Chess Pieces

“Of chess, it has been said that life is not long enough for it,
but that is the fault of life, not chess.” – William Napier.

About Me:

I am a chess player ... i am a Chess lover. I am eager to learn all styles of Chess games. I love to play 10 to 15 minutes chess games. I am a sports teacher by profession. Foot ball is my favorite game. I am also a web developer.

My Favorite YouTube Channel: Zibbit's Chess Channel
I highly recommend this channel because he is always ready to reply to your queries. He has great Chess experience. His videos are for all level of chess player (Beginners + Intermediate + Advance).
