This is a special bonus section just for Gold Card subscribers (those who subscribe to all twelve sections).
New subscribers will probably be interested in the One stop games download where they can download all the annotated ChessPublishing games in double-quick time.
With Chess needing a constant commitment to learning, our Gold subscriptions offer great value. Many players also enjoy other opponent-based games such as poker (which are easily found online now).
Whilst some people argue there is also an element of strategy in casino-based games (e.g. these for UK gamblers), arguably Chess is one of the most challenging games that involves out-thinking your opponents.
Learning how to play chess is just one of the many mind empowering games you can find online. For more games of skill try blackjack and poker, or for games of luck try roulette and video slots. Whichever great games you choose, you can find them here.
The jewel of this section is Blindfold Chess written by Manuel Lopez exclusively for Gold Card subscribers, which discusses the History of Blindfold Chess, how to visualise the position without use of a board, and why this is an essential requisite for a strong chessplayer.
However, he doesn't stop there, as he also offers many different types of exercises to develop your blindfold ability, and a special program (written by Manuel himself) to further enhance it!
Next, a section on Opening Trends in Computer Chess by computer expert Harvey Williamson.
