Hi, my name is Martin Istvanovszki, and I am a professional chess player and chess instructor based in Hungary.

I earned the FIDE Master title at the age of 18 in 2010, just a few years after winning the Rapid European Championship in the U12 category. Since 2012, I have been involved in teaching beginners and advanced players, as well as preparing them for competitions.

The training plans are always tailored to individual needs for all of my students. My goal is to reform the way my students think and guide them towards an intuitive, alternative way of thinking.

Online coaching

Online coaching always involves individual and personalized sessions. The session’s topic can be based on specific requests, chosen from offline learning materials, or entrusted to me for selection. Additionally, there is an option for practice games, followed by a collective analysis of our games. The scheduling of online coaching sessions is a matter of arrangement, and the sessions are typically conducted on Skype. Furthermore, students will receive the lesson material in an offline-accessible and reviewable format.
