International Chess Master, Content Creator, and New York Times Best Selling Author
Levy Rozman, aka GothamChess, is an International Chess Master, content creator, and New York Times Best Selling author.
If you've ever watched chess-related content on YouTube, then there is a good chance you have seen Levy's informative yet entertaining videos covering a variety of chess related topics. GothamChess is the biggest chess channel on YouTube with over 4.5 million subscribers and 100 million monthly views.
Levy's career started as a scholastic chess teacher in New York City, where he coached hundreds of students across different ages and levels from 2014 until 2020. When the world shut down in the early days of the pandemic in 2020, Levy poured his passion for chess into educational YouTube videos. Since then, he has made a video about chess nearly every day of his life--for 4 years and counting.
Levy also released his highly anticipated book in 2023, "How to Win at Chess: The Ultimate Guide for Beginners and Beyond". The goal of the book was to modernize the chess learning experience for beginners, and it was well received: the book hit Top 20 on Amazon Books and dropped as a New York Times Bestseller.
Levy's goal is to make chess as accessible and entertaining as possible for a global audience. Beyond YouTube, he has a keen interest in developing a scholarship nonprofit, brick and mortar international chess clubs, and high quality productions of major chess events.
