Titled Player
Diamond Member Coach

42 year old USCF National Master living in Denver, Colorado.  My style is Active Positional.  I build up my position and then strike with a killer tactic! 

My coaching style is to mainly review my student's games with them and to help them understand the key decision points from their games.  I do this by asking questions about their thought process so that we can compare notes on what we're seeing at the board and correct the student's thought process so that they can make better decisions in the future. 

Be sure to check out and subscribe to my substack newsletter, "Chess With Richard!" where I post periodically new content that you will be sure not to want to miss!
