Learning Chess and Discovering Its Secrets!
Below you will find the plan I recommend for you to learn how to play chess and to begin your journey in the world of the noble game... and all of this for free! If you are a beginner, I recommend that you start with the section on the rules and that you follow the links at the end of each page to continue the tutorial or to chose the lessons that fit you the best. If you have already mastered the rules, you can work on the more advanced lessons: the algebraic notation, the phases of the game (the opening, the middlegame and the endgame), the checkmate patterns, the tactics or the strategy. You can also use the menu at the top of the page to search for specific topics or navigate through the site. Have fun!
