    Coach, now you should update your page, Kayden Troff is a GM!!! You surely detect the talent and get them to a different level! I´m loving all your videos. 

    I wish I´d be able to have some online lessons with you, as I am from Argentina.

    Hi GM Melikset

    What are the requirements in order to be your online student? How is the procedure for studying on line? I am not considered myself a begginer, but i would like to improve my openings, planning and knowing the main ideas of every opening. 

    Thanks for your time.

    Sir I would love to be you online student. I've been playing chess since 5th grade. I'm in 9th grade now and I kinda forgot some openings and I need to improve my endgame problem solving. Thank you for your response.

  • 14 months ago


    I have had 10 lessons from this grandmaster. let me tell you, the first time he introduced me to several openings such as the grunfeld and KID. he helped me build a solid opening repertoire and increased my tactical awareness. thanks to him i got from 1200 to 2000 in less than a year. this guy is worth your money and i can tell you from experience. though it may cost a bit, it sure beats studying for 10,000 hours. thanks for helping me in my chess career

    Six years ago I first got on the internet and the truth is, I gave it one hundred percent when I was playing. My rating on FRITZ was well above 2000. I think that it peaked around 2300. I havent played since. I must be honest and say that when not giving one hundred percent, I am a weak player. Garry Kasparov offered to coach me at this time. He is a personal friend of mine. Please feel free to contact him, and he will be able to tell you exactly my level in chess. I am currently studying Russian and could speak it a little better in the past. I would like to be able to communicate in Russian, but I am not sure how to get cyrrillic type. Thanks very much. I think that if I can achieve CONSISTENCY, then I am a good player.... cheers.
