    #36 says Chessclub.com. Did they change the name? I thought it was the Internet Chess Club.

    this are chess websites, but what about sites for just play correspondence chess? RHP will be between the first 5... or the first 10...
    rhp has a tendency to go up...

    there is big gap between number 1 and number 2....in Alexa ratings.

    but from 2 to 14 the gap is not visible

    It is still ICC but the domain has always been chessclub.com.

    it seems chess.com is far the most visited chess website. But they don't have ladders, sieges or clubs.
    -
    but the blitz section is very nice.
    -
    nice user interface
    -
    cheating controls
    -
    and is 20 dollars more expensive than RHP
    -
    and rhp forums are more friendly .... maybe the have many blogs one for each user

    They are the most improvement oriented turn based and real time chess site on the net. I dont really like the site but their mobile phone interface is great because I'm never usually sitting down at a computer.

    If you look at the video's you will see some kind of electronic board, it looks like the clock is plugged into the board. Anyone know what that is all about?

    I think I see, it must be hooked to a comp to record the moves because I don't see score sheets.

    Is that the new norm for GM tournies now?

    it is supposed that carsen-anand (sochi 2014) played in the same board of alekhine-capablanca (Buenos Aires 1927).

    but It seem there are some wood boards with sensors to avoid the notation and clock in GM games since 10 or 5 years ago

    The ones I saw had both clocks with cables and a board with a plug in, probably a USB port.

    Hey if RHP is 22 it means that sites 1 to 21 are better than this?
