This is what a chess tournament reflects. The passion that unites a certain group of people where they demonstrate their skills on the board.

Many with enough level to reach the final, others experiencing their first time, but everyone needs to know where could we find the tournaments.

What is a chess base database?

A chess base database is composed of files with which people are able to save and store information in order to create chess games. With the help of the viewers, players are able to see the games, save and write comments about it. We will focus on two files,  namely:

Proven: What are the chess engines and how to use them?

The chess engines are autonomous programs that complement the study; practice and training of chess. These engines use communication languages that allow you to interconnect with other programs. I can quote an example: Chessbase (Chess program) with Fritz (Chess engine); those programs interact and can be used to complement each other.

There are different Chess engines on the market that help to study complex positions in a deeper way and they give valuations regarding the positions of the algorithms used for each one of the programmers; some of them give priority to the information.

Alberto is giving me step by step guidance on how to progress in chess. Because of his strong repertoire and game analysis support I was able to get an initial rating of 2148. My sincere thanks to my mentor Alberto who constantly supports me in my game analysis and helps me strengthen my game before going to the next rounds. He has a huge database of knowledge that caters to the beginner up to the master level. Thank you, Alberto, for being there throughout my chess journey.

Vyom and Omya have been learning from Coach Alberto since they were USCF rated ~1500 & ~1000 respectively. Coach Alberto played a critical role in understanding Vyom’s weaknesses and helped him overcome them. He has been an exceptional chess coach with a lot of patience with my kids. He played an instrumental role in teaching them different openings for both black and white. He is always available to help/guide them. He helps to analyze the games and suggest good moves. Our kids are very comfortable with the teaching style of Coach Alberto. He being an active player also helps as he shares what he learns from his games and experience as well.
