Magazine a New Force for Chess in Connecticut


The new website for Connecticut Chess Magazine began in May 2010.

Starting out with zero-readership and then averaging 100 visitors per month by 2013.

A one-time print edition, costing $500, was sent to hundreds of Conn USCF players gave us the boost we needed.

From 2013 thru 2016 CCM averaged 1,500 visitors per month.

In 2016 we spent another $600 in advertising to reach out to new readers in Connecticut.

During 2017 Rob has gotten newspaper reports of our tournaments published in the New London Day, in the Norwich Bulletin, and twice in the Hartford Courant.

Connecticut Chess Magazine has averaged 3,000 visitors per month now for more than a year.

We are now the official state chess publication for Connecticut.

Our mission is to provide our readers with quality chess content, free promotion for chess events in Connecticut, and free reporting of the results, with games and photos.
