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
Part A (7 weeks)
In this course, students will learn more tactics that win material and study checkmating patterns that can happen in the middle game.
Part B (7 weeks)
In Part B, we focus on the endgame and how to convert material and positional advantages into wins.
At the end of this course, students will be given an online test. Students passing with a rate of 80% or higher, will receive a Certificate of Completion.
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.
