Christmas GrandMaster Camp

All camps are conducted online for your safety.

GM Alex Yermolinsky, 2-time US Champion, in attendance

Grandmaster Alex Yermolinsky is a great chess player, established online chess commentator, analyst and well-known chess coach who worked in many scholastic chess camps around the country. He brings years of teaching experience and knowledge.

Each camp features tournament games immediately analyzed by a chess master. Other activities include solving fun chess puzzles, learning cool openings, solving tricky tactics, mastering fundamental endgames, and playing casual games between students! We may separate into a second group with its own coach if the skill levels and ages require it and there are enough students.

The camp will focus on the modern attacking game:

  • Building up your attacks
  • Creating space for your attacking pieces
  • Maintaining stronghold in the center
  • H- and G-pawn push
  • Rook lift
  • The English Attack against the Sicilian – the pawn storm
  • The Isolated Queen Pawn – attacking with the pieces

All camps are attended or conducted by International Master Georgi Orlov, 1994 US Open Champion, USCF Rated 2540, with a 4-Year Chess Education degree from Moscow, Russia. This camp has GM Alex Yermolinsky in attendance!

Dates: Flexible!

This Christmas Break Camp is a four-day series, Monday – Thursday.
