Chessfriends meeting in Lucca...Internet chess is one way among others to meet new friends, and sometimes two correspondence chess players from different countries meet for real, that's what happened to SIM Eros Riccio (winner of the 1st & 3rd FICGS freestyle cup & 8th Playchess freestyle tournament, Italia) and Thibault de Vassal (FICGS webmaster, France) who met in Lucca, Italia. Of course, it was a good time to play a few blitz games over the board ! It was years ago already, this website was young and Eros was not a top-5 ICCF player yet and the multi-titled champion that he is now.
Yen-Wei Huang is FICGS Go champion...The Go world championship final match finished, Yen-Wei Huang is Go champion again. You may find an analysis of the 5 games and his views around the world of Go (Weiqi, Baduk) in the forum.
Chess, poker holdem & chancy games...A few casino games like Poker or Backgammon now attract more and more chess champions as it is still easier to win bigger money prizes than in chess tournaments, by playing poker online in casinos or even during prestigious tournaments like the World Series Of Poker (WSOP). Their popularity shouldn't come as a surprise, chess is now even less popular than poker, particularly on television.
Like the king of games, poker boasts of a healthy mix of strategic thinking and excitement. Some other casino games are also very popular nowadays, such as Blackjack, Roulette, Craps or Video Poker.
