Our organization is designed to promote the great game of chess, most notably on the scholastic level. We offer the opportunity for elementary and junior high/high schools to develop and/or improve their after school chess programs, by placing well trained and experienced chess coaches and providing interactive and challenging chess lessons.Once these students reach a certain level of chess playing proficiency, a chess team is created which will represent the school in scholastic chess tournaments.Aside from supplying the chess sets and boards necessary to sustain the program, we also have a large chess store where you can purchase chess books, software, chess pieces and boards as well as chess clocks. You can also shop in person at our bricks and mortar chess store at 325 East 88th Street in Manhattan where we sell all of this chess equipment and more.We organize monthly scholastic chess tournaments within the Greater NY area where the students can practice their skills and earn huge trophy prizes. Our awards are the most plentiful and the largest on the circuit because we produce them in-house and offer you the opportunity to purchase these chess trophies and plaques at a discounted price.

A Modern Classic – Second Edition! When it first appeared, Dvoretsk’s Endgame Manual was immediately recognized by novice and master alike as one of the best books ever published on the endgame. The third edition, revised and enlarged – now over 400 pages – covers all the most important concepts required for endgame mastery. “I am sure that those who study this work carefully will not only play the endgame better, but overall, their play will improve. One of the secrets of the Russian chess school is now before you, dear reader!” – From the Foreword to the First Edition by Grandmaster Artur Yusupov “Going through this book will certainly improve your endgame knowledge, but just as important, it will also greatly improve your ability to calculate variations… What really impresses me is the deep level of analysis in the book… All I can say is: This is a great book. I hope it will bring you as much pleasure as it has me.” – From the Preface to the First Edition by International Grandmaster Jacob Aagaard Here’s what they had to say about the First Edition: “Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual … may well be the chess book of the year… [It] comes close to an ultimate one-volume manual on the endgame.” – Lubomir Kavalek in his chess column of December 1, 2003 in the Washington Post. “Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual is quite simply a masterpiece of research and insight. It is a tremendous contribution to endgame literature, certainly the most important one in many years, and destined to be a classic of the literature (if it isn’t already one). The famous trainer Mark Dvoretsky has put together a vast number of examples that he has not only collected, but analysed and tested with some of the world’s strongest players. This is a particularly important book from the standpoint of clarifying, correcting, and extending the theory of endings. Most of all, Dvoretsky’s analysis is staggering in its depth and accuracy.” – John Watson, reviewing DEM at The Week In Chess 2003 Book of the Year – JeremySilman.com 2003 Book of the Year – Seagaard Chess Reviews: “This is an extraordinary good chess book. To call this the best book on endgames ever written seems to be an opinion shared by almost all reviewers and commentators. And I must say that I am not to disagree.” – Erik Sobjerg

10 big brain benefits of playing chess

Not for nothing is chess known as “the game of kings.” No doubt the rulers of empires and kingdoms saw in the game fitting practice for the strategizing and forecasting they themselves were required to do when dealing with other monarchs and challengers. As we learn more about the brain, some are beginning to push for chess to be reintroduced as a tool in the public’s education. With benefits like these, they have a strong case.
