Hall of Champions

Since the founding of The Chess Variant Pages in 1995, we have hosted a number of contests in various areas of chess. While our design contests have been most popular, we have also held PBEM tournaments, solving contests, and composition contests.

This page has been compiled to honor the champions of our many events. We look forward to adding a lot of names to this list in all five areas in later years.
