About me

Hello, my name is Aleksandar Tomić, 26 years old international master from Montenegro. I was two times champion of Montenegro U21, winner of few internacional tournaments,3rd in Montenegro in 2021. I want to share my knowledge with you.

Playing experience

I started to play chess when i was 10,all these years play it with big passion. I played many tournaments, one of my best wins is against Yugoslovenian legend Predrag Nikolić in 2017 on Bosnian Premier league with black pieces.Also some nice result is draw against Yu Yangui on first Macedonian league,i had big winning chances ! :D

Teaching experience

I work as a chess coach for few years.My biggest successes as a coach are two gold medals on Swiss Championship U12 and U16, two beautiful girls,and also second place of my student from Montenegro,U14.

Other experiences

I am big sports lover !

Best skills

I don't have best skills,just you have to work every day ! To be consistent not only in chess,in everything !

Teaching methodology

1 hour a day is enough,but you have to work every day !
My advice is 30 min solving puzzles to refresh your head,than in agreement with your coach obligatory work is on endgames and on calculation ! All depends of level but you have always to work ond endgames and on calculation,if you are amateur player than big attention is on strategic motives ! Big mistake is to work hard on openings until you reach some decent chess level !
