Website by ChessWise - Check out our New Chess Super Course!


ChessWise is the Internet's premier chess training center. We provide online chess lessons and chess training featuring audio lectures by Grandmasters  Maurice Ashley and Michael Rohde. All ChessWise Lessons have been revamped and  turned into one "Super Chess Course."

This 200+ lesson course is designed for new to intermediate level players (typically under 1900 rating). Three years of work at ChessWise has led to the creation of this course!


The Super Course includes:

 -- 20+ hours of audio lectures by Grandmasters Maurice Ashley and Michael Rohde -- all linked to our ChessWise Java Chess Board Interactive, drag and drop, timed (!) practice areas, quizzes, and full length exams
-- 200+ Lessons covering the very basics to openings, tactics, middlegame, endgames, and even general advice from our grandmasters
 -- Offline homework assignments
 -- Our 120-problem Chess eBook
 -- Your own "homeroom" where all your activity is tracked. You can re-take lessons as often as you want (many of our quizzes choose problems from a large pool of problems, so you can retake them often and learn even more).
 -- A system that allows you to work at your own pace!
