Tracing its roots back to northern India around 1500 years ago, chess journeyed through Asia, the Middle East, and into Europe by the 10th century. Initially the pastime of the elite, the 20th century saw its popularity surge across all social classes, further amplified by the Netflix smash “The Queen’s Gambit,” which chronicles the ascent of a prodigious orphaned chess player, catapulting chess to unprecedented popularity.

Record-breaking and history-making, the lengthiest chess match spanned 269 moves, culminating in a stalemate. Theoretically, the longest conceivable match could stretch to approximately 5,900 moves. The inaugural official World Chess Championship in 1886 marked the beginning of the quest to crown the global chess sovereign, a competition welcoming all, with specialized tournaments for seniors, women, youths, and even computer algorithms.

Alan Turing, a pioneer in computer science, created the first chess-playing program in 1952, setting the stage for the future. By 1997, IBM’s Deep Blue made headlines by defeating Garry Kasparov, a prodigy and the world’s top-ranked player. Today, advanced chess software consistently outplays grandmasters, with Russia boasting over 250 grandmasters, the highest globally.

Immerse yourself in the intellectual challenge of online chess to refine your skills and maybe, one day, achieve mastery.
