One of the most well known and respected professional chess coaches in the world, as well as one of the first online chess tutors in the U.S., will be joining the Chess.com Team, contributing content regularly to our website starting this July. 

National Master Dan Heisman will host his first Chess.com/TV Show on July 18th, "pinch hitting" on Your Games Analyzed. Heisman will begin hosting his own regular show "Q & A with Coach Heisman" on Friday, August 3rd. Dan will also be writing articles on a bi-weekly basis for Chess.com starting in August. 

The format of his TV show will be that of an "open forum." Dan will field questions from Chess.com Members -- ranging from what a 1200 player needs to know about openings to what really happened in the Kasparov vs Deep Blue match -- Coach Heisman answers all!

NM Heisman's full chess resume can be found here, but he is perhaps best known for providing private coaching to famous radio personality Howard Stern, as well as being a winner of multiple Chess Journalist of America awards (and the only person every to win three awards for different works in the same year). Heisman is the author of 11 instructional chess books and has recorded over 150 instructional video lectures in his career!

    This site continues to be a great investment.  So many great players, teaching so many things about the game that most people will not stumble on by themselves.  Combined with the tactics training and mentor.  Amazing vids.  The Big Show.  Keep all the fantastic stuff coming.  And Danny, I look forward to hopefully playing you again on The Big Show.  It was very entertaining and it really had my heart pumping to play such a good player and teacher.
