Road to Grandmaster is a blog detailing the efforts of Will Taylor, a 24-year old British amateur chess player, to become a chess Grandmaster. He has progressed from a weak ‘Class A’ player at the start of the project (about 1850 strength) to an ‘Expert’ with a FIDE rating of 2007. £200 has been bet with William Hill at 25:1 on him achieving this goal, which would result in a £5000 payout if he is successful. The site’s first post and ‘mission statement’ can be read here.
