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.

   Oct-24-20 S Sargissyan vs Read Samadov, 2018 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: The 'Outpost Queen' is a real cutie as well as the final tactic, which will be a contemporary demonstration to my students of a Double Attack which is not a Fork. I'm motivated to make a game collection of more such games, now. :-) Thanks CG! Be well, be safe everyone.
   Jun-26-20 A Zude vs L Sanchez Botella, 2014 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: The finish is a work of beauty! The Knight makes a Double Check Royal Fork to win this game in elegant style. Exceptional!
   May-27-20 A Fomez vs M Lanzani, 1988 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: Yes, it is valid to criticize the quality of this game. Stockfish analysis makes that plain and FSR points out that '30. Qe2# is quicker.' Yet, it does belong in this database as a trivia piece-- castling mates are rare enough. Students can be motivated by the point of ...
   May-25-20 Y Kambrath vs M Scherer, 2013 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: A fascinating play in this game is the capture double check by a PAWN at 14. exd7++. Is this rare or what?? Beautiful, no doubt, though!
   May-15-20 Z Franco Ocampos vs Guimard, 1980 (replies)
ChessCoachClark: White was blindly greedy with 25. Qxe2, so Black clobbers him with 25. ... Ng3+ for a Discovery En Garde with check and another En Garde to boot! Stockfish shows a mate in eight, so what else could White do now but resign??
   Apr-29-20 Schlechter vs Stubenrauch, 1901
ChessCoachClark: Excellent point by <Nomen Nescio>. This contest is game #5018 on page 970 in the tome CHESS: 5334 Problems, Combinations and Games by Laszlo Polgar, but he, like Schlechter, also misses this earlier maneuvering point.
   Apr-29-20 Yates vs V Marin y Llovet, 1930
ChessCoachClark: This game (with the alternate score) appears as game #5017 on page 970 in the tome CHESS: 5334 Problems, Combinations and Games by Laszlo Polgar. Polgar shows a mate in four, but Stockfish 9 only gives it a +5.73 advantage.
   Apr-29-20 K Richter vs K Darga, 1950
ChessCoachClark: This game is #5015 on page 969 in the tome CHESS: 5334 Problems, Combinations and Games by Laszlo Polgar. 12. Bxh7! is the key/highlighted and diagrammed move in that book. Bxh7 or Qxh7 is the theme of that section. Also, Stockfish 9 analysis takes 12. Bxh7 as the best ...
   Apr-22-20 J Moeller vs H L Jonsson, 1901
ChessCoachClark: This game is an early and useful example of the Vukovic Mate. Note that an Arabian Mate results by the alternative 37. ... Kh8 38. Rh7#. Great for distinguishing between the two classical mate patterns. Thank you CG for adding this game to your database!!
   Mar-14-20 A Sabotic vs Andrey Voropaj, 1997
ChessCoachClark: Thank you ChessGames for adding this game to your database. This game ends with a Piling On tactic against a Bishop under an Absolute Pin. Exemplary demonstration for beginners and intermediates needing review in my chess classes.
