No matter how much you study chess, you wil not reach your goals of improvement unless you get out and play. The following groups fill this need, and two of them provide proven and free coaching resources from myself and NM Dan Heisman, one of America's top chess teachers and a noted author as well! I launched my free video lessons course on youTube nearly three years ago teaching you how to maximize your time by studying what you need to know most and how to duplicate my methods for your own rapid gains. I have countless testimonies from players who  immediately noted improvements in their game by following my suggestions. My full video playlist on YouTube has a wide variety of playlist topics which teach you to think as I do. All you have to do is watch and enjoy!


The group sizes are large, and for a reason! Quality Chess for you!
