Teaching chess since 2004

Earl of Sandwich The Intermediate/Advanced section of the Fort Bend Chess Club normally meets at the Earl of Sandwich at 1930 Highway 6 in Sugar Land on Sunday nights, from 6:00-8:00.

We appreciate that this restaurant is giving us space to meet in, and we encourage club members to order your dinner there on Sunday nights.

The intermediate/advanced group meets at the Earl of Sandwich. We have finished the section on the importance of brute force calculations. We will begin learning about advanced tactics and surprising moves.

We continue learning about rook and pawn endings and exploring the weapons of chess.

Individual Chess Lessons

I’ve been getting notes and questions from people who know students who want to play chess. Our beginning group is full (maybe even more than full). But one of our coaches is offering lessons for individuals or groups. He’s been teaching chess in Barrington Place elementary for about five years and three Meyerland elementary schools for two years at the same time, and he has about a 1500 USCF rating. Contact us at chuckbo@hinkles.us if someone asks you about seriously improving their chess.
