Links to chess sites
We present only a small collection of chess sites. The selection is based on two criteria: orientation and quality. More links can be found at the search directory of ChessWorld or with the "usual search engines".
The chess sites of our members are especially recommended.
Hint. Do you have a website and want to link to PlayChess? I prepared some texts and graphics for you. Please let me know when your link is online.
You don't know Tim Harding?
I cannot believe this.
You must visit his site. And if you are really interested in correspondence chess (playing here should suffice as a qualification), you should consider to subscribe to ChessMail. I am sure you will enjoy every single chess article written by Tim Harding.
