ketchuplover: Site visits? I looked at their chart, but I cannot figure out what the columns mean. They do not have a legend explaining the column headers, and I'm not very good with abbreviations when I do not know the subject very well.
ketchuplover: I am doubting their accuracy. Perhaps they've never heard of BrainKing? Or maybe they personally dislike this site? Or does 109,000 members mean nothing? What criteria do they use for ranking a site for be good for Chess?
Looking for new members for my fellowship, Brian's 1971 Pub. Starting February 14th, we have 10 chess tournaments beginning. That is chess and 9 chess variants. It is our biggest offering of games ever at the pub. So please send a request for membership if you are not already a member so you can play in these tournaments.
Chaosu: Stalemate is where the side to move (black here) can make no legal moves and the game is a draw. The king can not move to the g file because all squares are covered by the queen. He can't move to H5 because it is covered by the queen and knight. He cant go to H3 because it is attacked by the bishop. So the king is not in check (so it is not check mate) but he has no legal moves so it is stalemate.
ketchuplover: I have read some of the rules and prize categories. I like how they are trying to prevent draws by not allowing them except by asking the tournament director. This is almost identical to my solution, though they have a 30 move rule for some reason. I wish them well with this tournament. I wonder how many people will enter and how many of the top rated tournament champions of the world will enter?
