Coach for the Royal Guards Chess Club and the Imperial Guardians Chess Club, which meet at public libraries. Recently became a professional coach for several private and public schools. Continuing to find it very satisfying to train new/beginning and intermediate students of this magnificent game. Our first motto is, "Excellence is more than skill." Our second motto is, "Honor is our reputation."
So, sportsmanship and respecting diversity are essential to us, always.

   Nov-27-17 Hector vs Barbero, 1991 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: I appreciate the way the Vukovic Mate is brought down against Hector in a sideways orientation and that two Bishops were needed as helpers. Added this game to my collection of Vukovic Mates today, as well. Students will love this actual game example!
   Nov-26-17 Yanofsky vs J Tornerup, 1947
ChessCoachClark: The position after 18. d4 has been given as a mate in 4 puzzle in several publications. It leads to a Back Rank Mate. However, the reference given is sometimes "Yanowsky vs Toriran, Canada 1953." Note that the game here at CG uses "Janofsky." Just found that Edward Winter ...
   Nov-17-17 P Van der Sterren vs Ljubojevic, 1987
ChessCoachClark: The ending of this game was very interesting to me. The Hook Mate pattern is neither at the edge nor at the corner. Quite a nice addition to my collection of Hook Mate games.
   Nov-13-17 Portisch vs M Damjanovic, 1968 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: Excellent game for showing the Battering Ram and (Royal) Skewer tactics to students.
   Nov-12-17 McDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834
ChessCoachClark: <morphynoman2: In "Kasparov Teaches Chess", the former World Champion says about the final position of this game: "This position, where the small pawns were victorious over the enemy, was so surprising that it seemed like a fairy tale and I was unable to live without ...
   Aug-10-17 Mamedyarov vs Lu Shanglei, 2016 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: <jffun1958: 4-mate: 24. Nb5+ Bxc6 (only move) 25. Na7+ Kc7 (only move) 26. exf5 e5 27. Bxe5#> Position after 25. Na7+ is as follows: [DIAGRAM] The given line from jffun1958 just doesn't work, as 25. ... Kc7 is ineligible-- the White Knight at e6 attacks c7. Also, ...
   Jul-11-17 Nunn vs Seirawan, 1982 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: After 29. ... Ke8, 30. Qxh8+, Rybka 4 x64 suggests 30. ... Qf8 as the best move for Black, which isn't saying much since White should have a mate in 24 with perfect play. Black is nominally better-- one less Pawn down than losing the second Rook, also. The next best move is ...
   Jun-03-17 Efimov vs Bronstein, 1941
ChessCoachClark: Looked at this game this morning and used it in our Royal Guards Chess Club meeting this afternoon! The last move is an excellent demonstration of an In-Between Move. Also, the continuation with the Knight being captured (13. Nxe2 Qe1#) is a Mighty Queen Mate which is both ...
   Mar-03-16 B Perfors vs F van Seters, 1955
ChessCoachClark: The ending of this game is a parallel to Bernstein vs Capablanca (Moscow, 1914), 29 moves, 0-1. See position #1 of the Chess Training Pocket Book by Lev Alburt for continuations and other analysis. At least one very modern game also had this sort of ending.
   Jan-03-16 E J Diemer vs Illig, 1954
ChessCoachClark: Laszlo Polgar included this game in CHESS: 5334 Problems, Combinations and Games as Game #4587 on page 843.
