We are happy to announce that due to great interest from adult chess players who are looking to improve their games, we are going to offer online chess instruction for adults.
Instruction will be organized in online camp/workshop format and split into two levels based on skill level and experience.
This level is ideal for people who are new to chess. They know the basic rules like how the pieces move and what check/checkmate is and have played a few games, but have not studied different strategies and tactics.
We're going to focus on basic opening principles and strategy, basic chess tactics and basic checkmate patterns.
This level is ideal for recreational chess players who are comfortable playing full games and know some basic opening principles, strategy and tactics. You know how to properly start a game and have no problem wining a game when you have a big advantage.
We're going to focus on main openings and how to play them properly, chess tactics (tricks to gain material advantage).
This level is ideal for players who are comfortable playing main openings such as Italian Game, Sicilian Defense, Queen's Gambit etc and know basic chess tactics such as forks, pins and discovered attacks.
Our focus in this workshop will be what to do after the opening. We will work on some common strategies and plans to set us up for success in our games.
