The One Thing I Bring To Every OTB Tournament

Congratulations to GM Andrew Tang for winning the Titled Arena February '24 with GMs Oleksandr Bortnyk and Daniel Naroditsky in close second and third places!

Join us in 6 hours for our 1+0 Bullet Warm-up Arena and get the chance to play against some of the titled players before the Titled Arena!

We have continued to make lots of changes to our broadcasts, including support for team events, tournament sections and the integration of a FIDE player database to automatically add the correct player names, ratings & titles. See all of it in action in the final round of the Mitropa Cup!

GM Felix Blohberger provides a retrospective of the World Rapid & Blitz Championships 2023 and annotated some of his favourite games for us!

"The blunders are all there on the board, waiting to be made." — Savielly Tartakower, founder of the hypermodern school and inventor of the now widespread Catalan Opening, was born on this day in 1887.

Did you know that you can remove all visible ratings from Lichess? Games can still be rated, and ratings are used for all the same purposes, but you will never see them.

Congratulations Koosha Jaferian Fan Club for winning the Streamers Battle February '24 and the first prize of $500! Congrats also to IM Manitodeplomo Fan Club for 2nd place ($300), PAPASIonates (3rd, $150) and IM YOSEPH AND FRIENDS (4th, $100). Thanks to all 2797 registered players for participating!
