The biggest tournament of the year is to be held this month. Try your luck in one of the five qualification rounds and prove you are the best!

Year’s end is always a time of evaluation. Was it a good year or a bad one? Could it be considered successful? Have I achieved something big? Well, as you still haven’t won our yearly championship, you haven’t. Now you have the opportunity to try your best and prove to yourself and everyone else that you are THE chess player.

The tournament will be a two-level tournament, with five qualification rounds. If you place in the top 10 places of a certain round, you get a ticket to the Final round. If you are a premium or an exclusive user, you get a ticket automatically.

The rounds are aimed at various players, preffering several time control rules. The first one, held on 14th of December, is a bullet chess tournament with a 1+0 time control. If you like to take a bit longer to thing about your next move, you may choose a 3+0 tournament held on 16th. For fans of blitz chess, a 5+0 round is held on 18th. Then, on 20th of december, a 7+0 round will be held. The last qualification round, held on 22nd of december, will have a 10+0 time control.

    I think there is not maximum fair and we have a winner who probably was penalized for something. Player “divaca” was ranked few time ago 600 points. I think the rules are too weak. A player who made 100% in qualifying and in the finals, is a real …star. With my vast online experience, I haven’t seen a player after cheating has become fair (only become more careful in how to cheat). Not convince me this champion and I think the server rules, not have to allow access even in qualifying at least for a significant period. Basically, penalty did nothing him, but a lot of bad for other players.
