Fair Play Decision

To curb the menace of sandbagging the rating points and to protect Fair Play, All India Chess Federation made the following decision, which will be in force with immediate effect.

“Players who finished first or second in any rating restricted tournament will not be eligible to play in any rating restricted tournament for one year from the date of such achievement”

All the Players, Organisers, Arbiters and State Associations please be guided by the above.



Single Player Registration on Pan India basis

With effect from 01 Apr 2021, there will be only single registration (AICF Registration) on pan India basis. As per the decision, the Registration Amount of Rs. 250/- will be shared equally between AICF and State Association (Rs. 125 each). Further, States are required to share Rs. 50/- from their share with the District Association of the player. So there will not be any District or State Association registration henceforth. This will ease the things for the player to avoid multiple registration at various levels and also provide insight to AICF regarding activities of District Associations for further development of game at grass root level.

Fat Fritz has been redesigned to surpass Stockfish.

Fat Fritz 2.0 sounds like an update. According to its developer Albert Silver it is by and large a new development. It is a neural network that uses the novel NNUE technology, and it is commercially available from Chessbase. Silver maintains that his creation is “arguably the strongest entity that has ever played chess”. In order to understand its significance we need to delve into the recent history of computer chess.

A few years ago, versions of the open-source programme Stockfish were competing with the commercial engines Komodo and Houdini at the top end of the performance spectrum. In late 2017 DeepMind’s AlphaZero lifted chess to another level. Enough about its technology was made public for it to be copied and developed further. LeelaZero was born, the first open source engine based on a neural network. Leela’s emergence also gave a boost to Stockfish, while their competitors fell behind. Commercial engines seemed to be obsolete.
