Next Tournament

Online Chess Match!

Hello All! I hope everyone has been having a great summer. I was recently in the Buffalo area doing a chess camp at Nardin Academy. It was great to be back in the area with two National Chess Masters who were in Buffalo for the first time. I've recently been working with an online interface called "Shindig Chess". allows you to play online against opponents using video chat to make you feel just like you are sitting across from them. The site is built up for up to three people to be in the same room, which allows tournament directors to monitor the games and coaches to give shared lessons. Now coaches and players around the world can teach and compete in a friendly environment that is completely free! Our goal is to organize a nationwide online tournament. I coach chess in NYC and have over 500 students in the NYC Public schools. It would be great to get a friendly "training match" session going before major Scholastic Tournaments, Such as NYS Scholastics and of course the Nationals. Please let me know if you are interested in arranging a demo game with me, using the interface. It will consist of a game where we will be able to see each other, and then we will go over the game after wards. I am available any time. All you need is a web cam and a computer with internet access and it will work! I accept all challenges and it's a lot of fun. If interested, either comment on this post with your name, e-mail and time available or send an e-mail to Thanks! I hope to get some great training matches going!
