Hello there, I am looking for an expert - professional who would be able to help me out on a project. I am about to organise local, national and later international commercial chess matches and tournaments using a private hosting server. Also I have been planning to build up a community of passionate chess players who would like to take part in regular online matches and tournaments as well as different kinds of online challenges. So my question is whether there is a possibility to host chess matches and tournaments on someone's server and If so, what are the requirements, costs, terms & conditions to run it and whether there is a manual or some instructions how to set the whole thing up on the server. Furthermore I need to know if it is necessary to have my own online chess game or if a player can just play any available chess game online. This is not quite clear to me. If there is someone who would be able to help me with that I will be thankful for any kind of advice and information and of course I am ready to join any prospective project. I will probably have further important demands to ask as soon as we get to work. Are you capable to help with that please?
So the main point of my project is that I would like to organise commercial online chess matches and tournaments with private hosting in order to make $$$ (a percentage from the deposit of both players into each game or tournament played) Best Regards Mareckx
