Just Links

Here I am going to have a list of pages with mostly links to other chess pages.  
Not a lot of chat. Just a short description and a hot-link or hyper-link for you to click on.

Disclaimer: On this page are links to pages with a list of nothing but links to other chess sites. 
I have personally verified every single page (of links) is out there currently. I have  NOT  verified every single link on every page. 
This would obviously have taken too much time. 
(I also don't a lot of time checking these links ...) 


They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  

I have found literally dozens of websites - - - 
where all they seem to do is basically do is copy my work.

Take this  website  for example. His "Top Ten" list of the 10 best chess games of all time is similar to my own. Many times, he only appears to have copied my analysis ... with few, if any,   changes. 

His list of the "Greatest Players of All Time" is also VERY similar to mine. 

And this is NOT the only one, I have found many, many more websites just like this. 
 (I have no intention of listing them all!) 


Another interesting  article  about theft in the chess world ... its more commonplace than you might first think.  

I was sitting at home in front of my computer one day, and it occurred to me that I had hundreds of "favorite places," bookmarked and organized into various folders. I thought it would be great to verify all these pages. Then I could put them out onto the Internet as a kind of public service.


One of the ideas is that between this page and my "Cool Sites" page; is that you should be 
able to find almost any relevant Internet Chess Site!!! Happy Surfing! 

One of the absolutely best websites in the world for listing web-sites, has got to be to be FIDE's "Top Chess Web Sites."  Easily one of the most comprehensive lists of all the best web-sites all around the world. This one should be one of your very first stops, if you are looking for chess new web sites. Click HERE to go there now!!

I don't play any chess there. [And I don't "endorse" too many sites. By, "endorse," I mean give it my full seal of approval. Like I give, say, The U.S. Chess Federation's site.] (But I do have a few friends who used to swear by this service.) And I think I am saying something, just by the fact that it (this site) is not listed on my cool sites page. But "Kali" has a chess page and chess playing software.
