Kasparov’s chess platform will include documentaries, podcasts, articles and interviews between experts and well-known players from the chess community.
Chess legend Garry Kasparov launched KasparovChess, which took years to develop, with funding from private investors and media conglomerate Vivendi.
MasterClass, a platform that offers celebrity-produced lessons, invited Kasparov to give a class, who quickly became upset and realized that he had to downplay the concepts and stick to the particular structure that the platform would follow.
Kasparov Chess is a platform where chess players can share tips and tricks with players of all skill levels.
The platform includes documentaries, podcasts, articles and interviews between renowned experts and players in the chess community.
“So far more than a thousand videos have been recorded,” Kasparov said. “Apart from the content, the platform has a dedicated server attached.”
The platform also represents, in many ways, an expanded version of the chess lessons that were offered through the “Masterclass” years ago, with a primary focus on community and diversity.
Kasparov Chase can be joined with a monthly subscription of $ 13.99 or $ 119.99 per year, and most of the lessons have experts and post-match analysis that are played on the paid system.
The paid subscription system also gives users access to a database of 50,000 manually created puzzles, allowing players to practice specific skills.
There is a known competitor to this platform, Chess.com, which is a chess server, forum and website that was launched in 2005, with a subscription ranging from $ 5 per month to $ 29 per year.
Kasparov says: “What sets the platform apart is the focus on society, as its long-term goal is to connect global chess communities with each other and discover skilled players,” as well as giving others access to their expertise ( Kasparov’s experiences).
He believes that distance education during the pandemic has demonstrated the need for more interactive solutions and says, “It is time to move from what we are studying to how it applies to students.”
Kasparov became the youngest world chess champion in 1985 at the age of 22, retired in 2005 and launched a foundation to help children access chess around the world.
Kasparov recently helped advise on “The Queen’s Gambit,” a drama about a girl turned chess prodigy that was widely viewed on Netflix.
