The Turkish chess-federation was a decade ago very small but last years they made fantastic progress which many other federations can only dream of. In 2006 suddenly 1,1 million euro was injected in Turkish chess and this didn't stop. A massive recruiting campaign started which at beginning of 2014 already gathered more than 350.000 members.

Soon enough the young turkish chess player started to achieve norms. Burak Firat (born 1993) was one of them, and he has now the Grandmaster title and will be an interesting contender in Stockholm Chess Challenge April 30–May 5.

Gemensamt för många spel är också att det krävs att man besitter en viss skicklighet och intelligens för att bli framgångsrik och just den kategorin av spel är något som vi tänkte titta lite närmare på här och nu. Dessutom tänkte vi kika på vilka av dessa spel som det går att tävla i.

Bevara och utveckla

Det finns flera fördelar med att man i dag kan spela just klassiska bord- och brädspel på nätet. Dels är det tillgängligare och enklare, men det hjälper också till att utveckla och bevara spelen. Man experimenterar fortfarande med AI som kan spela allt från schack till blackjack, och det hjälper till att hålla oss mänskliga spelare på tå, samt bidrar till att spelen utvecklas till det bättre. The development means that more people get up to the eyes of games like chess and gambling of different kinds,,sv,which also goes back for hundreds of years in time - but still today,,sv,and much thanks to just the internet,,sv,Still popular and popular games,,sv, vilka också går tillbaka flera hundra år i tiden – men som än i dag, och mycket tack vare just internet, fortfarande är populära och omtyckta spel.
