Its interesting too that although chess is not a physical activity the males are still better than their female equivalent. I watched Magnus destroy the female world champion on chess.comThere’s a lot of youtube chess content. A lot of it falls into the chess entertainment category.

The current chess world champion is a Dane who is a bit of a chad. Magnus Carlsen is his name.
How many floppy disks does the program use? =)I haven't played in several years, but I will recommend the software program Chessmaster to anyone looking to better their game. I have an old copy which sadly I looked up and is still the most current version (Chessmaster XI, released in 2007).
It had a series of lessons and tutorials by International Master Josh Waitzkin and it had a bunch of famous games you could watch replays/commentary of. It's so old you should be able to pick it up for nothing, and it's worth it for the lessons alone. You may have to run it in compatibility mode.
