Welcome to 'Chess for All Ages'
Chess Instruction, Chess History, Chess for Fun

Dear Visitor - From September 2002 to August 2008, I was privileged to serve as the Chess Guide for About.com. During that time, I produced one feature article per week. Although About.com has an exclusive, perpetual license to use my material, it's unlikely that they will ever use it again.

After I left, the company gave me permission to reuse the material: 'It would be fine to use your content as you please.' Here are copies of those articles.

These pages are a work in progress and should evolve substantially as I continue to develop them. For a full history and current status of the project, see my related blog Chess for All Ages.

Please feel free to provide feedback by commenting against the latest blog post listed under posts with label About.com on the blog. - Kind regards, Mark
