Teaching chess since 1996

We had our Groundhog Open  tonight with six players. Prizes went to Lance Ngo for  first place winner, and Austin Tsai and Shourya Sethi for second.

We had no upsets this week.

Register for February tournaments here.

In-person Novice Class: Sunday, February 18
We meet on Sundays from 3:30 - 5:00 PM

  • We have a conference room at Fishers of Men church to use. They are on the corner of  Austin Parkway and Grant’s Lake Blvd in Sugar Land (next door to the post office and across the street from the First Colony library).
  • This class is for 3rd graders through adult.
  • The fee is $20/lesson.
  • You must reply in advance if you want to attend the class.

  • We are studying the weapons of chess and how to win in a position where there aren’t any tactics. This Sunday’s lesson will teach how to use knights and rooks for an advantage, how to open a file,  how to use the minor exchange, and tips on exchanging pieces.

In-person Beginners Class: Starts next week

This looks like it will be a small class with lots of attention for each student. There are three students currently signed up — I would like to have one more so that there is an even number to practice with each other.
