Garry Kasparov, former World Chess Champion, and global media company Vivendi, have announced an exclusive 55-part series masterclass on the multimedia chess playing and content platform, Kasparovchess.com. The Garry Kasparov masterclass video series is designed to bring beginners and experts alike into the strategic mind of Garry Kasparov so they can tackle the game of chess with confidence.
Launched in April 2021, Kasparovchess.com offers features for all players, whether they are enthusiasts or beginners, including thousands of chess puzzles, online matches, in-depth tutorials, articles, documentaries, and now an exclusive masterclass with Kasparov himself.
Kasparov’s all-new masterclass video series is designed to showcase the grandmaster’s strategic approach, giving both beginners and experts a unique insight into his methods and ethos, so they can get what may be a whole new perspective on chess–and become esports’ future champions.
Chess has firmly established itself as one of the most lucrative esports markets. Current world champion Magnus Carlsen was 2020’s highest-paid esports player, and history could repeat itself in 2021, following his recent success in the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour.
Kasparov became the youngest world chess champion in 1985. He retired from public chess in 2005 and has since launched a foundation to help children have access to chess worldwide. He recently helped advise for “Queen’s Gambit”, a show about a chess prodigy that became Netflix’s most-watched scripted limited series to date.
The masterclass is now open to the public and can be found here.
