Ready to continue your chess journey? Register today to learn more fundamentals of chess including rule nuances, piece development, and strategical tactics.
This class has four main objectives:
Setting up the board properly, adhering to the rules of the game (i.e. how different pieces move), understanding basic rule nuances such as castling, and the difference between checkmate and stalemate.
Proper piece development (i.e. minor pieces before major pieces), piece values, controlling the center, undefended pieces, trading when ahead and basic tactical ideas (i.e. pins, skewers, forks).
Basic opening theory, basic endgame principles (achieving king opposition in the endgame), endgame checkmates (rook, queen, two bishops), more advanced middle-game tactical concepts (i.e. windmill, common mating nets)
When is it time to attack vs. defend? On which squares do your pieces belong? How can you create a tactical idea? When does piece initiative matter more than material?
This class is for students in late elementary, middle school, or high school that know the basics of how to play chess but want to take their game to the next level.
