In a series of seven videos shown below; I take a look at some of the most beautiful chess moves of all time. I have suggested that the viewer stops at certain stages to try and find the correct solution. Good luck and I hope that you enjoy!
The game shown in this blog post is an amazing modern day example of a romantic king hunt. Rarely seen at top level nowadays, this game is a refreshing reminder of why we love chess. Magnus had better watch out for this Wei Yi character…
I was extremely lucky to get a chance to play and chat to the world’s most exciting chess player, my friend Baadur Jobava!
In this exciting extended 45 minute video, we play some light hearted exhibition chess. With an exclusive chat about whats coming up for Baadur.
Yet again I have been trying my luck out in the world of speed chess. In the post below you can watch videos of me, handle – Psycho-Cowboy, playing against a range of players with a range of results!
Just of late I have been contacted by no less than half a dozen reporters from some of the most popular tabloid and broadsheet papers in Britain.
Was this because of some amazing chess result that I have had? Or maybe for some other positive reason that will encourage the chess world?
No, no, no. First it was to get my opinion on the ‘cheating epidemic’ that was engulfing the chess world. Then to get my views on some controversial comments made by world championship finalist Nigel Short and finally to hear what I have to say about the ‘epidemic of accusing cheating epidemic’.
I have recently been having some fun trying my arm at commentating on some 5 minute games. Games that I have played on the Internet Chess Club. The reason I started this was that I noticed a number of my loses have been posted up online, by enthusiastic online commentators Kingscrusher and ChessExplained. Just waiting now to play one of them, so that I can even the score! In the post below you can take a look at some of the videos that I have already filmed.
‘This is the legendary Ivan Sokolov’s first ever DVD. It is with great pleasure and honour that GingerGM is able to bring Ivan’s vast experience of our beautiful game to video.
Ivan has been part of the world’s chess elite for all of his adult life. In his youth Ivan was tipped by many as being a future world champion. His career has incuded victories over Kasparov and a large number of the world’s elite.
Read below to see some of the positions that Ivan deals with in his DVD.
The lessons shown in the DVD are given with his unique insight and touch of humour.
You can buy the DVD from our shop.
The production quality is first-rate and so this all adds up to a tremendous package. I highly recommend the DVD.IM Andrew Martin, English Chess Federation Right Move Magazine, February 2010
Williams can be described as the world’s leading authority on the subject. Not only has Williams written about the opening, he has also played it for about twenty years. Williams’s understanding of his topic shines through whenever he is on the screen. The presentation is fluid, as he unhesitatingly talks about the opening and its many nuances and variations. It is as though he is giving the viewer a one-on-one lesson on the opening.Carsten Hansen, Chess Cafe
Grandmaster Jones is undoubtedly one of the World’s leading experts on the Grand Prix Attack against the Sicilian Defence. On this DVD, He '...reveals the secrets behind his success' through 26 video lectures.Sean Marsh, Marsh Towers
The technical merits of the DVDs are also considerable. Comparing them with the Chessbase DVDs, there is no doubt that GingerGM have raised the bar in terms of professionalism and production standards.Steve Giddins, British Chess Magazine
