GM Akobian's Ratings
GM Akobian has been instrumental in the success of our chess club, Temecula Chess Club. He has visited our club providing lectures and simultaneous exhibitions. He also has met with and encouraged our younger scholastic chess team members. Var Akobian has provided our members with individual instruction and is very active in helping us promote chess events for our club. I have personally taken lessons from GM Akobian, and have discovered that in addition to having complete understanding of the game is able to see what I as an individual am struggling with. I am glad that we have Var in the chess world, it is GMs like him that make this game enjoyable and an activity that I am now having fun introducing my kids to. Simple Chess! is a motto in our family.
