The desire to spread chess education among those in need was the main motivation that drove us to start this site a few months ago. But there was more.
From other chess endeavours we had stockpiled dozens of essays on strategy, opening surveys and analyzed (correspondence) games, all of them in English. A place to
dump publish them permanently was required.
The original idea was to start a German chess blog with a focus on fundamentals, then add an advanced section in English after some time. We didn’t quite stick to the fundamentals throughout all of our German content (in fact some of it is quite demanding), soon added a news section, but the original idea still stands.
“Perlen vom Bodensee” will remain a German chess blog for the main part. However, from today on we are bilingual.
