Quick FYI: Gar­ry Kas­parov is now teach­ing an online course on chess, appar­ent­ly his first online course ever. A grand­mas­ter and six-time World Chess Cham­pi­on, Kas­parov held the high­est chess rat­ing (until being sur­passed by Mag­nus Carlsen in 2013) and also the record for con­sec­u­tive tour­na­ment vic­to­ries (15 in a row). In his course, fea­tur­ing 29 video lessons, Kas­parov gives stu­dents “detailed lessons,” cov­er­ing “his favorite open­ings and advanced tac­tics,” all of which will help stu­dents “devel­op the instincts and phi­los­o­phy to become a stronger play­er.”

The course is being offered by Mas­ter­Class, the same ven­ture devel­op­ing class­es with these oth­er lumi­nar­ies–Her­bie Han­cock on JazzJane Goodall on the Envi­ron­mentDavid Mamet on Dra­mat­ic Writ­ingSteve Mar­tin on Com­e­dyAaron Sorkin on Screen­writ­ingGor­don Ram­say on Cook­ing, Judy Blume on Writ­ing, and Wern­er Her­zog on Film­mak­ing.

You can take this class by sign­ing up for a Mas­ter­Class’ All Access Pass. The All Access Pass will give you instant access to this course and 85 oth­ers for a 12-month peri­od.
