Chess players: Start your engines! The first Ultimate Chess Championship is fast approaching!

Unlike regular tournaments, where only the elite have a chance to win top honors, everyone has a chance now! Everything goes in this tournament, so bring your friends, bring your computers, bring your friends and their computers!

Will a GM team win or perhaps a GM with computer help? Or will it be the lone gunslinger with the latest and greatest computer program, a specialized book and a monster machine? Join us and find out! It could be you! :-)

Put those pieces of silicon to work and earn some money! Yeah, that's it: you feed them with Gigas of memory, allow them to dwell into your super multiple CPU beloved computers, cuddle them with opening books and special settings, tweaking and fine-tuning all day long, to get their strength up and up... it's time for the engines to give back love, and make you compete - and possibly win! - in the amazing Ultimate Chess Championship!

Here is the schedule:

Qualifier 1  October 2nd at 13:00 - 9 rounds of 15 10 swiss - 4 qualify for final
Qualifier 2  October 3rd at 13:00 - 9 rounds of 15 10 swiss - 4 qualify for final

World Chess Cup 2015

 computer pool

The World Cup is the only KO-system tournament which sees the participation of almost all the top players in the world. The most important fact about the World Cup is that the two finalists get a seat at the Candidates Tournament, which is of course the most awaited event of the FIDE cycle to determine the challenger to the crown. Last but not least, it's a rich tournament, with a good chunk of money for the players. But there is another aspect that makes this tournament one of the most followed: the upsets.

Ask The Master!

 IM John Watson

International Master and author John Watson is back!
After a couple of months hiatus, Watson is back on ICC with a brand-new LIVE show. On Tuesday, September the 15th, at 3PM EDT - 21:00 Central Europe, John will start his new adventure, with a show that will be aired live on ICCTV. IM Watson will answer all your questions about openings, tactics and strategy. Occasionally, John will bring in the show an important chess personality for a live interview, with you people being able to ask questions live!

For the first time, ICC is using a Twitter hashtag to allow you to ask your questions to Watson in advance: use #askIMWatson on Twitter and ask away! John will go through your questions and answer you during his show! ICC members will be able to watch the show even after it's over, as every show will be made into a video for members-only.
