Learn to play chess like a pro with private lessons

“For in the idea of chess and the development of the chess mind we have a picture of the intellectual struggle of mankind.” -Richard Reti

While not necessarily wanting to be so deep and existential, many of the world’s best chess players will claim that it is one of the most important games to ever exist and that it shares a lot of parallels with life. A good chess player concentrates on their game, carefully ponders their future moves, and tries to understand the strategy of their opponent. Similarly, to be successful and admired in life, a person must deeply concentrate on tasks that they deem important, focus on their goals for the future recognizing that a wrong move could set them back, and attempt to understand their friends and family to build stronger bonds. The resemblances between chess and life are undeniable and that’s what makes it so acclaimed and deeply respected. Also, just like important aspects of life, it takes practice to get better at chess. Nonetheless, through the help of professional tutors in the Glasgow area, everyone, no matter their age and interests, can become a chess expert!

Largest Chess Competitions in the World

Whether you’re learning chess just for fun or for a specific reason, it doesn’t hurt to investigate journals about the game and learn more about events and activities that take place in the world of chess. Such as? The most significant competitions and playing events in the world. For instance, little do many amateur chess players know, there are hundreds of chess tournaments held annually around the world. Whereabouts? Well, every two years there is a Chess World Cup that is held in a different city each time. For example, the 2019 Chess World Cup was held in Russia from September 9 to October 4. Other significant chess tournaments include the Tata Steel competition and the London Chess Classic. It is important to state that amongst major chess competitions, there are some that have happened only once, and there are others that are recurring and take place annually or every few years. However, the mother of all chess tournaments is none other than the Chess Olympiad that takes place every two years and has chess players representing the countries they are from. The Chess Olympiad was first established in 1924 and has attracted the world’s greatest chess players for nearly a century. Also, it is worth mentioning that although there are massive global chess competitions held for world-renowned players, there are a lot of local tournaments that a person can watch or participate in their hometown or nearby city.

Best Chess Players of All Time

Throughout history, there has been a lot of noteworthy chess players who have made their name known on the world stage. It is a smart idea for amateur chess enthusiasts to study the style of fantastic chess players to better their skills and find motivation to do better in one of the universe’s best games. Once a person gets involved in the “chess circle, there are few names that are come about frequently in the top ten best players; however, there is consistent dispute as to who is the best chess player of all time. Nonetheless, some of the best players include Alexander Alekhine who was known in the 1920s and 1930s as a well-rounded player with a knack for solving complex moves. Emanuel Lasker must be mentioned because he held the position of World Champion in the field of chess for 27 years from 1894 to 1921. Anatoly Karpov from Russia is a legend in the world of chess for his end game techniques and strategy. With most world champions being of European descent, Bobby Fischer is a unicorn in the sense that not only is he a Grand Master in chess but he was, and still to this day, the only American World Champion. Another name that is worthy of mention on the list of best chess players of all time is Magnus Carlsen for being one of the youngest chess players to dominate major competitions and rankings. And, I think we saved the best for last, Garry Kasparov. He ruled over the world of chess for nearly 20 years throughout the late 1980s to the early 2000s. Kasparov is viewed by various other Chess Grandmasters as the best player of all time and a major influence in their playing style. Will you be next on the list of greats?
