Games in standard export PGN format are accepted (for required standard tags/format see example below). The Year information is necessary, while Month and Day information is desirable. For chess games played after 1997, it is necessary to include Rating (at least for one player) and Site/Event information. For rating, either international, or national or email rating is allowed. To keep the high quality of chess games, ChessLab has a policy that for chess games played after 1997 the rating of at least one player's should be equal to or above 2050. For the Site information, please indicate the location (City or town and the country) where the game was played. Or, if the game was played by email or over the Internet, please indicate the name of organisation that sponsored the event.
