Hi everyone! My name is Lucas Ranaldi and I’m a FIDE Master from Norway. My FIDE rating is currently around 2350 and I have one IM norm. I have many years of coaching experience on different levels, everywhere from beginner to expert level. The last couple of years I have been working with many of Norway’s most talented junior players and helped them improve drastically. I also worked as a full-time chess coach in Sydney from July-December 2019.

Some of my best performances are:

  • 2nd in Kesarovski-Stanchev Memorial 2018
  • 2nd in the Norwegian Junior Championship 2017
  • 3rd in the Norwegian Blitz Championship 2019
  • 17th in the U18 World Youth Championship 2017
  • Norwegian Team Champion multiple times
  • Several times medal winner in the Norwegian Youth Championship

I structure my lessons in a way that suits your specific needs as a chess player. We will figure out which parts of the game you are struggling with and work towards improving them over time. I’m generous with my time outside coaching hours and I always try to be available for my students. So if you have any questions during tournaments or at any other time you are of course welcome to contact me!

I offer lessons in English and Norwegian.

Hourly rate: NOK 500 (approximately USD 50)
