NATIONAL MASTER MAX SCHWARZ
Max is a National Master who got his start at ICA as first a student
and then a teacher. During his classes, Max tries to share not only
his chess knowledge, but also his passion for the game. Many of the
students who were once in his classes have gone on to teach chess
Despite his current busy schedule, Max has played on an ICA team in
the USATE tournament since 2002, only missing a single year. One of
his proudest chess accomplishments was when his team of friends made
through ICA came in 5th place in the 2017 USATE.
Outside of chess, Max has a Master's degree in Computational
Linguistics and works as a software engineer.
