    hi how do you coach online?

  • 3 years ago


    I can't, because of my work, to have live ON LIVE classes.What about playing online games with comments and teaching during the game?How match it would cost?

    I do not want to just play a master, it would be the same as playing an engine for me.I want to have help in understanding the real situations that would arrive from these games (that would be in the openings I am studying)...Ocasionally I would be available for weekend classes, could it be possible?How much per online game?

    I've had problems with 4 previous coachs that agreed with the online game but did not give advice during it.The experience was just the one of playing an engine ...
