Sample of My Play

Here are some recent 5 minute/player games I played against very skilled 2500, 2300, and 2200 rated players, which are master level or higher.
These are the skills I learned from my years of learning from Grandmasters. These are the same skills I can teach your child. They are also the skills I taught my 15 National Champions in my 28 years of teaching.
