It's great, JMHO. One can quickly start playing. And when I noticed many messages and comments after weeks, I was positively surprised.

 

What eludes me is that there are pairings of good players vs beginners. The good players won't advance by beating 1001 weak players, will they?

lastthirsk, Chess.com bans players for engine use all the time. If those sites are  so much better, why are you here trolling are forms? Go to one of those sites and be a moron.
