The Chess-Amateur.com project is a new way of chess publication. We believe that a website is a better way than others, to publish chess information.
There are three huge advantages:
- Almost unlimited space
in contrary to conventional books we have almost unlimited space to publish our content
- Always up to date
when a book is printed the content of the current release cannot be changed anymore. A website is updated within minutes and all user have access to the same updated information
- User Interactivity
our users can contribute to our content
- Free to use
we don't charge our users for using our website. ( PDF content or Chessbase Format files may be available only against a small fee per file )
Chess-Amateur.com is one of a series of websites, which follow the same concept. Our main topics at Chessfriend.com are the Opening Theory of the Queen's Gambit and an annotated game collection of classical world class player Siegbert Tarrasch. Additionally you will find annotated games of the big strategic thinker Aaron Nimzowitsch and the "Endgame Virtuoso" Akiba Rubinstein.
There are many ways how to publish games online. Modern and trendy are currently socalled replayers where the whole game is animated. But there are many problems with them, for example on mobile devices. We prefer the visualizing "Move by Move" presentation of chess games and opening theory. As said, we have almost unlimited space available on our web servers. It's doesn't matter if we are using 100, 1.000, 100.000 or 1.000.000 diagrams to present the material.
