Most top chess coaches charge $20 to $60 . Not everyone can afford to hire a
chess coarch. And finding a coach that actually helps you or has a spot on his
schedule is another barrier that is sometimes hard to over come.
For over 40+ years I have taught chess in person and online. For the past few
years I have been one of the top chess teachers/coaches on the ICC under the
name Curmudgeon. My waiting list is fairly long. I would love to teach all that
come to me but there are only so many hours in the week. So I decided to
create a website where it would be as close to someone having a chess coach
as could be and at a price where everyone could afford.
Not only will you be able to work on the same positions I have worked with my
students over the years, but you can also ask me chess questions! Ask me
about a particular position that is giving you trouble. Ask about how to study
openings. If it is chess related, ask away!
ChessThinker.com is not only for beginning chess players learning how to
mate, but more advanced players as well. For example: If you have trouble in
knight endings then come to ChessThinker.com and work on the Knight
Ending set. Need work on Rook endings? Then there is a set for that. What
ever chess weakness you have, we have got you covered.
We have 12 sets. Each set has 100 positions. At chess tactics sites you get a
position and if you figure out the 1st move, you get credit. But what good is
being a piece or pawn up if you can not win it against a strong player? You
need to work on your technique while on the clock. The only place to do that
is at ChessThinker.com
Once you select the set you want to work on, you get 30 minutes on the clock
while your opponent gets 10. You MUST checkmate your opponent or you do
not get credit. It is that simple. This is by far the best way to improve your
technique. By the way, your opponent is VERY good at getting stalemates! So
be very careful!
