What are thematic tournaments?

Thematic tournaments require all games to start from a pre-defined starting position (such as three moves into a King's Gambit line, for example).

This allows players to play similar games and test each other in certain openings. Thematic tournaments are indicated with a special icon on certain pages; on the Tournament page, a graphic shows the starting position of the games.
