All Things Chess Review:
I have been a casual chess player for 30 years and always wanting to improve my game. I tried everything including IM tutors and dozens of books, tapes, videos, and online courses. After working at this for years I can tell you nothing else on the Internet compares to the outstanding education and training offered on All Things Chess.I give Kevin Butler my 100% unqualified recommendation as the best chess trainer I have found in 30 years. -Gerald Newman, Esq.

  1. just right!

    This is exactly what I have been looking for. A step by step presentation that will allow one to progress up to a high level. Some other programs skip over the basics.

  2. The best

    This is the best (and best value) of the few chess courses I have taken. It showed me what a good course should contain.
