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.

   Jul-25-22 E Matsuura vs V Carneiro, 2017 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: After 75. ... Qf4, the position is identical to Diagram #4 in Combinations the Heart of Chess, by Irving Chernev. That diagram is from the game Augustin vs. Bongrantz, which seems to be unavailable. This game is modern and easily analyzed in comparison with Chernev's ...
   Jun-07-22 Fischer vs J Warren, 1964 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: I found it interesting that Warren played against Fischer in another simul game, in a suburb of Chicago and also earned a draw then, as well. Once is luck, maybe. Twice ...
   May-02-22 Hertneck vs R Ris, 2007 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: Found this game in one of fredthebear's collections while searching for stalemates and almost couldn't stop laughing when I saw that Black tried FIVE times to force a stalemate: 57B, 59B, 61B, 62B and finally with 63B, where White took the Rook and sealed the stalemate. ...
   Apr-17-22 P Ware vs J S Ryan, 1880
ChessCoachClark: This game is prime teaching material for looking ahead, rather than 'automatically' Promoting. You get an instant stalemate by Promotion, but get an instant checkmate by Under-Promoting to a Knight! What a powerful demonstration they provided here, both the players and ...
   Apr-01-22 J Eising vs L Schneider, 1979 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: Indeed, the mating pattern is notable, as few Pawn mates are extant. However, I slightly disagree that the Black Queen is superfluous in the final position. The Black Queen is crucial in the mating process, which is far more important for a chess learner and is inclusive of ...
   Feb-25-22 Nimzowitsch vs Ryckhoff, 1910
ChessCoachClark: My favorite example of the Double-Check mate (even though Black did not play the best plies) and the impetus for my project, Game Collection: Double Check Mate Examples . This game is a older treasure to be memorized.
   Jan-27-22 A Kalaiyalahan vs D Jameson, 2017
ChessCoachClark: Nice to see a recent example of the Opera Mate. My students will love it because it has a different flavor of Queen sacrifice as well.
   Nov-24-21 N Pert vs F Waldhausen Gordon, 2021 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: Fabulous ending-- En Passant Mate! Wow!!!
   Nov-10-21 B Amin vs I H Labib, 2001 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: Another inaccurate pun, based on inaccurate pronunciation. Amin here is a name based on the Arabic word for faithful, trustworthy, honest, reliable, etc. It has a long second syllable. The Arabic word used to close out a prayer could have the same spelling in English, but it
   Oct-26-21 C Teichmann vs H De Carbonnel, 1960 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: The partial score of this game has been included and discusssed with relation to similar games on pages 10-12 of Castling to Win! by Robert Timmer. N Minev vs J Fichtl, 1958 is the key game for the discussion. An interesting read, for sure.
