I have been playing on ChessWorld for 6 years. I used to play correspondence chess by post but now enjoy the interactive environment of online chess.
You can elect to play as many games as you want and you can choose to play individual
games, rated or unrated, or you can join Tournaments or Teams, whichever is your preference. Whichever style you choose, you can select a time limit, from 1 to 15 days per move.
All members are given a rating of 1400 when they join
ChessWorld. This will vary, in either direction, depending upon the results of any rated games that are played. The ChessWorld rating system is based upon internationally recognised standards and may be regarded
as a reliable measure of your performance whilst playing games on ChessWorld. However, in common with all online chess playing sites your rating is not directly comparable with over-the-board ratings.
from over 100 countries participate on ChessWorld. Many players use the chat facility to learn more about their opponents and where they live.
