About Me

My name is Yuniesky Quesada. I got the grandmaster title in 2005. In 2010 I became a 2600s player, a qualification I have held for more than ten years. In 2015 I decided to be more active as a coach than a player, and I have been coaching since then.


I enjoy encouraging students to think more critically about any position and improving their analytic and reasoning skills. I do that through analyzing games, showing you puzzles, and finding you the most suitable opening to your style.

Good Student Match:

I am ready to work with all types of students!
