National Chess Master Nels Truelson has been state champion of both South Dakota where he won the title a record 12 times, and Minnesota where he was inducted into the state's Chess Hall of Fame. He has shared his passion for teaching chess many places including MN schools and summer chess camps coach. His proven method to success at chess involves your discovery of the game's fundamental question: How to make your pieces "do" more than your opponent's pieces?
