The most anticipated tournament of the year is here and in Guess Chess you will be able to follow the games and play at the same time in our move prediction competitions, all for free and with cash prizes!
Each round we will open a game with $255 in prizes. All you have to do is register, take a look at the rules, join the game in question when it is announced in “Play” and you’re in. This game is only for people over 18 years old.
On how to play, we’ll help you with this basic guide:
Before starting the game, pick a result. If you guess right, it will give you valuable points at the end. During the game you can change the choice, but the extra points counter (the number in blue) will be reset.
You can predict single moves or sequences, even before the game starts. To do this, simply make the chosen moves on the board and hit Send.
If you fail a move, 50 points will be deducted. If you guess right, you will add as many points as seconds the GM has thought, with a minimum of 100 points. Some moves have bonuses.
Sequences award much more points, but watch out! The failures will cost you valuable points in the ranking. As you hit the moves in the sequence, the cost of points in case of failure is lower, but to get the great reward you need to hit all the moves in the prediction.
You can change a submitted prediction before it is played. In the case of sequences, once the first move has been played, it can no longer be changed.
You can get advice from the engines, there is nothing wrong with that.
You can “pass” whenever you feel like it, it won’t cost you any points.
Guess Chess is an excellent form of training. Almost without realizing it you will be immersed in the analysis of the same options that a GM of the highest level is considering.
