I recently wrote “50 Poison Pieces” a chess puzzle book for beginners who are learning basic chess tactics. Readers have to figure out why capturing an unprotected piece is a mistake. The book is endorsed by FIDE Master Eric Schiller, Berkeley Chess School, and Alan Kirshner.
Here’s a picture of me promoting the book at Super Nationals in Nashville, TN in April 2017! Over 5,500 kids played in this tournament!Buy the book!
I am an independent and respected chess teacher and a speaker, located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Chess is more than a game for me. Chess teaches people how to think, a crucial skill needed to succeed in life.Buy the book!
My mom, a casual chess player, taught the game to me when I was eight years old. Back then chess was just another fun board game, like Monopoly or checkers, so I didn’t take chess that seriously. When I was 15 years old, I played in my first USCF (United States Chess Federation) tournament and my first rating was 689. After playing in many tournaments and studying tactics over the years, I am currently rated as a class A player, rated between 1800-2000. I am also proud to be ranked on and off the top 100 ranking list of females in the USA for over ten years.Visit my chess lesson website!
