My name is Tiger Hillarp (-Persson). I’m a chess Grand Master who believes that unless chess is fun one should not play it at all. I will do all in my power to ban boredom from this page. I started playing chess at the age of 13 and during my many years of playing I’ve won my fair share of tournaments and published a book: “Tiger’s Modern” for Quality Chess. This website is partly for the public, but mainly for players that I coach. If you are interested in coaching you can contact me.
