July Camp Three, Redmond

Summer Camps are conducted online for your safety using Zoom and ChessKid.

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 positions with White and Black’s Bishop fianchetto and related counterattacks, middle game and tactics.

  • Carlsen ideas in English
  • Origins of the Grunfeld Defense
  • Black fights for the initiative
  • Pawn sacrifices
  • The general theory of the Grunfeld
  • Middle game structures arising from the Grunfeld
  • World Champions and other famous players who played the Grunfeld
  • The most brilliant games in the Grunfeld
  • GM Yermolinsky personal history with the Grunfeld

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 summer camp has GM Alex Yermolinsky in attendance!
