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.

   Sep-26-19 L Shamkovich vs Alburt, 1983 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: I was initially surprised by 28. ... Bxf4, which makes a Skewer attack on both White Rooks. My surprise changed to a smile as I watched Shamkovich turn it to his advantage beautifully with a mating threat by the Queen and Rook battery on the h-file which brought one Rook out
   Jul-09-19 M Muzychuk vs Yifan Hou, 2016 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: The wonderful Yifan Hou has a pending mate in a variation of the Cradle Mate, but with a Pawn blocking the escape square and the Bishop supporting the victorious Queen. Fabulous!
   Jul-09-19 M Rivas Pastor vs Huebner, 1985 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: This game is only the third time I have seen post a game that uses the Railroad Mate sequence. I came upon a reference to it a few years ago and it fascinates even my younger chess students with its zig-zag approach to a short King Hunt between the 'railroad ...
   Jul-08-19 Ivan Buljovcic vs Maric, 1967 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: The Pawn protection for the White Rook keeps the Black King in a box-- out of the action in the endgame. Wonderful!
   Jun-27-19 Doroshkievich vs Shabalov, 1990 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: <The17thPawn> Wikipedia claims the ST TNG episode was among the best of Star Trek, period. (Memorable to me, but not my favorite. More realistic first contact scenario-- referents between aliens are likely to be problematic. I have a heavy background in linguistics.) ...
   Jun-19-19 Chandler vs A Fernandes, 2001 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: One of the best examples of an X-Ray attack that I've seen in a quite a while! An excellent demonstration for my students, definitely.

   Nov-22-18 M Mosadeghpour vs V Sanal, 2015
