Личесс

The chess game

The page with the chess game itself is divided
similarly:

  1. the chessboard with the game
  2. the block with game info (game
    clock, captured pieces, chat, scoresheet etc.)
  3. buttons with in-game commands
    • Resign – by clicking this button
      you resign your game
    • Draw – with this button you can
      offer your opponent a draw, accept a draw offer from your
      opponent or claim a draw (e.g. on threefold repetition
      rule)
    • Cancel – the game can be cancelled
      if both players did not make their move yet
    • Undo – here you can ask your
      opponent to take back your move
    • More time – adds 10 seconds to
      your opponent’s clock
    • Hint – when playing against
      computer, you can ask for a hint
  4. announcement area (or the event
    ticker) – above the buttons with in-game commands, various
    information is displayed to the user (e.g. draw offer etc.).

All important functions are free and do not require
registration. Registration is free and brings advantages such
as the possibility to earn rating points, to save the games in
user’s profile or advanced appearance settings.

Gameplay

Lichess time controls are based on estimated game duration = (clock initial time in seconds) + 40 × (clock increment).For instance, the estimated duration of a 5+3 game is 5 × 60 + 40 × 3 = 420 seconds.

  • ≤ 29s = UltraBullet
  • ≤ 179s = Bullet
  • ≤ 479s = Blitz
  • ≤ 1499s = Rapid
  • ≥ 1500s = Classical

Lichess supports standard chess and 8 chess variants.

The centipawn is the unit of measure used in chess as representation of the advantage. A centipawn is equal to 1/100th of a pawn. Therefore 100 centipawns = 1 pawn. These values play no formal role in the game but are useful to players, and essential in computer chess, for evaluating positions.The top computer move will lose zero centipawns, but lesser moves will result in a deterioration of the position, measured in centipawns.This value can be used as an indicator of the quality of play. The fewer centipawns one loses per move, the stronger the play.The computer analysis on Lichess is powered by Stockfish.

In the event of one player running out of time, that player will usually lose the game. However, the game is drawn if the position is such that the opponent cannot checkmate the player’s king by any possible series of legal moves (FIDE handbook §6.9).In rare cases this can be difficult to decide automatically (forced lines, fortresses). By default we always side with the player who did not run out of time.Note that it can be possible to mate with a single knight or bishop if the opponent has a piece that could block the king.

This is a legal move known as «en passant». The Wikipedia article gives a good introduction.It is described in section 3.7 (d) of the FIDE handbook §3.7:»A pawn occupying a square on the same rank as and on an adjacent file to an opponent’s pawn which has just advanced two squares in one move from its original square may capture this opponent’s pawn as though the latter had been moved only one square. This capture is only legal on the move following this advance and is called an ‘en passant’ capture.»See the on this move for some practice with it.

Watch International Master Eric Rosen checkmate en passant.

If a position occurs three times, players can claim a draw by threefold repetition. Lichess implements the official FIDE rules, as described in Article 9.2 (d) of the FIDE handbook §9.2.

We repeated a position three times. Why was the game not drawn?

Repetition needs to be claimed by one of the players. You can do so by pressing the button that is shown, or by offering a draw before your final repeating move, it won’t matter if your opponent rejects the draw offer, the threefold repetition draw will be claimed anyway. You can also configure Lichess to automatically claim repetitions for you. Additionally, fivefold repetition always immediately ends the game.

Accounts

Lichess recognises all FIDE titles gained from OTB (over the board) play, as well as many national master titles. Here is a list of FIDE titles:

  • Grandmaster (GM)
  • International Master (IM)
  • FIDE Master (FM)
  • Candidate Master (CM)
  • Woman Grandmaster (WGM)
  • Woman International Master (WIM)
  • Woman FIDE Master (WFM)
  • Woman Candidate Master (WCM)

If you have an OTB title, you can apply to have this displayed on your account by completing the verification form, including a clear image of an identifying document/card and a selfie of you holding the document/card.Verifying as a titled player on Lichess gives access to play in the Titled Arena events.Finally there is an honorary title.

No.

This honorific title is unofficial and only exists on Lichess.We rarely award it to highly notable players who are good citizens of Lichess, at our discretion. You don’t get the LM title, the LM title gets to you. If you qualify, you will get a message from us regarding it and the choice to accept or decline.Do not ask for the LM title.

In general, usernames should not be: offensive, impersonating someone else, or advertising. You can read more about the guidelines.

No, usernames cannot be changed for technical and practical reasons. Usernames are materialized in too many places: databases, exports, logs, and people’s minds. You can adjust the capitalization once.

The way of Berserk

That trophy is unique in the history of Lichess, nobody other than hiimgosu will ever have it.

To get it, hiimgosu challenged himself to berserk and win all games of an hourly Bullet tournament.

The Golden Zee

That trophy is unique in the history of Lichess, nobody other than ZugAddict will ever have it.

ZugAddict was streaming and for the last 2 hours he had been trying to defeat A.I. level 8 in a 1+0 game, without success. Thibault told him that if he successfully did it on stream, he’d get a unique trophy. One hour later, he smashed Stockfish, and the promise was honoured.

Играть в шахматы с компьютером на весь экран

Хотелось бы дать несколько советов по поводу того, как играть в шахматы с компьютером на весь экран. Данные рекомендации особенно пригодятся новичкам, которые только осваивают эту древнюю игру. Но если вы уже серьезно занимались, но не пробовали своих сил в борьбе с машиной, эта заметка также будет вам полезна.

Советы по игре в шахматы с компьютером

  • компьютер часто играет по шаблону, поэтому сразу постарайтесь запомнить, какие ошибки он допускает. В последующих партиях вы наверняка сможете прийти к той же позиции и легко его обыграть.
  • обязательно анализируйте сыгранные партии, так как это поможет вам повысить уровень своего мастерства. Если у вас появятся вопросы по какой-то позиции, то сделайте скрин экрана и ссылку на изображение скиньте в чат (чуть выше этой статьи), мастер по шахматам обязательно вам всё объяснит.
  • силу игры компьютерной программы можно устанавливать вручную, так что после первых партий вы без проблем сможете оценить свои навыки и в дальнейшем соперничать с равным себе оппонентом. Так ведь гораздо интереснее, чем если бы играли гораздо сильнее или слабее, чем ваш противник.
  • не расстраивайтесь после поражений, так как каждый человек ошибается. Опытные шахматисты гораздо легче переносят неудачи, так как понимают, что в этой игре обязательно определяется победитель и проигравший. Рассматривайте их как повод подтянуть свои знания, например, посмотрев видеоуроки по дебютам и шахматным ловушкам, которые в большом количестве собраны на нашем портале.
  • старайтесь играть с компьютером только в свободное время, чтобы шахматы не мешали вашей работе и другой деятельности. К тому же, эта такая игра, для победы в которой нужна особая концентрация.

То, как технически реализована игра, во многом зависит от сайта. Есть площадки, на которых виртуальная доска небольшого размера — и это удобно далеко не всем пользователям. Но есть такие ресурсы, где вы можете включить шахматы на весь экран и играть с компьютером максимально удобно.

Когда экран при игре в шахматы развернут, вы лучше охватываете происходящее, не отвлекаетесь на другие изображения или текст на мониторе. Благодаря этому концентрация на процессе гораздо эффективнее. Особенно это касается тех людей, которые имеют некоторые проблемы со зрением

Для них возможность играть в шахматы с компьютером на весь экран — это очень важно

Почему стоит играть в шахматы регулярно?

Играть в шахматы с компьютером — это не совсем возможность как-то убить время, потратить его на что-то интересное. Дело в том, что такая игра (даже в виртуальном формате) приносит очень много пользы игрокам, например:

  • Учит логическому мышлению. Хороший шахматист продумывает свои шаги надолго вперед. Это означает, что он не только держит в голове текущую ситуацию, но и выстраивает несколько вариантов будущего. Для этого нужно уметь концентрироваться, не отвлекаться на посторонние вещи.
  • Повышает уровень внимания. Если вы решили играть в шахматы с компьютером (бесплатно и без регистрации), то знайте, что против вас выступает хладнокровный соперник. Компьютер не отвлекается, не расстраивается — у него нет совершенно никаких эмоций. Это говорит о том, что вам тоже нужно держать себя в руках и избегать лишних эмоциональных всплесков, а также не обращать внимания на все, что происходит вокруг. Такая ситуация и тренирует столь необходимую концентрацию.
  • Учит настойчивости, последовательности. Если вы садитесь в шахматы играть с компьютером, то заранее готовитесь к тому, что если и проиграете, то «бездушной» машине. Ваше самолюбие вряд ли будет задето, как в случае с человеком. Вы видите цель и идете к ней, не отвлекаясь на свои внутренние переживания, ожидания, обиды и другие проявления. В результате вы учитесь работать над конкретной задачей, отбрасывая все лишнее. Эту стратегию затем можно использовать в жизни и добиваться больших успехов в разных сферах жизни.

Интересно то, что играть в шахматы с компьютером можно начинать в любом возрасте. Если вам 30, 40 и даже 50, но вы никогда не увлекались таким делом, самое время начать. Пластичность мозга разрабатывается постепенно, поэтому при должном усердии в любом возрасте можно выйти на очень высокий уровень и выигрывать даже у машины, которая не подвержена человеческим слабостям.
