Two main points of this law:
1) gambling business - activities related to the organization, conduct and provision of access to gambling in casinos, slot machines, computer simulators, in bookmakers, in interactive institutions, in an electronic (virtual) casino, regardless of the location of the server;
2) a game of chance - any game, a prerequisite for participation in which is the payment of money by the player, including through the electronic payment system, which allows the participant how to get a win (prize) in any form, and not to receive it depending on RANDOMS.
As you can see, the main thing in the definition of gambling is that the gain in it depends on the chance. In other words he is not depends on the intelligence and abilities of the player.
At the same time, everyone knows that chess is a sport and a deterministic logic game with complete information.
Consider the definition of "logical game with complete information":
A game with complete information is a term of game theory, denoting a logical game in which for opponents there is no element of uncertainty.
A game is a game with complete information if:
1. Players influence the game situation with discrete actions - moves, the order of moves is determined by the rules and does not depend on such parameters as the speed of the players' reaction (that is, the next move is made by the one who has to do it by the rules, and not the one who first guessed or managed to do it);
2. At any time of the game, all players have complete information about the state of the game, that is, the position and all possible moves of any of the players.
If, besides, in no aspect of the game (rules, possibility or sequence of moves, determining the end of the game or the result) DOES NOT PARTICIPATE AN ELEMENT OF RANDOMNESS, such a game will also be deterministic.
As we see from these two definitions, chess is not only not a gamble, but also its complete antithesis. So, they do not fall under the restriction of the law of the President of Ukraine No. 1334-VI "On the prohibition of gambling business."
