YIP’S TOP CHESS BLOGS:
Canada’s NUMBER ONE source for Canadian Chess news, games and other information! Started several months ago as an off-shoot of the popular BCN, Yip has revolutionized the way the average Canadian amateur finds out what is happening in Canada! Updated daily!
As a short aside, since Yip has started to cover Canadian Chess tournaments and players, the CFC has been scrambling to try to catch up! The CFC website has just created a dedicated newsfeed, but so far the editor behind this initiative has stumbled, messed-up and , at times, failed miserably to deliver the right content for the CFC’s members! WHY? Because they can not match Yip’s passion for chess and writing!
For opening theory buffs! Updated daily, Yip presents the latest theoretical developments starting with 1.e4 from the world’s top tournaments. Plus plenty of opening secrets explained just for you!
The same genre as above, but devoted exclusively to 1.d4. Want to know the latest ideas in the Grunfeld? The Slav? The Benko? Plus much, much more! Then this blog is for you! Updated daily.
