GoldChess.com was created by a chess friend who loves entertainment at the top intellectual level (highbrows time is coming!). He is an amateur chess player, without any category or rating. The idea of creating GoldChess.com emerged out of the blue in the most difficult moment of his life when he was dying from an unknown blood disease, At that time his friend, knowing his passion, brought him a chess computer program called Chess Elite. And that’s how it started.The author played dozens of chess games against the program and, seeing their beauty and uniqueness, he chose several of them and put them in his book “How to defeat a computer in a game of chess?”. At that time, this was the only book in the world dealing with the subject matter.
The inside willpower, fortitude and fascination with the Royal Game allowed him to overcome adversities, win his life and create this most phenomenal project ever. The games were played and constantly improved in the subsequent years, until a set of several hundred of unique chess problems was created. Players from all over the world, competing with each other at GoldChess.com, can now solve those problems and win considerable amounts of money.
GoldChess.com is a game promoting intelligence and creative work of the human brain, and praising the power of reasoning. The game itself is somewhat magic. Professional chess players, including Grandmasters, do not have any greater chance to win than amateurs. In fact, the odds could be even against them winning. This game is open to everybody, beginning from people who have just started their adventure with chess and ending on professional chess players. The author dedicates his book titled “How to defeat a computer in a game of chess?” to all of them. After reading it, the players will be able to play against Chess Elite Educational Computer and compete for prizes. Everyone playing GoldChess has a chance to win.
