Chess Journeys

Kevin Scull

Welcome to Chessable, fans of Chess Journeys. Chessable is a big part of the process for many of the adult improvers that I interview, and it plays a large role in my improvement as well. I use Chessable nearly every day, losing that 200+ day streak still hurts. I use it for a variety of tasks, some using spaced repetition and some not. I take full advantage of the spaced repetition side with my opening and tactics work. I’ve built a bunch of secret openings courses for myself based on my repertoire. I’ve also been working my way through the Woodpecker Method. Additionally, I use Chessable as an ultraportable book reader and I’ve bought books published elsewhere like 100 Endgames You Must Know. I also appreciate the loads of books/courses that can’t be found elsewhere. Be sure to check out all the great courses from IM Andres Toth (episode 13 guest). If you’d like any tips on how to use Chessable as an adult improver feel free to reach out to me. Have a great journey!
