With a record-breaking 9036 participants in the recent winter marathon, chess players made a statement of support for endurance events. But do chess variant players feel the same way? There's only one way to find out!
We're hosting 24-hour tournaments for each chess variant, starting with Three Check on January 6. Each event will have a $100 prize pool ($50/$30/$20), generously donated by FischyVishy, aka Fischy, aka The Fish.
We strive to cover all variants within this year at a rate of one every ~6 weeks.
Glad you asked! We didn't want players to confuse these with our regular Marathon events, so we needed something new and catchy. Revolution references Earth’s revolution about its axis every day (OK, that's rotation, but hey!), as well as the revolution this author hopes to spark in the chess community’s love for chess variants!
Help me in spreading this chess variant frenzy among chess lovers!
