My name is Erik Kislik. I am a 30-year-old International Master from California. My peak USCF rating is 2500 and my peak FIDE rating is 2432. My story in chess is a little bit unusual because of its rarity. I was unrated at age 20 and ended up becoming an International Master within just 3 years. During that time, I was studying chess very seriously with an organized and methodical training schedule. A lot of the insights and conclusions I came to from improving so rapidly are fundamental aspects of my chess philosophy and teaching approach. Currently, I am the only coach that is the full-time trainer of 3 players rated approximately 2650 FIDE and above. Among other players, I coach the champions of Spain, Iceland, and Singapore. In 2017, I won Analysis of the Year from the Chess Journalists of America, and in 2016 and 2017, I reached the number one spot on the ICC teachers' list for multiple months. My book Applying Logic in Chess is currently (June 2018) ranked #1 on Amazon for new chess releases, detailing my full approach to thinking about every aspect of the game and improving as rapidly as possible. Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)with your thoughts or concerns about chess improvement even if you are unsure if you want lessons.
