I’ve been playing rated chess since 1990, and have been a strong A player since 2011.
I’ve spent the last three years coaching the Andrew high school chess team.. the year before I took over they finished 89th out of 130+ teams. In the following years they finished 32nd and then consecutive school high finishes of 21st and 11th. The 11th place finish was the best finish by a school from their area in 8 years.
My best two students have gone from unrated to 1774 and 1845 in 26 months.
I coach teaching simple openings that seek to limit the attack of opponents and gradually build attacks on your own. I am the coach to teach you how to win big in the middle game. I am a big believer that if you are aware of your opponents main idea and cut off that main idea, opponents under 2000 will give you clear opportunities before the end game.
