is said that:
Millionaire tournament, with a prize pool of $400.000, guaranteed for 20.000 participants. For one thousand participants, the prize pool is $20.000. Below 1000, at the discretion of Goldchess.
So, the tournament is actually real, only the prizes change and as money does not grow on trees, the prize pool with fewer participants is smaller. Virtually everyone can play in the Millionaire tournament as Goldchess means tournaments of equal chances. On our website, there are no favoured players like in the traditional tournaments, moreover, they do not have a monopoly on winning. Players who are first to defeat our educational computer in a given way are the winners.

An amateur without ranking or a player with a ranking of 1400 may always win. Such situation took place in India, you may read about it under the–Window on the world– tag, and there are plenty of examples of it happening.

So, incredible prizes and equal chances for everybody is what Goldchess is all about. And there’s even more. In Goldchess, we give you the opportunity to create your own beautiful games which together with you, their creators, will go down in the history of chess. Do you want to gain fame and chess immortality? Play our game. Goldchess is all about fun with a thrill of adrenaline which does not involve stress.

Armenia at the top

In Germany, when it comes to the evaluation of car brands, there is a certain saying: “First there is Mercedes, then a huge gap after it, and then finally there is Audi.” In our game, Goldchess, we may say that the best chess players are from Armenia, then a huge gap after them, and then finally there is Poland and Polish players. The current problems included in two diagrams available for free playing and still with prizes for the winners, constituting the Goldchess version of Andersen Immortal Game and agame prepared by a Polish player, Przemek – ranked 1400, in which there are brilliant variants, nobody but Armenians has sent in solutions. Players from Israel, India, Russia, the US, Spain and Spanish-speaking countries, Brazil, Italy, Switzerland, Germany (the top ten) are either out of shape or simply can’t cope with our computer? What surprises us the most is the lack of success of players from Russia or India which are known to be chess powers. So it seems that the rest of the players can’t handle playing with a computer which only operates an educational software, the fact we alwayswant to emphasize. A computer that after all has to be defeated. Although there are some more difficult tasks, generally it is easy to win, but you have to learn and practice by playing our game. The fact that someone is a good chess player means nothing in Goldchess. Goldchess is a new formula, modern chess and the lack of Goldchess knowledge in chess education is the main reason standing behind the lack of success. In other words, someone who does not learn English will not speak it. In a chess tournament, a player who has some debut shortcomings will be able to play only the debuts that he or she knows. In Goldchess, without knowledge of Goldchess techniques, there is no winning opportunity, even for those who hold a title of a grandmaster. Practical knowledge of Goldchess will soon become an obligatory element of general chess knowledge. As we have already stated in another article, those chess players who will learn and master Goldchess techniques will be difficult to defeat and will prove to be better than others. Do you want to join the best? Explore Goldchess.

Hats off! Part II

There is a sentence in the main article which offended one (sic!) reader who also happens to be a chess player. Namely: “In other words, the truth is that it is backyard style chess, not to say checkers, that won the competition.” I would like to clarify this. I wrote this statement, as it quite often happens, in a “spur of the moment.” But let’s start from the beginning. The rules of the championship were thoughtlessly constructed or, to say the least, constructed in an unfortunate way. There is a rule that in the event of a draw in the main match and in the following ones, both players should play rapid chess first, then lightning chess, and when there is still a draw, they should proceed to Armageddon. And what is Armageddon, you ask. When it comes to checkers, a trivial game in comparison to chess, you need ¼ or even one tenth of thinking that you do in a chess play. During Armageddon you simply do not think at all. You play according to what you see, guided by intuition, routine and encoded scheme. Those games are full of mistakes and overlooks on both sides and the level is non-existent, amateur and backyard-like. That is one horrendous distortion and caricature of chess. If this option were to happen, the title would be a matter of chance, coincidence and, to put it mildly, worthless.
I wrote that statement with these thoughts in mind. So with all due respect for rapid and lightning chess, the sentence should go like this: It’s good that the Armageddon option didn’t happen because in this way the backyard style, not to say checkers, whichever you prefer, would have won the competition. A very interesting concept proposed in a comment of one of our readers is that in the event of a draw in the main match, the victory and the title should be awarded to the contender. Up to now it was exactly the opposite. And I approve this idea. Such a different concept would cause that the world champion would have to practically prove that he deserves to keep his title. And a draw means that he loses both his crown and title.
I’m all for it but everything is, naturally, in the hands of FIDE. However, it is rather hard to expect anything reasonable coming from them, if such masterminds as the one who created the rules are at the controls there. Unless maybe something has changed after the election. 🙂
