I have been a Professional Chess Coach since 1984, Teaching Beginners and Intermediate players. I can help you get to the Expert level and then refer you to a Master for further instruction. Please message me if you are interested in live online lessons. I am a Four Time Tempe Open Champion (Tempe, AZ), and have also managed to win first place in more than 65 other chess tournaments; which is not really as impressive as it may sound since I have played over 1000 rated chess tournaments. You can catch up with some of my lessons on:


I am a Gospel Minister, and I use my chess coaching to financially support the ministry.

   Jun-30-21 S Barrientos Chavarriaga vs Kudrin, 2009
KingsBischop: It is already hanging after 21 ...Qc7... and every single subsequent move... Why does the game end on Move 25?
   Jun-29-21 S Barrientos Chavarriaga vs G Antal, 2003
KingsBischop: Was this a time loss? It looks dead equal.
   Jul-22-20 A Krapivin vs I Lysyj, 2006
KingsBischop: how could it be a time loss if Black made the last move? This is very strange indeed.
   Jun-23-20 Golod vs D Kopec, 2006
KingsBischop: Was this a win on time? It looks to me that neither player ever had any advantage anywhere in the game.
   Mar-03-20 G Andruet vs Kouatly, 1988
KingsBischop: How is this a win for Black? And how is it listed as a notable game on Kouatly's page?
   Oct-31-19 Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1889 (replies)
KingsBischop: Does anyone know why this game was even played given that Steinitz had already reached the necessary 10 wins?
   Aug-20-19 V G Kostic vs Robatsch, 1990
KingsBischop: If he lost on time, that would mean Rc2 was not actually played. (And, by the way, it seems Rc1+ is the better choice)
   Jul-26-15 C Golmayo vs Loyd, 1867 (replies)
KingsBischop: 29... Ra1?? is a complete blunder for Black, allowing White to equalize with 30.Rxa1 Qg5+ 31.Kb1 Nd2+ 32. Kc1 Nb3+ 33. Kb1; Because 33... Qxc1+ is another very bad move that leads to White's advantage after 34.Ka2 Qxc2 35.Qc6 Qxc6 36.Ne7+ Kh7 37.Nxc6 Nxa1 38.Rxa1 Ra8+ 39.Kb1 ...
   Mar-20-15 Uhlmann vs Jansa, 1975 (replies)
KingsBischop: For that matter, why didn't White play Rf7+ on move 102, forking and winning the Bishop?
