Lower Bucks County Scholastic Chess League


Bela's Corner

Lorand Bela Kis, one of the most decorated chess players in Pennsylvania, coaches the New Hope Academy team at the Yardley Campus. His vision, shared by LBCSCL, is to give all local chess players access to coaching. This option to better their games, should raise the level of play in Southeastern PA.

In that vision, Bela created a web series through YouTube for all players to utilize to better their games. Welcome to Bela's Corner!
