Arkady Dvorkovich
Arkady Dvorkovich
FIDE President
"This is the future. First of all, for live streaming and, in part, to fight cheating; what concerns illegal moves, i.e. everything related to the touch-move rule or the correct setting of pieces".
Damir Talapker
Damir Talapker
Executive director of the Kyrgyz Chess Union
"We have implemented idChess into the Federation tournaments and see great benefits. Firstly, we conduct tournament broadcasts for people with visual impairments, they play on boards specially adapted for the visually impaired. Thus, we solve the issues of equality at the chessboard through technological solutions".
Malith Akalanka

Chess Federation of Sri Lanka, Vice-President, International Arbiter
"idChess brought a new experience for the Sri Lankan chess community and they loved it. idChess gives chess much-needed features to broadcast tournaments, save games, and makes it as simple and user-friendly as possible. Broadcast management takes very little time, it is very easy and convenient to use"
Victor Bologan
Victor Bologan
Grandmaster, FIDE Executive Director
"It is very important and necessary to broadcast chess games, because both tournaments and exhibitions can be of different levels: sometimes you get a lot of beautiful combinations, and then you can analyze or publish them. Previously, chess players had some kind of exceptional memory, they remembered all their games and exhibitions, but I'm not like that, so this technology helps me a lot. It is especially useful for children: when the halls are large, parents are never allowed in and here everything is visible on the screen. I think this technology has a great future.".

Grandmaster, FIDE arbiter, Senior Coach of the youth team of the Republic of Kazakhstan
"idChess is a necessary and convenient product for both players and fans, especially for parents. You can watch games from a distance, and not be in the hall where the game is being played. Also, idChess can help arbiters to make decisions by recording video simultaneously with recognition, so it's convenient and easy to use".
Dastan Kapaev
Dastan Kapaev
State Chess Coach of the Ministry of Culture and Sports of the Republic of Kazakhstan
"idChess is a very promising program that is useful to us. I, as a state coach, on behalf of all Kazakhstani chess players, thank the company for entering the market. Now we can digitize not only large famous tournaments, but also small ones, for example, in private schools and universities. We have only 20 regions, and I would like everyone to cover their championships in the future. I see great opportunities and I am personally very glad".
Zhohangir Kamalov

International arbiter, chief arbiter of Asian Schools Chess Championship 2023
“The system provided to us by the idChess team was installed at our tournament in several categories: under the age of 7, 9 and 11. It performed well: when there were many difficulties, especially in the category under the age of 7, we watched the video, if everything was confirmed, the game was continued, if not — we issued a warning. The idChess system provided precious assistance in resolving contentious issues, the system saved arbiters in many situations. I think we will use it in the future, as it is really very useful"

National arbiter, Tajikistan
“VAR idChess makes the work of chess arbiters easier: recording games disciplines children during the game, children do not break the rules when they see that the camera is installed and recording is in progress. Also, broadcasting of games helps coaches to track the game of their students in real time, which is very convenient”
Ainur Isayeva
Arbiter, Turkmenistan
“I'm so delighted! Now that I have seen how it works in action, I want us to use these technologies in our tournaments too!”
Fatih Abdukhalikov
Fatih Abdukhalikov
National arbiter, Uzbekistan
“This is very convenient, especially at children's tournaments: the human factor is minimized, you can immediately determine if someone is cheating. It is easier to resolve a dispute, children are less likely to disturb arbiters, therefore, they do not interrupt an opponent's process of thinking. In general, children behave differently if games are broadcast and VAR is working: they play more seriously and more honestly, a pure game of chess is developed”
Najmiddin Umarov
Najmiddin Umarov
FIDE national arbiter, Uzbekistan
“I am glad that in Uzbekistan we started using the idChess program, with the help of VAR we examined 25 cases of violations in only one round in the categories of boys under the age of 7 and 9! This facilitates the decision-making process, especially in blitz games”
Sergey Moiseev
Sergey Moiseev

"idChess is incredibly in demand among tournament organizers, coaches, and parents. This technology easily and quickly allows you to collect an array of data on chess games, which helps in learning. idChess gives emotions to parents who can watch their children play in real time. That is great!"
Alexander Zakharov
Alexander Zakharov
Director of the Etude Chess School, Olympic champion
"With simple actions, you get a record of your game – this is what modern chess lacked so much and what is so necessary for teaching the game to children, parents, coaches".
Matvey Shcherbin
Matvey Shcherbin
Founder of the ShakMatOff chess school
"Parents can watch their children play in tournaments; players can review and analyze their games. Everything is so easy and understandable. I recommend using idChess to anyone who wants to improve in chess".
Alexey Manakov
Alexey Manakov
Head coach of the ZAO chess school
"We use idChess in our chess school not only when holding tournaments to broadcast games but at every lesson too. Using idChess, I record games on one or two boards and then we together with children analyze their games, it's great learning material!"
