However, we announce a new section that we will release soon:

Enter our chess contest to win an individual class with Gran Master Ángel Arribas!

Yes, you got it right. From Yottachess we raffle a class with Grandmaster Angel Arribas. But how can you get it? We explain it to you below.

From March 1st we will be uploading to our social networks (Twitter, Instagram y Facebook) a daily chess problem. As the aim of our contest is not to reward the best players, but those who try hardest, for every attempt at solving it will count towards the class draw, regardless of whether it is correct. Obviously, the more entries you have, the more likely you are to win. However, a number of conditions must be met:

  • 1. Follow Yottachess and Ángel Arribas in the social network where you participate.
  • 2. Click like in the publication.
  • 3. Reach 20 points.

How do the points work?

To improve our chess it is very important to be constant. With this, we want to give more possibilities to people who make an effort and try hard to solve the problems. For this we have created a scoring system that consists of the following:

  • 1. A point for each comment proposing a solution to the problem.
  • 2. Bonus point for mentioning a friend in the riddle comments.
  • 3. Bonus point for sharing the problem.
  • Taking into account that each month has approximately 30 days, it is possible to reach 90 points, so reaching 20 points is not difficult. In addition, anyone who joins the contest late will be able to rejoin without any problem.

    So, how many points can I get?

    As soon as a person obtains 20 points, he/she will have one participation. But, for every 3 points he/she gets from 20, he/she will get another one. In other words, the relationship will be as follows:

    • 20 points → 1 participation
    • 23 points → 2 participations
    • 26 points → 3 participations
    • 29 points → 4 participations
    • 32 points → 5 participations
    • 35 points → 6 participations
    • 38 points → 7 participations
    • 41 points → 8 participations
    • 44 points → 9 participations
    • 47 points → 10 participations
    • 50 points → 11 participations
    • 53 points → 12 participations
    • 56 points → 13 participations
    • 59 points → 14 participations
    • 62 points → 15 participations
    • 65 points → 16 participations
    • 68 points → 17 participations
    • 71 points → 18 participations
    • 74 points → 19 participations
    • 77 points → 20 participations
    • 80 points → 21 participations
    • 83 points → 22 participations
    • 86 points → 23 participations

    So, remember. The more you participate, the more chances you have to win!
