Welcome to The Chess Journal, the premier Chess resource site for beginner chess players.
My name is William, and I started The Chess Journal in 2020 after becoming obsessed with Chess after my first game. I knew how to play, but haven’t played a game since I was a teenager. I started The Chess Journal with one goal in mind: to create Chess tutorials that are simple and easy to understand.
There are a lot of excellent resources out there for Chess players to learn from. Mostly in video form. But I couldn’t find many detailed articles for those just starting out. There is almost an infinite amount to learn for the game of Chess and I plan on making The Chess Journal the best free resource there is.
Who Is The Chess Journal For?
The Chess Journal started out as a resource site for Chess beginners like me. I believe in helping the new chess player with guides that make sense for just about anyone while also not saying it with an elitist mindset.
If you have questions about Chess, such as:
How can I get started playing Chess?
How can I ______ in Chess?
Which Chess opening should I pick for _______?
How do I stop ______ in my Chess games?
What are the _______ that will help me in Chess?
Or if you have any other questions about Chess, then The Chess Journal is the place to be.
