Hello and thanks for taking a minute to read this.

 

My name is Jure Zorko and I come from Slovenia, Middle Europe. I am an International Master with a current FIDE rating of 2457. I have been playing and studying chess for about 20 years, regularly participating in European and World youth championships. Currently I am a full time chess coach, while still being an active player.


I started thinking about becoming a chess coach after I saw how much I could improve my own chess in adulthood and discover mistakes coaches could not see in my youth. 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 Championship

- Shared 9th place at World Chess Championship U12, Spain, 2000 

 - Silver medal on 1st board at Youth Chess Olympiad U16, Ukraine, 2000

 - National Rapid Champion (2010) and National Blitz Champion, 2014, 2015

- Played for Slovenian National team, 2010

- Coached multiple National Champions in youth categories. I am regularly working as a coach in Slovenian chess clubs and online for the last 7 years

- Worked as a coach at several European and World Youth Chess Championships

- I got invited to work as a coach in Abu Dhabi Chess Club, 2014-2015

- I achieved the official title of FIDE trainer, 2015
