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.

Next Meeting on September 7th.
No meeting on Labor Day

The intermediate/advanced group meets at the Earl of Sandwich. We have finished the section on base forcing moves and checkmate patterns. We're in the middle of learning about advanced tactics using brute force calculation.

Beginning group meets on September 7th.
No meeting on Labor Day

We will begin examining rook and pawn endings. We will also begin a section that explores the weapons of chess.

Please note the flyer for a tournament in September, only for players rated below 1000.

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.
