Carlos PujolBurbank, California, Cuba
My name is Carlos Pujol and I am a Chess Master from Cuba, now with almost 10 years of experience teaching kids, beginners and coaching advanced players. Currently I'm in the top 5 rated players in Arizona, and working to improve. You can check it out in the links provided HEREand HERE.
You can visit the Facebook Page of "Chess 4 Real", Where I post everyday positions analyzed in detail. That's something totally different: Over there I do not talk about openings, nor tactics; is stuff that will help you to get better understanding about Real Chess strategy.
Also, I run this two chess websites, dedicated to chess training:
AjedrezDeEntrenamiento.com (El mismo sitio en español).
REGARDING TO MY SERVICES POSTED IN MY COACH PROFILE:
Those cheap prices are not designed to make me rich, just to make a decent living doing something I like, help people get better at chess. If you shop around, you will notice really high prices (some GMs, for example) and some not as high, but compared with my experience and chess strength, you will see low rated players charging the same or more for the same services I provide. You will reach the conclusion by yourself that I'm a smart investment. Your Choice.
