Every year Francisco Anchondo returns to Mission San Jose Elementary School to put on another exciting show full of opening traps and tactical brilliances for our students at the Fremont Summer Chess Camp. Francisco Anchondo has been teaching chess for decades and regularly coaches many of the top players from around Northern California. A recent article on our chess camp included a nice description of Mr. Anchondo’s contributions to chess and society:

Francisco Anchondo returns for his third year of teaching at the Fremont Summer
Chess Camp at Mission San Jose Elementary School. Francisco regularly competes
in chess tournaments in several western states as well as in Mexico. Francisco
Anchondo is feared for his tactical bravado at the chess board while loved for
his generosity in providing chess lessons to economically disadvantaged children
and schools. Outside of chess, Francisco is an advocate for veterans of war and
a role model for other Gulf War Vets.

United States G/30 National Chess Championship: Francisco Anchondo

October 3, 2011

Francisco Anchondo demonstratated his usual tactical bravado in the fourth round of the 2011 National G/30 Chess Championship. His opponent, Eric Schiller, attempted to play a rather dull carro-kann but Francisco steered the game into a violent fantasy variation. I was glad to see such an exciting game take place in the open section and believe that Francisco Anchondo’s overall tournament performance should provide adequate proof that dynamic chess can be very successful at national championship events.
