About

Intellias organizes its eighth chess tournament among IT specialists. This time the Intelligent Chess Challenge will be held online and nationwide. While previously the tournament included participants from Lviv and Kyiv only, this year we invite IT specialists from all over Ukraine: developers, QA engineers, project managers, DevOps, business analysts and others. 

The traditional date of the tournament has also been changed. Instead of a winter tournament, this year the competition will take place on March 13. The format of the even is speed chess: every participant will have 10 minutes for a chess game plus 2 seconds per move. Overall, participants will play 11 rounds in accordance with the Swiss system. The tournament will be held on a chess.com platform, which has sufficient anti-cheating algorithms. 

Intellias will award tournament finalists, the best chess players in the chosen technical categories, and the best female chess player.
