The Chess Arena is off to its early beta start. With the help of all pre-registered players the technical team has started polishing the rough edges on the back-end of the platform.
As a big “thank you” to all users there will be daily expert games online with invited strong players who will play on a random challenge against anyone. In the next days you will be seeing National Masters, International Masters, and Grandmasters joining for pre-announced multiple board battles.
The first invited player is NM Will Stewart (user name: WillStewart).
To celebrate the start of the Candidates 2013, he will be playing at time control 3 min + 1 sec on March 14th at 19:00 CET (14:00 EST, 16:00 GMT) for a full hour. NM Stewart will be commenting every game as he plays in a video.
