My World of Chess: Study, Reviews, and More
Hello Chess Enthusiasts! I am thrilled to introduce you to the inaugural edition of the MattPlaysChess Newsletter. If you're passionate about chess and simply love immersing yourself in the game, you've come to the right place.
📢 Why this Newsletter?
While my website, mattplayschess.com, remains a personal journey through the captivating landscape of chess, the MattPlaysChess Newsletter takes it a step further. Here, I'll delve into the more captivating aspects of chess I come across, sharing with you the discoveries, thoughts, and experiences that make this game so endlessly fascinating.
🔍 What to Expect
My primary aim is to bring forth the more captivating facets of chess that I come across during our journey. Here's a sneak peek of what awaits you in our upcoming editions:
1. Book Reviews: There are countless chess improvement books out there and I will not review almost any of them. Instead, I will focus on books that I find interesting that are “chess adjacent.” These could be books about mindset, psychology, or learning and how I use them to think about my chess.
2. Study Methods That Work For Me: I’ve tried so many ways to improve at chess like Chess Dojo, Aimchess, ChessMood, Chess Steps, Puzzle Rush, No Blitz, All Blitz, and much more. If I find something that actually seems to work, I’ll write about it.
3. Tournament Recaps: Want to know what it is like playing in the untamed Wild West of beginner sections of tournaments? I’ll let you know.
