Students who have not completed Level 2 are required to pass a placement test or have instructor permission prior to starting this series of classes.
Developing Technique in Middle Games and Endgames
Classes require a minimum of 8 registrations or they may be cancelled or re-scheduled. Classes have a maximum of 14 students to ensure everyone gets plenty of individual attention. For this semester we are offering 3B only. We will do a quick review of concepts from 3A in the first class and then move onto the rest of the level.
In this course, students will learn more tactics that win material and study checkmating patterns that can happen in the middle game.
In Part B, we focus on the endgame and how to convert material and positional advantages into wins.
It is expected that students completing this course will be able to initiate and maintain control of a process that, if properly executed, will result in victory. Upon completion of Part B, students’ chess knowledge should correspond to a US Chess over-the-board rating of approximately 1200.
Tuesday Class: 8 weeks from October 26 through December 14, 2021.
