An introduction to Playchess version 5 – Part one

What’s a Premium account and what is so special about it? Over the years, Playchess has incorporated new technologies to provide users with a cutting-edge, online experience. We are talking about simuls, audio and video lectures, audio and video commentary of live games and others, and TV Chessbase to name but a few. All these are available at no extra cost to Premium subscribers.

The new software also brings a much needed update of the previous free version of Playchess, and even if you aren’t interested in the multimedia content, you will certainly enjoy the facelift inside, the high-quality 3D sets (if your hardware can handle it), the ability to view multiple boards at the same time when following live tournament broadcasts, the Best Game button, to instantly start watching the highest rated game being played at that moment on the server, and many other features.

Still, enough talking about what is inside the candy store, let me show you how to get in.

The most popular chess server in the world. More than 5000 players online every night. 200,000 games per day. Top grandmasters playing, free chess training, live events with audio commentary, free chess tournaments with prizes every day, simultaneous exhibitions, special beginners and computer chess rooms.
