GM Ashley kicks off the 1st Generation Tourney!

Friends in the world of chess:

I am proud to announce that the
Generation Chess International Tournament will begin Wednesday, April 23rd and run through Friday, May 2nd. It is the only tournament in the world where a NO DRAW OFFER rule is in effect before move 50. This will promote real fighting chess instead of those tepid 10 move draws that are so typical at other tournaments. To find out more, please visit the official website of the event at The Internet Chess Club will be covering all the action live at We appreciate any feedback you have about this important experiment.

Thank you.

GM Maurice Ashley
