Quality Chess Academy 2020

February 13th, 2020 No comments

Quality Chess Academy takes place in a holiday resort on Crete, a sunny Mediterranean island. For a week, you get the chance to train daily with some of the best chess trainers in the world and get inspired to continue your work at home. It can be combined with playing the Cretan Chess Tour tournaments, before and/or after the training camp.

In November 2018 GM Jacob Aagaard and GM Boris Gelfand were the trainers. An amazing experience and a boost in chess performance, resulting in a participant to cross 2700 and securing an IM title for another.

Inspired by the overwhelmingly positive feedback for the November 2018 camp we decided to organise a camp for 8-14 May 2019. GM RB Ramesh joined Jacob as a trainer for a very successful camp for players of all levels,

In the titled group (IMs and GMs), we got some very impressive results; a championship, many second places, a GM title, +50-60 points up in a few cases, +30 in some others, with the biggest ELO gain +86 points for that group. In the non-titled group, things improved a lot as well, with +65 ELO points the biggest gain and we hope to celebrate the IM title soon!

Encouraged by these results and by the fact that many participants want to come back, we decided that two camps are needed for 2020. One in June 2020, 8-14 and one in October 2020, 12-18.

Yes, we added an extra day and kept the same price for 2020. In June 2020 we are giving you the chance to train in person with GM Jacob Aagaard and GM Sabino Brunello. GM Sam Shankland will join us, budget allowing.

The concept remains the same; top Quality Chess training for every participant.

Join us in Crete, bring your friends and family, enjoy a chess holiday for yourself and let them enjoy the amazing resort themselves!
