” Dan was my first Coach when I started playing chess in 5th grade. He really played an instrumental part in fostering my interest and eventual passion for the game. Throughout middle school, Dan was not my coach at school, but still provided coaching at the tournaments which he ran in Cherry Hill. Because of Dans instruction, I went on to become a top chess player in southern NJ, captaining my high school team where I was once again coached by Dan. Not only is Dan a great coach who understands the game well, but he is an exceptional communicator. Additionally, Dan is a great person. I would strongly recommend lessons with Dan! “
