Remote Chess Academy is growing constantly, and thus we are engaging new people into our Team. Currently we are inviting new Chess Assistants. Check out the details here: LINK

Recently there was “a sportsman’s day” in Russia. I was invited to give a simul in the central park of the city.


The most talented young players were given a chance to test their skills against a Grandmaster. I played a few interesting games that I’d like to share with you today.

NOTE: I’m playing White in all of these games.
