As part of our continuous quest to bring the best of chess to our Grand Master web site - www.gmchess.com - we are delighted to announce a unique cooperation with Internet Chess Club - www.chessclub.com.
We are now able to offer our popular lectures, game analyses and tuition ON-LINE. Grand Masters will be available to teach, analyse or play with visitors to our web site.
Whilst this will not replace our current services, we believe that it will add an exciting new dimension to them by providing clients with an immediacy of information and the unique "hands-on" feel of learning or playing with one of our Grand Masters.
Existing and new clients of Internet Chess Club will be informed on a daily basis of all GMChess events (lessons, games etc.). If the date and time is not convenient, they will be able to simply contact GMChess to arrange a date and time which will be convenient for them.
We are sure that the combination of Internet Chess Club and GMChess will prove to be a successful addition to the internet world of chess.
