About me

IM Christof Sielecki, FIDE Rating 2435 as of September 2016.
I am a professional chess teacher and chess content producer
for 5 years now, known for my Youtube Channel "Chessexplained" and various works
on chess theory. I have published a book on the Nimzo and Bogo Indian and created
Video content for Chess24 on the Ruy Lopez and English Opening.

Playing experience

I have been playing in the top leagues of Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium for many years. Since starting my chess teaching business I have focused on my German Team, helping it to promote from the 7th German league to the 2nd League. My best individual result was winning the Latschach Open 2013 ahead of many GMs.

Other experiences

I am regularly streaming live for Chess24 and the Internet Chess Club(ICC). This includes entertaining Blitz session as well as serious live tournament coverage up to the level of a World Championship Candidates Tournament.
