Gold Immortal 2, June 12

The Gold Immortal tournament took place. With only one player, ($10 pot collected), but we wanted to show you our unusual variations and game plans.  Every chess player can learn a lot from us. This tournament in our ambitious plans to reach one million prize pool. Today we were short of 99,999 players to reach such a pot. But we are of good mind. We will gradually reach the million dollar prize pool.
Report
 Task 1, mate in 31st Armenak played simply and effectively. But, see the Goldchess variant. Armenak's second solution is also different from ours. We show both. Task 3. Armenak to the pain effectively and... 3 moves earlier than us! And good quality, mate with a bishop But our solution also has its charm 22.Bf6, the untouchable bishop. We invite you to the next edition of this tournament in which, we repeat, the prize pool is created by the players themselves. 100 players means $1,000, 10,000 players means $100,000! You decide the amount of the prize pool yourselves.

2021-04-08

A tournament in which it is enough to win 3 games to become the winner and get the top prize.


Gold Immortal is already a serious tournament.
The parties of the first edition are the showcase of this tournament and the Goldchess style.
Those who have not understood it so far will now understand what it is and what beauty Goldchess brings. See for yourself. (in –Winners-Immortal)

Top113 September 25, at 18:00 CET. Tournament moved. We are waiting for 50 players.
 
From December 10
The match between Carlsen and Nepomniachtchi in the Goldchess version
In our version of the match we show different chess than that presented to us by the two best chess players in the world. First of all it is spectacular, full of new concepts and techniques that both masters would be proud of. We extracted everything, or almost everything, from the same positions, and certainly what the masters who presented the style of mathematical chess logic could not show. And we hope that our official replay match will also go down in chess history. Our chess is an element. See for yourself.

Top113 - December 17 game4. Entry fee $10 - access for 3 days. 17,18,19 December, games 4,5,6.
Game 4. 
Position after 14 moves. Carlsen's move 15.Qb5, after black's easily predictable reply 15...Qd7 with exchange of queens is not good. Carlsen practically eliminates the attacking power and the white attack itself. Our conception of the game and attack according to Goldchess is different. Our variant is winning in 28th move. In this game we rub shoulders with Capablanca's genius. Everyone who discovers our solution will feel the same. Black surrenders in the 28th move, because after 28... Kh8 there is a threat of 29.Qf7! Here I will add that after 24...Q:a2 black also loses. We will show our variant later.
Report: Armenak's fantastic game. Title: Gold Top Hero. See. Learn how to play from Armenak.
Game 5. The original position after 14 moves. In our case, after 24, we showed 10 solution moves. Win 32.The pawn sacrifice wins the move earlier. Again Armenak, $10 prize. Congrat

Game 6 December 19. Black draw. Goldchess is like Wikipedia. We have built Goldchess, the players will build up a second set of brilliant and unusual games. An example is today's sixth game of the match, lost by black. From the position in the original match game after white's 51st move, we achieved a draw on move 65, Armenak in a much simpler way on move 61. Armenak has a beautiful Talovian mind and although he is only IM in Fide, Nepo could learn a lot from him.
ps. Vitaly sent in a draw in 63 after time, and we shortened his variant to a draw in 60.
See all solutions.

Top112 - December 12 game 3. In our case, mate 27 and a virtuoso, very strong attack.4 beautiful solutions. Grandmaster Yuri Gonzalez Vidal mated in beautiful style in 25, 2 moves earlier than us! His sacrifice of the bishop was a trap. Black's consummation of it ended in a mate. The author's mate was sent by Damian, one minute after time. Vitaly, an amateur from Russia didn't get the mate, but won in 25th move. For Yuri $15, for Damian and Vitaly buy-in to Top113,114,115. On Friday $10 buy-in for 3 days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, match games 4,5,6. Enjoy
 
Top111 - December 11 game 2. In this game we show chess with a capital "S". White, after move 19, has led to a situation in which they have to play forcibly 20.Rb1, which still does not solve the situation, because they lose quality. Goldchess shows another way to win, and your task is to find it. A Goldchess game in the good style of Tal from his best formative years.
Report - great emotions. 
A sensation! Nobody has solved our task, the 2nd game of the match, nobody has found our, winning variant. But we are not surprised. Since it was not discovered by Carlsen himself. Well, yes, but Carlsen the moment he made the idle move 20.Rb1, he no longer had a chance to find this game plan. So see how the second game should have been played from the position after 19 moves to win it with Nepomniachtchi. Tomorrow the third game. You are welcome
After time our GM Armenak sent instead of a win in 29, a mate in the 30th move. Nice concept. we show both solutions. Also Vitaly sent after time v29, a different solution than ours. See in Top Winner

Top110 - December 10. Replay of Carlsen Nepo match in Goldchess, game 1st. Feel invited
We changed the 14th move and in the 15th we made an inaccuracy, which black takes advantage of by playing 15...Nb4 and we lose a pawn. But black in the 24th move retaliates by repeating the famous mistake from the 1992 Fischer - Spassky game. 

Report
Today one of the best Goldchess players, Lukasz, came back to us. He sent 2 solutions, mate in 32 and win in 35 with fulfilling the conditions, i.e. getting all figures. Alex, our GM as a third player sent a win in 39, but different variant than ours. In the solution mate 32 our computer underestimated the strength of the game and the possibilities of the knight-rook duo.
They both deserved their prize, out of a pot of $15 Luke $10, Alex $5.
Congratulations. Tomorrow, game 2
 

Top109 - No one solved. The task was mate on the 29th move with the condition - without/no queens. Please read carefully the hidden content of the task, available when downloading the item. Thank you for your participation

Top108 - Only 3 players managed to solve this problem. But the solutions are beautiful. First Arman, 2 solutions, mate 27, time one minute and 23 seconds, second solution mate 29 with pawn, almost 4 minutes. Third Vitaly, but not mat only v24, and later m27 the same one what Arman sent, but he downloaded position after the tournament time. Armenak sent as fourth m27 with sacrifice of queen by.... black. On the other hand no one sent an author's. We'll award Arman and Armenak, both $5. Congratulations, exemplary games. They will go into Goldchess history.

Top107 - Today the players sent in some remarkable, brilliant solutions. The first Armenak, v26 with the sacrifice of the queen. We will add to the remarkable Goldchess games. Arman's two solutions (2 and 3) also outstanding. V24, 2 moves earlier and v25. Both showed world class chess today. The next one, Damian, sent the author's. Today they all deserve high prizes, which unfortunately there are not due to too few players. We hope that by the end of the year the turnout will improve and players will be able to win big prizes. The rest of us didn't send anything, but we thank everyone for participating. As for the prizes, we add $5 and everyone gets $5 each. Congratulations, you are playing spectacular and real chess. Bravo!.
ps. The solution v25 was sent last by Vitaly. Also an honorable mention.

Armenak sent v26 different to ours and after time. Thank you for your participation.

Top105 - Only Armenak sent the correct solution. Their own variant, different from ours. Pity it was two minutes behind schedule. But the prize is there, entry fee to Top106. Congratulations. We show both variants.

Top102 - We have 2 effective but simple solutions for moving faster. The first Armenak $5, the second Damian, $5. Obviously both not authored. However, this is not Goldchess. Our solution although a move later is really nice. Not without a reason we wrote in the text: the art of matting. But congratulations to the winners.

Top101 -  It was possible to win on move 51 in 4 ways. 2 correct, different solutions were submitted (45.Ra3, 45.Rc2). Our 2 variants still different. Arman wins, time 5:25. Ellina showed the winning position after the 51st move, but there is no computer pass (resigns). Thank you all for participation.

                  We show it in Winners. Welcome to Top101.

Top93 - 2 winners.Armenak, $10 for v33, a move faster, and Vitaly for mate 32, he receive a distinction, an entry to Top94.

Top92 - July10. The idea of Goldchess was to allow black to make up the second queen and win, (give mate) with two black queens (on the chessboard) The problem was best solved by Damian and Armenak capturing both hetmans. In our solution the 2 black queens stand idle while we mate forcibly. Today the winner is Damian who sent his solution earlier than Armenak. Congratulations.

Top91 - July3. Goldchess and our players are changing the face of chess. Today, Armenak's brilliant game and mate move faster. We will put Armenak's game in the most beautiful games of Goldchess.

March
Top81 Saturday 27 -   
First Yuri second Armenak. Both sent the same variant. An effective attack idea. But, not the author so half the pool to share. Yuri $15, Armenak $10. We will show the author's solution to the problem. Thank you all for your participation. Ps. Yuri sent also m31, 2 moves earlier, we will show it, Armenak m32- one move faster. Thanks to both.

Only after the tournament Damian sent mate24 with queen sacrifice. This mate will go down in Goldchess and chess history. Congratulations to all.
Top79 Saturday 13 - No one sent in an author. We show in Winners. Today's winners: Armenak and Alex $10 each, both sent the same solution. Damian otherwise finished third, $5. Congratulations
Top78 Saturday 6 - The task from the previous Top tournament. New position. Who will find our variant? - We can't believe it, but Armenak sent an authorial solution. A big round of applause! And $50, of course. Important.  See the Top78 game in Winners. The position after 20 moves. On the 22nd move black could have taken a rook or a bishop. After taking the bishop white would have been left without compensation for the lost figure. However, the computer, following mathematical logic (rook 5 points, bishop 3), took the rook. In his excuse we can say, that at this moment white's mate combination was not visible for him. --- White was obviously taking a risk, but in Top 77 you can see the same game won convincingly.

From position after 13 moves we played 14.Nf3 f6, 15.B:f5 ef and then 16.Rfe1 Bc5. It is last, today's position. Yesterday Cuban Grandmaster Vidal reached this position, but played the Grandmaster's move, simple and effective 17.Ng5, after which blacks have no chance to defend their position. From the point of view of practical, tournament chess, the 17.Ng5 movement is stronger than ours. But we were carried away by the Talovian fantasy to finish the game effectively and we played 17.Re5. Of course, if the blacks don't accept the rook's sacrifice, the game will take longer, but after consuming the rook, what the blacks do, the game is childishly easy to win. Check this out. The solution in -Winners-Top.

Win Faster Results
Current score: Goldchess - World Players 8:8 (in games 32:32) - great draw!

After pause - Win Faster17 December 19
Who wins?
In Win Faster 17, December 19, there were specific tasks with the last move described. Nobody won any of them a move earlier than us. And that's what Win Faster is all about. It seems that this was the most difficult edition so far. Only Armenak repeated our variant in solution 4. We invite ambitious chess players who want to shorten the amateur's solutions to the January edition of Win Faster.


Win Faster 15,16 May 16 - And again a 2:2 draw... Tasks 1 - 4 were beyond the reach of the players. Pawel won the move earlier 2 games, 2 and 3. As there was no minimum of players, the prize is symbolic, $20. Pawel won the move earlier 2 games, 2 and 3. As there was no minimum of players, the prize is symbolic, $20. Congratulations

Win Faster 14 May 9 - We want to win! No. Today the draw 2:2. Games 1 and 3 nobody won faster. Armenak sent 2 faster solutions.  But, task 2 we do not recognize. He sent mate 36, and we shortened his solution by a move. However, it must be said that he found a beautiful move here Bg8. In task 3 he used a flawless technique and won the move faster. We show his solution and our variant. Prize, entry fee to Win Faster 15

Win Faster 13 May 2 - Last time our amateur lost 0:4. We make no secret that today we want the opposite result. But no. Armenak won by a move faster in tasks 3 and 4. A 2:2 draw. Big applause for the Armenian chess virtuoso. In Goldchess you just have to show that you can play chess. Great news. After tournament Armenak found the solution 1 move faster in 1st task! So a draw, but with Armenak as the winner

Win Faster 12 April 18 - 0:4. Total victory for the players. All 4 games were winnable faster! Yuri didn't play, probably had poor internet, which often happens in Cuba. However, Armenak -Armenia and Damian Poland, provided cosmic emotions today. Task 1: First Armenak, mate 25, already a move earlier. Second Damian, missed mate 23 by playing 20.Q:f6, instead of 20.Qg7. This was discovered by Armenak in the 4th solution and he is the winner here. Ufff, it started badly for Goldchess. Task 2: They both easily found a variant that was a move faster, but Armenak was first. Will Armenak win the main prize today?

Task 3 and 4 from one position will decide. Win and mate, 5 and 7 moves to do. This is handled beautifully by Damian, finding a brilliant move 40.Nd8 in the position. This is followed by a win on 43, a move faster and a mate on 44, 2 moves faster. The amateur is taken away for resuscitation, a heart attack. :)

Armenak did not discover these variants but also sent a good solution as fourth, mate 45, move faster. A great day for the players. Both $75. Congratulations! I called the hospital, the amateur is alive, so the next Win Faster tournament will take place.

Win Faster 11 April 11 - The top 2 Goldchess players failed to beat the amateur today and win the move earlier today. Also no one sent 4 solutions for which we have an extra prize. Task 1, Yuri sent the author's. Bravo! Task 2, Armenak v25, but without winning the queen. However, no one sent task 3, mate30 without getting a queen. However, it was easier to win this position with capturing the queen. With capture we have 2 solutions, Armenak and Yuri, and ours is another. And interestingly, after time Yuri sent mate in 29, with capturing queen, a move earlier. But the solution is highly controversial, because in the test the computer twice played us differently, preventing such a solution as Yuri sent.

So 1:0 (4:0) for the amateur, and from a tie in the overall score we go into the lead. We thank our champions for a great game.

Win Faster 10 April 4 - Today  3:1 in games. Armenak solved 4th task! He receive $30 prize. In task 2 Armenak and Damian did win a move faster, but without fulfilling the condition of capturing the queen. We distinguish Armenak's game in task 4, mate with queen sacrifice. He receive an entry fee to Win Faster 11. Thank you all for the playing.

Win Faster 9 March 21 - We are beginning to believe in our amateur. Only in the second task did he manage to beat him. This was done by Damian Sliwicki and he becomes the hero of today's tournament.

Task 1, nobody sent any solution. After 58 minutes Armenak sent a mate in 26, but without winning a queen. It turns out that this was a very difficult task for the players, although we think that only from level 3-4. In our match 1:0 for Goldchess.

Thank you all for your participation and we invite you to Free Win Faster on Sunday, March 28, exactly one week from today. The prize pool is $5,000, but be warned, it's going to be tough.


Win Faster 8 March 14 - Our amateur said: in win Faster 8 nobody wins any game faster than me. The tournament is today, in an hour, we will see if it is a boast and the players will win 4 games faster like in WF7, or if it is true this time. At this point nobody knows. --------- Results - Powerful emotions.
After the tournament we can say that the truth is in the middle. In the first game of the solution move earlier sent Armenak and Damian, but without getting the queen, so no. The second game, Armenak, move earlier, bravo and $30. The third game no one sent, in the fourth game Damian sent the author, that is in the same number of moves. But, after the tournament Armenak proved that it was possible to win the move earlier fourth game! Big applause for the champion! In view of this, in match points we consider today's 8th edition a draw, 2:2.  

Win Faster 7 March 7. In this tournament the players won all the games faster. Great victory for the players from Armenia! Just a hair away from the top prize $1000. Armenak was first to win 3 games, $250 plus 15 rating points, Alex was first in one game, $30 plus 5 rating points. Big congratulations. 1:0 for players. What will happen in the next edition?


Win Faster 6 - February 21. $1000 prize pool. The great excitement of the 6th edition is behind us. Today the players have won. A big match point for players.
Only in the first game no one managed to win faster.  In game 2, first Armenak, won in 20, second Alex, he won faster, in 19 moves. That's pity, it is late.  In game 3 first Armenak, 4 moves faster than us, in game 4 first Alex. Armenak $73, Alex $30. Congratulations to the winners. 

Win Faster 5 - February 14. $1000 prize pool. Who will win? 5th edition of Win Faster is over. However, it is possible to win faster and Armenak showed that. Armenak won faster in 3 games. However, in the first incorrectly, we do not score, in the third correctly, a move earlier, in the fourth 2 moves earlier, but 5 minutes after the time. Hence the prize for only one correct solution. Only the second game could not have been won faster. After 43 minutes Armenak sent a mate in 32, the same number of moves as we did.

We invite you next week. Today amateur - rest of the world, 1:0. :)

Win Faster 4 - January 17. $1000 prize pool. Goldchess victory. In the required time nobody sent the solutions of winning a move earlier. In task 1 and 3 Armenak won the move earlier. But, after the time (task 1 his time 11:43, it was 10 minutes, task 3, his time 18:56, it was 15 minutes.). However, we will award half of the prize, $30. If he had sent in the time allowed, he would have won $150 today. In task 2 CEEC did not let himself be defeated a move earlier.
2 days after the tournament Armenak found winning move faster in task 2, the tournament Win Faster 4. So it turns out that all tasks could be won move faster and win the top prize, $1000!  A big applause for our best player from Armenia.
 
Win Faster 3 - January 10 - Tournament postponed to next Sunday, January 17.
Win Faster 2 - January 1st - who will win? There were four moves in the last Daily task. Players won in two, 2 moves earlier. In Top, they also won 1 move earlier, and the mate - 2 moves earlier. We see the future of Win Faster game for Goldchess in black. We think we're gonna go bankrupt. sad A New Year's tasks without conditions. Beat, kill, win as soon as possible. laugh Today positions from the previous Win Faster 1 game. No conditions, just win move faster. Who won faster?. Game 1, 2, 3. WOW! No one has solved any problem. 3:0 for Goldchess, and in big points after two editions, a draw. We are happy, but also sad.
And, because today is the New Year, we give the participants of the tournament a second chance.  The first one who sends in 3 original solutions wins the New Year's prize of $50! Time to resolve, 24 hours.
During the tournament no one sent any solution faster than us. But in overtime, with virtually unlimited time, the players have shown what they can do. $50 was won by Armenak, who sent a task 1 move faster and tasks 2 and 3, two moves faster. If he had sent this set during the tournament, he would have won the main prize of $1000. Great congratulations. The Armenak's solutions in -Winners.

===================================
Win Faster 1 - Christmas 2nd Day 2020 year
December 25, Friday - 1 Edition of Win Faster is behind us. Next in the New Year. We were not to open the game for less than 5 players. But for creative chess players from Armenia, the tournament was worthwhile. Game 1 - first and good solution, 3 moves faster, Arman Ghevondyan. Alex, the same solution, 3 seconds later!! Game 2, was later, because was the date fault. Winner - Alex Nurijanyan. A brilliant solution, m32 by Arman, but after time. We show it in Winners.Task 3 at the given time no one sent. After time, the first correct, v37 by Armenak, half the prize. All rest players sent mate. I would like to remind you that the content of task 3 was - winning in 43 with the queen's sacrifice, not mate. In this tournament, Goldchess versus chess players of the whole world, there is 2:1 for  players sad

Free Win Faster Results
Announcement
The Free Win Faster tournament with a grand prize of $5,000 will be every month. This is our intention. Provided there is always a minimum of 200 chess players. So we appeal to the already registered players, if you see that there are not 200 participants, appeal to your colleagues, let them also register and play.


Free Win Faster tournament-level V with the grand prize of $5000!
Current score: Goldchess - World Players 3:1 (in games 8:4)


4th Edition - December 25 from June 26. We have postponed the tournament to 25 December. Normally it would have been every month but since there are not 200 players (they can't get together for a few months), we postponed to a distant date. Besides, those who have signed up and are on the list are mostly statisticians who have not yet played anywhere with us and are without prize entitlement if they win. And if 200 participants do not gather by December, we will close this tournament.

4th Edition - May 29. You want to play regularly every month, invite your colleagues. In order for a tournament to take place, there must always be a minimum of 200 participants.
Currently we have removed from our list players who signed up "off the street". That is, players who have not played in any of our tournaments or diagrams before, and who have not sent in any solution to prove their level. 

4th Edition - March 27, 2022 (for a minimum of 200 full-fledged players). Tournament postponed until next month due to poor turnout. We set a modest minimum for this tournament, 200 full participants.  There are over 50 million chess players in the online space, so if there aren't 200 here, we think it's not our problem, but the chess players themselves.
 


3rd Edition - June 27 - On 27 June the tournament will take place regardless of the number of participants. Ufffffff, the great excitement is behind us. However, chess is unpredictable. In the first game, the 13-year-old from Uzbekistan Жавохир Артиков knocked out Goldchess. From the position after 20 moves we were draw in 28, he drew in 24, 4 moves faster. Armenak drew 27, Damian drew 26. After time Armenak also found a draw of 24.

In game 2 only one solution, Damian's, a move later than us and after time. In task 3 Armenak shone. From position 25 we had a win in 29, only 4 moves. It turns out that also here it was possible to win faster. Armenak won in 27, making only 2 moves. In games 3,4 Damian sent both solutions exactly ours. Distinction. Overall in games draw 2:2. Winners Zawo (Жавохир) and Armenak, $25 each. Congratulations and thank you for beautiful solutions.
We invite you to Win Faster, July 4, entry fee $11, prize pool $1000.

May30 - Only 61 players on the list today, so we will move the tournament date to June 27.
At the same time, we do not understand why chess players who have not played and won even in Daily 24, a level II tournament, signed up for the Free Win Faster (level V) tournament. As extras-statisticians?

April 25 - As of April 23 we have 22 participants on the tournament list. Due to this low number of players we will not be running a free tournament with a $5000 prize pool on the scheduled date of 25 April. The tournament will only run when we have 100 players signed up.


2nd Edition - March28

Before the tournament
IN THIS EDITION NO ONE WILL WIN ANY GAME A MOVE EARLIER THAN ME<<< Sorry, this entry was made by our amateur as I stepped away from the computer to brew myself a coffee. But, if he wrote it, I am announcing an extra prize before the tournament. $50 for the player who solves all 4 problems in as many moves as we do, with no condition - move earlier. V level, but this is also fun, so I also increase the time to solve the tasks. 1 game - 15 minutes, 2 - 15, 3+4 - 25 minutes.
Good luck
After the tournament
Great FWF Hero is Damarka who solved correct 3rd problem. $25 and great congrat! 
There was also an additional $50 prize for sending in 4 of our solutions, but no one solved the 4 problems like we did. This prize goes to the next edition in April 25.

Game 1 - 1 solution by Damian, 2 moves later.
Game 2 - 4 solutions, all not correct. Arman and Yuri have sent m32, move faster, but without the queen's capture 
Game 3 - 4 solutions, only Damarka has sent correct, $25!
Game 4 - nobody has sent, nobody solved the 4th problem


In the games 3:1 for Goldchess. However, the Win Faster tournament, level IV, is easier. We will show our solutions, except 4th.
We invite all players on the last Sunday of next month.

1st Edition - February28. A long, hard way to win $5000! Emotion, emotion, emotion. 1 Edition finished.

A beautiful test of players' skills and possibilities of Goldchess.
Task 1.
Only 2 solutions. Arman was the first to send exactly our solution, a truly beautiful variant. The second, Armenak, his own, but without capturing the queen. Nobody sent a move earlier. In this game it was probably impossible to win the move earlier.
 
Task 2.
First Arman, a move... later. Second Damian, bravo Poland!Another mate, but also a move later, in 25th, so for the prize was 2 moves too many.
 
Task 3, mate 21.
First, Armenak, mate22, move too late. Second Arman, honorable mention - entry into Saturday's Top24, for a very nice solution, mate 21, in as many moves as we did. Ours is just as beautiful, we'll show.
 
Task 4 - a breakthrough here. This game was won a move earlier, It is won by Sargis who sent first, before Arman.  
 
In conclusion, the players have won a move earlier only one game. And only Armenia and Poland. The chess players from India did not breathe at all. All those who did not manage to win any task, we invite them to learn in our tournaments and Training Box.

Results
Daily free + Goldchess Challenge
for paid and free players together.


Challenge 140 October 1 (tournament moved. We are waiting for 20 players)

Daily 278 September 24 - October 1

Daily 277 September 17-24. The task was - mate in 23, 4 moves to make. The idea was to play Bb4+. Had CEEC defended more strongly, after 21....c5, 22.N:c5 mate is in the 25th move. This mate would also have been recognised. Arman sent in win and after time. We invite to the next Daily. Open all week.

Daily 276 September 10-17. The winner was once again Arman Ghevondyan Armenia. Congratulations

Daily 275 September 3-10. The undisputed winner is Arman. He sent our solution, and his own by a move faster and a class better (time 1:58). We see and admit, we overlooked a beautiful move (35th B:f7), and chess players who can improve our solutions, and in a brilliant way, are really good chess players. This game will be placed in the Most beautiful games of Goldchess. Congratulations. Plus the prize, $5.

Challenge 140 - September 10. Tournament postponed from September 3.

Daily 274 September 3. There is only one way to win in this task. Our variant. Found it...Arman!. There were only seven moves to make. Only Arman Ghevondyan solved and he is the winner. His time of 7.5 minutes. Congratulations. See how you should have played -Winners Chess Miracles.

Daily 273 August 20-27. Report: Task - mate in the 38th move. Position after 30 moves, our first move is 31.Kg2. CEEC then plays 31.... g6 or 31... Rd7. In both cases there is a mate in the 38th move. No one has sent a correct solution. Arman mate move later, Pawel sent the win. We invite to next Daily.

Daily 272 August 13-20. The problem was solved only by Pawel Jaworski, but after time. The task was simple. The computer 'took a nap' and white took advantage of this. See the solution.

Daily271. Our variant of the mate in the 34th move is with the capture of the queen and with a knight. But we didn't announce these conditions because the Daily is a fun tournament. Arman was the first to send mate 31, the most played variant, Sahak tried to find our variant in the 34th move. We will therefore divide the prize of $2.5 each between the two players. They are from one country, so they will share. Congratulations


Challenge 140 - August 20.  Tournament postponed 2 times due to lack of players. Or maybe chess players are afraid of the positions from Aronian's games? Unnecessarily, because with us you do not play them with Aronian, but with our educational computer.

Challenge 139 - July 23. Nobody has solved.
 
Challenge 138-July 2. For technical reasons, the tournament did not take place. Please join us for the next one on 9 July
 
Challenge 137, June 25. Nobody has solved it. We are showing our solutions, how the game should have been played. Next Challenge 138 - discounted tasks. Please visit

Challenge 134 - May 14.

Challenge 133 - May 7. Nobody solved 3 tasks, no winner.

Challenge 130 - An instructive game with one position after 18 moves. Goldchess games are more interesting than 90% of tournament games, in traditional tournaments. There, the only rule is, to win. In ours, win, but win beautifully. Win 24, (6 moves), mate 26 with capture and sacrifice of the queen, and mate 28, the opposite, with sacrifice and capture. There is no winner, we show our solutions.

Supplementary comment.

Only one person from Poland played in the Challenge 130 tournament (April 2), in support of the struggling Ukraine. One person in the tournament of support is a national and chess defeat. A compromise of the Polish chess world, something very reprehensible.

After this tournament a decision to close the Polish Goldchess website matures in us. Most probably still this year. Polish chess players gave an anti-national stain and we think that they do not deserve to learn and play in our country. The more so as Goldchess is Polish know-how and a Polish product, underestimated by them for 10 years, because this is how long we have existed.

Challenge 130 March 26. The tournament did not take place due to low number of players.
 
Challenge 129 - March 19. No one has sent the correct solution. We show how it should have been played.
Challenge 129 - March 12. Tournament of support for the fighting Ukraine. Due to low number of players and lack of support for our idea, the tournament was postponed. What is the reason, whether chess players are totally apolitical, insensitive or even fearful, we have no idea. It's a pity, because support here is just a typical, good action, independent of all world views.

Challenge 129 - March 5. Tournament of support for the fighting Ukraine. Special games, created during the on-going war.
We have received virtually no support from chess players for the struggling Ukraine. We cannot believe that this has happened.
We thought and were sure that thousands of chess players would come to declare their support. However, this did not happen.
In this situation the tournament did not take place and is moved to next week, on March 12. You have the chance to change this.

Challenge 128 - February 19 - Lack of correct solutions

Challenge 126 - February 5 - Game 1 nobody has sent a solution.  Armenak was late on the 1st task and started on the 2nd. But he sent the correct solution to task 1 after the time. Games 2 and 3 from one position. Armenak found another way to win and mate, 27.c4. With this the win was achieved a move earlier. Prize, entry fee for Challenge 127.

Challenge125 - January29 - No one has won 3 games in the manner stated. After time Armenak sent a nice solution. We will show it. In task 2 Damian shone, who sent a mate with capturing queen move earlier, and Armenak sent a mate 25 with sacrificing queen. Both solutions were outstanding and we will put them in the folder -the Most Beautiful Goldchess games. 

In task 3 Damian and Armenak sent a draw 3 moves earlier than our variant. Congratulations 

Challenge 124 - January 8-15
Today's winner is Armenak, $10. We will show his mate 23, a move earlier from us. Position after 14 moves. See

Challenge 123 - January 1st

Game 10.

Learning logic.  Only Armenak passed the exam. Author's solution.

Game 11.1

Armenak only. 2 moves earlier from us.

Game 11.2

2 players sent in the solutions. Variant from the 32nd move. In Armenak's solution winning on the 52nd move, the computer plays after 33.Kh1, Nf3. But after 33. ...Rd6 white loses.  Therefore the variant is weak. Pawel Jaworski sent in winning in the 55th move. 33.R:f1. Nepomniachtchi's move. But the idea of Goldchess is different. See.

Today the winner is Armenak, $15 prize. Congrat.

Games 10, 11 comments

Game 10
The idea of queens exchange. In the white game this is almost a mistake (see also game 4). The lack of a queen severely weakens the attack, and white is after all the colour of the first move. Therefore in this game our idea was to protect the white queen from exchange. And it worked out well for white. Winning 22 move with capturing the queen, mate 23 and draw 23. Of course wins are easier to get here, because CEEC doesn't have the playing strength of Carlsen or Nepo, but he plays correctly, according to chess rules. Like 90% of chess players. And for them our games are exemplary.

Game 11.1
After 11 games we can only say: this is no longer a match. It is a slaughter. See how we won the 11th game with white. The key is 15.Sd5! It's a pity Nepo didn't see it and played 15.Wad1, a move without deep sense and concrete plan.

Game 11.2
Second chance for Nepo to win this game.
The game has a so-called second bottom, second face, won by white from the position after black's 32nd move. Nepo plays stiff, hopeless 33.R:f1. We play the fine 33.Kf2. This is a trap. If black now plays the reflexive, mechanical 33...Nc2, saving the knight, he has lost the game, because 34.ec7 follows. See also this our version of game 11.


Challenge 122 - December 25

Game 7. Vitaly won on move 33 because the computer played the other 22 move. Armenak, who sent in his solution after time, won on move 38 in a different way. To us there is a different idea of winning in our solution.

Game 8. Armenak wins the move faster.

Game 9. Other game techniques and Armenak wins in 26th move, 3 moves faster. Vitaly sent v30 (after time).
There is no winner who sent 3 solutions. Armenak 2, Vitaly one. According to the rules, players won only 30% of the prize pool. But as the pool is small, we will deviate from the rules and divide it all. Armenak $15, Vitaly $5. Congrat

Comments

Game 7
In the match a draw, in ours a straight win on move 33-38, after exchanging queens.

Nepo did not see the counter chance hidden in this position. He played a seemingly strong 22. de5, which after a series of schematic exchanges gave a draw position. We have a different vision of attacking and winning. Discover it for yourself.

The match between Carlsen and Nepo is a match between two of the best chess players in the world. It might seem that nothing can be improved here. But it turns out that you can. You have concrete examples of this in our versions of the champions' games.

Game 8
A draw game, and Carlsen outplayed Nepo at the end like a kid with a ranking of 1000. 28... Qa5? Qd5 should have been played ruthlessly, still giving a draw chance. In general after this game the match became ridiculous. In our case black won on move 39-40, from the position after move 24.

Game 9

In game 9 we achieved a draw without any problems. A draw at move 31 in the play version, when CEEC makes the mistake of beating the a1 rook, and a draw at move 32 in the serious version.

Could Nepo have won this game? Of course. We have a win in 26-29 and a mate on move 31 with the capture of the queen.

Goldchess Challenge - May 23
Report
Edition 5. 3 mates in 33 moves from one position. Simple tasks.
Task 1. First Damian, second Alex. They both sent the same solution, mates to get all the figures. We don't recognize it, because it's solution number 3. Here, of course, it's possible to get mat 32, but not Qg7, just the Rg8. We'll show you it in the Winner. The third solution, Alicia Sliwicka and she wins here.

Task 2. 33.Hd8#. Nobody sent it. $0. We'll show it in Winners.

Task 3. Mate 33, to get the all black pieces (except pawns of course). Damian and Alex did this solution in first task. But here's where Paweł Jaworski first sent in and he wins. And, record, his time 48 seconds.
Congratulations to the winners and welcome to the next edition.

Task 3 again, first Damian. But not that solution. He sent a mate in 25, and we had to make a win, getting the hetman. Second Armenak again, but he's got class! Move by move, it duplicated our thinking. The original solution. We're happy to award, $75. Total Damian $50, Armenak $25 + $75=$100.

Poland Challenge - free, April 25th, 16:00
Report

A strange thing happened in the Poland Challenge tournament. A lot of players were taking positions from the previous tournament by inattention. Arman, a talented player from Armenia, who sent the first 2 solutions in task 1.  The correct solution, winning in 20 moves, was not sent by anyone.

Task 2, First Damian, sent a position instead of a solution. Second Alicja Śliwicka, correct solution, only... another variant and mate 3 moves faster than us! And she wins here. Congratulations. Solution 3 and 4, Arman, positions and solutions from the previous tournament. But, there is still a solution 5, Veronica, 12 years old, also mate in the 19th. We will reward the 12-year-old with an additional prize of 100 PLN. Big applause!

Task 3. one solution after the time, 10:23, sent by Arman Gevondyan , but incorrect, from a bad position from the previous tournament.

We do not understand how players could download from -My account, positions from previous tournament. We checked, the positions from the Poland Challenge are displayed correctly.
We invite you to the free Goldchess Challenge next Saturday, this time at 16:00.
The prize pool is always the same, $150.

Goldchess Challenge April 18

Tasks from the Skawiński - Łukasz Luba game. Lukasz tried to use the Goldchess style, but he confused the order of moves and lost. Here we show the winning variants.  We play blacks.
Task 1 - win in 35, position after 30 moves. Only 6 moves to go. The exact author's solution was sent by Damian Śliwicki. Time 6 minutes. Congratulations.
Task 2, mate 39 from the same position.  
Task 3, win on  move 39.
Tasks 2 and 3, no one sent a solution.
We show 3 solutions in Winners-Tournaments-Challenges.
============================================

In our tournaments, you play from a given position vs. the educational CEEC computer.
Specially for chess-playing friends of Patricia Claros Aguilar. Start April 20 at 16:00 CET. 
It is the year 1894. Steinitz, playing as White, loses a game to Lasker. At Goldchess we have won it. In the Tournament we have presented 3 instructive tasks showing how to win this game. Of course, the participants are expected to win in the way specified by us.

Gold World Challenge Tournament rules. Registration until 11 April - sign up today, on April 11-17th pay entry fee

The basic prize pool is US$ 1,000. Its amount depends on the number of participants and may be higher. If there are 500 contenders, the prize pool will amount to US$5,000. The Tournament includes three chess problems that need to be solved, and the prizes from the basic pool are as follows: US$ 250 for problem No. 1, US$ 250 for problem No. 2, and US$500 for problem No. 3.
50% of each prize goes to the winner who is the first to submit a correct solution to a problem. As it is Patricia Claros Aguilar Tournament, the other 50% of each prize is earmarked for 1-3 winners from Latin American countries who are the first representatives of their countries to send in correct solutions within the specified time limit. (The time limits for solving the problems are as follows: 9 minutes for problem No. 1, 9 minutes for problem No. 2 and 10 minutes for the problem No. 3). The first problem is the easiest one, as it requires only 7 moves. The amounts of prizes reflect the difficulty levels of particular problems.

Apart from the rules specified above, the relevant provisions of the Goldchess Rules, as well as regulations applicable to other Goldchess tournaments apply to the Gold World Challenge Tournament.
The Gold World Challenge tournament will be held as a guest event in the National Challenge tournament. And for this tournament you have to pay an entry fee.

September 3 
Out of more than 30 participants in the recent Chess Wonders Competition, only two sent in solutions. What does that mean? That the tasks are difficult? No, our tasks are not difficult because they are made by an amateur chess player with no ranking. Only that he uses techniques unknown to modern chess. So chess knowledge doesn't help, Stockfish with his 3500 ELO, worthless here, won't help either. The problem, I think, is that it does not occur to those playing with us at all that it is possible to play chess like this. Our ways of playing, of running an attack, are different from today's chess as performed by modern chess players, even the best ones. That's why you have to get to know them, play and train with us. This will have good results. You will raise your level.
 

August 27 (postponed)

Mechanical chess
We were taken aback by the number of losses Duda lost at FTX Miami, but it turns out there's nothing to worry about. It's a fast and instant chess tournament where you have to make a move faster than you think. Robot chess. We are strong opponents of such tournaments, undermining the level of chess, where emotion reigns and reflexes decide. The games are worthless (most of this is chess spam), and such tournaments and games are simply a waste of time and a weakening of the intellect for chess players. We are only surprised that the best take part in them, who should show good chess to the little ones. Such chess games of 3-5 minutes may be good if two want to play for money. Which we also strongly disapprove of. Chess is not gambling.

August 22

Duda's playing has stopped impressing us. After his fourth loss at FTX Miami he was promoted to international punching boy with us. In his losing games we found better game plans and winning continuations. So the losses are a matter not only of form but also of style, of the way he plays, of his thinking on the chessboard. All this is up for a big improvement. We are extending a helping hand. Come to our Training Box to complete your chess education.
ps. As of today (20-08), Duda has 12 games lost but, 4 wins against Carlsen alone.

News August 11

At Goldchess, we focus on beauty. We also try to make our solutions the fastest, so that a position cannot be won faster than us, but that comes second. Therefore, it can always happen that a player sends a faster solution other than ours. Perhaps he made it himself, or perhaps a strong computer helped him. This is why we approach such solutions with caution and may not reward them at all, as we do not reward computers. As a rule, however, we reward such parties with a prize of up to 50% of the predicted one. But only when we know the player and are not so much sure as slightly convinced that he played independently.
And as for the computers, the player who bets on playing Goldchess with their help will very quickly find that he will not win. Strong computers will not help him because they cannot see our solutions. It is not yet this generation of chess computers. Goldchess is, in a sense, in the 22nd century.

News June 22

The relativity of chess, winning losing
In Goldchess we take chess seriously. But to the games themselves more playfully, because we recognise that sometimes the defending position of our educational computer will play weaker, so that we can win, and at the same time there is a downside, because the game is not so-called "rigid", i.e. without mistake. But this is not the end of the world, because the same thing happens in tournament games and that includes top chess players. We have examples and evidence of this from tournaments where the best play and also from world championship matches. All it takes is to take a winning game back a dozen moves, change a move and it can turn from a win into a loss. And this is what we do in Goldchess. Using examples of losing games of great champions, we show in Goldchess how they could have been won.
 
News - July 22
If Carlsen does not defend his title, there will be a Nepomniachtchi - Ding Liren world championship match.
Should Ding Liren become world champion ...
It would indeed be an intellectual breakthrough, (second only to breaking the Russian hegemony) if a Chinese player became world champion. And he would undoubtedly have contributed to the great development of chess in the world and among the Chinese. We evaluate positively.
 
News - July 20
Through the eyes of Goldchess
Magnus Carlsen has announced that he will not defend his world title because he has no motivation. This decision by the world champion should be respected. However, the question is - why? Is there a dispute with FIDE, or is the prize money not high enough, a few million dollars? If so, then Carlsen is of course right, the prize pool must be satisfactory for the world champion.
But it is probably the case that he considered only Firousia as a worthy opponent. After all, he announced earlier that if Firousia did not win the candidates' match, he would not defend the title.
ps.
If FIDE, for lack of other options, makes a world championship match between Nepomniachtchi and Ding Liren, then in the history of chess the winner will only be the alternate world champion, or the candidate champion.

GT September 11 - $25 prize. No one has solved

GT August 14. Genius Test August competition $10 prize

In the August Goldchess - Genius Test competition on 14 August, a position from the Rapport-Nepomniachtchi game from the Candidates Tournament, lost by white. 
Task from the position after 22 moves when CEEC played 22...Na6. The solution is not exactly of the "genius" type, but certainly interesting. Only 4 moves to do, but it's not that super easy or super simple. 
Report from today's Genius Test competition: as I wrote earlier, only 4 moves to do, but it wasn't that easy. Out of 10 solutions submitted only one was correct, winning in the 26th move. The others in 27, in 28 etc. And another peculiarity. A win in the 26th move was sent by Sahak Petrosyan from Armenia. There were only 4 moves and his solution is different to ours. That is, with 4 moves there are 2 solutions. This is amazing. We thought our solution was the only possible way to win in 26 moves. Congratulations to the winner and thanks to the others for participating in our competition.
In the 'live'diagram our solution.
GT July 17. The task was win on move 45, prize $10. Time to solve 10 minutes. No one has solved our task. Although we didn't write exactly what it was about, but as it's a genius contest, it's clear that it's either about sacrificing the queen or a brilliant move after which the computer gives up. 
Today was a two-in-one, because both a brilliant move and a queen sacrifice. See our solution.

GT June 12 - There were only 5 moves to make in the competition. Armenak sent his solution, but it lacks the genius style, the brilliant move. Therefore there is no winner. We show both solutions, Armenak's and ours. Naext. Today, June 17, Armenak sent in solution in 3 moves!
GT May 15 - with capture and sacrifice the queen. 2 solutions, both after time.

GT April 24. No one has solved. We show the correct solution. (in -Winners-)

Nobody sent in the time given. Armenak sent 2 (effective) mats in 28 and even in 27, but neither of them is a genius solution. Who will find our variant? Besides, we have a feeling that apart from Armenak and literally a few other chess players we are surrounded by thousands of chess weaklings who can't do anything in chess. There is a Training box, you are welcome to learn, and if not, by the end of the year the inactive ones will be banned and removed from the list of registered users. In their place we will invite thousands of real, live chess players. Goldchess is great fun, but not for beginners.

GT March. 2 virtuosos from Armenia and Poland have sent in their solutions. Both after time. Armenak correctly, Pawel inversely, first capturing and then sacrificing the hetman. We divided the prize though, Armenak $15, Pawel $10. Congratulations

GT February. 2 winners: Armenak, $15, Pawel Jaworski $5. Congrat

GT January

We have two winners. First Arman, a witty solution, because the mate was already in the 29th move and white did not have to sacrifice the queen. But they sacrificed fancifully, according to the content of the task. Second Hayk, capture, sacrifice and mate with a pawn. Both $10. Congratulations. We also show our solution.

2021-11-07

Important
GT November (open)
Check your possibilities. The solution is in Winners-Genius Test.

GT November (7-11-2021)- The emotions of the November Genius Test competition are behind us. The winner was Damian Sliwicki, who sent the first correct solution, his time, 2 minutes. Second Hayk Yeritsyan, Armenia, time 8 minutes, also original solution. Third Armenak. Prizes: Damian $50, Hayk $25, Armenak, $25. Plus all three, Goldchess Genius titles. Congratulations.

2019-07-09

September 2021
Only one player solved. Arman Ghevondyan, Armenia. He is great! See the solution in Winners.
 

Genius Test - July. Here is the solution. Pay attention to its style and quality. Goldchess involves iron logic of chess and playing identical with or very similar to tournament chess. This game, starting from the given position, could be played in any chess tournament. Mate in 26 moves, with the queen sacrificed and captured. We present also our solution No. 2, which is reverse mate in 27 moves, with the queen captured and sacrificed.  Take a look.

Comments. Position after 15 moves.

Goldchess is an outstanding form of chess, ideal for learning how to play. You can freely undo moves and look for other possibilities, choosing the best ones. In this game, you can play several variants and quickly work out that in this position the key black piece is the knight well positioned on g4, which defends e5 and the f4-b8 diagonal. So, how can it be eliminated? In a very straightforward way,

16.h3 Nh6 –  the knight can move only in one way, after 15… Ne5, 16.Bf4 the black would lose a pawn. But how should the black queen be attacked now with tempo? This is the         Genius variant, so the solution is also simple. Sacrifice the knight.

17.N:d4 ed4

18.Bf4! Qa5  continued attack with tempo

19.b4! Q:a2

20.b5 N:f5     Black captures the pawn in order to subsequently shield itself with the knight on d6

21.bc6            Wb8# mate is imminent

21…. Nd6

22.c5 Rde8    the computer defends e7 against white pawn marching after knight capture on d6.

                        And here is the brilliant point of this combination.

23.Qb5!!! N:b5 a beautiful sacrifice of the queen. Black must capture. Mate on b8 was imminent

24.R:b4          inevitable mate on b8 , with the rook

24…. Qb2      an act of despair

But the day did not end there. In the drawing for the US$ 100 prize among 10 correct solutions of the August Genius Test the winning number was 5. Whose number was that? Łukasz Łuba’s, of course.

An awesome day and incredible lucky series of Łukasz. We wish all our players had a day like that!

There is a problem which may even require an arbitration. A player has submitted a beautiful solution for the Genius Test. Yet, it is not a proper solution, as it is a checkmate and not a victory, and a wrong variant, although the conditions, which included first capturing and then sacrificing the queen, have been met. Furthermore, to put it mildly, CEEC's 27th move in our test is 27. ...Rxf6, and not 27. ...Kg7, as in the player's version. So, the solution cannot be acknowledged, but let's examine it closely.

Task for October is extremely tricky. I could not find the solution in 28 movements but only 29 movements. Yet I think my solution is nice and that is why I am sharing it with you by mail.

This is what the winner of May version of Genius Test, Kristian Jacek, who is very talented chess player with an official ranking of 2165  (due to not playing too much), but in reality with a ranking 2400, had to say about us:
 
goldchess.com portal offers a variety of interesting chess games and problems. One of them is Genius Test, which is free with a large prize fund. The problem that was posted in May was nothing that I expected. Wb1 move was a beautiful move that used an overload motive, which shows the beautiful, deep nature of Chess. It is very nice to discover this nature. The best examples of this tactics are known people in chess community, such as Michaił Tal who gave up half of his figures just mate with the last ones! There is also Robert Fischer who is known as „Wonderful Child” because of his chess talent by which he outran his times.
I recommend for you to get to know those people and watch their best chess games, they are simply amazing. They will also bring your skills up, so it will be easier for you to solve chess problems in Genius test and Goldchess problems in general, as we admire beauty in chess.
In the end, I would like to thank goldchess.com portal that it arise for us - chess players, and for opportunity to solve such a beautiful chess problems.

In Chess Miracles the winner is the first player, or we draw, or the best solution wins. Solutions are in -Winners-Chess Miracles.
Here we present the losing games of the champions and show how they could have been won.  
It's a learning and experience you won't get anywhere else.

Your sparring partner who defends the match positions is our CEEC computer. The participants' task is to win each game according to the given conditions. If no one solves in the time given, the whole weekend (of CET time) goes into overtime. No time limit and with a smaller prize. 

 Candidates Tournament in brilliant Goldchess version (from July 2)

September 24. Rapport-Duda game (1-0). No one sent a solution.

September 17. Chess Miracles Contest in the Challenge tournament. The position from the Nepomniachtchi-Firouzia game, which Firouzia lost. In the competition it should have been won in the 40th move playing black. No one solved it.

Setember 10. From Saint Louis Rapid & Blitz 2022. Position from the Shankland-Xiong game. A very beautiful Goldchess win, a $50 prize task. No one won this position with our computer or the prize.

September 3. The Firouzia-Caruana game (0-1) from the Saint Louis Rapid & Blitz (2022). From this position the winning variant can be played with a weaker chess player, the draw variant with a stronger one. 3 tasks. Level 5, winning in 28 moves. At level 23 there are 3 possible draw options. A 33 (weak) draw, no. Only a draw on move 35, forceful in 10 moves, plus a draw on move 40 (41), forceful in 10 moves. For the draw task, switch CEEC to level 23. (Play-Option-Strengh-23 Level).
Report: No one has sent 3 correct solutions. We are moving the prize in full to the next competition. So on 10 September the Shankland-Xiong game with a prize of $50!

August 27 Task from Carlsen-Niemann game. We always associate the world chess champion with a king and a crown. After the loss in this game, the crown has faded slightly. We restore its shine. In Goldchess Carlsen wins and in beautiful style. 
Report: Chess problem from the Carlsen-Niemann game, Carlsen's loss. The result should have been changed and won with white. Only two chess players out of more than 30 playing sent solutions in overtime.  Chessstart from the US and Arman from Armenia. Our variant was discovered by Chessstart. In the position after the 30th move we played 31.Bg3, sacrificing the bishop (Carlsen played 31.h3xg4). He also played this way, and at the same time mated 4 moves earlier, and won a move earlier. Arman repeated Carlsen's move and sent only one solution, a win in the 41st move (we added a mate in this variant in the 44th move). A faster win was possible here because CEEC played a weaker move than Niemann, 31...Q:g4 (Niemann 31...B:g4). However, the repetition in the given position of the move from the original game is incorrect. One should always see what move was played in the original game and play a different one before solving. Chessstart sent in the overtime, so half the prize. Congratulations.
To the other chess players who did not send anything, let them study diligently and improve their level to send next time.

August 20  Report: We wrote that this competition for good chess players. A mate in the 27th move and a draw in the 37th. No one solved in the given time of 15 minutes. Two players sent only draws, both in 34 move, but both incorrect. Arman (Armenia) sent from a bad position, Pawel (Poland) from a good one, but both played the first move 26... Kf8. This is the way Kashlinska played and if we show this position it is to change this move, not to repeat it. Our solution is witty, it's whites fighting for a draw and they can't beat the f7 pawn because they get a mate. After time we only have Arman winning on move 25. Here Arman was close to our variant, but the mate did not send. So the $25 prize remained untouched. We'll see how the players do with the Carlsen game next week. Also the $25 prize.
The chess players' honour was saved by Chessstart from the US, sending a correct mat 27 after overtime and an effective draw in the 33rd move. A great distinction. Pity he did not fit in time to win the prize

Earlier text
Task from the game Muzyczuk-Kashlinskaya lost by black. Win playing black. 2 beautiful tasks. This competition for really good chess players.

Polish women at the Olympics. The decisive match against Ukraine. Muzyczuk-Kashlinskaya 1-0, Uszenina-Kiolbasa 1-0. Black day for black pieces. A match and games on which the medal depended for the Polish women.

Could it have been better? Of course. The game Marija Muzyczuk - Alina Kashlinskaya. Polish grandmaster had a 100% winning game. However, at one point she made a move which we would call - putting her head under the guillotine (19... R:g2). After that move, it was no longer possible to win. But a draw was possible. (We're straightening up. We found a win here too). 

August 13 - Rapport-Nepomniachtchi game 0-1. Win by playing white. Draw 23, win 24. Brilliant Goldchess chess...

Goldchess is great!
 Armenak did not play and an equally good chess player from the US, Chessstart probably on holiday and nobody solved the problem either in the allotted time or in overtime. Our other chess players are kind of 2nd league.
Arman from Armenia, also a young good chess player sent only a draw, a win in the 24th move was not found. Had black played 22.... Na6 instead of 22... Rc8, there is also a nice win on the 31st move. We will show both variants.
After the overtime, the Polish chess player Wojciech Filip sent us a draw in 19, as many as 4 moves faster! Congratulations!
ps. After move 22... Na6 we also have a beautiful win on move 26.

August 6 - Nepomniachtchi-Alireza Firouzia 1-0

Played by black, should be won in the 40th move. A beautiful variant. Prize $10, time to solve 10 minutes.
Today we show how Alireza could win against Nepo. We offer white the f7 pawn. Would Nepo have played the way our computer did? Maybe not, if he saw the trap here. But most chess players would have played identically to our computer. Discover the beauty of chess in this variant.

July 31 - game Shirov-Toczek 1-0. The Shirov-Toczek game from the current Chess Olympiad is a brilliant ending performed by Shirov. Could the Polish (Welsh) player have won it? Very possibly. In Goldchess, we rematch Shirov with a black win on move 34 and an equally brilliant variant. Even such brilliant games as that of Shirov have their mirror images in the black game. Diamonds vs black diamonds.
No one solved. And all you had to do was beat our educational computer, not Shirov. See our solutions.

July 30 - Game 5 Ding Liren- Radjabov 0-1. $15 prize. (postponed)

July 23 - Game 4 Firouzia-Nepomniachtchi 0-1. $25. Firouzia played 20.Kg2 and lost. And it was won by a simple 20.Rf2 (the winner's idea) or 20.Rg1 (our variant). Another set of chess beauty. See all the solutions here. The winner is Chessstart from the US. We'll let the secret out. He is the FIDE international champion.

July 16 - Game 3 brilliant game, $50 prize. Competition over! Chessstart from the US wins! See in -Winners- 8 our versions of the Caruana-Ding Liren game from the Candidates tournament. To have Caruana play like that in this game...

July 9 - Game 2 Duda-Ding Liren, draw. Win by playing white. Nobody has solved. Competition ended. There were 3 tasks. Win on move 45, win 45 with queen capture (level 5) and win on move 59 at level 23 (change level here: CEEC face-Play-Options-Strengh-23 level -ok). We showcase our solutions. Learn. Duda played the amateur move, 30th Rb3, we played the 30th Reb2 with a sacrifice of quality. The move 30.Reb2 opens the way for an attack on the black king by the queen, the bishop and the two knights. See our solution in -Winners-Chess Miracles.

July 2. Game-task from the Candidates Tournament 2022. Ding Liren-Nepomniachtchi  0-1. Win with white.
The weekend competition is over. No one found our variants and there is no winner. One player sent one correct solution, winning in 34 moves, others like ours. 

June 25
Game from Summer Chess Clasic 2022, Sevian-Smirin 0-1. Prize $15.
Win by playing white. 3 tasks: mate in the 40th move, mate in the 41st with capture of the queen and in the 42nd with capture of all pieces. Time to solve 15 minutes. Nobody has solved in given time. We made the overtime.

Overtime complete. The winner is the American player, Chessstart (ChessStar). He sent 3 solutions, including one brilliant one. In the mate 40 (31) variant CEEC plays on the 22nd move ed3 or g6. In the first variant the moves 24.Ra4 and 25.Qg6 are noteworthy. Both moves Carlsen himself or any of the contenders would not be ashamed of. See all the solutions, how it should have been played. It's a learning and experience you won't get anywhere else.

June 18
Carlsen-Shevchenko 0-1.
The position had to be won by white in the 36th move. Only 2 players have sent in solutions. Both not authored, but a move and 2 earlier. Chessstart wins, a nice, pure chess win. The Goldchess concept was slightly different, we present both solutions. And this comment. There were 36 chess players in the competition. Two only sent solutions. We wonder if the others have some kind of brain defect? Congrat for the winner, Chessstart player (US). In competition US - Europe 2:0

Norway Chess May-June 2022

Contest is over
Player from US, nick Chessstart, sent in our contest (game So-Carlsen) mate 30 with queen capture and victory 28. He thus won the competition and the $15 prize. Great congrat! Currently. US - Europe 1:0. see all solutions

June 17 news. Armenak discovered mate in 33 move, 2 moves faster than us! But there is no win in 28 to win the prize.

Starting June 11. (a prize of $15 valid until someone sends in 2 correct solutions)
So - Carlsen 0-1. First prize $50. ($15 in overtime), Win playing black.
We win it in beautiful style in two different variants. Win 28 and mate 35 with capture of the queen. Discover them for yourself and win the prize.

This game will go down in chess history as one of the world champion's biggest mistakes. Carlsen created a winning position, played the wrong 23 move with black and... lost. It is worth seeing all the winning variants from this position, ours and our players. As of today (June 17) no 2 solutions and the prize stands.


It was  up to June 11. Solidarity NOR-UKR match - $20 prize. 
Game 2, Carlsen-Shewchenko. Plau white.
White win in 36th move, position after 22 moves (original position after 17 moves, we added 5 moves of solution for ease). Nobody has solved this problem from the Carlsen-Shewchenko game.

Game 1, Ivanchuk-Carlsen, 2 winners. Wojciech Filip, Poland, v27 (from position 21), and Nico (US) v33 (original)> Solutions in -Winners-Chess MIracles

Solutions in -Winners-Chess miracles

20-04-2022. Duda-Carlsen (3) 0-1. WIth us 1-0. After 15 moves black's position is lost. It can be won in many ways. 16.Be3, 16.R:e5, or even 16.Ne4. But Duda found a way to lose it (16.Bb4).
See our variants. From  the position after the 15th move. In Winners-Chess miracles.

 

09-04-2022. Duda_Carlsen (2). Pawel Jaworski sent in a dual, v35, we awarded $5. Armenak sent his own variant, of course, with the capture of two queens, fine-v34, $10 prize. We show also our solution. Game over.

29-03-2022. $25 prize. Duda-Carlsen (2), April 3. Armenak (again) sent the 2 fastest solutions. Mate 31 we could acknowledge and win 29 we could not. The condition of winning two queens is not met. But here the question arises. Are thousands of our other users some flawed pseudo chess players with a level below zero?
 
$10 prize
Ding Liren – Carlsen 1-0
Carlsen played 28...B:b2. He regained quality, but did not fully predict the consequences of white's move, 31.R:b7+. Therefore we changed black's 28th move and won on the 44th move. However, the win was very difficult. Therefore we will not show it for now, it is as a task for our chess players. Position after white's 28th move, won in 44th. Prize $10 for the first player of course.
Armenak is the winner. He sent mate 39 and win 42, 2 moves earlier than we.
Great congrat

Carlsen – Navara 0-1

Navarra won with a simple trick, eliminating the bishop defending the f3 field. But from the 40th move the game was already practically lost for white. We show 2 possible draws (41...Qf6, 41...Qf8). A simple win we found from the position after the 30th move. It turns out that Carlsen's move 31.Kg1 was a weak move.


Le Quang Liem - Duda 1-0

A very strong and virtuoso game played by the winner of the tournament. After 23rd weak move of Duda it was practically unwinnable for black. From the position after the 23rd move (we change Duda's 23rd move) a draw position was reached already in the 51st move. For black the draw is 100%, while white with inaccurate play can lose the position. In Goldchess version draw plus win.

The big losers and their games - Tata Steel 2022
The 13 most instructive games. In this series we show how the games lost by the great champions, participants in the Tata Steel 2022 tournament in January, could have been won. See in -Winners-

***Game 13 and now the absolute highlight, the game Praggnanandhaa - Carlsen lost by white. Deservedly, I might add. To win with Carlsen, you have to show something in chess. Normal, correct play is not enough, because he is the best in such a game. That's why we show something different, our style. It is universal. Anyone, at any level, can assimilate it and win, achieve success. And if a chess player from the top, from among the best chess players in the world understands it and masters it, he will have no equal and will be unbeatable. 
In the game, Praggnanandhaa playing against Carlsen in white played 15.a4 and lost. We played 15.e4 and showed a remarkable winning variant. The position built by Carlsen also has its weaknesses and we showed them, sacrificing quality. We do not insist that with this variant Praggna would win with the world champion, but we claim that with the rest of the chess players of this tournament, yes. The position after 14 moves. Mate 37 and won 31, and 33 with capture of the queen.
 

*Game 12 Carlsen-Mamedyarov 1-0. 
From the position after white's 16th move we needed only 13 moves to win with black. Our educational computer does not play as strongly as Carlsen, of course, but our idea in this game is very interesting and if Mamedyarov had pursued it, it would have had a chance of success.

Game 11. Esipenko-Giri 0-1. In our game white mate in 42nd move. The position we have chosen is a draw, with an indication for white. However in such equivalent positions always the one who plays better during the game wins. Position after 22 moves.

*Game 10 - Shankland, US champion. He lost playing black to Vidit. And the white king stands badly, the castling position is not well defended, just take advantage of that. See how we did it.  In our case, win 29 and mate 34. Position after white's 14th move.


Game 9 - Duda for an encore. Losing to Caruana. A game like military manoeuvres. Mate 35. Position after 18 moves.

Game 8. Foreest lost in white to Mamedyarov. And the win was so easy... In our case a win in 44 and a mate in 33, remarkable I might add. There is a finesse trap in the game with a sacrifice of quality. Position after 15 moves. Winning 44 with the capture of 2 queens.


*Game 7. Karjakin played the routine 25. ... g6. We 25. ... Re5. A seemingly meaningless move, but, after 26.f4 it exposes the g1-h7 diagonal on which the white king and knight stand. And if white had now played 27.e5, then after 27... Bf5, 28.Q:f5 Q:d4+, they would have won in a dynamic variant on move 39.  But the PC played 27.Qc3, wanting to exchange queens and free the d4 knight from being tied.  Logical, but allowing black to carry out their combination. In chess the most important thing is to confuse the opponent. So that he doesn't know what we want to play and can't predict our moves and our concept. Here you have a position from the game. Download it and try to win by yourself. We have a win 41 and a defeat 45, black of course.
We will also show a variant - winning with white after 27.e5. Position after white's 25th move.

Game 6 Dubov-Vidit Gujrathi 0-1 A loss for Dubov, who makes up for it with us. ... In our variant after 27....B:e6 there is a draw, but the computer calculates, has a rook more and does not want a draw. In us mate 34 with the capture the queen.
 
Game 5. Caruana lost to Giri, playing white. We definitely did not like his 16th move, 16.Nf1. We played stronger and more effectively. We present mate 32.

Game 4. Rapport lost to Carlsen, playing black and to Foreest, playing white. Here we already disliked Rapport's 10th move. 10.Nhf3. We played 10.N:e4. And this is probably how we should have played to win the game. In Winners/Puzzle Pop/Gold0 we present mate 34.

Game 3, Vidit Gujrathi, our 2017 patron lost to Foreest. We have a win on move 38 and a mate on move 41.
ps.
In this game the computer playing white exchanged queens on move 29. In contrast, we discovered that 28.Qh8+ Kf7, 29.Rd8 or 29.Rc1 was winning. But this is a general, common shortcoming of chess. In many tournament games later analysis shows that one could have played stronger and not lost, or played stronger and won. It happens with us too. The computer plays at a certain level, lowered additionally in our case from 23 to 5, so that it is fun and the players can win. Nevertheless, our reality is close to the level of 90% of the world's chess population.


2. Today's second game, Carlsen-Giri, lost by black. The position after white's 18th move.

We obtained a draw on move 29, and wins on moves 39 and 55. 
Would any of our variants have brought victory for Giri? No one knows...

1. Mamedyarov-Duda 1-0, Tata Steel January 2022. In our case black wins (v45 and mate 51).

The match between Carlsen and Nepomniachtchi in the Goldchess version

In our version of the match we show different chess than that presented to us by the two best chess players in the world. First of all it is spectacular, full of new concepts and techniques that both masters would be proud of. We extracted everything, or almost everything, from the same positions, and certainly what the masters who presented the style of mathematical chess logic could not show.

The match between Carlsen and Nepo is a match between two of the best chess players in the world. It might seem that nothing can be improved here. But it turns out that you can. You have concrete examples of this in our versions of the champions' games.

Of course our match is on a much weaker level than the official one, but this makes our games more spectacular.  We agree that it is possible to play differently or stronger in specific positions, but... it is the same in the games of both champions, as you will see further on.

Comments to them: https://www.goldchess.com/en/other/gamesnews.html#gld0game


Game 1.
Mate 31, by Lukasz Luba, a fun game, because CEEC plays 24... B:c1, and after 24... Rd6 white loses. The second our variant is won on the 34th move, a less impressive but already more strongly played game. A small note, in this game the version of the Spanish game performed by white does not impress.

Game 2.1
We rate our move 20.Bg5 as stronger than Carlsen's forced and barren move 20.Rb1.
After our move we gain tempo and countermoves. In this game being at a loss of quality Carlsen fights white for a draw.

Game 2.2
In variant 2, from the position after 30 moves instead of the return 31.Nd6 played by Carlsen, we play the much stronger 31.Sf6, which is the beginning of a brilliant combination worthy of the level of the world champion. With us is win 41 and mate 45 with the capture of all figures.

Black is helpless... One of the most beautiful Goldchess combinations in this match.

In general Nepo played inaccurately here. After 30.N:e4 he played 30... Kh8, making possible our second truly remarkable combination. Our educational computer played more strongly, 30...Qc6. (a7 pawn untouchable, because Rb1#).

Game 3
We changed white's 13th move. 13.Ne3 is unacceptable even for our amateur. It's an insult to the professional Nepo and a slap in the face to Carlsen, who was put in a situation where he can't cope with an opponent making moves at amateur level. Comparatively, Korchnoi's unconventional, historic move, after 1. e4 e5, 2, Nf3 Nf6, 3.Bd3, in a game which he incidentally won, seems to be a brilliant move. But that was at the beginning of Korchnoi's game. In this game, the move 13.Ne3 is a nightmare in the underbidding position. Besides, it moves white's activity to the queen's wing, which ends up as in the game. Mr. Pretender, the king to mate is on the king's wing.

In our case, mate 27 and a virtuoso, very strong attack. Cuban grandmaster Yuri Gonzalez Vidal gave mate here in 25 moves, see
https://www.goldchess.com/en/other/winnerslist.html#gcdailypaid

Game 4
Position after 14 moves. Carlsen's move 15.Qb5, after black's easily predictable reply 15...Qd7 with exchange of queens is not good. Carlsen practically eliminates the attacking power and the white attack itself. To himself.Our conception of the game and attack according to Goldchess is different. Our variant is winning in 28th move. In this game we rub shoulders with Capablanca's genius. Everyone who discovers our solution will feel the same. Black surrenders in the 28th move, because after 28... Kh8 there is a threat of 29.Qf7! Here I will add that after 24...Q:a2 black also loses. In our variant, it is possible to win less impressive on the 27th move.

Game 5
A difficult win because in this game, unlike the previous ones, both greats played well, accurately and precisely. But it worked. We changed move 16, we have win on move 32 (31) or mate on move 32.

Game 6
At last a resultant game. Carlsen bravely exchanged his queen for 2 black rooks and won on move 136. Nepo defended for a long time. We of course perversely found a draw and a win for black, winning with our CEEC. A draw Nepo could realistically achieve, while with a win it would be rather difficult.Carlsen is not CEEC and would probably play stronger, differently.  Today's task is a draw in move 60.

Game 7
In the match a draw, in ours a straight win on move 38, after exchanging queens, and 33-38 (by Vitaly and Armenak). To us, the computer played the 22nd move differently.

Nepo did not see the counter chance hidden in this position. He played a seemingly strong 22. de5, which after a series of schematic exchanges gave a draw position. We have a different vision of attacking and winning. Discover it for yourself.

Game 8: A draw game, and Carlsen outplayed Nepo at the end like a kid with a ranking of 1000. 28... Qa5? Qd5 should have been played ruthlessly, still giving a draw chance. In general after this game the match became ridiculous. In our case black won on move 39-40, from the position after move 24.

Game 9
In game 9 we achieved a draw without any problems. A draw at move 31 in the play version, when CEEC makes the mistake of beating the a1 rook, and a draw at move 32 in the serious version.

Could Nepo have won this game? Of course. We have a win in 26-29 and a mate on move 31 with the capture of the queen.

Game 10
The idea of queens exchange. In the white game this is almost a mistake (see also game 4). The lack of a queen severely weakens the attack, and white is after all the colour of the first move. Therefore in this game our idea was to protect the white queen from exchange. And it worked out well for white. Winning 22 move with capturing the queen, mate 23 and draw 23. Of course wins are easier to get here, because CEEC doesn't have the playing strength of Carlsen or Nepo, but he plays correctly, according to chess rules. Like 90% of chess players. And for them our games are exemplary.

Game 11.1
After 11 games we can only say: this is no longer a match. It is a slaughter. See how we won the 11th game with white. The key is 15.Sd5! It's a pity Nepo didn't see it and played 15.Wad1, a move without deep sense and concrete plan.

Game 11.2
Second chance for Nepo to win this game.
The game has a so-called second bottom, second face, won by white from the position after black's 32nd move. Nepo plays stiff, hopeless 33.R:f1. We play the fine 33.Kf2. This is a trap. If black now plays the reflexive, mechanical 33...Nc2, saving the knight, he has lost the game, because 34.ec7 follows. See also this our version of game 11.

It seems there are only poor players in Gold 0. And the poorest are from India; hundreds of them visit our website but none of them has submitted a good solution in either Gold 0 or Genius Test. Also, none of them has played in Rosija-America or Independent.
It appears that Anand is the only one out there who knows how to play chess. And reportedly in India there are over 100 million chess players… If it’s true, then show us your skills.
Apart from Chess Department China, we intended to open Chess Department India, but probably it won't be necessary.
