Types of sets used in World Championship

    Yes, but from what I understand both FIDE and the USCF allow smaller and larger pieces (within limits) as long as the piece to square size ratio is acceptable. But as DGT only manufactures eboards with 55 mm squares all the top games are effectively limited to approximately 3.75" sets.

    Hi guys,

    It seems that I will revive this thread with my post Smile

    What size are the pieces that are used with the DGT board? From what I know, the board has 55mm squares and I've read in DGT timeless pieces that they have 36mm, but there is no way that 36mm pieces look like that on a 55 mm board.

    I have the same pieces and board size at home and the pieces have a lot of space on the square, compared to the videos, on which the pieces are very "fat" and they occupy a much more space.

    I even have a printscreen from today's match Smile

    Also it's very clear in any youtube video, like this one:


    Thanks a lot Smile
