I am amazed by the amount of improvement I am witnessing in our chess students after completing eight days of intense training at the Fremont Summer Chess Camp. Before dismissing my students for the weekend, I made sure everyone of them understood the fact that their efforts have already paid off! The fact is, “We all know more than we know we know.”-Thornton Wilder, The Eighth Day
We still have two more weeks of chess classes. Sign up for the Fremont Summer Chess Camp by clicking here.

The Torres Chess and Music Academy describes their latest event in the esteemed guest series for the Fremont Summer Chess Camp.
For Immediate Release:
Fremont, California 7/19/14
This past Thursday, chess master Eric Schiller came to guest lecture the students at the Fremont Summer Chess Camp. Having written two hundred top selling chess books, it’s a rarity for Eric to have time to perform in person. However, on July 17th, Eric Schiller managed to steal the spotlight at the sixth annual Fremont Summer Chess Camp.
Relaxed and highly personable, Schiller bantered amiably with the audience while presenting seven of his most exciting chess victories over famous adversaries. Perhaps the liveliest moments came during Eric’s analysis of his victory over International Master Emory Tate, who was also in the room. Every child in the room had their eyes glued to the massive movie screen where the ideas of Schiller and Tate came to life in vivid detail while the stars of the game explained their moves in depth. Eric Schiller’s presentation was highly polished and even in between games he managed to maintain the focus of close to fifty excited young chess players. At the conclusion of his lecture, Eric graciously awarded trophies to the winners of the weekly rated chess tournament as well as signed chess books for the scores of his young fans.
On July 24th the Torres Chess and Music Academy will be presenting Grandmaster Susan Polgar to the Bay Area. Single day tickets as well as full week camp subscriptions are still available. More information on the Torres Chess and Music Academy’s esteemed guest series can be found at www.ChessAndMusic.com.
The Torres Chess and Music Academy is constantly at work making sure the events we offer your children are the very best in California. Below are some images from week 3 of the 2014 Fremont Summer Chess Camp. There is still one more week left in our chess camp at Mission San Jose Elementary School which will feature instruction from International Master Emory Tate and Grandmaster Susan Polgar.

International Master Emory Tate stunned the Bay Area’s best young chess players by achieving a perfect score in a massive simultaneous chess exhibition at the Torres Chess and Music Academy’s Fremont Summer Chess Camp.
Fremont, California (PRWEB) July 13, 2014
For all those unaware of what a great chess player International Master Emory Tate truly is, the Torres Chess and Music Academy recommends playing through his recent win over Grandmaster Maurice Ashley in just 22 moves! For the children who participated in his simultaneous exhibition chess event on July 10th, Emory has achieved a legendary status.
Nearly 50 opponents, many of whom are some of the top ranked young chess players in the United States, took on the famed International Chess Master simultaneously. Emory Tate, who only had the white pieces in a few of the games, played for 5 hours and a walked nearly 2 miles while completing his simultaneous chess exhibition! During the course of this momentous task, Emory Tate emerged victorious on every single board.
“In sixteen years of running events like these, I have never witnessed this level of chess mastery in one of our simuls. Beyond making it look easy, Emory managed to make every child feel important.” -Chris Torres
The gentleman behind organizing this event was the very famous chess instructor Chris Torres. Mr. Torres is the founder of the Torres Chess and Music Academy which is very popular with the top scholastic chess players in Northern California. Every child who took part in the main event received one-on-one instruction following their game, an autograph from Emory Tate, a souvenir photograph of Emory at their board and the opportunity to learn from one of the strongest chess masters in the United States.
The Fremont Summer Chess Camp has two more weeks of classes and special events including a lecture from famed chess author Eric Schiller and a visit from Grandmaster Susan Polgar. For more information please visithttp://www.ChessAndMusic.com.

The Torres Chess and Music Academy is proud to present Susan Polgar to the Bay Area Scholastic Chess Community
Fremont, CA (PRWEB) June 27, 2014
The Torres Chess and Music Academy is inviting Northern California scholastic chess players to see firsthand why Susan Polgar was named the Top Chess Trainer in the World for 2014 by FIDE. Polgar is not only the first coach from the United States, but is also the first woman to be awarded with this honor by the international chess organization. FIDE, which was founded in 1924 in Paris, is an international organization that acts as the governing body of global chess competition and the sole provider of international chess titles. GM Susan Polgar will be visiting the critically acclaimed Fremont Summer Chess Camp as a special guest instructor, and will deliver her empowering chess lessons in person.
“For more than a decade, the Torres Chess and Music Academy has been providing youth chess players in California with the very best educational opportunities. Besides being the World’s Best Chess Trainer, Susan is a former World Chess Champion and a global symbol of women’s achievement in intellectual competition. This summer, our chess teachers are of such high quality that parents will regret taking their chess kids anywhere else.” – Chris Torres
At the Fremont Summer Chess Camp, Susan will be joined by several other illustrious chess coaches, including the justifiably famous chess instructor, International Master Emory Tate. Also appearing there will be National Master, Eric Schiller. In addition to his titles, Dr. Schiller also happens to be the world’s most prolific chess author. A chess camp at Mission San Jose Elementary would be incomplete without MSJE Head Coach, Joe Lonsdale. Based on his many national championships with MSJE, Joe is widely recognized as the best scholastic chess coach west of New York City.
Whether you child is a beginner or has been playing for years, the Fremont Summer Chess Camp, a grand time will be had by all. Chris Torres, Torres Chess and Music Academy President and Editor of the California Chess Reporter, will personally see to it that all children are being well-served.
