07 February 2019

Ginger GM are excited to announce the long-awaited release of our new interactive course format with two new titles: Ultimate Attacking Guide - Volume 1 with IM Lawrence Trent and How to Win Chess Tournaments with GM Danny Gormally.

Take a look now, many of the videos and puzzles are available free on! There’s a huge introductory discount too.

What’s different about these courses?

If you purchase a course with the “streaming” option (free for the time being), you can log in to and:

Watch the videos online in your browser (no download required)

Play through the moves in our custom PGN viewer (no additional chess software required)

Solve the puzzles related to the videos you’ve just watched in our puzzles app

You may remember that a while ago we announced - well, this is exactly what we had in mind, but instead of launching an entirely new website we’ve integrated the functionality into our existing website.

Ok, but can I still download the files?

Yes! You’re not obliged to take advantage of these new features. You can still download the videos and PGN files just like with any other Ginger GM product. Any puzzles will be provided as additional PGN files.
