Royal Rook Chess Coach with 20+ years of chess overall experience in the Greater Houston TX area.

About the lesson

My methodology is quite simple and straight forward, that is teach "Dominate and Control the Center of the chess board! From this basic understanding we then move forward with Strategical, Positional and Tactical play. Thus taking multiple approaches to learning the deep "nuggets" of the royal game.
