(Category:Amateur chess players is the exception, since its members are notable for other things but have also attracted attention as chess amateurs. Amateur chess players are not categorized by nationality or put in any other chess players subcategory.)
- All players will be found in the appropriate subcategory of chess players by nationality.
- Players who have been awarded the Grandmaster title will be found in the subcategory chess grandmasters. (The Grandmaster title was first awarded by FIDE in 1950 so most strong players from the middle of the 20th century on will be in the chess grandmaster category.)
