i love money
heh people make big money at the chess booths at fairs and other events; the ren-fest near us usually has one and that runs all summer long, guy probably makes over a grand a day. Think he was a low 2k (right at 2k even?) rated player and charged $10 or something for a game, paid 20 if he lost, and maybe kids were able to have one game free? Anyway the seats (about 10 boards, from memory) were usually at least 1/2 full and over a 10 hour or so day.. it looked profitable. Takes some skill; the guy was good enough to replay the game with you for a quick analysis / commentary if you wanted.
ePlease be relevant, helpful & nice!
I think this Idea should be forwarded for the chess.com admins how come such athing is not available . (...)
INdeed. A very unrealistic idea.
The best and only place to play online chess for money is www.velocitychess.com
VelocityChess is a new site with cool features and the anti-cheating security there is world class. If your opponent is caught cheating, you are fully refunded.
It would be impossible to prevent from someone sneaking in computer moves on critical positions.
Problem with chess online specially for money is that it is terribly easy to cheat. Simply get the latest version of chessmaster or that microsoft chess game and install it on your pc. than start a game for money with a real player and a game with the ai on your pc. what ever move the real player will make against you, you will make against the A.I. and what ever move the A.I. will make against you, you will make against the real player. This is why chess online for money will never be real. (other than some scaming sites...)
i noticed chessfordollars.com is bringing up 4-player chess. when they add money to it you're probably going to have the only chess game on the planet that is cheat-proof. I think that's because there are no chess engines that play 4-player and there are no published games. everyone will be playing with only their brains. what a thought!
Cheat-proof? Well, let's look at it this way: say that you and two buddies play against a fourth, unsuspecting, player…
you're right. I didn't think of that.
I just loaded https://playtou.com/ wth some tournaments offer only $0.20 ?! i will never look back to this site.
I am happy to introduce a new & unique chess playing experience!
You can challenge and try your skills against top GMs, play blitz tournaments and win cash prizes, watch top live games and enjoy gentleman's rules :)
Long rules are long mr Kramnik.
Wouldn't you think it would be filled with really nicely tuned chess-engines?
What? You mean you thought of it too? Ok keep it a secret though... I need to find those sites where a guy with an engine can win the big money before word gets out that there are programs that play chess well.
My friend got one on his phone, but I was smart and invested $60 in Rybka. If I can't win at least that much then I won't even break even. (By the way I tested it and Rybka is better than the phone application so I should do really well).
Let's exchange the secret handshake and at 2100 hours 6th street, downtown we will meet Agent Ivanov for further instructions. Let's keep it a secret between ourselves. This message will self destruct in 1 minute's time.
You can play chess online for money almost everywhere (even at chess.com). Every site or opponent would be quite glad to take some away from you.
honestly i have no idea. i also wonder how to earn a title on chess,com (CM GM etc)
Your favorite GM?
