Hello guys...had no idea there was an official chess thread here....


Would love to play against some nairalanders, and i'm thinking we should organize a tournament online.

Who's up for it?

There is an upcoming chess tournament in November tagged 1st Nigerian MindGames Festival 2017 taking place at the Kakanfo Inn & Conference Center in Ibadan. If you fancy your chances against the best players, come along. Visit www.mindgamesincorporated.com for details.

In other news...

Google's self-learning AI AlphaZero has ended Stockfish's career. 'He' was said to have learned chess in four hours(!), and then outplayed Stockfish with a surprisingly human style, even repeating a position twice and then playing another move to continue the game instead of drawing! Could 'he' be the strongest chess 'player' ever? Robots are taking over the world oh.

Congrats to GM Sam Shankland for winning the 2018 US chess championships!! I've been an avid fan of his for years in his chess.com IM days, together with Daniel Rensch. Wonderful news.

8 gamee,8 draws. Looks like rapids will be the decider.
Re: Nairaland Official Chess Thread! by Loluores: 1:25am On Nov 25, 2018
I don't even care again, who wins or not. I'm just bored sick. Totally unexciting chess from these guys. Classical time controls don't seem worth it anymore.
