    Author of Chess Structures - a Grandmaster Guide, Quality Chess 2015. Visit http://chess-structures.com to learn more about it.   Interested in lessons? I am very interested in coaching young and promising players who are eager to learn. We can arrange face to face lessons in Minneapolis, or otherwise most of my lessons are conducted using Skype + ICC (or chess.com). This online system works very well. Just like my book, my teaching is based on very concrete information, clear-cut ideas and principles. Each lesson you will learn something very concrete and useful.

I keep the names of my students a secret (to...

That gave me the confidence to pursue a chess coaching career, where I helped many chess players around the world.   My highlights as a player and a coach:   - Multiple winner of medals at Youth National...
