Happy National Chess Day! 🇺🇸

This week we celebrate both National Chess Day and Theory Thursday with a fresh free lesson, The World Cup. Learn from Magnus’ recent game against Alexey Dreev, and how creating a solid plan helped Magnus in his second game against his opponent in the second round of the tournament.

This new lesson is available now on Magnus Trainer!

...that National Chess Day has been around for more than 40 years? National Chess Day was declared by President Ford on October 9th, 1976 as part of the United States’ bicentennial celebration. This year it falls on October 14.
