    Testimonials


    "We would like to take a moment to thank Bay Area Chess coaches GM Zviad Izoria and IM Faik Aleskerov for their valuable guidance and coaching BAC First team. Our daughter has been attending First team in San Jose since October-2018 and she won a trophy on Sunday 3/10 at CalChess Scholastic tournament. She is rated at 137 but was able to beat three competitors who were rated between 320- 350. Her game skills and application of strategy has improved significantly as obvious from her performance. Thanks again BAC for your excellent coaching!" Sheikji N., chess parent - 3/13/19
