Call to Participate in Chessable Research on Decision-Making by Rated Players

The Chessable Science Project Manager Karel van Delft is seeking participants for in-house research on decision making in chess.

How well do chess players with different ratings solve different types of tactical chess positions? And how long does it take them to do so? The Chessable science team invites chess players to take part in an online test.

The test consists of ten positions which should be solved in a maximum of five minutes each. Before the test begins, there are two sample puzzles. After solving the positions, participants may answer some questions via a link.

Chess players of all levels can participate. The only condition is to have a FIDE Elo rating.

To participate, click on to fill in a short questionnaire (Elo rating, name, etc.). After a few weeks you will get a link to the online test.

Names of participants will be kept confidential. The research results will lead to a research paper and a blog on the Chessable science pages.

Via the questionnaire participants can opt for a one-month free Chessable PRO Account. To get the Chessable PRO account, list your existing Chessable account or create a Chessable account for free at After November 21 you will see the PRO status when you open your account.
