I have been playing on ChessWorld for 6 years as Thylacine 3.
I used to play correspondence chess by post & email but now enjoy the interactive environment of online chess where you can chat with your opponent.
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.
There are a variety of tournaments to choose from - knockout, all-play-all, pyramid.
ChessWorld Members frequently join one, or more, of the popular four player All-Play-All Tournaments so that they have a reasonable number of concurrent
games at any one time.
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.
Players from over 100 countries participate on ChessWorld. Many players use the chat facility to learn more about their opponents and where they live.
