Like The Queen’s Gambit’s main character, who famously uses a visualisation technique to train, the online academy features a tool called the blind bot, which will help players train with their eyes closed, just like Beth Harmon style.
“The chess board is like a battleship. It’s like a language. Learning how to visualise is a great way of improving your skills,” Storey explained.
This isn’t the only project up the chess player’s sleeve, with an academy for boys in the works too.
The Queen’s Gambit Academy costs €3 per week on their yearly plan or €20 a month with an option to cancel anytime. For those who want to up their game more seriously, they also offer also private coaching lessons.
