**Gold 0 - pause until further notice**

Free Gold 0 game for young chess players up to 16 years has been “besieged by cheaters”. People within the age range from 20 to 40 disguising themselves as teenagers. They even asked 13 years old boys to let them use their personal data but then it came out that the kid did not play chess at all. Therefore we plan to restart the game, even with a higher prize, but we need at least 100 players registered by official chess trainers. All those registered players will be notified about the start of the game by messages sent to their e-mail addresses.

It seems there are only poor players in Gold 0. And the poorest are from India; hundreds of them visit our website but none of them has submitted a good solution in either Gold 0 or Genius Test. Also, none of them has played in Rosija-America or Independent.

It appears that Anand is the only one out there who knows how to play chess. And reportedly in India there are over 100 million chess players… If it’s true, then show us your skills.

Apart from Chess Department China, we intended to open Chess Department India, but probably it won't be necessary.

**Olympics in Batumi, in Goldchess**

In Batumi some cheeky Frenchman, with the Polish grandmaster of a large class, played in defense of the Russian 3.S: e5. And the Pole, most likely surprised by such a move, lost the game. In Goldchess, we punished for this move and win black in a beautiful, dynamic game.

Free game, $ 100 prize. Rules like in the Genius Test, 10 correct solutions and we draw the winner.

Task: Vachier-Lagrave vs J.K. Duda - mat in the 27th movement. We play, of course, blacks.

Task and prize only for Polish chess players. **But, try yourself, maybe everyone.** Position to download in Results – Hunt game. (www.goldchess.com). You send the solution in the CEEC-our chess program file (.pgn extension) to the address contact@goldchess.com.

A pause to appeal

**"64-Шахматное обозрение", that is „64” from Moscow, has assumed the media patronage over Chess Department Rosija. **

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1st Edition of the Rosija-America Tournament - a summary.

During the tournament the contenders played games - problems based on authentic positions from the Anand-Gelfand match.

The participants won prizes worth US $26,150 in total.

Players from Chess Department America turned out to be better and won 70% of the prizes.

On the other hand, no Russian played for Chess Department Rosija.

The most beautiful games are presented in the Featured solutions section.

=================================

The Rosija-America Tournament is finished. We have enlivened the Anand-Gelfand match in our replay. There were lots of emotions and surprises in the form of player’s own games, e.g. in the 15th and the last – 16th round. Although no one provided the author’s solution, our player’s submitted their own, even more beautiful solutions, e.g. a professional from China and an amateur from England. And this is the game that I would like to present to you. It was created by a law student of the Sunderland University in the UK, Piotr Niedbał.

In a short interview he told us: “I’m a 1984 elo chess player, in Poland I have the 1st Category rating. Chess has been my passion since I can remember, this is why I do my best to train daily. My dream is to become a Grandmaster.

We partially fulfill this dream. For this exceptional game Piotr is awarded 1,500 USD prize and the first well-earned title of Goldchess Grandmaster.

Thank you, Piotr, and keep on playing like that.

Let’s take a look on how Piotr solved the position from the 13th game (round 16) in which Gelfand played white; this game ended with a draw after 32 moves. For the record, Piotr started with the position after 13 moves.

1st edition of the Independent Tournament - play when you want has ended.

Event summary

The beginning was terrible. After two successful rounds the players got stuck on the 3rd task and couldn’t solve it in 6 consecutive rounds.

Things got better in the second half.

The hero of the Tournament was Krystian Jacek, who triumphed individually or as a team member in 6 out of 8 rounds, and won, amongst others, the prize for the 12th round, which was US$ 2,000.

Nobody managed to solve the problem in the last, 16th round. CEEC did not let anyone beat it and nobody won the prize of USD 2,000.

2016-07-30

Unique Goldchess games

In the 15th round of the Independent Tournament, Krystian Jacek sent us a very beautiful solution that we are glad to present. It is really delightful and also two moves faster than the author’s solution. It was possible because the CEEC is not playing at a Grandmaster’s level but only at 1800 ELO level, which allows to carry out spectacular combinations. Therefore, the solution is not completely error-free, for example: after 24...Rb8, or ...b5/ ... instead of Bd7 /, we would have only a draw. A breakthrough moment of the game is the move 19. If the Black had not captured the queen straightaway but moved 19 ... + Nf3, Black would have won the game.

20.Kd1 ed5 - now you can capture the queen safely

21.Nd6 + Kf8 - White resign.

However, the CEEC "thinks" in its own way and the temptation to capture the queen was stronger thus we have this game which will be placed in the collection of the distinguished as one of the most beautiful Goldchess games.

Referring to the Andersen’s Immortal Game, the solution in question has a similar flaw. If Black played stronger in the 20 move, not 20 ... Na6 but for example 20 ... f6, there would be ... no Immortal Game of Andersen.

In the end of our game the black queen could of course have been captured by checkmating, but we show here an original variant of the participant, because we believe that NON-CAPTURING of the queen makes this game even more pretty. Whereas, the author’s solution, also sacrificing the queen, is more stable and could take place in the real tournament game. See both solutions below. Goldchess… it is so simple

player's solution

Round 12th - prize $2000

Only one... Only one chess player sent the correct solution to the problem of 12th round. He solved it in 1.5 hour.

The award of $ 2000 goes to Krystian Jacek! Title - Future Gold Player

Attention! The chess player that purchases the license n° 500 for the Independent Tournament will be granted a US$ 500 bonus, and the buyer of the license n°1,000 will obtain the prize worth US$ 2,500!!!

Currently, we are the first in the world to have introduced another novelty: playing against a famous chess player. Every week our users could play with the great personages of the chess world. For example, with Timur Gareyev, with a junior Alicja Śliwicka the World Vice-Champion in fast chess, the Armenia’s champion Maria Gevorgyan, Grandmaster Aleksander Colovic and many other well-known chess players. The only thing you have to do is to sign up and be ready at the exact time assigned for the game. 3 players will play 3 games of 10 minutes each. The first one will be from the list and two others will be picked randomly by our computer.

Feel invited!

Game rules

1. Your color will be randomly selected by our computer.

2. You will be playing on your own, using a chess software is not permitted and will be treated as cheating.

**Genius Test - July**. Here is the solution. Pay attention to its style and quality. Goldchess involves iron logic of chess and playing identical with or very similar to tournament chess. This game, starting from the given position, could be played in any chess tournament. Mate in 26 moves, with the queen sacrificed and captured. We present also our solution No. 2, which is reverse mate in 27 moves, with the queen captured and sacrificed. Take a look.

**Comments. Position after 15 moves.**

Goldchess is an outstanding form of chess, ideal for learning how to play. You can freely undo moves and look for other possibilities, choosing the best ones. In this game, you can play several variants and quickly work out that in this position the key black piece is the knight well positioned on g4, which defends e5 and the f4-b8 diagonal. So, how can it be eliminated? In a very straightforward way,

**16.h3 Nh6** – the knight can move only in one way, after 15… Ne5, 16.Bf4 the black would lose a pawn. But how should the black queen be attacked now with tempo? This is the Genius variant, so the solution is also simple. Sacrifice the knight.

**17.N:d4 ed4**

**18.Bf4! Qa5** continued attack with tempo

**19.b4! Q:a2**

**20.b5 N:f5** Black captures the pawn in order to subsequently shield itself with the knight on d6

**21.bc6** Wb8# mate is imminent

**21…. Nd6**

**22.c5 Rde8** the computer defends e7 against white pawn marching after knight capture on d6.

And here is the brilliant point of this combination.

**23.Qb5!!! N:b5** a beautiful sacrifice of the queen. Black must capture. Mate on b8 was imminent

**24.R:b4** inevitable mate on b8 , with the rook

**24…. Qb2 **an act of despair

**26.R:b2 Rd8**

**27.Rb8#**

Genius Test-solution other than the author's, S. Manukyan

2016-10-31

There is a problem which may even require an arbitration. A player has submitted a beautiful solution for the Genius Test. Yet, it is not a proper solution, as it is a checkmate and not a victory, and a wrong variant, although the conditions, which included first capturing and then sacrificing the queen, have been met. Furthermore, to put it mildly, CEEC's 27th move in our test is 27. ...Rxf6, and not 27. ...Kg7, as in the player's version. So, the solution cannot be acknowledged, but let's examine it closely.

2016-10-25

Task for October is extremely tricky. I could not find the solution in 28 movements but only 29 movements. Yet I think my solution is nice and that is why I am sharing it with you by mail.

I spend quite a long time to come up with the solution... Thanks for the interesting game..

This is what the winner of May version of Genius Test, Kristian Jacek, who is very talented chess player with an official ranking of 2165 (due to not playing too much), but in reality with a ranking 2400, had to say about us:

goldchess.com portal offers a variety of interesting chess games and problems. One of them is Genius Test, which is free with a large prize fund. The problem that was posted in May was nothing that I expected. Wb1 move was a beautiful move that used an overload motive, which shows the beautiful, deep nature of Chess. It is very nice to discover this nature. The best examples of this tactics are known people in chess community, such as Michaił Tal who gave up half of his figures just mate with the last ones! There is also Robert Fischer who is known as „Wonderful Child” because of his chess talent by which he outran his times.

I recommend for you to get to know those people and watch their best chess games, they are simply amazing. They will also bring your skills up, so it will be easier for you to solve chess problems in Genius test and Goldchess problems in general, as we admire beauty in chess.

In the end, I would like to thank goldchess.com portal that it arise for us - chess players, and for opportunity to solve such a beautiful chess problems.

After the tournament, it turned out that task 2 was not so difficult. Łukasz Luba has sent as many as 5 solutions, including author's! See in -Winners-Millionaire- great show of the party 2, performed by Łukasz. Learn from him. He showed how to play Goldchess. Great applause!

2018-12-15

**Millionaire –Description**

The first day belongs to the chess players from Armenia. Nobody else has sent any solution. Strong players from India, Israel, Russia and the United States, Peru, Portugal, Poland, got completely lost and were left far behind. Still it is necessary to train. Coming unprepared does not guarantee a way to success.

**Problem 1**. The task were to win in 30 moves having sacrificed the queen. Nobody has provided a correct solution. A distinction goes to Alex Nurijanyan who sent in a solution that includes the sacrifice of the queen, but one move too late. Time: 11:37. Second solution is a fantastic game by the Armenia’s female champion Maria Gevorgyan, a checkmate in 38th move, forced in 8, sacrificing the queen. We will show the game at Winners, it is really worth seeing.

**Problem 2** turned out to be the most difficult of today. The task was to checkmate in the 33rd move after capturing a queen. Nobody has solved it. We would like to give a distinction for the third solution to Alex Nurijanyan, who gave the Beniowski’s checkmate in the 32nd move, after sacrificing the queen, of course.

**Problem 3**. The task was to checkmate in the 37th move after sacrificing the queen. Only one solution on time, sent in by Maria Gevorgyan. Checkmate after sacrificing the queen. She did it with a rook, we did it with a knight, but here it was done 4 moves earlier! See, one can do it. And look at the time! One minute and one second. Second solution came after the time-out, after 17 minutes. Bravo! We have a new Goldchess star amongst the Armenian players.

**Millionaire, second day**

**Problem 4**. Many solutions, but nobody has sent the required one. The second one we have received is a beautiful solution from Maria Gevorgyan, with the queen captured even one move before, and then the sacrifice, but… the same solution has been sent in by other two players, from Armenia and from Poland, that followed. Therefore we postpone the decision on the award for this game.

**Problem 5**. Only two players have sent in their solutions. The task was to checkmate in 39 moves having sacrificed the queen and having captured all the rival’s major pieces. The fourth solution shows a checkmate in the 40th move, that is one move too late. It has been sent in by Łukasz Luba from Poland and complies with the requirements. So he is the winner. If we had the minimum number of participants that we require and therefore full prize pool available, he would have received US$ 75,000 for this solution. However, because the turnout was far below one thousand, the awards will be symbolic, so to say. Everything is in the hands of the players. If the turnout is as required, that the prizes will be more satisfactory. Remember this during our next edition.

Generally speaking, the problems based on Timur Gareyev’s game were difficult for the participants of the tournament. None of them have been solved properly, although some players provided their own solutions that partially met the conditions (games 3 and 5) and we are pleased to award them. We also assigned some distinctions for the games 1, 2 and 4, so practically the participants will receive awards for all the games.

Thank you for participation and we invite you to take part in the following edition of the Millionaire tournament while, in the meantime, you may participate in our other tournaments. We would also like to remind you about the 26th of December. Immortal Goldchess game, shown as diagram 2, only for the Millionaire participants. Due to very low turnout we had to reduce the prize, but still it is worth giving a try, as it is available only for you.

**Description
Claudo Boscheti Challenge**

The tournament commenced with a false start. The download of position 1 failed. We had to send it by e-mail to the players. Alex, distinguished in Goldchess games, sent in a victory in the 31

Solutions will be sent to the website>

Problem 1 – Łukasz Luba PL is the first, a victory in the 30

Problem 2 – Requirements: checkmate in the 33

Problem 3. Only 2 solutions. Task: draw in the 34

Summary: It came out that all the tasks based on the Claudio Boschetti-Aesbach game that started from one position proved to be very difficult for the players. We got only one correct solution of the first problem – Damian is the winner!

Nobody sent in a correct solution of the second problem so there is no winner. We received only one solution of the third problem, which was incorrect, but there was a draw two moves in advance and although the condition of sacrificing the queen has not been met, we give a distinction and a prize to Armenak.

No fan of Claudio’s has taken part in the game. That’s a shame, they don’t even know what they have missed. Goldchess provides fantastic emotions and experiences.

Generally, the turnout was rather poor. Therefore we reduced the prize fund, as we had announced 2 days before the tournament.

We invite you to take part in the Millionaire tournament and in the Genius Test on 26 December with the US$ 1,000. The game is free.

task1 – Damian solution

**Non Mix13 tournament is finished.**

Five beautiful tasks ending in checkmates. Seventh game of the Carlsen-Caruna match in Goldchess version. Goldchess… means to find another variant. The tournament was dominated by two chess players from Armenia: Hayk Yeritsyan and Alex Nurijanyan. The total turnout included 157 players but the rest was not able to cope. Maybe because the majority played for the first time. It takes some time to learn Goldchess. It’s not like that: I am good at chess so I will just come here and win. Many of the players have experienced today that it is not the case with Goldchess. We will show all the winning solutions under <Winners-Non Stop>.

Just a few words of explanations for the newcomers. We award not-author’s solutions up to the half of the announced prize, because the author’s solutions are not prepared by strong computers, whereas all the other solutions may be a product of a stronger software and we do not give awards to chess engines at all. From that perspective, we are very careful about non-author’s solutions and we award them with smaller prizes.

Tournament description:

First game. We start from the original position of the 7^{th}Carlsen-Caruna game after 9 moves. Nobody has sent in the correct solution. Hayk had checkmate in 22 moves, one move too late. Alex won in 21^{st} move but after the time limit have expired. We will show both games at Winners.

Second game. No author’s solution. Hayk was first with a checkmate in 24^{th} move,7 seconds ahead of the time limit. Alex was the second, one move less and a better solution, but way over the time limit, it took him 14 minutes. Time out. Only US$ 40 is awarded because it could have been done better.

Third game. 27 moves required. Hayk is the first and the only one to checkmate in the 27^{th} move. Non-author’s solution again. Half of the prize is awarded: US$ 60.

Fourth game. Non- author’s solution. Alex first, Hayk second, 27 moves, two moves ahead of us. Both players have sent in an identical solution. Alex is the winner, but wins only US$40 prize.

Fifth game. The easiest one, with both Armenian players sending in the exact author’s solution. No objections here – we pay the prize in full. First is Hayk, ready in 2 minutes (what a speed!), second is Alex, done in 4:49 minutes. Because both have sent in the author’s solution, the US$75 prize will be split in the following way: US$ 50 for the winner and US$25 for Alex.

Summary: the Armenian players knocked out all the other participants, that included chess players from Switzerland, Italy, India, Poland, etc. First game will be shown in diagram on Sunday, that is tomorrow. We invite everybody to take part in theClaudio Boschetti Challenge to be held on 1^{st} December, with only three tasks and US$2,000 prize pool (to be distributed in the following way: 500-500-1000).

2017-11-02

We would like to ask all the participants of the Non tournament to familiarize themselves with the amendments to the tournament rules and regulations, especially those in item 3 thereof.

**Non 43**

Today’s tournament will take only 8 minutes. First problems requires only 4 moves. So the participants will have as much as 2.5 minutes. On previous occasions the players used to send in the solutions in less than 1 minute. The prize is US$150.

Problem 2. The same game ad position, we are looking for a checkmate in 28^{th} move with the queen captured. US$ 250 to win. Not too difficult problems, both of them. How can the participants manage to solve them today? Let's have a look.

Problem 1. Ladies and Gentlemen this is the first time we have to write that: 1:0 for Goldchess. Nobody has sent a solution in 4 moves. Nobody, not one person. That's amazing. Only 4 moves have stopped all the players.

Problem 2.

Checkmate in 28 moves with the queen captured. Frist solution by Armenak, a very fast one, one minute three seconds. But it’s victory in 25 moves. Second solution by Lukasz Luba, victory in 28^{th} move and black queen is still swaggering on the chessboard. There is a third one, Armenak’s checkmate in 27 moves, one move ahead of us, but black queen has been saved. Forth one by LL, but after the timeout. 5 minutes and 8 seconds, a win in 26 moves but still without capturing the queen.

43^{rd} edition was a black Thursday for the players. Nobody has sent in a solution of the Problem 1. As for the Problem 2 none of the players has got even close to the correct solution. Shall we have an extra game on Sunday? We will keep you informed.

It was nice and sad at the same time to hear that nobody has solved the problems and everybody has failed.

The 44^{th} edition to be held next Thursday, November 9.

Feel invited,

2017-10-26

First and second solution, victory in 18 moves, without capturing the queen though. Third solution by Paweł Weichold, v18 with the queen captured, so he is the winner.

Is there any author’s solution? First one: checkmate in 25 moves, forced in 7, a masterpiece by IM Paweł Weichhold.

Second solution by GM Gianni, checkmate in 29 moves, forced in 9, not the author’s solution, either.

Third solution by Alex from Armenia, checkmate in 24th move, forced in 5.

Another one, Krystian Jacek, checkmate in 25th move, forced in 7.

Without getting the author’s solution we have to choose one of the above based on the quality of the game played. Who is the chosen one? We will announce it in… Winners.

Thanks to all of you for the participation. Feel invited for the next Thursday.

2017-10-16

**Non 41** - Thursday, 17.00 p.m. CET

We would like to welcome young but strong players from Armenia and Poland.

**Problem 1**

Checkmate in 30^{th} move, forced in 5 movements. We did not included it as a requirement because either we receive an author’s solution or we don’t

Let’s have a look. First solution sent in by Armenak. Victory in 27^{th} move, not what we expected. Second is Paweł Weichhold, checkmate in 30 moves, forced in 6, a nice one. The third solution is sent in by Lukasz Luba, victory in 24 moves, very fast from the provided position, then Paweł Weichhold again, other checkmate in 30^{th} move, also forced in 6. Yes, one of the Paweł’s solutions is the winning one, because others are sent in after the time-out.

**Problem 2**

Armenak is the first, victory in 31 moves, one move ahead of us, a formidable game, a genius level. Second solution sent in by Paweł Weichhold, also v31, a very nice victory, third solution also by PW, victory in 30^{th} move, even faster. Another one by Armenak, but checkmate in 34^{th} move, and time-out. Nobody sent in the author’s solution. This day belongs to two players.

Congratulations and see you next Thursday.

2017-10-12

Checkmate in 38, meticulous game of whites. US$ 250 to win. A lot of solutions, first by Armenak checkmate in 37th move, second by Paweł Weichhold checkmate in 37th move with the queen captured, third by Armenak again, checkmate in 36th move with capturing of the queen and this solution in awarded. Among the others we want to give a distinction to GM Gianni for a checkmate in 32 moves. The prize for non-author’s solution we split in US$75/$50.

For the third time in Non. We added another move to the position. And no solution has been sent in.

Congratulations for the winners

2017-10-05

Non39

In both problems the participants have to make 10 moves.

Problem 1. This one is easy, therefore the time limit is only 5 minutes, or to tell the truth it is as much as 5 minutes, which is a lot. US$ 150 to win. No author’s solution. First solution from IM Paweł Weichhold. Timing: 3.30 minutes. Checkmate in 28 moves, forced in 5. Two checks missing. Armenak is the second, checkmate in 27th move, forced in 2 (?). We still wait for the author’s solution. There is none. And, there is no checkmate with a bishop. So only distinction for IM Paweł Weichhold.

Problem 2. The prize amounts to US$ 250. A Petrosian’s game form the previous edition. We added two moves to the former positon. Only the author’s position may win. Is there one or not? Let’s see. 17:15 and we get a solution. Krystian Jacek, the winner of the previous edition of this problem is first again. He sent in a checkmate in 33th move – f5. But we were waiting for a victory in 34 moves. Next one is Alex Nurijanyan with a checkmate in 37 moves, forced in 6th. Both solutions are very good-looking but missing the point. The victory in 34th seems to be a difficult task. A little distinction for Krystian for his checkmate faster by one move than the victory that we were waiting for. US$ 50 goes to him.

And that’s all. See you next Thursday.

2017-09-28

A new paragraph has been added to the existing Rules.

3. Chess players playing their test games in the Non tournament using free licenses obtained from the Carousel may win a prize up to US$ 50.

**Non38**

Positions from another game of Kasparov – Petrosian

**Problem 1. **Checkmate in 36^{th} move capturing the queen or checkmate in 37^{th} move sacrificing the queen. US$ 150 prize.

Remember that the sacrifice may be accepted or not.

One solution by Armenak, with the queen captured, but after the deadline. Timing: 10:08. A symbolic prize of US$ 50.

**Problem 2, **v34. More difficult, the prize is US$250. From the position after 21 moves there are many possible victories in 34 moves. Therefore we presented the first move of the solution which eliminates all the easier variants. So there is no other way to win than by finding out the author’s solution. No solution at 17:21 yet. Still waiting. There is one! Krystian Jacek, time: 08:23, so he did it. Not the author’s solution, but a nice one.

Congratulations for both winning players.

2017-09-21

Today's problems are nice, fast and easy. Both use basic position from Kasparov's games.

**Problem 1**

For the fifth time in Non. We have added two more moves to the position today.

We finally get the author's solution! First to send in the author's solution is Krystian Jacek. Bravo!

**Problem 2. **Position from a game with Petrosian. Victory in 37^{th} move.

Petrosian seems difficult. 17:13 and we still don't get any solution. There is one! Armeniak, v36 so he is the winner here.

Feel invited to play with us next Thursday.

2017-09-14

No author’s solution whatsoever. However, there are many interesting and nice looking solutions that are worth mentioning. Checkmate in 34th move, a forced one, by Alex Nurijanyan, or the fastest one, checkmate in 32 moves by GM Gianni and Krystian Jacek. Krystian was just one step from the prize if only he had played his variant better. While testing his game, as we show it – we achieved a checkmate in 33rd move, but in a reverse order, by first capturing and then sacrificing the queen. In such a situation the winning solution is the checkmate in 37 moves, also in reverse order, first capture and then sacrifice, by Paweł Weichhold.

Congratulations to both winners.

As usual we invite you to play with us next Thursday. Remember that one hour before the tournament our wheel of fortune gives the opportunity to win 10 licenses, so 10 players may participate in the tournament for free.

**Non35-Blitz (September 9th) - **All licenses and promo codes of Thursday, valid.

Super easy problems, therefore prizes only up to US$ 150.

Positions form the game played by the 15-years-old Amelia Leonova from Belarus and Łukasz Luba from Poland during this year’s Akiba Rubinstein Tournament in Polanica, Poland, sent for the Beauty Contest in August and awarded with a prize. It comes out, however, that the games could have been played in a completely different way…

Problem 1. Position from the Łukasz’s game. **Here we play the blacks (**upon opening the position in CEEC, click Play – Play Black). Blacks played in this position R:g2+ followed by Bh3+, which is brilliant but does not lead to the fastest ending.

The task is to win in the 30^{th} move. Some may happen to win in 28 moves, but we do not give credit for such a solution because it would be dual CEEC in checkmate variant.

Who has solved it already? Let’s see…

The creator of the first game takes part in today’s tournament. Łukasz Luba was the first to send in his solution. Unfortunately it's not the one we were waiting for. Nest two solutions do not meet the requirements, either. Only the fourth one is like the author's solution. Krystian Jacek is the winner. Congratulations!

Problem 2. Position from the Amelia’s game. The original game ends up after 31 moves. We at Goldchess get from this position a checkmate in 28 moves. But the task in Non35 is- to win in 26 moves.

Let’s take a look: first solution - Łukasz Luba again. Not meeting the requirements. I have to tell this: Four players sent in the same solutions. But it's not the author's solution. No winner this time. The reason is very simple. Non-author's variants provide for the victory in 25th move. Armenak sent in such a solution, but after the deadline. So he gets only a distinction for this problem with a symbolic prize. We show the author's solution and invite you to the 36th edition of the Tournament next Thursday.

2017-08-31

**Non34**

Problem 1 – It was in Non29 before, now we try it the second time. We have shown the 30th move. We got only two solutions, both not identical with the author’s solution. Only the first one meets the 40 moves requirement. The winner is Armenak Yeghiazaryan, with the time of 2.55.

Problem 2 – For the fourth time in Non :). Players keep finding other solutions, faster than the author’s one. We have added one move. Who is going to match the author’s solution now? We review the solutions that have been sent in. No author’s solution among them. First and the best is a sprinter solution by Łukasz Łuba, checkmate in 27 moves, time 2:48. Distinctions earned by Armenak with m29 and GM Gianni with m30.

Congratulations for the winners and of course they get their Golchess ranking points.

2017-08-24

Problem 1

Only one correct solution - identical with the author's one. IM Pawel Weichhold, time: 4.35, first place, full prize of US$250. Congratulations!

Problem 2

For the third time in Non we added and showed 6 moves towards the solution. First position was after 13 moves, currently after 18 moves. First Armenak, checkmate in 30 moves, afterwards a series of checkmates by Alex, 36 and 39. No author's solution. So we award the best solution that has been sent in. This is the last solution, checkmate in 28 moves by GM Gianni, time 9.38. Congratulations.

See you next Thursday

PS. Of course, both players also receive additional points and prizes in Goldchess ranking.

**Non32, 17-08**

task 1 – Winner Alex Nurijanyan, Armenia

task 2 – winners Krystian Jacek PL, Armenak Yeghiazaryan Armenia

we invite for next week

2017-08-10

Problem 1 –m48, piece of cake. It was the same as v41 in Gold 0, just change 1 move and checkmate. This is really a task for a fast and well-oriented player who sends in his or her solution first, because anybody can solve it. The winner is Armenak Yeghiazaryan who shortened the author’s version by 3 moves! And the time: 1 minute 21 seconds! Bravo! The second place for Łukasz Luba. The same solution, time – 2:30. We split the prize: US$100 for Armenak, US$ 50 for Łukasz Luba

Problem 2 is a different story. Difficult. Anybody manages to solve it? Let’s see. Armenak first again. 7 moves ahead of the author! Time – 1:54. We have given an early position, after 13 moves. Too early. So Armenak found another, faster variant. Let’s wait and see if somebody sends in the author’s version.

Armenak is the winner for both problems. That’s his day! No author’s solution sent. But there is a distinction. For Krystian Jacek and his m29, beautiful and reckless game played with a great style. I have to be objective, though. Both solutions are not like the author’s version, so two prizes of US$ 100 for each. Congratulations for the winners. Kasparov is really inspiring!

As for the problem 2 – we will change the position and come back with it in next edition.

Feel invited.

PS. Of course, both players also receive additional points and prizes in Goldchess ranking.

2017-08-03

**Non30**

Today is a day for Great Chess. Both problems use positions from Kasparov’s games, namely games number 61 and number 223 from the Kasparov’s games collection.

Problem 1 – Checkmate with a pawn. Sorry the position for Problem 1 was given incorrectly. **We will repeat this problem during playoff on Sunday 10:00 CET. The licenses you bought to play in the tournament will remain valid.**

Problem 2 – Checkmate possible in 29^{th} move. The prize will be US$ 50, as the task is simple and easy. For the checkmate in 34^{th} move, forced checkmate in 7 moves, or a beautiful game we have the prize of US$ 300 because it is worth discovering a game that reflects both styles: the Kasparov’s concert style and the Korchnoi’s glutton style. In the shown position Kasparov moved 21.Sg5, probably instinctively and without a well-designed plan… and he lost. So at Goldchess, if you want to win you have to play in a different way.

Let’s see the solutions. Only one so far. Checkmate in 32, that’s not what we meant. Another one, checkmate in 35, forced in 6, not what was required. The rest of players – time out: the third one: checkmate in 33 and forth solution: checkmate in 30. A modest distinction for the solution number 2, checkmate in 35, forced in 6 authored by Alex Nurijanyan. Nobody has discovered the Korchnoi’s style.

Feel invited on Sunday to solve the Problem no. 1.

2017-07-28

**Non 29** – the Kasparov show

In the Non Stop Tournament, we continued solving problems starting from positions from Kasparov’s games.

Problem 1: Kasparov vs. Anikaev. A checkmate in 40 moves.

Today we continued after a break. Probably the time was unsuitable, as there were very few participants, and nobody sent in a correct solution. And the brilliant players were missing. :)

Dear Players. Problem 2 was a beautiful game. We could admire CEEC, as our little educational computer managed to play exactly in Korchnoi’s style. But Kasparov played in… Kasparov’s style. And the result was 1:0. :)

Here, however, no solutions were submitted at all. The players did not manage to handle Korchnoi’s style. :)

Join us on Thursday. We will be back with the Tournament starting at 5:00 p.m. CET.

2017-07-13

**Non28 – **

A Kasparov show, as announced. Position from world master's game. Just keep the style and win. We start from the same position in both problems.

Problem 1 - it is easy to win while keeping the queens, therefore our Problem provides for the exchange of queens. 10 solutions but none of them complying with the requirement. Everybody preferred to keep their queens. So we distinguish the nicest solution, by GM Gianni.

Problem 2. Checkmate with a pawn, Goldchess classic. Here the response is a modest one. Only two solutions received. We distinguisch the faster one. Checkmate 33. Armenian Yeghiazaryan

**Poland – Armenia 1:1 :)**

The next Non 29 tournament on 27 or 29 of July. Holidays. :)

See you when we come back**.**

**Non 27 description**

Today we had some fun, the games were easy.

Problem 1.

The winner was Armenak Yeghiazaryan from Armenia, who submitted in 1 minute 52 seconds a correct solution identical with the author’s one.

The second solution was submitted by Paweł Weichhold 2 minutes later. Both players were so overwhelmed that they mated with the queen on h8. And the checkmate was possible already on the h7 square.

Problem 2. Opening position from the Aronian-Giri game, a checkmate with two queens. Only one solution was submitted. It wasn’t the one proposed by the author, so it received only a modest distinction. Then we waited for other solutions. There are three author’s.

1. Manukyan,

2. Łukasz Luba,

3. Armenak 13.31 – time out.

Join us on Thursday the 13^{th} for the last edition of the Non tournament before a break. We will have a surprise for you.

Thank you

2017-06-29

**Non26. Description**

Problem 1. Only five moves to luck!

There is a lucky guy! Paweł Weichhold. Not author's solution, but a nice one. Second one, GM Gianni, only two seconds behind!

The same solution, only one-last move is different. Therefore Paweł is the winner, GM gets a distinction and a consolation prize of US$ 50. Congratulations!

Problem 2: We play until we get a proper solution. Today we continue with the problem that has not been solved during previous editions. Position after 16 moves and then after 22 moves.

Now we add 4 more moves and the players have the position after 26 moves. Piece of cake. And by the way, why all the players insisted on playing 25.Nd4 and not 25.f5 and 26Nf4 as in the position that is currently presented? Not even one player from the brilliant participants of Non25 has not discovered this variant? Very obvious, in our opinion. All right, let’s look for a correct solution.

Alex Nurijanyan is the first. 4 minutes 27 seconds. An interesting solution but not meeting the requirements. You were to win and sacrifice a queen. Who else will send in his or her solution? Nobody? Then Alex gets a distinction and a consolation prize of US$ 50.

Congratulations and let’s meet on Thursday. New tasks, news challenges.

2017-06-22

**Non25-description**

Today all the players have failed to meet the challenge.

Nobody has sent in a correct solution for Problem no. 1, from the position after 16 moves. Nobody has managed to solve the Problem no. 2 after 22 moves, either. For Problem no. 2 five chess players have sent the same solution, but no solution has complied with the set requirements. Therefore nobody has won the prize. There is one exception, though. Sargis Manukyan gets a distinction for his solution of the Problem no. 1.

We invite you to participate in the tournament next week.

2017-06-15

**Surprise in Non25**:

In this edition we teach and show how to play in Goldchess. The task is to checkmate in 35th move after winning and sacrificing the queen. The positions comes from a game played by Indian chess players Shete vs. Bajerani during the World Junior Chess Championship in 2014. Original position after 10 moves. In Goldchess problem no. 1 we show the position after 16 moves. We have shown 6 moves leading to the solution, to make it easier. US$ 250 prize to win.

If nobody solves the problem properly, there will be an opportunity to continue the same as Problem no. 2. We have added 6 more moves so the position will be after 22 moves. Here you can almost see the solution. The prize comes down to US$ 150.

If any of the participants solves the Problem no. 1, the prize for solving Problem no. 2 shall be decreased to a symbolic amount of US$ 50, available of course to any participant except the winner of the Problem no. 1

Feel invited.

Problems to be solved required average capabilities of amateur players.

Problem 1: Witty elimination of defenders with a bishop. Only one requisite to be met: winning a queen. But in this variant the Blacks offer it as a gift.

One correct solution by Alex Nurijanyan so he is the winner. Full prize in the amount of US$ 150.

Congratulations.

Problem 2: After several simple and logic moves a checkmate grid can be created which allows to checkmate the black king with three different pieces! In this case only GM Jasto have achieved the position that makes it possible. However, due to some inaccuracies in the Grand Master’s variant we cannot regard it as the author’s solution, therefore the prize is US$ 150.

------------------------------------------

2017-06-08

**Non23 description:**

Welcome!

Problem no. 1 - First and correct solution, checkmate with a knight. Time: 2.41. GM Gianni, full prize.

Problem no. 2 - No author's solution. Only the sixth solution complied with requisites: checkmate in 30th move winning a queen. Krysitan Jacek is the winner. Checkmate in 29 moves sent in by two players deserve distinction: GM Jasto and Łukasz Luba.

That's all, folks. See you next Thursday.

**Non22**

This was the easiest way to win US$ 500 in the whole history of Non tournament. The US$ 500 prize for the solution of two problems combined: victory in 25^{th} move and checkmate in 25^{th}move, both with sacrificing a rook and winning a queen. Nobody has sent in 2 solutions, nobody has sent even one correct solution. Therefore we announce a play-off on Sunday at 10.00 a.m. CET. The award will be only US$ 150 for both solutions together. Why only US$ 150? Because now the participants have 3 days for solving. The first one to send in both solutions shall be the winner.

**Non21 Report**

Today we continue with the unsolved problem from the previous edition. This time we have extended it into 2 problems: First: from the same position victory in 25 moves; Second: checkmate in 25 moves. Both problems have the same condition: you have to sacrifice a rook and win a queen.

One task – US$ 150 prize. But…Attention! For the solution of both problems sent in by a one player the prize will increase up to US$ 400!

The problems are witty and ingenious, and they differ by the first move.

Let’s have a look what has been sent.

No one sent two solutions. Nobody did the author's solution. Nobody sacrificed the rook.

Winners- GM Jasto-victory, Lukasz Luba-mate.

Congratulations, we invite on next Thursday

"Ranks and titles lose their power at Goldchess. All are equal and have equal chances"

**Stress less with Goldchess**

Chess is a beautiful game, but chess tournaments mean strong emotions and… plenty of stress. Or rather they did until Goldchess was invented.

Our tournaments are stress-free. If you don’t win in your first attempt playing in accordance with the Organizer’s guidelines, don’t worry. You can try again starting from the initial position.If you don’t win within the time limit set for a given game, that’s not a problem, either. You can win next time.You haven’t won, that’s true. But you **haven’t lost, **either, and we will never let you experience a taste of defeat.We guarantee full psychological comfort.

First one to buy a license was a U.S. player. Receives a bonus: free license for Non21. Welcome among the participants of the Non tournament and we wish you good luck. And to all the others, too, of course. :)

Today the we have a very international group. The core is made of Polish, Armenian, Chinese, American, Russian and French players. Quite a lot of “peepers” form other countries, but still not decided to play.

Today we have 2 problems to solve and a lot of fun.

Very easy. Simple position, endgame, checkmate with a pawn. We have given as much as 9 minutes, who’s first?

We have the first one to finish. It’s Łukasz Luba, best time but incorrect solution, v33. We are waiting for another one to finish. GM Jasto! Sending in the exact author’s solution, as required. A checkmate with a pawn, after beating all the black pieces. Let’s see. Time 1.57. Third is Alex Nurijanyan, a chess player from Armenia. The solution is correct, time 3.06.

GM Jasto is the winner. Congratulations!

Problem no.2

Less time, but still much too much. :)

Only 8 moves to make, but in this variant you have to sacrifice a rook and beat a queen.

Unbelievable! Only one solution within a given timeframe! Polish IM Paweł Weichold. Not an author’s solution, a rook has been sacrificed but the sacrifice has not been accepted. Nevertheless, it has been done, so that is OK, but the queen has not been beaten! Anyway, we shall award a prize for that effort and congratulate the master! :)

And that’s all for now.

2017-05-11

**Non19**

Rapid tournament. 2 problems to be solved starting from the same position. Time for solving: 4 minuts and 5 minutes respectively. First: victory in 23rd move. Remember that CEEC, our chessplaying computer has to display: resign.

Second: victory in 25th move, taking a queen.

Problem 1: We have the first solution. Polish Grandmaster Gianni. It's not like author's solution but accomplished in 23 moves. Time: 2.25!

Second solution - more than 9 minutes. Timeout.

For Problem 2 we have three solutions. First V23 with the queen taken. GM Gianni. The sceond one - checkmate in 24th move - that's missing the point. Another one also checkmate in 24th move. There is nothing more.

Mayby it was too fast? We will give more time for solutions during the next Edition.

Feel invited to participate in Non20. May 18, 17:00 hrs CET.

2017-05-06

Non18 tournament postponed. $ 3500 prize pool. We will inform.

2017-04-27

Three indisputable winners, although nobody submitting exact author’s solution. Therefore we will be presenting all the three author’s solutions.

Problem no. 1. Here the prize worth US$150 could have been won easily. The author’s solution consists in sacrificing the queen, but we did not impose it as a requisite because than the solution would have been a piece of cake. Nevertheless, nobody came up with the idea! The winning solution is that submitted by Paweł Weichhold, victory in the 38th move, without sacrificing the queen, so it was faster.

Problem no. 2. The most difficult of the whole set. But the players manager to solve it. The winner is GM Gianni, 4 moves faster.

Problem no. 4.

In the last moment we added the Problem no. 4 that has not been solved during Non16, checkmate in the 30th move. After the first move the solution is clearly visible, so the first move is the key. Who will find out? Position after 20 moves. Let’s wait and see.

Unfortunately nobody did. But this one is simple and efficient. Mate in the 28th move leads to a victory. The winner is GM Jasto.

Congratulations to all the winners. Have a look at the author’s solutions as well.

There will be no play-off today. **Join us next Thursday during the American Week starting on 23:00 hrs. CET with the prize pool of US$ 3,500**

2017-04-24

As regards problem 4, nobody submitted a solution identical with the author’s one, which includes a possibility of checkmate in the 30th move. No player has submitted any other solution with a checkmate in the 30th move, so there’s no winner. Similarly, we have received no solution to problem 1 which would be identical with the author’s one. Nevertheless, we would like to reward Manukyan with a honorable mention for his victory in the 30th move. That was an interesting concept of attack and… one move shorter than our solution. An honorable mention for the move 27.Ne7+ for problem 4 goes to the same author, Sargis Manukyan.

Join us on Thursday in the second edition of Non based on the same game.

2017-04-20

A little introduction. Goldchess is also about a correct showing of the position, meaning, that a moment needs to be selected when the solution variation is not immediately apparent, starting with a difficult and unusual move. But here there is also a trap, as then there are many moves and players discover other lines, also unusual and as it happened today in Task 1, as many as 5 moves earlier than the author a solution was delivered. There are 2 such solutions; winning GM Gianni, first time, and distinction for Krystian Jacek.

Task 4.

Similar to Task 1, no author's solution was found, players had too much of a choice for selecting the variations. M29 by Sargis Manukyan is a clear winner, involving a queen sacrifice. Distinction goes to GM Gianni for m28. Hence, there will be a Play Off of both games, obviously, upon having added a few moves of the author's solution. We want someone to discover those variations.

Play Off,

Sunday 10.00 CET

Everybody is invited!

2017-04-13

**Non 15 Report**

Task 1.

First solution by Lukasz Luba, m20. Unfortunately, the topic unfulfilled, instruction was to find v17, morever, from this position on there is m18! Second solution in order by GM Gianni, time 2.33, exactly author's solution, and it wins! congrats to the Polish GM! No more search.

Task 4.Here involving a queen sac, Tal's trick, did someone make it to solve? If not, play off is waiting.

Let's check. So far I only see 2 solutions. First time, Armenak 2.15., m22, but without queen sac. Second, 4.11, Lukasz Luba, m27, but also without queen sac. Let's keep waiting. Here the time for solution is 8 minutes. Twice as long as in the first one. We remind, that the task's instruction was, m25, with a queen sac. Without sac we have in Goldchess in this task m21. Two extra solutions came in, after time, 8.44, Pawel Weichold, let's see. Unfortunately, the same solution as Lukasz Luba, time 13.20, unfortunately v21.

THERE WILL BE PLAY-OFF, Sunday 10.00 CET.

Feel invited!

Drawn game Janaszak-Carlsen is of course an Internet joke for the Fool's Day April 1st that we fell for. :)

But problem based on the position was created. Who solved? Incredible! One solution in time, bad, v25 instead of m28, rest is time-out, nobody solved #1!

2017-04-05

Play-off always takes 3 days, from Sunday till Wednesday. In the Play-off Tournament no. 13 nobody has sent us the author’s solutions. But it happens that the players step by step start to understand what Goldchess is about. For the Problem no. 1 we would like to distinguish the solution sent in by Armenak Yeghiazaryan, who did not comply with the requirements, but the checkmate in 22 moves after sacrificing 2 rooks makes it 3 moves ahead of us. Therefore we will show the author’s solution.

For the Problem no. 5 we have two games of a player we would like to mention. We remind that our timeless Problem no. 5 requires a checkmate in 31st move with the pawn moved from f4, after having sacrificed 4 pieces. In the first game that has been sent in none of the conditions had been met, the checkmate was performed in 33rd move but not with a pawn and after having sacrificed 5 pieces! In the second game, the checkmate was achieved in 31st move, with a pawn from g4, but this time without sacrificing a single piece. Of course the player forced himself to prolong the game (in our test this variant ended in a checkmate executed in 29th move) but only in order to make a checkmate with a pawn, which is completely justified in this case. It comes out that it resulted very difficult to have everything combined in one game. Nevertheless we award the distinction to Sargis Manukyan from Armenia!

Congratulations

Goldchess solution

2017-04-01

13th edition stopped the players! And we warned! Even though the authors of Goldchess are not infallilble, this time though their predictions did come true. All the immortal games defended themselves. Nobody solved any of the 5 problems. That doesn't mean there will be no prizes though. Poor ones, but still.

From the 14th edition on there will be a new Goldchess formula introduced. Fun-easy games. Lesser prize funds, but easier problems. For the players to start winning regularly.

Reporting:

Task 1. m22 involving winning the queen on c4. We agree, tough one, 7-8 on a scale to 10. Solution we may otherwise award, this time no award, as another player sent a dual solution. They think the same, or they have the same computer program helping?

Task 2. Checkmate on c4, nobody sent any mate. No prize.

Task 3. Checkmate involving queen sacrifice. Distinction as well as awarded. Pawel Weichhold involing sac-ing the queen. And 6 moves faster than us. $200.

Task 4. Checkmate involving sacrificing and winning the queen. Nobody fulfilled conditions. But there is one which we would like to award, Lukasz Luba, reverse order, first winning and then sacrificing. Checkmate not on 29 but on 31. But a gem. Best solution of this edition. $250. Congratulations!

Task 5. m31 with f4 pawn, with sacrificing of 4 pieces. Transcendental problem. Just as we wrote, chessplyaers won't solve this until in 600 years. Without a prize.

General thing. Players submitted a ton of the so-called “doubles”, same solutions with different move orders, which may suggest that strong computer programs assissted the players. And those “assissted” solutions are not awarded. But as we say from the start, strong comps don't help anybody. That's because Goldchess problems are not susceptible to them. :) The program may deliver some solution, but not involving the conditions.

Thanks Everyone for numerous participation. The $5000 prize fund was a great magnet. And the participation in our great tournament.

We invite You All to next edition, and the Play Off! On Sunday!

2017-03-26

Due to technical reasons, this edition set off with a 1 minute delay, for which we apologize.

Task 1. Time 3 minutes, but only 5 moves to make. The first solution was IM Pawel Weichhold's, exactly that of the author. One problem though, the time allowed was crossed. However, due to the little mess with the time at the beginning of the round, which should not let the player not make the time limit, we will find some space to award this solution. Another solution, downloaded during the time of the 2nd round, and not author's, will not be awarded. Rest of the solutions made in more than 17 minutes.

Task 2. No author's solutions, no conditions fulfilled by any of the submitted solutions. Best was Krystian Jacek with m32, forced with a bishop in 7 moves, and Alex Nurijanyan, m32 forced in 7 moves. 2 x $100.

Task 3. v39.f6, no winner. Nobody played 24.Qf4 like the author, with a queen sacrifice. In Tasks 3 and 4 we purposefully didn't reveal the extra condition, queen sacrifice, as the problems would be too easy then (sacrifice already on move 2!), and to finish in 1 minute. Too bad nobody has conceived of that. In Task 3 I can understand, but Task 4 is Tal's corner, and it's clear that fireworks are to be expected. Krystian Jacek was close, but he missed it too. Two distinctions, GM Gianni, v31 and GM Jasto, v35 forced in 8 last moves. 2 x $100.

Task 4. Tal's corner, we know it. We have a beautiful queen sacrifice, but no solution features it! And no conditions fulfilled. 2 distinctions for Pawel Weichhold, 1st, and Krystian Jacek, 4th, for solutions closest to Tal's style. Here also Krystian missed a queen sac on the 2nd move. 2 x $100.

Task 5. No solutions submitted in the allowed time fulfils the condition of queen sacrifice, except for the 3rd, by Alex Nurijanyan, m35. This solution would win among the non-author's solutions, if he had submitted m34 winning a queen, which actually was possible, as we have found it. Another distinction, v36 GM Jasto almost winning the queen.

Russian week, but players from Russia were few and unsuccessful. No player submitted a solution, not even in the allowed time. Altogether, a weak and perhaps the worst edition from the side of the players', solutions without conditions fulfilled, hence very tough to evaluate from the awarding standpoint. Hence, not many prizes. Under a big questions mark is now the next week's edition Non Stop 13, with prize pool of $5.000, but much harder problems than this edition. Here there were problems like thunder, but only a little rain came. Under the Winners tab, we show all (except for 1st) author's solution of this edition. This was supposed to be a brilliant edition, based on games of Karpov and Kramnik, games at their level. Well, too bad.

Thanks Everyone for participation!

2017-03-18

Task 1.

First solution, non-author's Levon H, time 1.06. Fast and one move faster than us, but there ain't none of this author's brilliance here. Half prize, and now only author's solution can qualify for the other half. Who will submit first? Second time Krystian Jacek, m29, but also non-author's, not this. Let's keep searching. Third, a well-known GM, m29 similat to that of the winner's, but it's still not author's. Search is on. Fourth time, Manukyan, failed, tho nice, v25, fifth and last Alex Nurijanyan, there we go! Not exactly author's, but the key brilliant author's move is there, after which there is no defense, 25. Rg5! It's there, we acquiesce. Second half of the prize, barely. 2.40, 20 seconds ahead of the flag. So it is possible! In 3 minutes! Excellent test for the players themselves.

Task 2.

Again, first time Levon from Armenia, 1.25. Must be his day. It happens. Ladies and Gentlemen, he did submit the author's solution! Full prize. Congrats! Second also author's! Polish GM, but too late. At author's only one player wins.

Task 3.

First, Krystian Jacek, not author's, but queen scored, half prize pocketed. Time 2.03. and checkmate on move 26, faster by one move than the author, with bishop ok, fine. Let's look for author's! Second, again Polish GM, m24 without winning the queen. He was close tho. Third, Levon, distnction, fastest, m22. And yes! 5Th, and last Armenak Yeghazariyan, 4.32. and he did make it, as 5 minutes for the task it was. Almost author's, qualifies. We will show the difference. Congrats!

Task 4.

Gaining and sacrificing a queen. First, Polish, Lukasz Luba. Bad, no conditions, but only he submitted, and 2 solutions to that! Ladies and Gents, it was so close! He missed the last move, let's take a look, he should have played 29. Qd5 and the computer was resigning. Other than that, time 5.59, time out, here it was 4 minutes. But we will award, consolation prize of $100.

Task 5.

As predicted by Goldchess, nobody solved. But there is one solution, albeit m25, and the task asked to solve m24. Polish GM Gianni. In this case, as it was the only solution submitted, we willaward $200, as the task's prize was $1000. Congrats!

Levon sent yet. One move later.

Levon sent yet. One move later.

Our solution of m24 in this position still holds, unsolved. We will let it rest, let the players beef up. Maybe one day it will be back.

It is instructive to go and look into the Tab Analysis, under “We learn Goldchess”, there you can find precious hints, how to play and how to win. Goldchess is now level, and world brand. But still, everybody can win. Last week, we had a 12 year old Indian boy winning a whole Goldchess event in Mumbai!

The tournament was beautiful!

We thank Everybody for playing, and invite you to our Russian Week next week, Non 12. Beautiful Goldchess games exampled by Karpov and Kramnik's games. They wait for their explorers!

Feel invited!

2017-03-13

The 11th Edition of the Non Stop Tournament with a prize pool of $2,000 will start soon. It will be a training before the serious 12th Edition of the Tournament during the Russian week. This edition is for the fast and the furious. Blitz games lasting for 3 to 5 minutes. The whole Tournament will last for 25 minutes.

Game 1 will last for 3 minutes. A simple problem, one "wow!" move to be made.

Game 2 is a dream of any chess player. A forcing mate in the 5th move is required. Time: 3 minutes.

In Game 3, after you capture the queen, the remaining part will be extremely simple. Time: 5 minutes.

Game 4 is a Tal story, typical of the Goldchess style. Only 6 moves to be made, but in those 6 moves you will have to capture and sacrifice the queen. It will be so easy! Time: 4 minutes.

Game 5. The players have already failed to solve this problem twice. We will put $1,000 at stake for the third time. We have given this game a pet name of “Players’ nightmare”. Time: 10 minutes.

Our March Goldchess Tournament in India (Mumbai, see the REPORTS tab) was won by a 12-year-old boy with a rating of only 1400 ELO.

Goldchess, chess for everyone.

Feel invited!

Task 1 – First 3 solutions, all author's. First time 3.35, second 6.15 (Polish player). The winner (receiving the whole prize of $200) is Levon Hambardzumyan from Armenia. Congrats!

Task 2 – Only one solution, GM Jasto. Not author's, but involving a queen sacrifice, prize of $200.

Task 3 – Nobody submitted a checkmate with bishop solution. Hence, we award the first, m22, and second – faster, m19. GM Jasto PL - $100 and Alex Nurijanyan from Armen ia - $50.

Task 4 – only submitted by GM Jasto, m27, forced, with bishop. There is no bishop requirement, it is forced in 8, but in 23 actually. Our test lowers the prize as there is a faster solution possible than that of the GM and we win a queen. Pize of $100. Second solution, Pawel Weichhold, m22, forced in 7, but it does involve the bishop mating. It's prettier, hence the same prize of $100.

Until now, only Task 1 features author's solutions.

And they a bit forgot that it is the Tal's corner. We will also show author's solutions.

Task 5 – many solutions. The first one after just 1.56!!! By Lukasz Luba, PL, but it was m28, and the task was to find v27. Let's see on. The second one by the same player, v24, better. 3.03. Next, GM Jasto m24, 4.04. Also not fulfilling the theme, but it's very fast. Another thing is CEEC made a double solution here, it played 17...Rf7 to the author, and in the solution, 17...h6 was played after 17.e4. This rarely happens, but here we go. Hence, we will award. The rest of the solutions do not complete the theme and are much worse.

Prizes?? It's hard to decide. We will apportion $300 from the Non-author's pool price, Lukasz Luba - $200 and Jasto - $100. We will also show author's solution.

And … with great sadness, we acknowledge, that players from India did very poorly. In Task 5, the 8th player, Rahat Mhatre, v25, then 12th – Rakesh Ramakant, also v25, and 16th, Shubham Ved, m24, the same as the awarded GM Jasto. Did he peek? ;)

Today, in Mumbai, a Goldchess Mumbai Open was organized, and it was won by a 9-year-old boy, Kris, rating 1400 ELO only!. Right after the tournament, the players sat with Non Stop 10. As we can see, without any results. And Goldchess is soo simple, even for amateur players. Please take a look at the Analysis medal – We learn Goldchess. It contains the key to understanding Goldchess, as well as a receipt for … winning! :) Plus our book, “How to beat a computer in chess”. Good luck!

Goldchess is joy. We are happy when the players submit author's solution, we are also happy when they bring us better solutions, prettier than those of the author. And we award.

With cordial greetings,

Goldchess team

Looking at a non-author's solution, I am never sure, who plays by themselves and who uses a strong engine. Archimedes :)

Task 1. Appears difficult, 21 moves to make. However, in the solution, the capturing of the queen is immediately apparent in the first 3-5 moves, and the rest is just a matter of an effective technique. However, due to the striking 21 moves, we gave as much as 15 minutes here for the Tas.

And there is the first solution! Not author's solution. It's a great surprise. The conditnions, capturing the queen and last move Qh6# all observed. And to that, checkmate on move 22, whole 6 moves ahead faster! Incredible, but also obvious, a GM solved it. Congrats to GM Jasto!

However, there is also the Time-Out! (15 minutes, 31 sec.) Pawel Weichhold's. Unbelievable solution and we decided to make an exception off the regulations, and award this solution. $50.

And, Sammed Shete, India, 2 hours 50 minutes. Timeout, knock-out. But, as the only player, he managed to win the queen, like the author. Distinction and $25.

Task 2. funny hint of Goldchess here. And also an IQ test as well as attention test, as knowing our site as well as where to find past solutions was crucial here. The position comes from the previous edition, where we asked the players to find a checkmate on move 27 involving the sacrifice of two rooks for a bishop. The solution is shown in the Non8-4 Play Off. And now it was just a matter of changing move 26, and the solution remained the same! $250 to take! And and … incredible finish! Levon Hambartsumanian of Armenia surpassed another player, the Polish Lukasz Luba by 17 seconds! And he is the winner. Both solutions almost author's solutions!

Task 3. How to find a prescription to trick CEEC? Dear players,.. what an incredible day! One non-author's solution, and Armenak Yeghazariyan of Armenia managed to Upload it … 3 seconds before the time passed!

Task 4. This is Tal's corner, traditionally … Tal's soul! One solution, non-author's, Pawel Weichhold, there is a bit of Tal here... but not enough.

Task 5. Also a surprise, Task from previous Saturday, position from Vidit's game, which the players managed to solve a whole move faster than the author. Now, the author gave 4 extra moves hint, and let's see … $1.000 prize is waiting. :)

It's 18.14 CET, and … no solution of 5th Task submitted... is it coming, or not? Our Team also has adrenaline flowing through its veins. :) Conditions, instructions: checkmate on move 42, involving the capturing of a queen. And there is a solution! But... it's m44, unfortunately! Out. Too bad. $1.000 has passed by the players' noses this time.

Among the players who did not win a prize this time, we will randomly draw a free license for next week's edition. Thank you for Your participation!

Overall, Poland-Armenia 2:2, with a tiny bit of favor for Poland :)

We announce Play-off!

Goldchess Team

2017-03-03

**Dear Players**

In non8-4, play off, your task was to checkmate in the 27^{th} move, with an exchange of 2 rooks for a bishop. You submitted your own variants, with a checkmate in the 25^{th} move. One solution was a checkmate in the 24^{th} move.

Nevertheless, none of them was awarded a prize, as the Goldchess author tested the solutions and shortened one of them to a checkmate in the 23^{rd} move.

Therefore, it is the only non-author’s solution that would qualify for a prize.

The author’s solution and a test-checkmate in the 23^{rd} move are presented in Winners-Non8-4.

author's solution

**Non Stop 8 – Report**

Introduction

The Indian week. Here we had a dilemma. To keep the level of problems at its current level, or lower it to that of 5-year olds? We have naturally concluded, that India is a country with deep chess tradition with tremendous intellectual potential, and that Goldchess problems are definitely within the reach of chessplayers whose range goes from 1500 FIDE, even including some talented complete amateurs. Hence, there is no need to make a special, easier, edition.

Besides, the problems are composed based on the games of GM Vidit and GM Grover and the level of difficulty comes directly from the particulars of the positions. Of course, Tasks 4 and 5, $750 each, are more difficult according to our estimates, but with this sort of prize, they need to be so. Whether they actually were more difficult or not, however, will be decided by the players.

We only changed the awarding method.

1. We increased the prizes by raising, for this particular week, the prizes for non-author's solutions above the usual half-prize level.

2. In Non 8, 2-3 players will be rewarded. And so, if an amateur Indian player submits a solution first, and if a professional Indian player submits a solution as second in order, they both get the prizes, 1st and 2nd respectively. If, however, a non-Indian player submits the solution first, and then both an Indian amateur and Indian professional submit their solutions, a total of 3 prizes will be awarded.

**Let's start the report!**

Problem 1 - v39 was the requirement; Krystian Jacek clinches the task, v34 submitted and as first to that.

Problem 2 - no author's solution. Two solutions, m39, but only one fulfills the Qb5 conditios. GM Jasto takes it all. The most beautiful solution to the 8th edition. II prize-distinction, Sammed Shete, India

Problem 3 - requirement, m25. One non-author's solution, GM Zaven Andriasian from Armenia, but after the time limit. In this special situation, the famous Armenian GM does get a prize of $100 though.

Problem 4 - here the players totally mishandles the problem, nobody submitted any solutions. The requirement was m27 with the extra conditions that two rooks be sacrificed for a bishop. The best, m29, did not satisfy the extra condition. No prize.

Problem 5 - better situations here, required m42, two m41 solutions submitted. Three consolation distinction prizes for Maria Gevorgyan, Sargis Manukyan i Łukasz Luba.

Ladies and Gentlemen, sadness struck us. We organized an Indian week, we granted 50 licenses to the Indian players via our Patron Vidit, and… only one a correct solution, by Sammed Shete. Goldchess so far away... And so far away from Goldchess...

The heroes of the Indian week were... Polish players. Their solutions, games 2 - GM Jasto and 5 - Luke Luba, are the pearls of chess, and pearls of Goldchess.

congratulations

2017-02-22

In February Goldchess will have the Indian Week in the Non Stop Tournament. In March we will organize the Russian Week and the American Week in April. The players form the host countries will receive 50 free licences for the participation in the Non Stop tournament.

In India the licenses will be distributed by our patron GM Vidit Gujrathi, in Russie by the "64" chess magazine and there you should apply for free licenses at goldchess2017@yandex.ru.The licenses will be awarded to first 50 players but if the number of apllicants is significantly bigger we may organize a draw.

2017-02-18

Non 7, Play-off:

Many solutions, so what do we get?

in Problem 1, one non-author's solution, not a "clean" queen capture, black gives away the queen himself. We naturally accept these captures too, however, in the author's solution, a more "clean" capture is shown, where white actually wins the queen.

In Problem 4 two solutions with m25 have been submitted, as well as one m24. It turns out that CEEC truly is like a little boy sometimes, and can be easily “fooled." We are proud of those solutions, but Tal, not so much. The checkmate comes on move 28 in the author's solution, which is a long stretch from m24, but there is the Tal's beauty, which doesn't show in the submitted solutions.

Besides, in the Play-off, in general we will be rewarding only author's solutions, others in exceptional situations.

Hence, we still wait for someone to solve Problem 4 in Tal style to score $250.

Non Stop 7, February 18th.

Today 2 hits of the 7th edition: games played originally by Anand and by Vidit Gujrathi.Both of them ended in a draw.At Goldchess, we found variations on both games where White win.And this is the task for players.Vidit’s game in 4, that is in Tal’s corner, Anand’s game in Great Masters room.Polish Grandmaster, Jacek Stopa, played White against the World Champion.Problem 4 requires the players to win in Tal’s style to receive a prize of $750 and a precious title of Goldchess Tal.

In problem 5 - Botvinnik’s maneuvers.The prize is also $750.

Let's begin our Report:

Problem 1 - nobody submitted the author's solution, v40 involving winning a queen. Many solutions v39 have been submitted, one v37 and this is the one to receive a consolation prize. The task will be active with the prize of $100.

Problem 2 - one solution by Alex Nurijanayan, m28, really nice, but missed the theme and the time was up anyway. There would be a prize here had the player gotten the solution faster

Problem 3 - one solution submitted, by Manukyan, one move faster than us. Full prize for non-author's solution of $100.

Problem 4 - excitemen! position from the game of our Patron, GM Vidit, $750 prize, Tal style problem. Unfortunately, no Tal of Goldchess has appeared, nobody submitted any solution m28, one v24 shown. The task will be active with reduced prize $250.

Problem 5 - one non-author's solution submitted. Effective destruction of CEEC, prize of $250.

In the play-off tasks 1 and 4 are active. Feel invited!

Goldchess team

2017-02-11

In the Play-off of Non Stop 5 Tournament, Lukasz Luba of Poland sent author's solution on Thursday. This resulted in the players' scoring a total of $1350 in the 5th problem of Non Stop 5!

In Non Stop 6, with a prize pool of $2100, and 4 easy games, only one tough task.

In Non Stop 5th edition we treated the players in a slightly lenient way in the 5th problem, giving only one condition, that the queen be sacrificed. And 3 players submitted their solutions, none of which was the author's solution. Hence, today the task was back in play! We added an extra condition this time, that the queen be captured too, raising the bar of the task. Hence, the position from the game Wojtaszek-Caruana is back, checkmate on move 33, with both queen sacrifice as well as queen capture. Since the bar has been raised, so was the prize money, all the way to $1.500!

Task 4 is Tal's corner, where we try to put up brilliant games. In Task 5 we gradually develop the Room of the Masters. In the next edition, a game played by the former World Champion, Viswanathan Anand, will be featured.

Let's start the report!

Let's start the report!

Problem 1 – Nobody sends author's solution. The first player to submit is Manukyan of Armenia, but the solution missed the theme, as it was m21, but still the best, as the competition sent m22. The task was to find m22, however, and the first player to have done it was Pawel Weichhold. Hence, Pawel gets $50, and consolation prize for Manukyan of $25.

Problem 2 – nobody found the author's solution, however, this problem was a great blackout by Goldchess, as GM Jasto from Poland found a solution in only 2 moves, v17 instead of v24! Indisputable win of GM Jasto.

Problem 3 – Nobody submitted any solution, the Play-off is on!

Problem 4 – one solution, and author's to that! Pawel Weichhold wins full prize.

Problem 5 – no author's solution. The first two solutions have average quality. The first, GM Jasto, gets $400, second, Manukyan, $100 consolation prize. Author's solution still unshown.

The Play-off will hence feature Problem 3 and we await the author's solution.

We invite Everybody to try and solve Problem 3; new license needs to purchased beforehand.

With greetings to Players!

Goldchess Team

Licenses for the tournament Non Stop, No Limit - for all the games, and single, can be purchased in advance, at least one hour before the start of the tournament.

2017-02-04

Excitement … excitement... for us too! :)

This time it was a European week. No players from India or China. Instead, a few brilliant players, among them today's best Krystian Jacek.

Problem 1: two players submitted author's solutions, first GM Jasto, time 5:13, second Krystian Jacek 6:33.

Problem 2: only one player, Krystian Jacek. However, without winning the queen, no prize.

Problem 3: first four solutions identical, prize only for the first player, Krystian Jacek

Problem 4: one solution only, but aurhor's solution: Krystian Jacek

This player truly shows an incredible shape tonight. But will he solve the 5th too?

$1.000 is a nice lump sum for the 5th problem. Here, we need to play the game Wojtaszek-Caruana, and sacrifice the queen. Problem 5: Krystian didn't make it, didn't submit any solution. We had, however, three winners here. They all brought something original and beautiful, so I am obliged to award all 3 of them. It is surprising, that 3 distinct solutions were submitted, and the author's solution is still different from all of those! Beautiful!

The first and the winner, GM Gianni. Synthetic, correct solution to the problem. Unexpected queen sacrifice.

Two distinctions go to: GM Jasto for the nicest solution, the beginning just like the winner, but then forced mate in 7 moves, a truly virtuoso solution.

Sargis Manukyan, originality bonus.

And this is it for tonight. Congratulations to the winners, and we invite everybody to the future editions of our weekly Non Stop tournament!

Problem 2 is still active for players; new license need to be purchased to continue solving this problem.

**A short account of Non Stop 4 Tournament**

We are impressed.Beautiful solutions, new, efficient, creative and brilliant players, GM Sahaj Grover from India and Levon Hambardzumyan from Armenia. Yet, the tournament was won by the old players.The new ones could not understand the meaning of *victory*.It is explained in multiple locations on our website, so it was not our fault.But let me provide some additional explanation.A *victory *is a win where the computer surrenders and displays a *–resign-* message after the last move of the white.**A winning position is not enough.**

To make things absolutely clear: it can happen that, let’s say, the computer surrenders one move before a checkmate to a player playing a variant other than the one required by the author, which is, for example, a checkmate in the 30th move.If that is the case, even though the checkmate is imminent, the computer has not been actually checkmated and the solution cannot be counted as a checkmate.A checkmate is a must.

Let me also remind you that as a maximum a half of the prize is awarded for solutions other than the author’s one.

Now, let’s discuss the fourth in this year edition of the Non Stop 4 Tournament.

Problem 1 - only four moves to make. No correct solution was provided.

Problem 2.

In the previous edition of the Tournament there were 3 problems to solve: capture the queen in the 20^{th} move and, starting from that position, achieve a *victory *in the 29^{th} move and a mate in the 33^{th} move.Nobody managed to find out how to capture the queen in the 20^{th} move, so today we’ve shown the solution and continued with the v29 and m33 problems.

v29 – Problem 2.

Sahaj was the first to submit a solution. Unfortunately, it was an incorrect one, a certain position with no *–resign-* message displayed.

Manukyan from Armenia submitted a solution as the second player. Nevertheless, it was an irrelevant one - a mate in the 29^{th} move.But it was a good solution to Problem 3.

Only the third solution was correct. It was submitted by a brilliant player from Poland, Krystian Jacek, who is the winner.

Problem 3. A difficult choice amongst many nice solutions.However, only 2 of them fulfilled the prerequisite of capturing the queen in the 20^{th} move.And it was so simple.Just 2 moves… The undisputable winner would be Łukasz Luba, as he had the best, unbelievable time of one minute and six seconds. But he captured the queen in the 21^{st} move, so no prize could be awarded.The authors of the 2 solutions in which the queen was captured as required are the winners.

1. Krystian Jacek – the most beautiful game, a forcing mate in 8 moves.

2. GM Gianni – a mate with a knight in 32 moves.

An honorable mention went to Sargis Manukyan, who was the fifth player to submit a solution. His solution was the quickest one, with a mate in the 28^{th} move, but he captured the queen only in the 26^{th} move.

Problem 4-v27, a position from the Wojtaszek-Caruana game. Nobody managed to solve it.We received two incorrect solutions. But we would like to mention Levon Hambardzumyan, whose solution included a mate in the 29^{th} move, last 5 moves are forced. A nice solution.

And the hit of the Non Stop Tournament - Problem No. 5.With a prize of $1,000 for a solution identical with the author’s one.Nobody submitted such a solution, but we chose two solutions and awarded prizes for their beauty. You must see them! Medal Winners-Non4-5.

As an exception, we would like to show also an unsolved author’s problem, as the two rewarded solutions impressedus very much and we would like to show that we can play chess, too.J

It’s amazing that nobody managed to solve Problem 1, which required only 4 moves.So, we leave the Problem available for solving. The person who is the first to submit a correct solution will be awarded the full price.New players can try to solve Problem 1 as well. Entry fee: $2.

Feel invited to play

Non4-4 Levon Hambardzumyan

2017-01-27

And in the Non Stop 4 Tournament on Saturday we are playing the games of the great masters. Task 4 - position from Wojtaszek - Caruana 2015 game, prize US$ 400 and task 5 - Capablanca - Bernstein 1911 game, with the prize worth of US$ 1000.

Feel invited to play.

2017-01-21

The results were generally poor. Maybe that's because players from India, USA and Russia did not take part?

Problems 1 (with a prize of $300), 2 and 3 (2 x $150) were interconnected.The first problem was to capture the queen in the 20th move, and that solution was the key to problems 2 and 3, as they required the players to win in 29 moves and to checkmate in the 33th move, starting from the position which was the solution to problem 1.

However, nobody provided the author’s solution to problem No. 1, so there was no “continuation” in solving problems 2 and 3.

At the same time it turned out that the players submit solutions that simply “come out”.

Problem 1 - the unquestionable winner was LevonHambardzumyan.That 19 years old player from Armenia was the quickest to capture the queen. He did that in the 18th move.

Problem 2 - the winner was GM Jasto, who won in the 20th move (the shortest solution) after capturing the queen.

Problem 3 - no winner.Here the drawback of solutions other than the author’s one became apparent.The players submitted checkmates in 28, 27, and 26 moves.But after a Goldchess revision which revealed in one of those solutions a checkmate in the 23th move, all the solutions were rejected.That was done in accordance with the Goldchess Rules and Regulations.

Problem 4 - that was a very difficult one, not solved in other games. Nobody submitted a solution.

Problem 5 – a single solution, different than the author’s one, was submitted.It was a correct one.Nevertheless, as it was not a solution identical with the author’s one, and after a comparison with the quality of the author’s solution, the prize was reduced to $150.

Solutions other than the author’s one are not always worse.If they are better, we admit that and award a prize.Even double ones, as in Gold 0 Problem 3, where we awarded the Super Genius title and, of our own volition, a double prize.Check out that solution by Hayk Yeritsyan and you will understand at once what is most important and valuable for Goldchess.

To sum up, in this Non Stop 3 edition the players won only $375 out of a pool of $2100.You must admit that it’s not an impressive result.But we need to look into the future with optimism.Things will become better.And that’s what we wish you.Sincerely, as Goldchess is about the fun of creating the beauty of chess, and we want you to create it with us and win.

Nobody solved tasks 3, 4 and 5. Therefore, Gold5 is temporarily closed; instead we have prepared Gold0 where there is no license fee and the tasks are easier.

He won $1000 and the title of Bronze Brain Titan. Task has been replaced. Here's the player's solution .

2012-10-02

**Sensation in Gold13!**

$ 10 000 in Goldchess!

gelu1001 is the player who solved two tasks, the 8th and 11th, one move earlier than the author did, and sent both the solutions in one mail. Thus, he complied with the provisions of Gold13 Terms and Conditions and won $ 10 000!!!

Congratulations!

All in all, 6 games have been solved in Gold13. 2 of the above together and 4 one by one. The players have won $ 14 000! It is a huge success.

**The tasks were exchanged for new ones; there still is a full set of 13 games, and the main prize of $ 100 000 for solving 3 tasks and sending their solutions together is still waiting for the winner.**

Ps. Statistics. Definitely the tasks of even number resist, and... no. 13, since 2, 4, 6, 10, 12, 9 and 13 have remained from among the previous tasks. Will the new exchanged tasks of odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 11) and even 8 be an equally easy prey for other players? Immediate future will tell.

In attachment-Files there are games 8 and 11. Position, author’s game, player’s solution.

Round XIV

Nobody expected that!

Carlsen - Svidler: 0-1. Carlsen loses the second game playing white! Incredible. Until recently, among Grandmasters there was a recipe for winning tournaments: win as white and draw as black. Here the world turned upside-down.

But…Ivanchuk - Kramnik: 1-0

Carlsen is first. We have the pretender.

Let's show Carlsen how easily his 14th game could have been won.

Mate in 26

As white Carlsen earned 3.5 point, as black he earned as many as 5!

What will Anand's strategy be? Win as black, draw as white.

However, with Carlsen it won't be so easy...

Winner - Grosmaster

2013-06-29

**Round XIII**

Phew! Radjabow - Carlsen: 0-1

Kramnik draws with Gelfand. Equally. Speculations are running rampant. Who's going to be the pretender???

A strong and brilliantly played game by Carlsen. It's hard to win it, even with CEEC. But try.

Victory in 43 and mate 41

Winner - Gelu, Poland

2013-06-22

Part 4 - Round 12

Sadness. Carlsen - Ivanchuk: 0-1

You need to fix it. :)

In Goldchess: mate in 36.

Goldchess supports Carlsen, but here we have 2 rounds until the end, and... Kramnik is first with a half-point advantage. What's going to happen?
