Looking for help with your chess game?


I am a Senior Master currently rated 2500 USCF, the reigning Massachusetts, Denker, and Ohio champion. In 2014, I became the youngest ever to capture the MA state title, and in 2015 I won the New England Open. At the scholastic level, in addition to winning Denker, I have won four national championships and eight state championships, including four consecutive high school championships.

I am very experienced with both scholastic and open competition. I know what it takes to succeed at either level, and I am looking to help motivated and active tournament players of Class C or above fulfill their goals. I am a very well-rounded player and can offer assistance in improving opening repertoire, calculation, intuitive thinking, endgame technique, and miscellaneous skills that will give you an edge during competition!

Please contact me at mk.brattain@gmail.com or 339-223-1971 with any inquiries!




Registration is now open until September 30th!

Each Class Size is Limited to 16 kids!

I wanted to thank everyone for participating in this years event. It was a huge success and everyone really seemed to enjoy the venue as all the comments I received were positive.

Emma Cheng and Ethan Fang take down the "Terminator"

"Aren't you going to finish the game? " My favorite quote from young Emma when Arnold came around thinking he was just going to sign an autograph.
He would have been better off just signing the autograph as she was up a piece only 7 moves into the game! Ethan did just as well as he was up several pieces and a pawn 15 -20 moves into the game.
The "Terminator" might be an avid chess player but he is no match for these two young chess players from CCL! GM Georgiev commented that Arnold did know his openings fairly well but it just goes to show you that hard work and study will pay off as Emma and Ethan were just too much for him.
Emma put it best... "Hasta la vista baby!
