Teaching chess since 2004

Fall, 2017

The novice/intermediate group meets on Sunday nights from 5:30-7:00. You must register in advance to attend.

Our location has temporarily changed. Contact fbcc@fortbendchessclub.com to get details about the meeting location while we wait for IdeaLab to reopen.

Our topic varies week-to-week. We especially emphasize how to enjoy chess and win games. A typical week practices some tactics, reviews an ending, learns a topic, and plays chess games.

The fee is $10/lesson. Register for four lessons in advance. You pay only for the lessons that you attend.

December 10 - For our last meeting of the year, I will play a game against everyone at the same time. And I'll give tips along the way because I'd be very happy if everybody beat me.

 

Coach Chuck Hinkle has been teaching chess since 2004 and has a 1600-1700 USCF rating.
