If you are already familiar with the fundamentals and want to learn secrets that will help you beat your friends, try Basic Stratagies and Advanced Tactics. Or, study your chess openings with our Opening Book. You can also test yourself with our interactive Chess Puzzles, or jump right into Tournament Play, where we'll tell you how to prepare for your first tournament.
