Hey Courtyard Chess!

As the new school year kicks off for me and approaches for many of you, I'm ramping up my efforts to bring in additional tutors. This way, we can ensure there's ample availability for lessons during the busy weekdays. Keep the chess games going and stay committed to your puzzle practice!


Just returned from the national tournament in Washington D.C!  It was an amazing experience and I ended up playing a National Master in the final round!  My hard work paid off and I received the first place medal for my division.  Keep up with your puzzles and studying!
Thanks :) ✌️
