Hi, this is an old thread, but anyway...

I'm too a poor player (about 1600 ELO) to play for money.

But I like the chess game and I think it might be interesting if good players (both humans and computers) could have a plateform to play for bitcoins.

Some pretty good games could emerge from a purly electronic bitcoin chess tournament.

It could also be a great intencive for programmers to developp a good chess programm.

I know there is already a famous game tournament plateform (ICS I think).  It should be easily modified to male players play for bitcoins.

This is a great idea, I love playing chess.

The problem with playing for Bitcoins (or any kind of money) is cheating. If you play with someone, you can be running a Chessmaster copy in the background and just make the moves that the computer does (by using your opponent's moves against your PC). This way your opponent would always lose, unless he is Kasparov - or unless you are playing blitz chess where there is no time to use the Chessmaster. Correct me if I am wrong.

Just bet very small amounts if you are afraid to lose.  You may lose some bitcoins, but it might worth the chess lesson.

There is no cheating as long as you don't pretend you are a human being.  Kasparov himself is an advocate of "advanced chess", where players are free to be assisted by computers.

And even a computer-only network would be interesting (for it could give some nice chess games).  Chess programers could compete for bitcoins and it might still be fun.

But you can get as many ass beatings as you want from a computer for free. It isn't that the ass beating service isn't valuable, it's that it's already provided gratis.

Gambling is for games where variance can hide the skill like poker and backgammon.

Well I have to agree.  It wouldn't be much interesting for human only players.  But it could be a nice way for chess programmers to compete with one another.

Well, I had been playing in Dragon's Tale and it is quite fun. Good luck making a winning bot. Wink

There are some strategy games and some great game such as the monkey cage.
