Next Master Class is Sunday, August 20! Hoping to see old and new friends there! Let us know if you are participating. Send an email to Jen, jen@orlandochesshouse.com to confirm.




The remaining Beginner Classes that were originally planned for July are cancelled.


For those who are interested to continue with chess, we can help you find the best private coach for your kids, maybe someone you already met at the classes. Send an email to Jen, and I will create the connection.



Martin wins World Open U2200


Yes, Martin is the tie break winner of the U2200 section in Philadelphia with 7.5 out of 9 points!


This is one of the toughest tournaments in US with about 250 participants in each section, double rounds and up to 10 hours of competitive chess daily, plus - everyone seems to be underrated. Great achievement by Martin! Congratulations! Final Standings ...
