Teaching chess since 2004
|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 August 3rd.
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 f7 square.
Beginning group meets on August 3rd.
Week 2 on the Sicilian Dragon defense. This is an aggressive defensive that lets Black counter-attack White.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org if someone asks you about improving their chess.
|The Fort Bend Chess Club recommends The Chess House (chesshouse.com) for chess equipment. I've gotten boards, books, and clocks from them since the mid 1970s.|
