Introducing Sub-Saturdays Chess On Twitch

The chess world is growing fast on Twitch, and we need more events to show our appreciation!

Starting Saturday, January 26, and continuing every Saturday at 12 p.m. (noon) Pacific, the Twitch channel with the largest following of chess enthusiasts will be taken over by a different chess streamer or top grandmaster.

For three hours, each special guest chess celebrity will take over with games and instructional analysis just for our subscribers! As a subscriber, you can play a master, and the master will provide brief analysis of the game with the key takeaways for learning.

Then on to the next game! Sub-Saturdays will see the guest host play subscribers in 5|0 blitz for the right balance of getting enough games against the excited viewers, but also offering a little more time than a normal bullet game often seen on streams. Subscribers should come planning to play their absolute best chess against this celebrity, and hopefully learn as much as they can from the game.

Kicking things off will be none other than two of the most well-known faces to the chess streaming community: Grandmaster Aman Hambleton debuts this event on Saturday, January 26, with IM Danny Rensch providing the sequel on Saturday, February 2.

Then, it's back-to-back super-grandmasters taking over the chess channel: Maxime-Vachier-Lagrave and Hikaru Nakamura have confirmed they plan to keep the party going on February 9 and 16, respectively.

The full schedule (as of now, pending any changes) is below. Fans should look for announcements regarding who steps in next on the Calendar.

January 26 GM Aman Hambleton
February 2 IM Danny Rensch
February 9 GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave
February 16 GM Hikaru Nakamura

GM Hambleton hopes to see you on January 26 at 12 p.m. Pacific!
