Dear Chessfriend,

My name is Gabor Balazs. I am a Hungarian FM, fighting for the IM title. My top ELO is 2435. I have been playing chess for 22 years. I won the Hungarian Rapid Championship twice (U16 and U18).

I love teaching chess and it is very important for me that both of us enjoy the lessons beside the hard work. I have pupils almost at all the levels from beginners to advanced players (500-2200 ELO).

You can see a lot of feedback from my coaching services here:

Why should you choose me?

- I can give you a FREE access to an extremely useful supplementary training program (with more than 100 topics in 3 levels, tactical puzzles, practice tests, fantastic explanations) as long as you are my student!

- I have a widespread opening repertoire (a lot of openings are analysed by strong Grand Masters).

- I have a lot of chess books in PDF and Chessbase format, so I can teach you the main middlegame plans, the art of calculations, famous chess games and the endgame theory.

- I have elaborated, personalized training plans, which help you to improve your skills effectively.

- I help you analyse your games deeply, so you can realise your mistakes and learn from them.

- I am a really flexible and hard-working person, the quality of my work is really important for me.

- My lessons are on Skype or Zoom with webcam and screen sharing. (Skype ID: balazs.gabor91 ; Zoom ID:

- I give homeworks, so you can also practice alone and I check your solutions in my free time.

- I answer your messages within 1 day, I am not the type of coach who disappears for a week after the lesson.

My hourly rate is 65 USD/hour (my preparation for the lessons, answering your questions in my free time and fixing your homeworks are also included in the price). Package discounts are available!

Please, contact me (, if you are interested in working with me, I am looking forward to your message. happy.png
