Check this page out: wcc2004.fide.com There you can find view all the players games in the World Chess Championship 2004. Sadly not all of the strongest players are playing there. I'm not sure but I think that Anand and Kasparov didn't take part in this tournament. Still there are some really good players there. Enjoy! :)

74 ( +1 | -1 ) Book reviews (until you drop)ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/randybauer/ (see under reviews)
According to John Watson (yes, the author of "Secrets of modern chess strategy" and also a book reviewer at TWIC), Randy Bauer is one of the best chess book reviewers.
To quote from Randy Bauer's review page :"I love chess books. I have over fifteen hundred of them." (!!) Further he writes: "While I can generally find something to like in each, some are definitely better than others. My goal will be to point out the good and bad, from the practical player's perspective, in many of these books."

26 ( +1 | -1 ) Exeter Chess Clubinfo.ex.ac.uk/~dregis/DR/coaching.html is a good website with lots of information on all aspects of chess (for players rated about 1200 - 1800)
17 ( +1 | -1 ) Everything you needhere's the website where you can find tons of chess related links. Recommended !
33 ( +1 | -1 ) www.chesscafe.comI want to second mbeaver's recommendation of www.chesscafe.com. Outstanding site with weekly updates to various columns. A great beginners column called "Novice Nook", a curmudgeonly column be Bruce Pandolfini, interviews with the chess elite, etc., etc. If you haven't checked it out, I recommend you do so> (No, I'm not associated with the site, just a fan!).
36 ( +1 | -1 ) http://chess.delorie.comA chess engine to play against if you want to practice finding refutations to early middle game theory deviations. The computer usually goes out of book early and it's quite sharp tactically.
To sum up: good for practicing refutations of "mistakes" and for practicing defending against combinations. And quite hard to beat if you don't think for a while for each move..
