Welcome to The Chessfish.com

Welcome to my new website!

For those coming over from my blogger account, thanks for sticking with me. With this site, I will be able to add much better content than just a blog of my tournament experiences. There are sections for my recent games, my tournament schedule, and chess related product reviews.

Chess Amateurs Rejoice

I’m going to transition this site from just my tournament experiences, to a site that will help those just like me – chess players struggling to reach those magical ELO ranks of Expert and Master. If that describes you, then please explore the rest of the site.


I’ve read hundreds of chess books (used to own about that many too). Some helped me improve, most did not. I’ll review some of my favorites. I’ll review chess software that I’ve used – for players and for tournament directors. I’ll review online programs designed to improve amateur play.

Readers will Decide Content

World Chess Champion

This site will evolve as time goes on. I would LOVE to get feedback from you, the readers.  Should I add a section for beginners? Should I give updates on elite chess tournaments? Should I add bios for the best players in the world? Perhaps even the best players of all time? Let me know what you would like to see.

Also, let me know what you don’t want to see.

  1. Tony,
    I have played chess most of my life, not very good. My son is 11 and took chess last year at boy scout camp. He wants to play and I think your site will help him get a little more information about strategy, he does not think beyond the move he is on. I think that chess the planning that you have to do in a chess game helps with life decisions, as you have to plan many moves ahead, what do you think about this.

    1. Hi John,
      I agree. Chess helps build critical decision making skills, and it strengthens concentration. The brain is a muscle and it needs to be exercised just like other muscles. Chess is a fun way to do that. The US needs to get on board with most of the European countries and make chess part of the curriculum for young kids.
