We know that many of you have never played against a GM, which is why we’re very excited to be hosting this bonus event.
Here’s how it will work:
The GM will simultaneously play and stream against up to 10-20 people.
The time format of the games will be 10 minutes with 5 seconds increment on each move.
The games will be hosted on lichess.org and in order to take part, you'll need to do the following:
- Create a nickname on Lichess which ends with _ChessMood. For example - John_ChessMood or Amelie_ChessMood. This is so that when you challenge us, we recognize that you’re a ChessMood member.
- Join the ChessMood PRO team on Lichess here: https://lichess.org/team/chessmood-pro
- Five minutes before the event is due to begin, go to the ChessMood website and join the link to our YouTube stream.
- Within the YouTube live chatbox, we’ll send a link that you can use to join the simul.
- Click on the link and send us a game challenge.
P.S Come early! While we’d love to play all of our students, it’s impossible for us to play with everyone, so challenges are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Please forgive us if you’re unable to take part but hopefully, you understand the difficulty in organizing events like these.
Hope to see you very soon. Come prepared for a great game!
