GM Cristian Chirila


GM Cristian Chirila

GM Ioan-Cristian Chirila was born in Bucharest, Romania in 1991. He was introduced to chess at the age of five by his father, and by the age of 13, took 9th place at the 2004 Romanian Men’s Chess Championship. As you would expect from such a fast learner, he dominated Romanian junior chess, both individually and in team events. In 2007, he won the World Youth Championship in the U/16 category.

Dr. Judit Sztaray

I've been volunteering for BAC since 2012 and became Executive Director in March, 2014.
My mission is to bring BayAreaChess to the next level in both the enrichment and the tournament side. I have a special interest in developing and offering a sustainable platform where kids can start with chess at the very beginning and develop to their fullest potential at whatever level they want to reach.

Wolfgang Behm

Wolfgang has been a prominent coach of BayAreaChess from the beginning and has coached many enrichment sites, many schools and clubs over the years. Currently, he is the Lead Coach of BAC's Beginner Team, and Saturday evening club. He holds a degree in Philosophy.
