    Dear NM Geordie,

    I amManoj C Raman, the Founder Chairman and Managing Director[ CMD]

    of the Houston Chess Academy which is a small chess academy just opend in  Stafford near Houston Texas on 19 th july 2015..

    Stafford  is 15 miles far from Houston down town. I want to associate with few GM s ,IM s ,FM s and other higher rated chess players who are belong to different chess federation  and can associate with us for the closed ,semi closed,open chess tournaments, chess training for IM s FM s  advanced ,Intermediate  as well as Bignners in Chess.

    In  short future, we want  to start conducting  One GM and one IM tournament  and one Fide /USCF rated tournamets every month .And conduct continnuous training programs for all levels of chess players. I think as a leading chess coach, you may have more opennings to conduct chess lessons[online /private] to all levels of students  through our academy in future...  if at all you are interested.

    Please send me your views on this proposal .My email ID is hicausa1@gmail.com

    To anyone looking for a new coach Geordie is the real deal folks. I've been his student for a few months now and already I've been able to beat family members that I've been loosing to for years! Maybe not a huge accomplishment for most people but really huge for me personally. Really polite, professional, and genuinely just a really nice guy. Can't wait to see where he takes me with my chess playing!
