New way…

Goldchess is a new way of chess. We bring a fresh breath to the royal game in our pursuit of beauty and aesthetics. We are a global chess community promoting brilliancy in the game of chess through letting every player discover their inner genius. Goldchess is somewhat like a modern form of solving chess problems which promotes creative ideas, courageous attacks and spectacular sacrifices. By encouraging our participants to be creative and active, we help them develop confidence in their skills and satisfaction with their play, prizes they win, titles they receive and a sense of belonging in the Goldchess community.

Goldchess contributes to the heritage of the royal game by generating a multitude of beautiful games played by everybody. Our products allow every chessplayer to be a part of something extraordinary. The frameworks of our games and money prizes create a unique, unmatched experience, which inspires motivation, competitive spirit and creativity.

We offer a wide variety of products. First of all, we bring back the good habit of awarding beautiful chess games by sponsoring brilliancy prizes in tournaments all around the world. Just recently, we awarded GM Alexander Fier from Brazil for his excellent win over IM Warakomski in the Najdorf Memorial tournament in July 2016. We plan to further award chess players, authors of beautiful games, in many future tournaments.

In most of our games, the participants are instructed to beat the CEEC computer program (educational level, rating of 1800) ELO within a fixed number of moves (or, if possible, faster than the author), while satisfying certain border conditions, such as the solution involving a queen sacrifice, or the checkmate being delivered by a certain piece. One such game, the Gold0, is addressed toward amateur players exclusively. Participation is free of charge. You can try your skills out here and see how you do against other amateur players. We also have a free monthly game, Genius Test (more difficult), with prizes ranging in the hundreds of dollars, and titles of Goldchess Genius.

This week, we are concluding first editions of two tournaments: the Rosija-America Departments Tournament and the Independent Department Tournament. In the former, positions from the match Anand-Gelfand were chosen as tasks to be solved, giving the players a chance to put themselves in the shoes of the World Champion and the Challenger. The fastest participants to submit correct solutions win prizes. This framework is our signature idea.

We will be launching a new product within the next few weeks: Goldchess Express, a quick tournament with a prize pool of $25,000 to be distributed to the winners over a week (5 times $5,000). We now accept entries to the tournament. The price of the license which gives the right to participate is $25. For more information, please check out our webpage

Goldchess World Cup is planned for 2017, with entries already being accepted. If a sufficient number of entries comes before 1st December 2016, the Goldchess World Cup will take place this year. The winner, future Goldchess World Champion, will earn $10,000.

You thought good money prizes in chess were reserved for the top 10 players in the world? That is not true. Without having to leave your house, you can successfully compete and win thousands of dollars at In Goldchess, everybody has equal chances. Join us now! Goldchess Express is waiting for you, and so is the CEEC – just listen to our song.

Try to get the title of Goldchess Genius. The title is reserved for the first 10 players to submit correct solutions to our Genius Test. Among those 10 players, we will draw a prize of $200.
Everybody is welcome to participate!
