Monday, October 31st, 2011


Play Like a Master in Thanksgiving Chess Camp Break
Ashburn Chess Club hosts former Soviet junior champion Nikolay Andrianov for holiday camp.

  • By Herky del Mundo
  • 9:14am

Former Soviet junior champion and renowned world chess trainer International Master Nikolay Andrianov will lecture on how to play like a master in a chess camp during the Thanksgiving break.

The camp, sponsored by the Ashburn Chess Club, runs on Nov. 23, 25 and 26. The event combines both Soviet style of chess training and “chess is fun” breaks that feature short tourneys. It is intended to equip scholastic players with the skills to compete effectively in tournaments.

IM Andrianov specializes in chess coaching having attained a baccalaureate degree from the top school for sports and chess training in the former Soviet Union, the Moscow Central Physical & Sports Institute.

The theme “Play Like a Master” covers the afternoon class, which is scheduled Wednesday, Friday and Saturday during the break from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Another theme “How to Beat an Advanced Player” runs on the same days from 9 a.m. to noon.

IM Nikolay Andrianov regularly visits the club, and has been instrumental in training advanced scholastic players in the Loudoun area. Clark Smiley, one of last summer’s campers, has since gained a 450-rating point increase. He had 170 points increase during the camp, which he attended all-day. A month later, Smiley won $1,500 in the 43rd Annual Atlantic Open with a perfect score.

IM Andrianov not only trains young players, but had been a second and trainer for Vassily Smyslov and former women’s world champion Maya Chiburdanidze. He has also been the coach/trainer for the Greek National team and was responsible for at least three Greek players becoming grandmasters. He has also taught in Ukraine, Russia, Indonesia and the Philippines.

Early registrants can take advantage of discounts if they enroll before Nov. 5. Online registration is available at http://ashburnchessclub.com.
