This site has evolved into a scam.

As long as I paid a fee, it was okay. When I stopped paying for a while, some of my games were suddenly terminated without reason,like it would say "drawn by 50 game rule", even though just a few moves earlier a piece had been captured and a pawn moved. I kept asking the site administration ...Read More

Totalitarian website stealing money
Mar 02, 2015 09:35 PMRead
I have searched for correspondence chess website and in 2011 I found Gameknot. and became a paid subscriber. Gameknot, unfortunately, is imho a best-looking chess website and has same nice features as downloading pgn/fen for your active games but at the expense of being the most totalitarian sit...Read More

Good platform, wonky admin

I have been using Gameknot for several years but am becoming increasingly irritated with various malfunctions which indicate a slapdash attitude by administrators.The timer seems to have stopped working. Every time I log on it is reset to 3 days for all games.Frequently, when I log on, m...Read More

No nonsense, just chess!

I've been playing on for over a decade. After trying a few other sites, I find nothing comparable to Gameknot. I pay for a membership in case I want to captain a team or share an IP address. While coaching a HS chess team, I recommended GK to the kids, but I warned them not to play ...Read More

Never subscribe to a premium membership

At the beginning I thought gameknot was good, as I had no comparison, but now I wouldn't recommend this site to anybody. Working people are disadvantaged. If can't move on a labor day, you lose your game (timeout) if you can't move the weekend, each Saturday night GMT these players that don't mo...Read More - why the Nazis will always lose

I was a premium subscriber of for years, and for approximately the last year. I think has the best correspondence chess setup of any site I've seen, though I've only looked at a few.The tournament system and user-submitted puzzles are nice as well, though ...Read More

The greedy Gameknot-ratpack featuring Mike...
Aug 27, 2008 10:40 PMRead
I was a platin member(60 bucks a year) at Gameknot. I invited one of my working colleagues to play there chess too. As he played some moves from my computer, we both get banned from Gameknot. Whatever we mailed to Mike, the owner & webmaster of Gameknot, we did not reiceive any answer, any expla...Read More

GameKnot : Judge and jury
Aug 08, 2008 04:58 PMRead
GameKnot gives an impression of arbitrariness and suspicion. It decides for or against complaints without giving any reason to the player or even telling the player there is a problem while an'offence' is being investigated. My impression is that anyone complained of is guilty until proved innoc...Read More

Don`t play on Gameknot!

Gameknot: a nearly unbelievable ignorance and lousy customer service! But long time they could afford their lack of service as Gameknot was rated clear nr. 1 on google. But this times, they are gone, fortunately: is the new market leader. Thank you,!I have been 3 years a ...Read More

The reviewers here are missing the boat
May 08, 2008 04:43 AMRead
Bottom line: Gameknot is a SUPERB chess site.  Too many reviews on this site are referencing the free portion of Gameknot, which is a very limited slice of the site's functionality.  In order to be fair, you have to try ALL that the site has to offer!  So your one and two-star reviews are comple...Read More

My experience with gameknot
Feb 25, 2008 03:36 AMRead
I will be discussing my thoughts about gameknot. I have been a member of gameknot since 2005. however it doesn't seem to be much beneficial for those who are not paid members. When I first saw gameknot I was very much impressed with all their features and flexibility, but soon I realized that it...Read More

Money-greedy administrators
Oct 17, 2007 01:31 PMRead
While the gameplay of this site is decent(although there are many other better chess websites out there), the administrators are money-greedy and shove advertising down the throat of the users of free accounts and give everyone limited games.Because advertising on the website attempted to fa...Read More

I played quite a while on this site and it was pretty good.  As someone who has played on many chess sites, I was at first very happy with Gameknot, despite the very heavy advertising footprint.  As well, they continued to pester me with request that I start paying them money for what they calle...Read More

GameKnot mistreats Account holders
Feb 06, 2007 06:38 PMRead
GameKnot administration, in an effort to avoid people cheating, will err on the wrong side of caution.  A situation arose where a coworker and I were logging in from our work site, and GameKnot admins made the assumption that we were the same individual.  Because my coworker was slow-playing his...Read More

Gameknot-pros and cons
Sep 17, 2004 12:53 PMRead
I am not that 100% positive as dilhindustani is. Why?Well, for starters:Gameknot admins have a US-perspective on things. They want to have players from all around the world, but seem to have a problem understanding that people from all over the world come from different cultures thus als...Read More

Being a chess crazy boy, I was always looking for a reliable website where I can spend hours playing my favourite game. I tried chessclub and kasparov chess. They are good websites, no doubt. But I used to face some troubles. Like internet connectivity is not that good in India, we frequently ge...Read More
