My Coach on the Radio
While I learned how to play chess as a young kid, much of my success can be directly attributed to the coaching of FM Alex Betaneli, who taught me in classes, private lessons and camps from 6th grade through 12th grade. In that time I improved from 1000 to 2100 rating and I am not even Alex's most accomplished student!
