Mayjaz Pirs Site http://www.schachschule-pirs.com/
For those of you who do not know Matjaz is a Correspondence GM and has been the German’s Chess Federation’s Performance Development Director, help numerous players towards achieving individual and team success. His own website has been around for a while but when a significant upgrade at the start of 2018. Lots of little nuggets of information here!
Niko Sarakenidis Site. http://chessnewsgr.blogspot.co.uk/
I had been aware of Niko for some time – he contributed to the Engine section of GM Aagaard's book “Thinking outside the box”. This is his personal blog and has a lot of interesting content for the CC player. Niko has also been active recently in defending CC against the always provocative, usually ill-informed and misjudged Nigel Short’s rather unpleasant comments about CC (who, for his sake, I hope never meets a radical, religious, female CC player “down a dark alley”!)
There is some gold for the aspiring player but you need to go back through his posts and use a translator at times!
ICCF World Zone Site https://iccfworldzone.com/
The New ICCF World Zone came into being in January 2018 via the Merger of the NAPZ and South American zones. It has a snazzy new website well worth a look, although some of its claims (The best place in ICCF to practice correspondence chess) are clearly incorrect!
