Big chess world championship

The very 1st Big Chess world championship (ever!) waiting list is open, the tournaments will start on july 1st, 2010.

Now it is time to promote again this incredible game where chess players may be quite lost during the first games (the value of the pieces may move quite fast), its complexity is probably somewhere between chess & Go...

Just let your chess engines on your chess games, you only need your brain on the 16x16 board, join the fun! :)

More Big chess categories

Also I've added a few more big chess tournaments categories to help players to find their place faster in the rating list.

It is also possible to play Big Chess bullet bronze games, as a test for now...

It seems there is no final match phase for this. Do you plan to have a match between defending champ and challenger in future editions of the championship, and if not, why not?

In my opinion the duration of the games is too unpredictable to organize a cycle with 3 rounds or more like regular chess... 1 round here may take a year, maybe more. Maybe we can envisage to change the rules after the first cycle if the games go fast enough. To be continued...
