What our clients say about us
Guillaume Loret
Engineering Lead at Walmart Inc.
This was a great learning experience - I learnt in a group with other people, but I was flexible to study at any time of the week. The ABCHESS platform was the place to study and practice, I think it's an effective approach. I recommend this to anyone with tight schedule.
Lucille Villance

The program is perfect for my active lifestyle. The flexibility of the program allowed me to learn and improve my chess knowledge without having to commit to long hours. The international community of participants was a great bonus and I was able to make new friends from around the globe. I would recommend it to those looking for a fun and engaging hobby that also allows for personal growth and development.

Founder of HeyEveryone
I always wanted to learn chess, but never had a stable enough schedule to sign up for online sessions with a teacher. I liked this new group format called mentorship as I studied along with other people, but also at my own pace.
