Fantasy Chess 101: Here's what happens in a fantasy chess team.

  1. First you need to register. Once you register you become an owner and can submit a roster.

  2. You prepare for your team by scouting players.

    Before choosing your fantasy team, you need to research all the available players so you can pre-rank them according to your personal preference. Understanding your league’s scoring system and roster setup is critical to creating a bulletproof draft strategy.

  3. You build your fantasy team via the draft.

    The draft is the most fun and exciting day of the fantasy season. During the draft, each fantasy owner selects a chess player at a time until the rosters are complete. Fantasy chess team drafts can take place from open section advance entry list.

  4. Your team competes against another teams

    During the tournament, the fantasy teams face each other. The players' wins, losses and draws are converted into fantasy points, and the fantasy team that scores the most points wins the tournament. The goal is to win as many tournaments as possible.
