Welcome to my site!
My name is Arthur Kogan and I have been a chess player for more than 25 years!
I have been an International grandmaster for many years.Chess is both a job and a passion, the greatest combination possible.I love chess and trully believe that it is not only a great game, but a great "tool" and "excuse" to travel around the world meeting interesting people.
I have also been a trainer for many years and I feel honored to share my chess knowledge with others so they can experience the joy that chess has given me.
OLALA is a famous expression that, I guess, is original from France. I was lucky to live there for a few years (and I still have many French friends!) and somehow I liked so much to hear very often this 'OLALA' and to discover that it is used for many different situations with different meanings, all depends on the way or tone you pronounce it!In this case I mainly use the 'OLALA' to describe an especial chess style, that I tried to follow during the years in my chess games and also tried to pass to my chess students and chess friends!
