      The Experience

      Join one of chess's most distinguished and popular grandmasters, Maurice Ashley, in New York City for an in-depth lesson and private game. Over the course of two hours, Maurice will help you identify weaknesses in your game, capitalize on your strengths, and develop tactics for sharpening your skills as you tackle the obstacles keeping you from reaching your potential. Then you'll put his advice into action as you play the grandmaster himself in a head-to-head match. Whether you are an experienced player looking to elevate your game or just getting started, this private session will have you feeling like a grandmaster yourself. This is a unique opportunity for a personal audience with one of the world’s greatest, and most engaging, chess minds.

      Details

      • Private chess lesson with Maurice Ashley in New York City lasting two (2) hours including at least one head-to-head game. 
      • Lessons are for one (1) player but a limited number of friends or family are welcome to observe
      • Experience can take place at the residence, office, or hotel of your choice within NYC's boroughs, or else Maurice will gladly be your host at his home in New York.  IfOnly can also arrange other locations for a nominal fee.
