Brief summary of some of the Superchess activities up to June 2005
(more detailed reports in Dutch only)

IM Jop Delemarre, the winner of the 2nd Dutch Open Championship Superchess at the Corus Chess Tournament 2005, gave in Leiden (March 18th) a clock simultaneous display Superchess, the first ever. Delemarre got 1 hour clock time versus 30 minutes for his opponents. All participants were satisfied with this type of play, including Delemarre himself, despite the fact that he scored only 56%. See the report in Dutch: Clock Simultaneous display.

A few chess clubs (in Zoetermeer, Amstelveen and Leiderdorp) organised Superchess tournaments to give their members the opportunity to get acquainted with Superchess. Like before at various other tournaments, it turned out that especially children learn this new game very quickly and very much enjoy playing Superchess. See the reports in Dutch: Zoetermeer, Amstelveen, and Leiderdorp.

Superchess was present at the Dutch Championship Chess for the Youth at Schagen (≤ 20 y.) and Rijswijk (≤ 12 y.), May 2005, and at the match Van Wely - Stellwagen at Maastricht (10-13 May) where both players were allowed to use a computer and where random chess was played in two of the four games. See the report in Dutch: Superchess at NK's Youth and Chess Event Van Wely-Stellwagen.

The Superchess coordinator also visited the 2nd Dutch Open Championship Fischer Random Chess (FRC)/Chess960 in Amsterdam, May 28th, 2005, organised by the chess club Fischer Z. As is well-known, in FRC there exist 960 different starting positions so that opening theory will not play any significant role in practice. Superchess has the same advantage, so FRC-players need to take only one step further in order to become enthusiastic Superchess players. See the report in Dutch: DOC Fischer Random Chess.
