Why subscribe to The Chess Circuit?

Can you play chess? Do you sit up and take notice every time you see a chess board in an advertisement, or a chess-themed episode of your favourite crime drama?

Did you used to play chess at school and you’ve recently rediscovered an interest in the game? Do you collect chess sets or books?

Welcome to The Chess Circuit by me, Adam Raoof. If you want to keep in touch with what’s going on in the chess world, this might be the place to be. At the very least you’ll find out about my tournaments and those events which I know and personally recommend.

I’ve done a lot of stuff in the chess world. I’ve been the Captain of the England Olympiad team, a referee at the World Championship qualifiers, the editor of The British Chess Magazine and the author of plenty of articles about chess.

I’m also a FIDE (World Chess Federation) International Arbiter (referee) and a chess tournament organiser, and the only Certified Steps Method Trainer in the UK!
