About us

The project Chess ABC saw the light of day in 2015 but it did not always bear that name, initially it was called CHESS RATINGS. The project started spontaneously, and as a personal project of one of the owners.

The first version only showed rating lists that could have been filtered quickly and easily in various ways and were also responsive to all screens.

Since the first version of the website was well received and made a good impression on chess players, new functionalitys were added over time, and in 2018 it was transformed. The project had new look and name CHESS ABC, and in addition to the rating lists, the following functionalities appeared:

  • Review of chess games that were already played;
  • You can prepare against your future opponent by playing a game, and the program would play moves that your opponent has already played in a given position (in the previous games against other opponents).
  • You can create a database of your played games
  • In the Tablebase section, you can place the game endings that botherd you and get solutions for them, or how many moves it takes for the game to finish and what are the moves
  • In the Tournaments section you can see the upcoming tournaments, which you can filter by country
  • In the Chess Problems section you can solve chess problems, thus creating your rating on our site
  • In the Web Add-ons section you can implement our rating lists and chess problems on your site. This is a great opportunity for all chess clubs and those sites dedicated to chess
  • There is also a blog, where we write about chess news

In 2019, other partners joinined the project to help with the organization itself, presentation and greater accessibility.

All CHESS ABC associates are chess enthusiasts, so apart from work, we also invest our heart into the project to give other chess enthusiasts their corner to hang out and the best solutions for them.

Although there are websites that offer users these or similar features, what makes us different is that we have everything in one place, and we strive for perfection. To us our users come first and we want to give them the best possible experience.

Whether you are a beginner, a chess enthusiast, or a chess master, you will find chess information, add-ons and, most importantly, US: THE TEAM behind CHESS ABC.

What we would like to do is bring together people from different parts of the world and give them the best opportunities to develop not only in chess wise but in every aspect.

As Simon Williams put it, " The beauty of chess is it can be whatever you want it to be. It transcends language, age, race, religion, politics, gender and socioeconomic background. Whatever your circumstances, anyone can enjoy a good fight to the death over the chess board. "
