GM & CHESS INSTRUCTOR & AUTHOR
Currently Based out of Hungary, Alex "Sasha" Chernin is a former World Champion candidate, as well as former Soviet co-champion. Chernin has also authored a number of best selling books, the most famous of which is the "Pirc Alert!"
Conceptually, Chernin is hailed as a master of the Chess Opening, a tribute to his "ability to prepare players to play an opening using “ideas rather than memorized lines” (ChessCafe.com columnist Carsten Hansen)." Chernin's talent as a trainer is all the more amazing because of his ability to perceive the general trends in chess culture, and to train his students to master future obstacles. In other words, "Chernin gives you theory as it will be in 10 years!” (GM Alex Beliavsky)."
