About Me

Hello my fellow Chess Players!


My name is Yaacov Norowitz, it had been said that I am only a blitz specialist... And I understand that since I could not play in the past in any of the norm tournaments until recently.  I did after all spent close to a decade playing blitz and even more time around Washington Square Park!

But my Blitz is only a tip of the Iceberg!

I have recently found a way to go and get my norms and in a short while picked up my IM norms in short order in the Bahamas, World Open and Iceland.

I hope to get my GM Norms in the near future!

I have an unique approach to chess, which I use in my own games and in my lessons for my students.

It's based on understanding about "BUILDING" on colors, light and dark in "HARMONY". 

With pieces and pawns as "BUILDERS" and "BRICKS". We will learn how the pieces and pawns each contribute to the "HARMONY" factor thru all of the stages of the game.

We will review your games and discuss the ideas.
No matter what level or skill everyone needs a Chess Coach.  I am no different or special in that regard. My Chess Play & Style comes from my Chess Coach, GM Roman Dzindzichashvili. 
I am not cheap, but my lessons are well worth it!
