Learn Chess, About the Experience

Learn chess in Temiskaming Shores with Luc BoucherYou will get to learn and play at two locations for this chess experience. After greeting you at The Little Crooked House in Haileybury, we will establish your prior knowledge with the game of chess and we will set outcome goals for the session.

Using simple and fun methods, we will learn the rules of the game and develop strategies and tactics as we immerse ourselves in the chess universe. For the second hour, we will go at the Haileybury marina on my sailboat to continue the session. We will remain docked, enjoying the view of beautiful lake Temiskaming, while we continue to improve our chess skills.  Here is the AirBnB link to Luc’s experience.  You may want to contact directly Luc for details or to see for other availabilities.  Take a look at their web site of the Little Crooked House, a vacation rental home their family own and you will find his contact information.

Luc Boucher is a teacher, a chess tournament organizer and a chess coach. He loves introducing and making people understand the game of chess. His expertise lies in demystifying the game of chess.  He has been coaching chess since 2003 and I have seen thousands of students through tournaments I have organized at local, regional and provincial levels.  All of his 4 children have participated at the National level.
