Kontra Chess brings an edgier, more dynamic experience to a game that has existed for 1,500 years! It fuses the risk elements of games like Texas Hold ‘Em Poker with the fast paced action of Blitz Chess. Utilising a unique in-play betting system, players can push the Kontra! Button - forcing their opponent to accept higher stakes or concede the game. This is Chess on steroids; it turns up the pressure, creates more ways to win or lose and adds a new set of weapons to a player’s arsenal. Kontra Chess will bring the game into the e-Sport realm, as a mental martial art.
You can report abuse through the in play option (screenshot of the in play) and also through our ask a question popup or email us. Please provide the details of match and rationale on how/why you felt abuse or cheating.
Kontra Chess is aiming to be the safest place to play chess online. We have developed a first of it’s kind cheat-proof chess exam designed to screen and detect chess engine users. These ‘kontra measures’ are joined by our advanced blend of anti-cheat technologies, mandated by FIDE, a dedicated team of professional moderators and the entire community of chess players incentivised to expose cheating.
Kontra Chess is a welcoming and exciting community for those who love chess, poker, e-sports and the ability to test their skills. Kontra Chess members must be sportsmanlike throughout play, while we encourage banter, any offensive content to another player can quickly get your account closed and email banned.
Offensive content is defined as any use of vulgar/offensive language, making personal threats/attacks, spamming other players or forums, advocating illegal activities or advertising competitor websites.
Use of chess programs in ongoing live games is strictly prohibited in any form. Anyone found using chess programs will have their account closed.
