Despite the defection of Curtains to Youtube and a subsequent dropoff in traffic, this site is still alive and well. Steve Farmer and myself continue to post videos while others such as Sarciness and ketchuplover are contributing comments and games as well.

I'd like to remind everyone that this site hosts a vast treasury of great chess videos from both pro and amateur alike- content that is only available here. Because of the forum format, it's not terribly convenient to browse through the collection however, the search function works quite well and through the keyword function, you can search any subject or author.

Do us a favor though:hen you find a video you particularly like, leave a comment to remind us all. There is no one person who knows *all* the great stuff on here, so video bumps are appreciated!
We offer thousands of free chess videos to help you improve your game. The range of videos include lessons from top players to those focused on improving your chess tactics. Chess is a hugely popular game of tact and skill, popular online and off. Many players enjoy other Internet opponent/strategy games such as poker (still popular in the USA), which can be played for real money - many American players do this full time as professionals.
