Hello chess fans!

As many of you know, we've been having issues with our Titled Tuesday tournaments in recent months. We just had too many people wanting to play and watch! Our developer team has been working hard to get us up and running again and we are now ready for a live test. 

All titled players are invited to join us on April 3 at 1 p.m. Pacific (9 p.m. London time) for a Titled Tuesday Crash party! We've got $1,000 in prizes to give out to those who help us test our new code. If all goes well, our next Titled Tuesday event will be our biggest one yet with $5,000 in prizes!

All non-titled players can also help us out by watching the pros play. Everyone is a part of the solution!

Before we get to that, we need to make sure Chess.com doesn't come crashing down again! And Danny needs YOUR help!

Here is the format for the crash event on April 3:

  • 10-round Swiss with a time control of three minutes plus two seconds increment.
  • The tournament begins at 1 p.m. Pacific time and will be broadcast on Chess.com/TV and Twitch.tv/chess.
  • IM Daniel Rensch is hosting for your viewing pleasure!

The prize pool is $1,000, divided as follows:

  • $500 for first
  • $250 for second
  • $125 for third
  • $75 for fourth
  • $50 for fifth

Danny has also informed us that if Chess.com crashes again, he is retiring to be a farmer in Iceland... so let's hope for his sake -- though not ours  -- that things go well!
