Do You Want A Chess GM To Be Your or Your Kids Coach?

GM Ziaur Rahman of Bangladesh
( from )

[ GiLoCatur : What a good opportunity to have a chess Grandmaster to teach and guide you or your children in chess. Since our country has yet to have one, we are lucky to "import" (have one like) him here in Malaysia if you are looking a GM to be your or your kids coach. Or maybe you want to promote chess in your area, book him for a simul or a chess workshop or seminar. How much the cost? You need to check with Najib Wahab. ]
