How It All Started

“Back in 2007, TheChessWorld started out life as a personal blog. I shared the games I played and the openings I learned with my fellow readers. I liked what I saw and decided to give it a go. I ended up posting on a regular basis, producing higher quality content for chess players of all levels to enjoy.” – TheChessWorld CEO, Co-Founder, and Chess Player Yury Markushin.

TheChessWorld Was Born

In 2014, we launched our 21 Days to Supercharge Your Chess training course — and it was a huge success.

We received [and still receive] waves of positive feedback from players all over the globe who took the course, improved their game, and then went on to win important chess events to receive scholarships, team acceptance letters, prestigious trophies, and even FIDE titles!

It was the positive response from our students that inspired us to reshape our mission to deliver the highest quality chess training to places with no strong Grandmasters or International Masters available to share their knowledge.

TheChessWorld is now much more than just a blog

The blog itself is bursting at the seams with over 1,500 articles and tutorials covering every conceivable element of chess, written by leading FMs, IMs, and GMs. Over the past 4 years, we have filmed hundreds of hours of GM/IM level instructional videos covering Calculation, Tactics, Openings, Middlegames, Endgames, Attacking Chess, Pawn Structures, Reviews, Annotated Games and so much more! You can also download chess engines.

You can find all our video courses here.

If that’s not enough, we also have a Chess Store with over 1000+ different chess titles covering everything chess from A to Z.
We also recommend you check out our store with Chess Courses.

What Do You Need Help With?

Most new chess players come with the goal of mastering the game but also with one of few common needs or challenges. As a result, we organized the site into 5 categories to help you find content that best suits your needs.
