Your personal room

If you have an account on, you probably noticed the list of rooms on the right part of the screen.

Besides being able to challenge other players all around the world for a chess game in the "Main Playing Hall" you are also able to create your own personal virtual rooms, and invite whoever you want to join your events.

With your virtual room you can:

  • Create a tournament
  • Create a club match
  • Create a simul
  • Create a broadcast

All these features will be covered with more videos in the upcoming weeks, starting with a tutorial how to organise a simul in your personal room.
