Question: am I a chess coach or a chess trainer or chess teacher or chess instructor? What is the difference?

I don't think there is much difference, so you can call yourself whatever you like.

Sohail, in terms of the English language, there is indeed not much difference.

However, I note that you hold the FIDE Instructor title. You must not describe yourself as a FIDE Trainer, as that is a more senior title.

Yes, I am aware of the difference, I am asking for the meaning of the terms alone.
As someone wrote she is "chess coach" on her instagrm page.

The approach of the white king to the centre in the rook ending is simple and sufficient.

Means in all rook endings?

No, it means in this particular rook ending.

Thanks. Is demanding an approving word?

What's a modest move or continuation?
A modest move is a cautious move that doesn't risk anything. It's the opposite of a bold/risky move.

For example, if you've reached a position that is easily drawn, a modest move would keep the position drawn, but with no chance of winning. (A bold/risky move would try to win, but also with the possibility of losing.)
So how does it differ froom a cautious or safe move?

Thanks. Can we say that a modest move is not a gready move and is based on making yourself content with the currect state of affairs?

Forced, as otherwise the rook transfer Ra2-a5 is immediately decisive.


What is 'rook transfer'?
