Teaching chess since 2004

Earl of Sandwich 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 July 27th.

Our summer programs continues next week for the intermediate/advanced group at the Earl of Sandwich. We have finished the section on base forcing moves, and next week looks at checkmate patterns against the g7 square.

Beginning group meets on July 27th.

We have finished learning about closed game principles. This week, we begin learning a specific defense.

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 improving their chess.
