Mike Basman Chess Homepage

Welcome to Mike Basman’s Chess Shop.

Do you want to improve your chess? Are you ready for a lesson from the International Master Michael Basman himself? Check out the chess lessons or books on offer and order today!

What can you do if you already have chess lessons with Mike Basman and you’ve already bought all his books? Have a look at what else the site has to offer. While we are all social distancing, in person chess competitions have all been put on hold, and long-distance, and virtual chess has become the new normal. Have a look and see if you would be interested in playing in a ‘telex’ event organised by Mike Basman.

Alternatively check out the results of these tournaments in our blog, or go there to see our articles and chess tips so you can level up before you compete.

We have recently launched all our social media pages, and you can now find us on:

We are currently livestreaming on Twitch every Wednesday between 1 and 2pm, and the streams are soon after released to our YouTube page in case you were unable to catch us live.

If you would like to get in touch instead, contact us. We’d love to hear from you.
