We’ve got some cool improvements coming to our ever so popular auto-pairing pools. First, we’ll be adding a 25 10 pool. This is FIDE’S official Rapid time control, and something many of you have requested. It’ll replace the 45/45 which hasn’t garnered much popularity.
We’ll also be introducing a new computer pool, the PC pool. This pool will be flexible, with results tallied at the end of each month, and prizes given out for top accounts, and what’s more, we’ll reset ratings and start fresh each month with a new time control. This pool will replace the checkers pool which hasn’t been very active.
Finally, to inaugurate this PC pool, we’re going to hold an advanced chess tournament with big cash prizes! In this tournament computer asistance will not only be allowed, it’ll be encouraged!!
Stay tuned for more details!
