Thomas Hodo

Hello, My Name is Thomas Hodo. I started playing chess at the age of 9 and have been around it ever since. I’ve have played and won in tournaments in the past but my ultimate goal is to introduce “the game of life” to all who want to learn, and expose all the secrets of chess hidden within. I am currently a freelance chess coach in the Chicago area.
