White Plains Tournament Classes - Winter 2019
The National Scholastic Chess Foundation (NSCF) is proud to announce our most advanced classes. These classes are focused on specifically improving student's games in tournaments. There are two levels: Intermediate and Advanced. A USCF rating is required to attend these classes.
Intermediate Group Lessons are especially for active tournament players within the rating range of 600 - 1099 USCF. Over the course of 9 weeks of 90 minute classes, instructor Jon Rigai will cover basic tactical pattern recognition and how to become a better all around player. Understanding how to reduce blunders in one's own game is critical for making the jump in rating and getting into the Championship section in chess tournaments.
Advanced Group Lessons are especially for active tournament players rated 1100+ USCF. Over the course of 9 weeks of 120 minute classes, instructor Jon Rigai will deal with positional and tactical concepts which are quite challenging (5 move combinations and up). The implementation of a chess engine and storing one's games in a database will be emphasized. In addition, Jon will be covering many master level games with an focus on improving the critical thinking process, and understanding how masters handle various positions.
