The all-time leading video contributor to ChessVideos.TV, curtains (i.e. IM Greg Shahade), now has a youtube channel where he posts new videos.

If you enjoyed his videos on ChessVideos.TV, you'll enjoy them on youtube. If you are a fan I highly recommend you subscribe to his channel.
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.
