Update: Enough people have now confirmed their attendance. The event will go ahead as planned. If you haven’t told me you’re coming, I’d still like to know. That will help us know how many chairs and tables we’ll need and assist Lorin’s planning.
The idea is that we’ll have around an hour of coaching, followed by a simul, with a book prize for the best simul.
Lorin D’Costa is an International Chess Master and a full time chess teacher in London. He is an ECF accredited coach, teaching individuals (many of whom have gone on to win national titles and represent England) as well as at the world and European youth championships with the best young English chess talent. Lorin is currently FIDE rated 2430 (and ECF graded 228), putting him comfortably in the top 50 amongst English players. He is currently coaching at a number of London schools, and is the author of two chess books and numerous instructional videos.
Since we need to cover Lorin’s costs, this event can only go ahead if we have sufficient numbers attending. There will be a minimum fee of £5 per head.
