Mar 4th 2015 at 9:58 PM

Some chess sets are simply too pretty and elegant to play. Case in point: those that have veneer boards and pieces that are carved from expensive woods or molded from crystals and metals. If you don't want wear and tear on your precious thousand-dollar chess set, playing online is your perfect bargain, although nothing beats playing an actual game with your favorite opponents. Playing online, however, is a great way to improve your skills and keep your game in shape without causing wear to your elegant chess collection.

Luxurious chess sets such as those made out of inexpensive to expensive woods like ebonized boxwood, rosewood, sheesham, exotic red woods, padauk, blood rosewood, ebony, red sandal wood, and bud rosewood are only some of the best collectible chess sets you can see in the market. Chess pieces carved out from bone or exotic woods are great as collector's items, as well as those made out of combination metals or a mixture of carved wood, bone, and metal. Crystal chess sets made out of glass and similar materials are also worth collecting.

With online chess, you can keep your luxurious chess sets in their perfect shape and original condition while improving your game in a virtual chess board. Save your hand-carved set for special matches and do your practice runs online! This way, you can learn as much as you can without getting a scratch on your precious chess board. Luxurious wooden, metal, crystal, and bone chess sets are considered classic collectible items that any chess enthusiast should care for.

Thanks to online chess communities and chess schools, you can enjoy playing your favorite game without damaging your favorite chess set. Find an online internet club and school where you can get the best education and training when it comes to tactical and strategic chess play. There are great online chess communities and training websites that can greatly improve your tactical and strategic skills through programs that have been designed to meet your precise needs. Find a chess school with trainers and mentors that have the expertise to teach anyone the best techniques to win and dominate major tournaments.

Online chess also has many great advantages as it is easier to set up and analyze chess piece positions when the board is online, in an easy to read diagram. With these kinds of platforms, you can spend greater time learning chess than moving around chess pieces in a board.
