Chess- busy summer!

Chess- busy summer!

My student of few months, Gabriel Mrowka, sporting his impressive trophy for the 2nd place in the U900 section of the Bryant Park tournament- Gabriel’s score was an undefeated 3.5/4 in his second tournament ever! Congratulations! Looking forward to more tournaments, classes and chess camps this summer.

Supernationals tournament coming soon!

Tournament chess is very exciting- whether following super-grandmaster events like the ongoing Fide Candidates¬†¬†tournament in London, or playing in one when you are a kid! The big scholastic chess tournament- “Supernationals”, will take place in Nashville, TN on the weekend of April 5th-7th and students from all over the country will be competing on 64 squares. Last week, I was invited to conduct a training session with the chess team at the Robert F. Wagner Secondary School in Long Island City, Queens and it was a very productive time; we plan to meet again with the team before they leave. Good luck to all Wagner Chess Club players!

After-school chess classes at Bird River Studios in Williamsburg starting in April!

I’m starting new group classes at the beautiful Bird River Studios facility in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They have a lot of cool classes including studio art, theater and acting, creative writing and more, and now it’s time to start a chess club! Currently we’re taking reservations for after-school classes on Mondays and Wednesdays, beginning at 3:30. We’ll start from the basics, showing the kids all the fun they can have checkmating the king, and will move on forward- our ambition is to have a new cool neighborhood chess club for kids and adults alike with regular tournaments and lectures. Come join us! Please click on this link which will take you to the Bird River’s website where you can make the reservation.Image
