Steve Pribut's Chess Resources
For many years we've been the author and caretaker of the USENET FAQ on Chess. This document is still in existence, but is outmoded, outdated, and not really of much use anymore. Way back in 1994, when there were very few chess sites around the document was helpful, and for over 10 years this web site had a reputation for useful links. Years pass, links die, the web grows, and now there are many sites that cover chess in depth. The very first site that I recall was Mark Crowther's "The Week In Chess", was wonderful back in the day and is still doing a fantastic job.
We are reorganizing and will highlight some of the best sites on the web here.
