About this Course

Do you want to know how to start playing Chess? This course has everything you need. From the most basic rules in chess to special rules to winning chess games, this course will take you from absolute zero knowledge to a beginner-intermediate stage.

I am not a Chess Master but I am super excited to share my knowledge and experience with you. My rating on Chess(dot)com is comparable to the average tournament players (around 1600).

This course is special because you not only learn the basics, I will show you games with computers and live games with other players. I'll walk you through the games and explain some of the most basic scenarios that happen in chess games so that you will have a better idea of how you can get started with playing chess.

This course doesn't require you to know anything. In fact, I expect that everyone who's going to start are complete beginners who are excited about Chess and want to learn how to play.

At the end of the course, you will be able to start playing chess games with family and friends at home or challenge normal people at coffee houses and places like that.

I'm sure this course will bring a lot of value to you. And of course, as an instructor of the course, I am happy to answer your questions and to help you when you have any problems.

Good luck and I'll see you on the inside!
