    Offtopic: Chess

    Are there any chess enthusiasts around?
    Was thinking if there were enough it would be fun for us to have a tournament.
    We could use chess.com, players can coordinate date and time of their matches.
    Maybe even charge an entry fee?
    Winner takes all?
    Any takers?

    definitely -
    at least one very powerful chess bot (stockfish 9) is available free online without even downloading.

    it's a big, big problem in competitive chess online.

    there is very little trustworthiness in the modern world, sadly.

    Don't go there. It's not legal in the U.S. to do this, even if you return all the prize money. You can't run a lottery across state lines.
