The most efficient way to gain rating points is Action Chess. Why play a six-hour game when you can play a one-hour game for the same rating points? With modern computer analysis, chess growth happens away from the board, reviewing played games. SIX COMPLETE GAMES in the same time of one traditional tournament game means six times the learning opportunity and six times the potential rating point gain - all in one afternoon.

Action Chess is the most competitive and most fun form of standard-rated chess! If you're trying to become an Expert, Master, or scholastic player trying to move up the age lists, Action Chess is your best way to achieve your goals.

Masks and vaccines optional.
