  • Things a player might access (puzzles, playing a game, lessons). These player components vary on the user — lessons for beginners, or folks looking to brush up on tactics or plays.
  • People looking to be more serious about their game play can go to the tournament, or do a drill, or a puzzle battle.
  • The social element, which is a more casual component. Chess.com has a huge array of sponsored streamers, as well as the clubs you can join. There’s news and articles to read, the streaming content around tournaments, reviewing stats, etc.
  • Chess.com is meant to be a place where players can go play games with their friends, learn more about the game, and build their strength as a player.
  • It’s also a place for fans to come watch sponsored content, read about up to date chess news, follow along with tournaments and join clubs.
