You may be happy just to remain a keen chess enthusiast who loves the mental challenge that chess provides. Because of your busy working schedule you cannot afford the time it takes to surf the internet in search of accurate and reliable information on current tournament play and latest chess trends.
So why not take it easy, sit down, relax and enjoy chess at your own pace in the comfort of your own home by reading our bi-monthly publication. Reviewing the state of world chess every second month is a reasonable period of time to stay tuned to your beloved game, and without adversely impacting on your obligations to your professional work and family.

Actually, any column in American Chess Magazine can be used as a lesson, or indeed many lessons. Our contributors write with heart and soul and do not cheat their readers by artificially lowering the level of their work just to appeal to the widest possible audience.
If you’re an active, titled or expert player, then you are almost certainly looking for chess material that will give you the edge over your opponent in your next club or tournament game. Well, please be assured that each and every ACM is made up of articles written by your brothers-in-arms!
