ImagesSaturday Afternoon Chess Club @ Los Gatos

New Chess Club in the heart of Los Gatos with GM Zviad Izoria and Coach Abel Talamantez.

All levels of players are welcome, from beginner to advanced!


Here is our recap after the opening weekend at Los Gatos - written by Coach Abel

We had our very first Los Gatos club class this past Saturday and it was an amazing success! BAC Coach & Grandmaster Zviad Izoria (USCF rated 2711) worked with a relatively strong group of club class players that ranged in rating from 800-1350. They spent about an hour in lecture and discussion and then matched up to play. Coach Abel worked with the new and beginner players and went over the pattern of mating with a queen and king vs a lone king. During a break we played some bughouse and had a lot of fun with it. It was a very fast two hours!

The facility at the Addison-Penzak Jewish Community Center is an outstanding facility and has many comfortable areas for parents to wait if they choose to stay. Our chess room is well equipped for lecture and play and we have access to more space should our numbers grow, and we do expect to see growth in our club, especially with the opportunity to work with and interact with such a strong GM, and a class that is suitable for both strong players and beginners because of our staffing. 

We look forward to seeing this class flourish! Please contact us if you're interested in participating in this fun new club class on Saturdays from 4-6 PM."

Hope to see many of you there!
