The Week in Chess
This is home to the London Chess Center. The site was recommended by Bob Prosser. Looks like it has all the news and games you could want. You can read the latest chess news online or download zipped files to read later. Also has games in ChessBase, PGN and CB6 format. Thanks Bob.
Another recommendation from Bob Prosser. (So is the next one.) Looks like an interesting site. The webmaster says the purpose is to promote chess. Their mission statement: To promote our royal game with vision, and on a grander scale than ever before imagined in America.
a) It is our goal to see that CHESS is offered as an accredited and optional course, available to every child in an American Public Grade School.
b) To stage high profile events that capture the imagination of not only the chess playing public, but also the imagination of the American public at large.
c) To do everything in our power to develop an AMERICAN WORLD CHESS CHAMPION, and an AMERICAN WOMEN’S WORLD CHESS CHAMPION.
A commercial site (Thanks again, Bob) This is the home of ClubMate - the Chess
Database for Windows. Bob says it has free upgrades.
